Fly into the OR Tambo International Airport where you will be welcomed before the transfer to your hotel. On arrival at the hotel, you’ll then have the remainder of the day to spend at leisure.
Having been collected from your hotel, you’ll head away from the city towards the Mpumalanga region to visit the famous Kruger National Park. Before you time in the park gets underway, you’ll have chance to freshen up at your lodge before embarking on a afternoon of game viewing – which could include the chance to spot the 'Big Five'. After your afternoon excursion, you’ll then return to your lodge for dinner and your overnight stay.
After breakfast at your lodge, you’ll head out for a day exploring the stunningly scenic Panorama Route – which is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful trips in the region. Along the way, you’ll have chance to take in dramatic landscapes at every turn as you explore landmarks such as Gods Window and the Blyde River Canyon; one of the largest canyons of its type anywhere in the world. As part of your trip, you’ll also call in at the Bourke’s Luck Potholes and visit the former gold mining camp at Graskop before heading back to your lodge for a second night.
After a quick tea or coffee, you’ll head out early in the morning for an open vehicle game drive, which includes a pre-packed breakfast to eat on the go. With your guide helping to point out the various species that are to be found within the park, you’ll spend the morning exploring before heading back to your lodge for lunch (own cost) and the chance to relax for a while. In the afternoon, you’ll then embark on a further game drive in a closed vehicle before dinner back at the lodge to end the day.
Following breakfast, you’ll leave the national park behind to make a return to Johannesburg; heading for the airport to board a flight to Cape Town. On arrival, you’ll be transferred onwards to your hotel where the remainder of the day is yours to spend at leisure.
Your first day in Cape Town will provide the chance to explore the Cape Peninsula on a day long trip, which includes a visit to Cape Point – where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans are said to meet. Returning to Cape Town, you’ll then pay a visit to the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens before heading back to your hotel for the night. The following day is spent at leisure exploring Cape Town under your own steam, with the chance to spend time exploring the many attractions or to book onto an excursion (own cost) to the likes of Table Mountain or Robben Island – the latter being the place where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for much of his time behind bars.
Leaving Cape Town behind, you’ll hit the road towards Oudtshoorn; known as the centre of the world’s ostrich farming industry. Along the way, you’ll stop off for a wine tasting along Route 62 and be able to visit a local farm school (subject to school times) where you can interact with teachers and students to learn more about their communities. Once you arrive in Oudtshoorn, you’ll enjoy a guided tour of an ostrich farm before heading for your hotel for the night.
Following breakfast, you’ll once again hit the road and head out towards the Cango Caves; a collection of stunning limestone caverns that have been naturally sculpted through time. Travelling across the scenic Outeniqua Pass, you’ll spent time exploring the historical town of George and marvelling at the beauty of Victoria Bay. You’ll then continue on to the overnight halt in the 'oyster box of South Africa', where you’ll check into your hotel for the next two nights.
Following breakfast, you’ll embark on a morning lagoon cruise to the Featherbed Nature Reserve, with the option of taking a further trip to the top of the Western Head to marvel at the impressive views below. Following lunch, you are then free to spend the rest of the day exploring at leisure.
After breakfast, you’ll travel on to the city of Port Elizabeth where your trip comes to an end. Guests may disembark on request at Port Elizabeth Airport to board a flight to their onward destination.
