Day 1
You will be met at Johannesburg Airport by your guide, who will introduce you to the beauty of Eastern Transvaal on your 4-hour drive through farmlands and mountains to Mpumalanga and the scenic Drakensberg Panorama Route - the gateway to the famous Kruger National Park.
 
We drive via Lydenburg and the scenic Long Tom Pass, from where Boer guns battered the British during the South African War, before checking into our hotel in the warm Lowveld.
Day 2
This morning we visit Hazyview Elephant Sanctuary to experience a very special close-up encounter. You can hold their trunks and feed two of these gentle giants, with total interaction time of 1.5-hours.
 
Balance of day is free to relax at your lodge or explore more of the beautiful Panorama Route with your guide (pay any entrance fees locally).
Day 3
Today enjoy a scenic 3-hour transfer through the green Blyde River Canyon - the third largest on earth, where you can enjoy wonderful views from God's Window.
 
In the early afternoon 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 lodge in this region famous for its wildlife.
 
Note: Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre is closed on Sundays.
Day 4
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 5 To 6
Today is devoted to game viewing in the Kruger National Park. As you will have the services of a private driver/guide throughout your safari, you will have the flexibility of discussing preferred routings and travelling times 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 air-conditioned vehicle.
 
Explore this vast 2-million hectare game sanctuary that is the size of Wales, offering magnificent game viewing opportunities and 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 by the camp swimming pool and enjoy bird watching, before setting out again at the time of your choice - usually the late afternoon - for another game drive with your guide. 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 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. If you are tall and remain in your chair for your game drives, please be aware there will be some restrictions on your viewing due to the height of the windows in the accessible vehicle. There are no restrictions if you transfer into one of the regular seats.
Day 7
Enjoy some final game viewing in the Kruger National Park, before transferring 5-hours  through the scenic Eastern Transvaal to Johannesburg.
 
Check into your hotel and relax under warm blue South African skies.
Day 8
Today enjoy a city tour of old Johannesburg and Soweto.
 
We start with a visit to Constitution Hill - the site of the notorious Old Fort Prison, and  continue to the poignant Apartheid Museum, a living memorial to racial segregation.
 
We then drive to the sprawling township of Soweto for lunch (own account). Here we visit the original home of Nelson Mandela in Vilikazi Street and significant memorials to the freedom struggle, including the Hector Pietersen Museum, before returning to your hotel in the late afternoon.
Day 9
In the late morning you will be collected by your guide, who will show you some of South Africa’s greatest archaeological treasures as you visit the Maropeng Visitors Cente situated in the Cradle of Humankind near the Sterkontein Caves - a World Heritage site dating back billions of years. Dr Broom found one of the first ape-men in these caves, which have since yielded many incredible archaeological treasures.
 
In the afternoon we continue to Lesedi, an authentically reconstructed African village showcasing the culture, arts and crafts of South Africa’s five main tribes. Enjoy an included dinner at Lesedi, a visit to a sangoma (traditional healer) and traditional African dancing before returning to Johannesburg in the evening.
Day 10
Today travel 2-hours from Johannesburg through the rural North West Province to the resort of Sun City.
 
Check in, settle in and relax in your lush subtropical surrounding and enjoy the many facilities of your resort, which offers the best of Vegas-style gaming combined with wonderful entertainment facilities.
Days 11 To 12
Relax and enjoy the many facilities of Sun City independently.
 
Although originally established as a gaming resort, today Sun City offers a wide variety of outdoor and leisure activities - with its wonderfully warm weather having made it one of South Africa’s most popular holiday destinations.
  
The resort has many beautiful swimming pools, whilst the "Valley of the Waves" water park has gentle rides as well as thrilling steep slides and a tropical beach with real waves. The resort also offers a wide variety of restaurants.
 
If you would like to gamble the entertainment centre offers slot machines and bingo, whilst the casino offers black jack, roulette and more. Outside there are waterfalls, an aviary and abundant tropical bird life.
Day 13
Transfer 2-hours to Johannesburg Airport for your flight home.
