This private tour is perfect for those who prefer not to take malaria medication while traveling. It includes comprehensive private touring of Cape Town along with thrilling wildlife safaris at two of South Africa’s best luxury lodges—both located in malaria-free zones.

Arrive in Johannesburg where you will be assisted to the light aircraft flight to the Madikwe Game Reserve, a malaria-free South African game reserve near the border of Botswana. This area offers a wide range of eco-zones and therefore a great variety of species, including the Big Five and cheetah. Stay at one of South Africa’s top safari lodges and enjoy game drives with an expert ranger. Spend free time at the spa, at the pool, on a bush walk, or enjoying a cooking lesson in the kitchen.

Spend the next three days in South Africa’s Kalahari Desert (malaria-free zone) 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 in beautiful 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.

Speak with one of our Africa specialists to begin planning your private tour. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange private air charters to lodges throughout South Africa.
