Savvy travellers know that a genuine African wildlife safari experience need not be all sweat and struggle. We built this trip for adventurers who want to get right out into the thick of things with a minimum of fuss and a maximum of comfort. Start in stunning Cape Town, a city you may never want to leave! Then tour South Africa’s famed Kruger National Park and Timbavati Private Game Reserve by day and dream of tomorrow’s encounters with the Big Five from the coziest accommodations. With trusty CEOs at the ready, you’re free to focus on the important stuff, like squeezing that rhino into your viewfinder.
