Your tailor-made safari & beach holiday to South Africa

Penguins Umhlanga Thanda Tented

This itinerary combines a city break in Cape Town with a beach and safari stay on South Africa's east coast in the province of KwaZulu Natal. Whilst this trip is well suited to travel at any time of the year, it may particularly suit in South Africa's winter months from June to August where the weather in KwaZulu Natal is normally pleasantly warm and dry.

Four nights in Cape Town will allow the perfect amount of time to explore all that the city has to offer before a short flight will bring you to the coastal city of Durban offering a sub-tropical climate, beautiful beaches and an array of activities. The trip will conclude with a Big 5-safari in the Thanda Private Game Reserve around 3-4 hours north of Durban. You will stay at in a luxurious tented suite and enjoy exhilarating game drives, guided walks and candlelit dinners under African night sky.
