Highlights of South Africa Cape Town, Winelands and Kruger

One of our most popular itineraries, this 3-part itinerary takes in the iconic city of Cape Town, and its many attractions and is followed by a slowing down in pace in the picturesque South African winelands, known as the gastronomic route of South Africa. The third and final element of the trip is in the north of the country, a Big-5 safari in the Thornybush Private Game Reserve bordering South Africa's famous Kruger National Park. Spend your time on exciting morning and afternoon game drives. During your down time you can laze by the pool or have a siesta. Candlelit evening meals will be spent under the African night sky.
