Discover South Africa in one luxurious week combining the two most important tourists areas of the country, Cape Town and the Sabi Sand Game Reserve in the Greater Kruger Park Region.  Stroll the beaches, mountains, and cosmopolitan streets of Cape Town followed by the thrill of a Big Five on the game-rich Lion Sands concession with the excitement of close contact animal encounters.

Day 1 - 3: Cape Town

You are met on arrival by our Meet and Greet team and taken to the exquisite Cape Cadogan 5 Star Boutique Hotel for your three night stay. This original Georgian-Victorian townhouse, set on a well-connected street in the suburb of Gardens, looks (and feels) more like a private residence. Its individually-decorated rooms and suites are laid out to suit every kind of traveller, while relaxed guest areas and our attentive hospitality encourage you to do as little or as much as you wish.

 

The Concierge team is on hand to arrange your outings and transfers, and the complimentary shuttle links you to many nearby attractions.  You can book local tours of sights such as Table Mountain, the Cape Peninsula or day trips out to the Cape Winelands with the Concierge team.  If you’d prefer more time in Cape Town, please let us know as we would be happy to add extra nights for your exploring enjoyment!

Day 4 - 7: Sabi Sands

Transfer today to the Cape Town airport for your flight to Skukuza (cost of flight not included). Upon arrival at Skukuza Airport, you will be met by our representative and transferred to Lion Sands River Lodge for four nights. Here you can expect a sophisticated interpretation of the traditional safari lodge, with light and bright contemporary décor. Limited walls allows a seamless flow between inside and out. The lodge recently reopened after an extensive renovation, introducing a new sense of brightness and space. Wooden walkways lead off to a spa, gym and pool, and back to the main lodge, where the deck’s connected water features give the impression of floating on the river. Whether you enjoy your time together socially or quietly, the running theme here is simple and natural luxury living.

 

The Reserve
The Lion Sands private reserve conserves 10 000ha (25 000ac) of habitat within the Sabi Sand Private area and is home to the highest and most diverse concentration of wildlife in the southern hemisphere. You can see all of Africa’s iconic species here, including all of the Big Five, along with a supporting cast of no less intriguing 137 mammal species and over 450 varieties of bird – while having minimal encounters with other people.

 

Morning Safari
Wake with the dawn chorus for the day’s first game drive. While the sun is just rising, this is peak game viewing time. Encounter nocturnal animals returning to rest and others headed out to hunt. The thrill of being let in on this world (and the coffee stop) will give you a buzz.

 

Evening Safari
As the day fades, a whole other world of animals emerges into the evening. It’ll take a little more to spot them, but with your guides’ keen eyes and your senses now attuned to the sounds, scents and movements of the bush, this experience captures the very essence of safari.

 

Bush Walk
Led by your expert guides, these are our walks on the wild side. For those who want to experience the bush, beyond observing it, there is no more real excursion. Feel the grass brush your hands, hear the crunch of scrub nearby, and spot game appear just meters off – exhilarating!

 

Optional Night at Chalkey’s Treehouse
Stay one night under at a ‘million star’ accommodation at Chalkey’s Treehouse. Romantics, adventurers, and solitude seekers alike can discover the magic of an evening out in Africa – in complete luxury. Delivered by safari vehicle to your hideout, you will spend the sunset hours enjoying a gourmet picnic and spotting the animals that wander past (at a safe distance), before turning in for the night beneath a blanket of stars. Open to the wild and the heavens, the Chalkley experience is raw Africa – but with picnic dining, a comfy bed, and hot shower involved.

Departure Day

After a last exhilarating morning game drive you will return to the lodge for breakfast and time to pack up.  Transfer to Skukuza airport for your flight to Johannesburg (cost of flight not included) to connect to your flight home.  Or consider extending your stay with add-ons, just let us know!
