Cape Town & Kruger

14 Days

Cape Town, Winelands and Kruger National Park

14 Days – £2975 Per Person

A South Africa itinerary that focuses on real wilderness in far North Kruger National Park.

The Brief

A special celebration holiday where the main aim was to see the Big 5; Lion, Elephant, Buffalo, Leopard, and Rhinoceros.
Whilst a high level of comfort was important,  a feeling of authenticity and wilderness was more important. As well as safari, food & wine and sport were also key interests for the client.

May 2016 Departure

Day 1 – Fly London to Cape Town (overnight flight)
Private transfer from Cape Town airport to hotel
4 Nights at Underberg Guest House, Cape Town
Includes: bed & breakfast

With just 9 en-suite bedrooms this gracious owner-run guest house is in a perfect location. Tamboerskloof is a neighbourhood close enough to the best restaurants but far enough away from the centre to get a good nights rest.

Day 6 – Collect hire car (VW Polo) or similar and drive out to Franschhoek in the Cape Winelands
3 Nights at Maison Chablis Guest House, Franschhoek
Includes: bed & breakfast

A beautiful Georgian-style boutique bed & breakfast surrounded by mountains and close enough to the quaint village of Franschhoek with its restaurants, cafes and upmarket boutiques.

Day 9 – Drive to Cape Town Airport, drop car off
Fly Capetown to Hoedspruit
You will be met at arrivals for your transfer to The Outpost.
3 Nights at The Outpost, Kruger National Park
Includes: full board, locally branded drinks, 2 game drives or walking safaris per day

The Outpost lies in the Northernmost part of Kruger National Park. The Makuleke Region is the most remote part of Kruger, bordered by Zimbabwe to the North and Mozambique to the East. Being up in this area allows you to truly appreciate the scale of this seven and a half thousand square mile park.

The Outpost is set halfway up a hill, overlooking the Luvuvhu River. The view from the lodge and the 12 standalone en-suite rooms is simply breathtaking.

Day 12 – Transfer to Kings Camp in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve
2 Nights at Kings Camp, Timbavati Private Game Reserve
Includes: full board, locally branded drinks, 2 game drives or walking safaris per day

This private reserve shares a common, unfenced border with the Kruger park. This private reserve is all about game viewing and here there is a good chance of spotting the Big 5. 40 mammal species and 350 bird species have been identified within the area and it said to have the densest giraffe population in the world.

Just 8 generously spacious colonial style suites (and 2 honeymoon suites) luxuriously furnished and complete with Victorian clawfoot bath, indoor and outdoor double shower, fully stocked mini-bar and private verandah.

Day 14 – Transfer to Hoedspruit Airport. Fly Hoedspruit to London (via Jo’burg)
