Day 1
You will be met at Mpumalanga Airport and transferred to your lodge situated near the entrance to the world famous Kruger National Park.
 
Check in and relax in the atmosphere that only the African bushveld can provide.
 
In the afternoon you will be collected for a visit to a local Elephant Sanctuary to experience a very special close-up encounter, where for 1-hour you can interact with and feed one of these gentle giants.
 
Note: There are no accessible toilets at the Elephant Sanctuary.
Days 2 To 3
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, travelling in his closed air-conditioned vehicle. We recommend setting off early each morning as the camp gates open (05h00 to 06h00 depending on the season), to take advantage of the best game viewing conditions of the day.
   
Explore the famous Kruger National Park, which offer magnificent game viewing opportunities and the highest concentration of lion in the whole of Africa. Hope to see several of the Big Five - lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino - as well as many other species, before stopping at a picnic spot or rest camp for lunch (own account) and more game viewing in the afternoon.
 
All game drives will be taken with your guide in his air-conditioned vehicle, although if you have upper body strength and can transfer into the front seat of a game viewing vehicle, for a supplement you can book shared open top game drives (these must be pre-booked).
 
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.
 
Return to your lodge in the late afternoon and 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. Children < 6 are not allowed on open top game drives.
Day 4
Today enjoy a drive 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.
 
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.
 
Note: Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre is closed on Sundays.
Day 5
Continue experiencing the amazing wildlife of the Kruger National Park as we take game drives in our closed vehicle through another region of this vast sanctuary, which boasts many diverse habitats - each with its own flora & fauna.
 
We explore many side roads, dams and waterholes to discover animals not yet seen, as well as viewing many birds, reptiles and insects. At the end of each day enjoy another spectacular African sunset.
Day 6
Transfer 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 your guide will collect you for a full day tour of Cape Town.
 
We start with a short tour to see the key historical and architectural sites of the "Mother City". Weather permitting, we will then ascend Table Mountain by cable car to enjoy one of the world’s most famous views (alternatively we drive up Signal Hill, with its wonderful view point).
 
We continue to the fishing village of Hout Bay, where there is the option to take a boat ride to see the Cape Fur seals at Seal Island (pay locally).
 
Afterwards we visit Kirstenbosch Gardens, nestled on the eastern slopes of Table Mountain and regarded as one the most beautiful botanic gardens in the world. Bequeathed to the nation by Cecil John Rhodes, the garden was established 1913. There is an avenue of camphor trees, a beautiful protea and fynbos garden, useful plants garden, sculpture garden and a dell garden as well as a world class collection of indigenous South African flora. Wonderful summer sunset concerts are held in the gardens on Sunday evenings from December to March.
 
Note: For the optional trip to Seal Island you will be lifted in your manual wheelchair into the boat, so this will not be possible for very heavy guests, nor for power chairs. If you prone to travel sickness, you may want to take preventative tablets in advance. There is no accessible toilet on the boat.
Day 8
Today your guide will collect you for a full day tour to the beautiful Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve.
  
Enjoy wonderful ocean views as we drive around the Cape Peninsula to naval Simonstown, where we visit the resident penguin colony at Boulders Beach.
 
We continue to Cape Point where we hope to see baboons, ostrich and perhaps even dolphins or whales in season (July to November). We take an accessible funicular ride up to the Old Lighthouse, before returning via spectacular Chapman’s Peak Drive to Cape Town.
Day 9
Enjoy a full day tour through 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 the historic university town of Stellenbosch and several different wine estates – sampling as we go.
 
After lunch at a good restaurant or wine estate (own account), we visit the Cheetah Outreach Project in Somerset West on the way home.
Day 10
Today your guide will drive you 2-hours from the Cape Peninsula along the scenic coastal route through Gordon’s Bay and along the False Bay coast to the small seaside town of Hermanus.
 
Along the way we visit Harold Porter Botanical Gardens, renowned for its fynbos flowers.
 
We continue to Hermanus and explore this small town on foot. It has an interesting open-air craft market in season and a coastal path with indigenous fynbos and bird life. There is a small beach at the foot of the cliffs, with steep access. From July to November, southern right and humpback whales come here to breed and it is considered the best location for land-based Whale Watching in the world. Once severely endangered, these magnificent creatures of the deep are now breeding successfully in the area due to a major international conservation effort.
 
On the way back to Cape Town, enjoy some wine tasting at a local Wine Farm.
Day 11
Transfer to Cape Town Airport for your flight home.
