Disabled Vacation
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 an Elephant Sanctuary which gives you the opportunity to experience a very special close encounter with these gentle giants.
 
Balance of day is free to explore the beautiful Panorama Route with your guide (pay any entrance fees locally) or relax at your lodge.
Day 3
This morning your guide will share with you the splendour of the Drakensberg Panorama Route as we drive through the green Blyde River Canyon - the third largest canyon in the world, where you can enjoy wonderful views from the Graskop Gorge Lift and 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.
Day 5
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.
Day 6
Time permitting enjoy some final early morning game viewing, before your 2.5-hour 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 we take a boat ride to see the Cape Fur seals at Seal Island.
 
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 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. 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
Today is free to explore more of the "Mother City" of Cape Town, with your guide providing your transport (pay any entrance fees locally).
 
You can explore the vibrant Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, visit the world famous Kirstenbosch Gardens, enjoy a city tour or take day tours to the winelands of Stellenbosch & Franschhoek. You can also visit the wonderful beach at Camps Bay.
 
Note: Local fuel supplement payable if you travel more than 200 km today.
Day 10
Enjoy a full day tour of the renowned Stellenbosch Winelands today, travelling through the scenic Franschhoek Valley where a handful of French Huguenot refugees started South Africa’s now famous wine industry. Visit the historic university town of Stellenbosch and several different wine estates of your choice – sampling as you go!
 
Enjoy lunch at a good restaurant or wine estate (own account), and visit the Cheetah Outreach Project in Somerset West on the way home.
