If you have only one week to spend on safari in South Africa, choose our Cape to Kruger. This journey takes you from the cosmopolitan Cape Town to the wild Kruger National Park to discover South Africa's most spectacular natural beauty, rich cultural heritage and exceptional safari game viewing. Based from one of the most beautiful cities in the world, you have several relaxed days to explore the stunning mountain scenery, dramatic coastline, and Cape wine region under the guidance of our local expert Doug Thompson. Visit Robben Island, the political prison of Nelson Mandela and embark on a community-based township tour before heading northeast to South Africa's world-renowned Kruger Park area for safari game drives and bush walks with expert game rangers and trackers. Accommodations on this itinerary are comfortable, locally-run lodges and guesthouses – perfectly situated to watch sunsets over the awe-inspiring South African landscapes.
Though we believe this itinerary is a wonderful week in South Africa, it can also be the basis for a myriad of custom South Africa safaris. If you are interested in biking in the Cape Winelands, kayaking to Boulders Beach, adding a few nights at Victoria Falls or traveling with younger adventurers we can customize this itinerary to make it perfect for you.
