This city is the administrative capital of South Africa and is renowned for its jacaranda trees that flower from September to November.
Day 2

Day 4
After breakfast this morning, we arrive in Kimberley around 09.30.
 
Here you will have the opportunity to disembark and visit the famous Big Hole and Diamond Open Mine Museum. With a surface area of over 40 acres and a perimeter of over 1 mile, this open-pit area was mined to a depth of over 3,000 feet at the height of the diamond rush – the largest hand-dug excavation in the world. At the museum view Eureka, the first recorded diamond discovered in South Africa.
 
At 13.00 we depart from Kimberley and continue travelling southwards through De Aar and Beauford West in the Great Karoo.

View imposing Table Mountain as you arrive at Cape Town Station around 12.00. Here you will be met and transferred to your hotel in this beautiful city.
Day 6
Today is free for independent sightseeing in Cape Town.
 
To orientate yourself, we suggest you purchase a pass onboard the convenient Red Route Hop-Off Bus, which stops at all Cape Town’s key sights and attractions, including the Table Mountain cable car (discounted tickets are sold on the bus). Here you can ascend and enjoy one of the world's most famous views.
 
Continue to trendy Camps Bay beach and the many attractions of the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront (pay all entrance fees locally).
 
Note: Don't let the colour of the bus confuse you. All buses are red, but they run two different routes - the Red City Route and the Blue Kirstenbosch Route.

You will be met at Port Elizabeth Airport and transferred 2-hours to your malaria-free private game reserve near Addo in the beautiful Eastern Cape.
