Visit the Cape and Kruger on this seriously good trip to Cape Town, the Timbavati, and the Sabi Sands! Sightings of the Big Five are highly likely on this itinerary, as we use two of South Africa’s best safari camps.

The adventure begins at the Mother City’s Cape Cadogan Boutique Hotel. This is a super-stylish property, close to the vibrant Kloof Street yet with a quiet courtyard where you can really relax and unwind. Next up is Kings Camp in the Timbavati, a friendly safari camp with amazing views over the plains. And the final part of your trip will be spent at the Sabi Sands’ MalaMala Main Camp, a luxury lodge on the banks of the seasonal Sand river.

During your time at Cape Cadogan, you’ll be well placed to explore Cape Town’s wide range of attractions, as well as to sample some of the city’s first-class eateries and bars in the company of friendly locals. Once you’ve arrived at Kings Camp, your safari starts in earnest, with expertly guided game drives and game walks. The camp also offers photographic safaris and a rhino chipping experience! More great game viewing is possible from MalaMala, via vehicle and walking safaris. Photo safaris are available too.

You’ll stay in a luxury room, which features a comfy sleeping space, separate seating area with cosy fireplace, and well-appointed en-suite facilities. Cape Cadogan is a brilliant base for visiting not only Kloof Street but also Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, the V&A Waterfront, and more!
