8 Day Kruger and Cape Town Tour

An adventure not to be missed! Come and experience our tailored South African safari on this remarkable 8-day Kruger and Cape Town Tour. A fantastic choice for travellers wanting to escape on a short break, whether travelling as a group of friends, with your loved ones or to those seeking new adventures and exploring some of the biggest wonders of South Africa.

On our Kruger and Cape Town Tour, spend your first night in the bustling city of Johannesburg, known locally as 'Egoli', the city of gold. Johannesburg offers a wide range of tours and excursions from arts to culture to a rich history. Feeling lucky? Why not try your luck on the slots at some of the biggest casino attractions in Johannesburg such as Gold Reef City and Emperors Palace?

Starting the following morning bright and early you will depart for the 3-day Kruger tour and get to experience close-up encounters with the "Big 5" on a Kruger National Park Safari. Game drives in open vehicles ensure you get the best view of your safari. Returning to Johannesburg there will be plenty of time to stop and explore some sights along the way. Keep that camera close by as we get to take in some amazing views from a viewpoint over the Blyde River Canyon where one can witness the Three Rondavels.

The final destination on the Kruger and Cape Town Tour in Cape Town, the Mother City, is in the shadow of the majestic Table Mountain. In Cape Town, the possibilities are endless, from wine route tours to whale watching & shark cage diving to even sky diving.
