Day 1
You will be met at Johannesburg Airport by your guide, who will drive you 4-hours to Mpumalanga - "the place where the sun rises", driving eastwards through Witbank, before dropping several hundred feet into the subtropical Lowveld and the scenic Drakensberg Panorama Route.
 
Check in and relax in this region that is famous for its wildlife.
Day 2
This morning experience the splendour of the Drakensberg Panorama Route as we transfer through the green Blyde River Canyon, the third largest canyon in the world.
 
Enjoy wonderful views from Pinnacle Rock, Wonder View and the Three Rondavels lookout, with the option to take the Graskop Gorge lift (pay locally if you wish to do this activity, as it involves a fairly strenuous walk with plenty of steps & crossing a suspension bridge). Also visit the Lisbon Falls and the unusual Bourkes Luck Pot Holes - cylindrical holes formed from the swirling waters of the Blyde and Treur Rivers.
  
We continue to Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre where you have the unique opportunity of viewing wild lion, leopard, cheetah, eagles and vultures at close quarters. Animals found injured, poisoned or orphaned are given a second chance and released back into the wild. Afterwards check into your next lodge in this beautiful region.
 
Note: Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre is closed on Sundays.
Day 3
Today we enter the world famous Kruger National Park.
 
Game viewing opportunities should present themselves almost immediately and hopefully you will see several species of antelope, zebra, wildebeest and maybe even giraffe before you reach your rest camp.
  
The Kruger National Park offers a choice of self-catering rest camps, each situated in a different section of the park with its own unique flora and fauna - e.g. Skukuza, Letaba, Olifants, Lower Sabie, Pretoriuskop, Satara and Berg-en-Dal. Accommodation is in simple but comfortable thatched bungalows, with your guide having an allowance to purchase breakfast at the camp restaurant each day.
 
After checking in, settle in and relax in the atmosphere that only the African bushveld can provide.
 
Note: You will need your passport to enter the Kruger National Park.
Days 4 To 5
Today is devoted to game viewing in the Kruger National Park. As you will have the services of a private driver/guide, you will have the flexibility of discussing preferred routings and travelling times with him each day. However we recommend setting off early each morning as the camp gates open (04h30 to 06h00 depending on the season), to take advantage of the best game viewing conditions of the day. All game drives will be in your guide's closed air-conditioned vehicle.
 
Explore this vast 2-million hectare game sanctuary that is the size of Wales, offering magnificent game viewing opportunities with the highest concentration of lion in the whole of Africa. Hope to see several of the Big Five today - lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino - as well as many other species before returning to your rest camp for breakfast (or buy provisions at camp and cook breakfast at a picnic spot).
 
The rest of the morning is free to relax at your rest camp, before setting out again at the time of your choice - usually the late afternoon - for another game drive. For each full day that you stay in the park (excluding transfer days) you will have one game drive in a large open-top vehicle operated by the park authorities (normally at night) but this can be substitued for a day drive or bush walk, subject to availability.
 
With nearly 150 different species of mammals and over 100 species of reptiles in the Kruger National 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, with over 500 different bird species including many different eagles, kingfishers, vultures and storks.
  
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: Vehicles are not allowed to drive off-road in any national park in South Africa. Children < 12 are not allowed on open top game drives, but may enjoy unlimited game drives in your guide's vehicle. Minimum age of 16 for bush walks.
Day 6
Enjoy some final early morning game viewing in the Kruger National Park.
 
Afterwards transfer 2-hours to Mpumalanga Airport for your onward flight.

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 enjoy a private tour of Cape Town, commencing with the ascent of Table Mountain by cable car to enjoy one of the world's most famous views (weather permitting, otherwise Signal Hill).
 
See the key sights of the city including Clifton, Sea Point, Greenmarket Square, Houses of Parliament and District Six, before enjoying a Harbour Cruise at the Waterfront.
 
Afterwards return transfer to your hotel, or remain at the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and explore its many shops and restaurants (return taxi to your hotel for own account).
Day 8
Today enjoy a full day private tour to the beautiful Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve.
 
We start with a short boat trip from Hout Bay to view Cape Fur seals at Seal Island and continue via Chapman’s Peak Drive to spectacular Cape Point where you may see baboons, ostrich and perhaps even dolphins or whales in season (July/November).
 
On the return journey we pass through naval Simons Town and visit the resident penguin colony at Boulders Beach. We also make a short stop at the world famous Kirstenbosch Gardens, before returning to your hotel in the late afternoon.
Day 9
At leisure to relax and explore the "Mother City" of Cape Town independently.
 
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 enjoy a full day private 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.
 
We visit two wine estates, with included wine tastings, and the historic university town of Stellenbosch before enjoying a picnic lunch at a wine estate (own account).
 
In the afternoon we visit a third wine estate and the Cheetah Outreach project in Somerset West. This community-based programme seeks to raise awareness of the plight of the cheetah and campaign for its survival. Observe these magnificent endangered cats up close, before returning to Cape Town.
Day 11
Transfer to Cape Town Airport for your flight home.
