(10 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis) Sabi Sand Game Reserve, Kalahari Desert, Cape Town
This private tour features luxury safaris in two of South Africa’s most stunning landscapes and exciting wildlife destinations, plus time in the beautiful city of Cape Town. Experience the Big Five in the Sabi Sand, meet meerkats and explore the Kalahari Desert at Tswalu, and conclude with comprehensive cultural touring and excursions in Cape Town.
Arrive in Johannesburg, where you will be met and assisted to the flight to Singita Lodge in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, a private reserve that borders Kruger National Park. This area is renowned for its diverse wildlife—including the Big Five—and is particularly known for leopard sightings. Stay at the ultra-luxurious Singita Boulders and enjoy morning and afternoon game drives and guided bush walks during your stay. If desired, a visit to a local community can be arranged. There will also be time to indulge in spa treatments and enjoy elaborate gourmet meals paired with South Africa’s best wines.
Next, fly to South Africa’s Kalahari Desert for an unforgettable desert safari experience. Accommodation is at Tswalu, a luxury lodge in South Africa’s largest privately-owned game reserve. Set out with expert rangers on your own private game drives to view desert wildlife, including desert Black Rhino and other rare species such as black wildebeest and mountain zebra. Spend quality time with a habituated family of meerkats. Opt for a horseback safari or a bush walk, or have us arrange a hot air balloon ride over the veld.
Conclude your tour with three nights in Cape Town and stay at one of our favorite luxury properties. Enjoy comprehensive private touring with one of Cape Town’s most knowledgeable guides. Learn about the city’s fascinating history and architecture; take a cable car to the top of the iconic Table Mountain; experience local markets, boutiques, museums, and noted African art galleries; and enjoy Cape Town’s incredible food and wine scene, including reservations at top restaurants. Depending on your interests, enjoy other highlights, such as Robben Island, Bo Kaap (the Cape Malay Quarter), and the Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden.
One day, take a private excursion along the scenic coastal road to the Cape Peninsula and visit the Cape of Good Hope, Boulders Beach and quaint seaside towns, or opt to spend a day in the Winelands region with personalized wine tastings at South Africa’s best vineyards and a visit the charming towns of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Private yacht cruises, scenic helicopter flights, adventure activities, and day trips to Hermanus can also be arranged, upon request.
