Day 1
You will be met at Johannesburg Airport and transferred to your hotel in this thriving city.
    
Check in and relax under warm blue South African skies in the city of gold.
Day 2
Today we recommend an optional full day shared Johannesburg tour - starting with a visit to the Apartheid Museum, a living memorial to racial segregation.
 
We continue to the sprawling township of Soweto for lunch (own account). Here we visit the Hector Pieterson Museum and drive past the original home of Nelson Mandela in Vilikazi Street, with option of visiting this small museum (entrance fee for own account), before returning to Johannesburg in the late afternoon.
Day 3
Transfer to Johannesburg Airport and check in at the Federal Airlines kiosk situated in the Bus terminal behind the Intercontinental Hotel. From there you will be transferred to their departure terminal for your light aircraft flight to the beautiful malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve.
 
After checking in to your lodge, enjoy your first thrilling game drive in an open-top game viewing vehicle accompanied by a lodge ranger. Game viewing opportunities should present themselves almost immediately in this vast game sanctuary and hopefully you will see several species of antelope, zebra, wildebeest and maybe even wild dogs - as well as several of the Big Five today. Then dine under the stars in the African bushveld.
 
Note: As you will be flying in a light aircraft, you can take only soft sports bags that will fit into the aircraft baggage pods, with a maximum weight of 20 kg that is strictly enforced for safety reasons and not exceeding 16 x 12 x 24 inches (40 x 30 x 60 cm) in size. You can also take 5 kg in hand luggage. Rigid suitcases can be stored at the Fedair terminal in Johannesburg free of charge.
Days 4 To 5
Rise at dawn to take advantage of the best game viewing conditions of the day, as you enjoy a thrilling open-top game viewing drive with your lodge ranger in the Madikwe Game Reserve. Explore the vast plains, which offer magnificent game viewing and the opportunity to search for all of the Big 5 - Lion, Elephant, Buffalo, Leopard and Rhino - before returning to your lodge for breakfast.
  
The rest of the morning is free to relax by the swimming pool or enjoy bird watching, before setting out again in the late afternoon for another game drive. With numerous different species of mammals and reptiles in the park you can hope to see cheetah, giraffe, hippo, kudu, crocodiles, sable antelope, waterbuck, warthogs, baboons, wild dogs and many other interesting animals. Outstanding bird watching is also guaranteed!
  
After a beautiful African sunset, enjoy the balmy evening and pristine stars of the Milky Way as you have never seen them before – as well as the spectacular Southern Cross.
 
Note: Children < 6 are not allowed on open top game drives at most lodges, but child-friendly lodges are available on request.
Day 6
Enjoy a final early morning game drive in Madikwe Game Reserve, before your light aircraft flight to Johannesburg Airport for your onward flight.
 
Note: As you will be flying in a light aircraft, you can take only soft sports bags that will fit into the aircraft baggage pods, with a maximum weight of 20 kg that is strictly enforced for safety reasons and not exceeding 16 x 12 x 24 inches (40 x 30 x 60 cm) in size. You can also take 5 kg in hand luggage.

You will be met at Cape Town Airport and transferred to your hotel in this beautiful city, within sight of Table Mountain.
 
Check in and relax in your magnificent surroundings.
Day 7
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.
Day 8
Today we recommend an optional full day shared tour to the beautiful Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, where you may see baboons, ostrich and perhaps even dolphins or whales in season (July/November).
  
Your tour travels through Hout Bay and along spectacular Chapman’s Peak Drive to the Cape Point peninsula, returning via Simons Town, Fish Hoek, Constantia and Kirstenbosch Gardens. This is a scenic tour of the whole Cape Peninsula, with the optional opportunity of visiting the penguin colony at Boulders Beach.
Day 9
At leisure to relax and explore the "Mother City" of Cape Town.
 
Many optional activities are available in this beautiful city. You can visit Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned (advance booking essential in season) and explore the vibrant Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.
 
You can also take the Hop Off bus (Blue Route) to visit world famous Kirstenbosch Gardens, enjoy a city tour or simply relax on golden Camps Bay Beach.
Day 10
Today we recommend an optional full day shared tour to the renowned Stellenbosch Winelands, travelling through the scenic Franschhoek Valley where a handful of French Huguenot refugees started South Africa’s now famous wine industry.
 
Explore the historic university town of Stellenbosch and several wine estates on this famous wine route, which stretched from Paarl through to Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Enjoy a cellar tour and some wine tasting, before returning to Cape Town in the late afternoon.
Day 11
Transfer to Cape Town Airport for your flight home.
