Arrive at the lovely city of Cape Town off your International flight.

Met by your Guide and transfer to the luxury 5 star Cape Grace Hotel , where you will be spending the following 4 Nights

This award winning hotel is situated in the fabulous Victoria and Alfred waterfront. You have to stay here at least once in your lifetime.

Situated on a private quay between Cape Town’s bustling V&A Waterfront and the tranquil yacht marina, there is no better position from where to soak in the natural beauty of our Mother City and the very essence of Cape Town living at its best.

The elegant and warm atmosphere, evident in every fine detail, begins at the welcoming reception lounge and extends to our spacious harbour and mountain-facing rooms.

Overnight:  The Cape Grace Hotel  – Bed  & Breakfast 

Day  2:   Private Full Day Cape Point Tour

We  travel along the trendy Clifton and Camps Bay coast line with white sandy beaches and many restaurants.

We then proceed over the world famous Chapmans Peak and on to the Cape Of Good Hope Nature Reserve and  witness the cold Atlantic meeting the warm Indian Ocean

We visit Cape Point and spend some time exploring the area.

Then onto the famous Black Marlin  or similar restaurant for lunch. Once a whaling station, this excellent Seafood restaurant ensures the perfect setting for an idyllic lunch  experience.

The garden is a popular choice in the summer months.

During “whale season” (early July to December), our guests often enjoy their meal whilst watching whales sidling along the coastline. The garden is also home to our 100-year-old Camellia Japonica tree that blooms four different colours (red, pink, white & pink & white)

After a excellent seafood meal , we continue to visit the Penguin colony on Boulders Beach,

We travel through quaint suburbs on the way and then visit the lovely Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens

With an ancient terroire , and a Mediterranean climate , excellent wines are made.

We visit the 17th century Dutch town of Stellenbosch with its lovely Cape Dutch style architecture.

We then continue towards Franschoek for a wine tasting at the excellent Haute Cabriere/similar

Nestled in stone with maturing Pinot Noir below, the Haute Cabrière tasting room is the perfect platform to indulge in our wines from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. In summer, take in the unique view of the Franschhoek Valley, whilst in winter enjoy tastings next to our fireplace. The tasting room offers guests a historic view into the past with the daily cellar tour. This unique underground experience shares the Haute Cabrière wine making philosophy and explores the wines, while getting insight into the wine making process.

Lunch is at the excellent Delaire Graaf restaurant / similar .Overlooking a sea of vineyards and olive groves planted on the Simonsberg, our views from the terrace span all the way into the Banhoek Valley.

We then visit Muratie wine estate/ similar for a wine tasting

Muratie’s rich history is captured in every nook and cranny. Wherever you are on the estate you cannot help being moved by a sense of the many generations that have Lived and worked here. The buildings, the artifacts and even the shrubs and trees exude an aura of the colourful past reaching towards an even more fruitful future.

Then once you have experienced this absorbing atmosphere, you will literally taste it in the Tasting Room where our wines can be savoured every day of the week.

Breakfast and transfer to the private Execujet Lounge at Cape Town airport.

We board the luxurious Pilatus PC 12 and take off. A 2 hour flight takes us to the magnificent Kalahari

We land on the Private airstrip and are met by our Rangers.

Each booking is allocated a Private Safari vehicle with Ranger and Tracker.

We freshen up in the Thatch Boma and are offered warm towels and local delicacies.

We then board our Landrover and make our way to the Motse Lodge , a 50 minute drive.

Tswalu is a vast, magical land of infinite possibility, with sweeping vistas and a liberating sense of space. The green Kalahari is nature at its most diverse and surprising, and to spend time here is to be touched by exuberant, soulful beauty. Considered important for thousands of years, we’re now striving to conserve this breath-taking landscape for future generations.

Overnight:  Tswalu Motse Lodge – Fully inclusive of all meals  & activities 

Day 6 – 8 :  Tswalu Kahalari Reserve

An early morning visit to Tswalu’s habituated meerkats to see them in their natural habitat is an unforgettable encounter.

Guests have the opportunity to get within a few metres of one of three habituated family groups to watch them pop in and out of their burrows, stand sentry, groom and play with each other, soak up the sunshine, and forage in the sand for tasty morsels. The families are referred to as the Mokala, Gosa and Rockstar groups.

Each drive or activity, such as a starlit dune dinner or Naledi sleep-out experience, becomes part of your exclusive, personalised Tswalu safari. Just like the sands of the Kalahari, we understand that your priorities may shift during your time at Tswalu. That’s why we’ll never try and shoehorn your experience into a fixed schedule.

Unlike most private reserves in South Africa, there are no other lodges on the property and the land is not shared with guests from other concessions or properties. This means that there are no areas of the reserve that are off-limits to guests. Heading off in a new direction every day, it literally feels as if you have the entire southern Kalahari to yourself.

Scenic helicopter flights, nature walks, rock art excursions, time in the field with one of the scientists from Dedeben Research Centre, or a session in the photographic studio, editing and printing your best wildlife images, are a few of the other specialised activities on offer. Tswalu is malaria free, making it an ideal safari destination for families. Children are actively encouraged to participate fully in the safari experience

No two Tswalu experiences are the same.

That’s because the way you see and touch this magical place will be shaped by your particular interests and will happen at your own pace. Tswalu is a generous landscape and as the sun rises above the Korannaberg mountains each morning, new opportunities to learn, play and explore come to life.

A private vehicle allows for unlimited time at sightings, which may include some of the elusive species that find sanctuary here, such as aardvark, pangolin, bat-eared fox, brown hyena, and aardwolf. Other iconic Kalahari species include the black-maned Kalahari lion, the desert black rhino, wild dog, oryx and cheetah. At any time of the year, there are special sightings and transformations to the landscape influenced by seasonal changes and the absence or abundance of water.

Overnight:  Tswalu Motse Lodge – Fully inclusive of all meals  & activities 

Day 9:  Kruger National Park Safari

Last morning Game Drive and breakfast is served !

We check out and get ready for our next adventure .

We say out goodbyes to our Ranger and staff and board the luxurious Pilatus Aircraft for our direct flight to Johannesburg.

We are met at Johannesburg and assisted to the Fedair flight to the Legendary Kruger National Park.

After a short one hour flight we land at the Leopard Hills runway .

Occasionally there are lions on the strip in which case  the aircraft will circle until they are chased off

We arrive in time for the Afternoon/Evening Game Drive.

Overnight: Leopard Hills Private Game Reserve  – Fully inclusive of all meals and game activities

Day 10 & 11:   Kruger National Park Safari

An Exclusive Five-Star Luxury Experience in the World Renowned Sabi Sand Game Reserve

Award-winning Leopard Hills is located in the western sector of the renowned Sabi Sand Game Reserve, bordering the world famous Kruger National Park. This Sabi Sand lodge is perfectly set on a rocky outcrop, offering magnificent views over the bush and an active waterhole on the plains below.

The Reserve comprises over 10,000 hectares of incredibly diverse ecosystems making Leopard Hills the ideal destination to view plentiful game in its natural habitat. Here the ‘Big 5’ (elephant, lion, rhino, buffalo and leopard) abound and viewing them at close proximity is our specialty.

Within the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, the ‘Big 5’, (elephant, lion, rhino, buffalo and leopard), abound and viewing them at close proximity is our speciality. Traversing over 10,000 hectares of incredibly diverse ecosystems makes Leopard Hills the ideal destination to view plentiful game in its natural habitat.

Each day brings something different, as you explore the bush in an open game viewing vehicle. Whether it is a leopard on the hunt, lions roaring at twilight, hippo wallowing in the river, or a crocodile basking on a sandy bank; each viewing will enthrall.

Your knowledgeable and professional ranger conducts early morning and late afternoon/evening game drives,

in search of Africa’s big game. The latest state-of-the-art open game drive vehicles, specifically designed for Leopard Hills, have individual bucket seats and centre consoles, ensuring your optimum safety and comfort.

Leopard Hills prides itself with the best rangers in the business, and they offer a safari experience like no other, from sightings of big game in their natural surroundings, to the smaller flora and fauna, which make this piece of paradise a place we are privileged to call home.

Overnight: Leopard Hills Private Game Reserve  – Fully inclusive of all meals and game activities

Day 12:  Walking Safari

Exploring the African wilderness on foot provides us with a real sense of place and we become a part of the environment, absorbing every detail, leaving nothing but our tracks behind.

Your senses will become tuned in to the many facets of nature that are often overlooked from a vehicle as you see, smell, hear, touch and even taste the true soul of Africa.

Coming across an attractively marked leopard tortoise, watching a fascinating rhino beetle or a stunningly plumed lilac breasted roller, are just a few of the amazing encounters awaiting you!

Trails are flexible depending on each guest’s requirements. Shorter walks are conducted after the morning game drive and are usually for 1 or 2 hours. Longer walking trails can be arranged anytime and can even be in place of morning game drives.

Our walking safaris are lead by an experienced fully qualified Trails Guide who will tailor your experience based on your specific interests. After an introductory briefing on the all important “do’s and don’ts” of bush walking safaris, the trail will be structured around the fitness levels of the group. In keeping with safety regulations on guided walks, no children under 16 are permitted.

Overnight: Leopard Hills Private Game Reserve  – Fully inclusive of all meals and game activities

Day 13:   Your adventure ends

Last morning Game drive followed by breakfast

We check out and after a memorable time we are taken to the airstrip by our ranger.

We board the aircraft and fly to Joannesburg for our return flight home.

Day 8 – 9 :  Exciting Safari

Morning safaris

An early morning call from the Ranger will wake you before first light, while the kitchen brews hot coffee or tea, and prepares cool fruit juices with a muffin, rusk or other freshly made delicacy. So begins the morning safari.

The bush is already alive, the air filled with birdsong as the rising sunlight dances off beads of dew on spiders’ webs. Nobody, not even the tracker who can read the bushveld like a book, knows what’s in store. He will watch the road for spoor, leaning forward intently to find any print left by a predator during its hunt in the dark. There may be hushed discussions in Shangaan between Ranger and Tracker, and brief radio interactions from one vehicle to another. Sharing information ensures that the occupants of each Land Rover have the best chance of a wide range of sightings during their drives – and also ensures control and responsible behaviour as the vehicles move in close to the animals.

Morning guided bush walk

Renowned for luxury experiences, Sabi Sabi isn’t all about phenomenal game drives and exceptional dining. Opportunities for education and adventure are definitely on the cards for those interested and energetic. On the morning safari walk you can be part of a small group that sets out on foot after breakfast. The walk is an opportunity to feel the pulse of Africa through the soles of your feet and experience the bushveld at close quarters.

Sabi Sabi boasts approximately 350 different species of birds, a paradise for birdwatchers. Raptors are plentiful, including 11 species of owl, the seldom seen cuckoo hawk and rare bat hawk. There is an endless diversity of trees, shrubs and flowering plants, and whatever the time of year, no two walks are ever the same.

Evening safaris

Evening falls and you prepare for the night safari. As the fierce heat of the day cools, the inhabitants of the bush become restless, and the animals move out of the shade of the trees. The call of the crested francolin reverberates through the bushveld and birds increase the volume of their song. You will be aware of colours softening to the beautiful, gentle hues that vary with each season. New scents fill the air and as the sun dips behind the horizon your Ranger will choose a spot where you can stretch your legs and enjoy sundowners alongside the vehicle. Watch in awe as the sky turns to the sensational vibrant reds, golds and oranges typical of an African sunset. There is a lull as the animals sense the transition into a time of increased danger. It is during evening safaris that the nocturnal hunters start stirring, and their prey needs to be alert for survival through the night.

During your safari you may be lucky enough to watch lions prepare for their evening hunt. Their long bodies stretch to ease muscles cramped from lying in the shade during the day; sinews are lengthened and claws sharpened against a tree; the vegetation is marked with scent, and the wind checked for smells; only then do they set off in a slow, loose-jointed, arrogant amble. There are numerous nocturnal hunters and on your evening safari, with the help of a spotlight, a leopard’s eyes may reflect back from a nearby tree. Or you may be lucky enough to spot another smaller predator, a genet, African civet or African wild cat. One can come across scenes at night that become etched in memory: elephants moving heavily but silently in the moonlight; the incredible flying leaps of bushbabies from treetop to treetop, and the red shine from a lion’s eyes as it looks up from its kill.

Overnight:  Silvan Safari Lodge ( 5 star )  or  Elephant Plains Game Lodge  ( 4 star ) – Fully inclusive of all meals, twice daily game activities, daily bush walk [ Local branded alcoholic drinks included at Silvan ]
