What to expect:
Kruger National Park
Kruger National Park is Africa’s most exciting African safari destination.
Steeped in legend and history, the iconic Kruger National Park in South Africa is waiting for you to explore its vast landscapes and spectacular African wildlife.
Kruger National Park is one of the largest game reserves in Africa. It covers an area of 19,633 square kilometres (7,580 sq miles) in the provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga in North-Eastern South Africa, and extends 360 kilometres (220 miles) from north to south and 65 kilometres (40 miles) from east to west.
The park is part of the Kruger to Canyons Biosphere an area designated by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as an International Man and Biosphere Reserve (the "Biosphere").
For this trip we suggest to take at least 2 to 3 days to make it worthwhile.
Pilanesberg National Park
The Pilanesberg Game Reserve is located in North West Province in South Africa and has an area of 572 km²(220 sq mi).
The Malaria-free Pilanesberg is in the Bojanala Region of the North West Province, adjacent to Sun City. Set in the crater of a long extinct volcano, the park ranks among the largest of the parks in South Africa and covers an area of some 55,000 hectare.
This well-stocked park has a dramatic landscape that supports a wide variety of plants, animals and birds. Pilanesberg accommodates virtually every mammal of southern Africa and is also home to the Big Five.
The beauty of Pilanesberg is reflected in a large central lake, the Mankwe Dam. Standing above the surrounding bushveld, the park unfolds colourful hues and panoramas - a delight for photographers and guests
Visitors can explore nearly 200 km on self-drives or guided game drives. There are a number of hides and scenic picnic sites available. Activities include game drives, either self-driven or guided, game walks and birding. Pilanesberg also operates hot-air balloon safaris.
For this trip we would recommend sleeping over for at least a night or more.
Sun International’s Sun City Resort is as popular today, as it was when it was first built in 1979.
Sun City offers more than one hundred unforgettable family activities, a vibrant, enticing casino and a variety of accommodation options to suit all tastes and budgets. From the 3-star family-focused Cabanas hotel to
the magnificent 5-star Palace of the Lost City, you’ll find the perfect place to enjoy your time at Sun City, whether it’s a romantic getaway with your partner, a wild weekend with friends or a memorable holiday with the whole family.
Also situated in the North West Province of South Africa, this is the ideal place to spend a weekend before or after visiting Pilanesberg National Park.
A key point on the Route of the African Sun, this luxurious hotel offers guests the best in fine dining, access to true, exclusive African safaris and a chance to partake in all of the activities and experiences the resort has to offer.
The Palace is an excellent place to spend some time, but take note that they require clients to spend at least a weekend, nothing less.

Nestled in the foothills of the Magaliesberg in South Africa's North West Province, the De Wildt Cheetah Research Centre is situated an hour from Johannesburg and about 3 hours from our camp.
De Wildt offers you the opportunity to learn more about fascinating creatures such as the wild dog, cheetah and various species of owls and vultures. During your visit an experienced guide will take you on a guided tour.
Everybody enjoys curio shopping!
After a good hunt, it is always fun to get a few curio items to serve as ‘memory’ of a great trip! Therefore we always take our clients on a curio shopping excursion before leaving South Africa.
Here you can buy many different types of ‘artwork’ handmade by the local community.
They offer wooden carvings, wooden bowls, beadworks like bangles and earrings, baskets weaved from reeds, paintings and much more.
Making of African Art
South Africa was one of the cradles of the human species. The oldest art objects in the world were discovered in a South African cave. Thanks to tourism, art is one of the best ways to make a living in South Africa - not just by selling, but also by teaching people how to make their own “South African art”.
For those who are interested, we offer the exclusive experience of ‘learning from the best’. An experienced artist will join us in camp to teach you the basic steps of doing beadwork and making your very own African jewellery and more.
Helicopter sight-seeing in Africa is definitely something to have on your to-do list.
Experience nature from a bird’s eye view and have a look at some of Africa’s most spectacular scenery like you’ve never seen before.
Whether you want to see the Vic Falls from the sky, Blyde River Canyon or just your hunting concession and the surrounding areas, it promises to be an unforgettable experience and guarantees some fantastic photographic opportunities.
Elephant-back Rides & Interaction
Offering way more than the usual “Touch and Feed” Elephant experience, we offer true adventures with Elephants - anything from hands-on Elephant Interactions, Elephant-back Rides, swims on Elephant-back and more.
Located on a beautiful wildlife reserve, they offer you the thrill of hands-on interactions with these magnificent pachyderms and invite you into the elephant’s world where you can learn more about elephant in this unique manner whilst witnessing the elephant’s intelligence, compassionate nature and sheer delight in interacting with their human companions.

We offer a collection of horse riding safaris which offer not only close encounters with game, but also a diverse range of other rewarding experiences like western games, cattle mustering and swimming with your horse.
Safaris in Africa are an intimate experience: there is simply no better way of taking in the African bush, than by horseback. Becoming part of a herd of zebra as they canter across the plains, or quietly approaching a browsing giraffe or basking hippo is a truly amazing feeling. Africa is a very special place, but Africa on horseback is truly magical.
This tour takes you on an exciting, two and a half hour adventure as you slide from one platform to the next, through the most beautiful mountains set amongst magnifisent natural surroundings. The tour involves a zig zag ride.

Zipline tours promises an unforgettable and adrenalin packed journey that offers the most beautiful nature scenes imaginable.
Professional, experienced guides will assure safety as well as interesting facts and an excellent knowledge regarding the area.
Blyde River Canyon
The Blyde River Canyon is a significant natural feature of South Africa, located in Mpumalanga, and forming the northern part of the Drakensberg escarpment.
It is 25 kilometres (16 miles) in length and is, on average, around 750 metres (2,461 ft) deep. The Blyderivierpoort Dam, when full, is at an altitude of 665 metres (2,182 ft). The highest point of the canyon, Mariepskop, is 1,944 metres (6,378 ft) above sea level, whilst its lowest point where the river leaves the canyon is slightly less than 561 metres (1,841 ft) above sea level. This means that by some measure the Canyon is 1,383 metres (4,537 ft) deep.
While it is difficult to compare canyons world-wide, Blyde River Canyon is one of the largest canyons on Earth, and it may be the largest 'green canyon' due to its lush subtropical foliage. It has some of the deepest precipitous cliffs of any canyon on the planet. It is the second largest canyon in Africa, after the Fish River Canyon, and is known as one of the great wonders of nature on the continent.

Cape Town & Surroundings
Table Mountain is a flat-topped mountain forming a prominent landmark overlooking the city of Cape Town in South Africa. It is a significant tourist attraction, with many visitors using the cableway or hiking to the top. The mountain forms part of the Table Mountain National Park. The view from the top of Table Mountain has been described as one of the most epic views in Africa.
Situated at the foot of Table Mountain, within a stone's throw from the Cape Town Stadium, and in the heart of Cape Town's working harbour, the V&A Waterfront offers the visitor an abundance of unforgettable experiences. Indoor shopping and entertainment venues seamlessly merge with ocean vistas and mountain views, and the fresh sea breeze and warm African sun add zest to a cosmopolitan, vibrant atmosphere.
Cape Point is situated within the Table Mountain National Park, within a section of the Park referred to as Cape of Good Hope. It is close to where the cold Atlantic & the warm Indian Oceans meet, and it is what we see on maps as ‘the tip of Africa’.
Cape Town and the Cape region are famous for award winning wines and scenic vineyards which have so much character and charm about them. Many regions have perfected the art of winemaking so be sure to put together a schedule to visit the wine farms.
Victoria Falls, or Mosi-oa-Tunya (the Smoke that Thunders), is a waterfall in southern Africa on the Zambezi River at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe.
While it is neither the highest nor the widest waterfall in the world, it is classified as the largest, based on its width of 1,708 metres (5,604 ft) and height of 108 metres (354 ft), resulting in the world's largest sheet of falling water.
Victoria Falls is roughly twice the height of North America's Niagara Falls and well over twice the width of its Horseshoe Falls.
The Okavango Delta
The Okavango Delta (or Okavango Grassland) in Botswana is a very large inland delta.
All the water reaching the Delta is ultimately evaporated and transpired, and does not flow into any sea or ocean.
Each year approximately 11 cubic kilometres of water spreads over the 6,000-15,000 km² area. Some flood-waters drain into Lake Ngami. The Moremi Game Reserve, a National Park, is on the eastern side of the Delta. This statistical significance helped the Okavango Delta secure a position as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa, which were officially declared on February 11, 2013 in Arusha, Tanzania. On the 22nd June, 2014, the Okavango Delta became the 1000th site to be officially inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
