Cape Town and Surroundings

Cape Town, The Mother City justifies at least a visit of 4 days as it has so much to offer. There is much to do and to see… a day doing a tour around the Cape Peninsula visiting the highlights of Cape Point, Hout Bay and seal island, the quaint naval village of Simonstown and Boulders Penguin Colony, world famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and the oldest wine estate, Groot Constantia… a day spent exploring the interesting shops and modern shopping malls… a day spent visiting the winelands home to hundreds of excellent wine estates… a day visiting Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for much of his life… a day out along the coast to see the Southern Right Whales during the season of June to November… a day out to see the Spring Flowers during the season of August and September… and much, much more. Why not stay in the Winelands area for a few nights - also a wonderful area a short drive from central Cape Town yet away from the hustle and bustle. You can either hire a car and do it yourself or take a selection of day tours.
Accommodation starts from around US$ 35.00 per person per night bed and breakfast. Can be visited all year (best time is February to April and September to November although winter is mild, is quiet from a visitor's point, which makes for easy and relaxed surroundings.

Garden Route

South Africa's lakes district… a beautiful stretch of our country that lies along the East Coast between Mossel Bay and just beyond Plettenberg Bay. One should spend at least 3 days in this area to be able to see all the beauty of long beaches, hidden lagoons, the forests, interesting villages and towns and to visit a host of fine eateries. Knysna is the heart of the Garden Route and is central to - Oudtshoorn the ostrich capital… Plettenberg Bay the home of South Africa's rich and famous… a number of beautiful lakes… beaches for swimming, sun tanning and surfing… Knysna itself, a picturesque village with its host of interesting restaurants and home to the Knysna oyster… Mossel Bay where the historical Diaz Museum and Post Office Tree is located.
The Garden Route can either be visited as a self drive (about a 5-hour drive from Cape Town), as a hosted fly-in package or as escorted tour. Accommodation starts from around US$ 30.00 per person per night bed and breakfast.

The Great African Safari

Coming to Southern Africa is not complete without doing an African Safari. Our main safari area is centered around the Kruger National Park located on the North Eastern border of South Africa. The Kruger National Park is a large Park with a host of rest camps spread throughout the Park where one can overnight on either a self-catering basis or take one's meals in the rest camp restaurants. Game viewing is done by self driving around on the well marked roads networking the Park, or by escorted tours conducted by various tour operators and by the Park's rangers - vehicles are closed i.e.: VW microbuses or coach tours. The real safari is done by visiting a Private Game Reserve. These border the Kruger National Park and offer a range of 5-star accommodation be in tents or stunning individual chalets. Typically a visit to a Private Game Reserve includes your luxurious accommodation, a morning and late afternoon game drive going into the evening using a spotlight to look for the nocturnal wildlife - these drives are in open 4-wheel drive vehicles accompanied by professional rangers / naturalists and their trackers. Most offer bush walks under guidance of an armed ranger, some offer health treatments and all include three meals per day; all coffees and teas plus some include sundowner drinks while on the evening game drive.

Going on safari must be done over a minimum of 3 days either visiting the Kruger National Park or one of the Private Game Reserves. If one can, 4 days certainly offers the ideal length of visit especially when one has traveled so far.
A 2-night Kruger National Park safari starts from US$ 360.00 per person sharing as an escorted tour ex Johannesburg including breakfast and dinner plus drives around the Park.
A 2-night fly-in ex Johannesburg to a Private Game Reserve starts from US$ 680.00 per person sharing including return flights from Johannesburg, luxury accommodation, all meals plus two game viewing activities each day (and bush walks on request).
A 4-day self drive adventure to the Kruger National Park starts from US$ 300.00 per person sharing a compact rental car driving from Johannesburg to the Park return and 3 nights chalet accommodation in the Park.

Either before or after one's safari one can also spend a few extra days exploring the surrounding area of Pilgrim's Rest, the whole village is a national monument dedicated to the old gold mining days. See the natural beauty of Bourkes Luck Potholes, God's Window, Mac Mac Falls and explore interesting craft shops located in all the small villages scattered through the area. If time permits 3 days in the area makes for an interesting visit.

Victoria Falls Getaway

Should time allow a visit to one of the natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls is a must. The small town of Victoria Falls serves this magnificent sight, of the smoke that thunders. The best way to visit the Victoria Falls is to take a fly-in package from Johannesburg - 2 nights is just fine for a visit. Typically one flies out of Johannesburg on a scheduled flight arriving in Victoria Falls in the early afternoon spending 2 nights allowing for a full day to see the Falls, visit one of Africa's most interesting craft markets, do a sunset cruise along the Zambezi River, see the Africa Dance Spectacular show and to enjoy high tea at the delightful Victoria Falls Hotel.
A 2-night fly-in package ex Johannesburg starts from US$ 415.00 per person sharing.

Wonderous Okavango

"To many the name Botswana is synonymous with vast herds of game and whilst there is truth in this, it is not, to those who know and understand the country, the true reason for its compelling attraction and lasting effect on people. What then, does draw visitors in ever-increasing numbers to this evocative land? The answer can be summed up in one word - wilderness. Wilderness is found in the immensity of flawless skies that arch from horizon to horizon or in the deafening silence in the still of an ink-black night when, as the bushmen themselves proclaim, it is possible to hear the stars in song. And if this is not enough to lure the Africa enthusiast to the seductive embrace of the Kalahari then the addition of names such as Okavango, Savute, Moremi and Chobe completes the process."
Mike Main, author

There are a number of itineraries on offer visiting this stunning wilderness - the only way to do it in limited time is by fly-in safaris and better yet to hinge this visit to one's Victoria Falls visit. 3-Days is the minimum requirement although we would suggest at least a 4-night visit, 2 nights each at two different camps within Botswana. Prices start from US$ 1000.00 per person sharing for a 2-night fly-in safari to US$ 2250.00 per person for a 4-night fly-in safari. There are options for longer safaris.
