No South Africa vacation is complete without a Big 5 safari, regardless of whether you've been on safari before or this is your first time. The wildlife in this amazing nation is incredibly diverse, and there are parks and reserves for every taste and budget. One of the most magical travel experiences is visiting a safari where you can see wild animals in their natural environment. Even though you might have seen these animals at the zoo, seeing them in their natural habitat is a totally different experience. You can observe giraffes ambling through the savannah, big cats lazing in the sun, and cheater cubs rolling around while they play while on your South African safari. In the maleficent rivers, crocodiles and hippos swim, and predators gnaw on the leftovers from last night's dinner.

Greetings from Johannesburg! Within 30 minutes, your driver guide will pick you up at OR Tambo International Airport (JNB) and drive you the 25 kilometers to the hotel. The capital of South Africa and its largest city is Johannesburg. During your free time, you can explore "the city of gold" and discover its distinct culture and historical sites.
Your driver will pick you up at the hotel in the morning and take you to the airport where you will take a 1-hour flight to Kruger National Park. Upon arrival, a knowledgeable driver-guide will welcome you and direct you to begin one of our top South Africa tours with Panorama Route. It is a beautiful road that connects a number of historical and scenic locations, including God's Window, Bourke's Luck Potholes, the Blyde River Canyon, and the renowned Three Ronda Wels.
Today will be our first night drive experience. You will be joined by an experienced ranger and a local tracker for a nighttime safari in an open vehicle. They are very knowledgeable and will undoubtedly assist you in learning more about untamed life, flora, and forests. Finding the big 5—the lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhinoceros—is crucial. You may also get to see other creatures. Last but not least, head back to the lodge to savor the delectable dinner.
After a cup of coffee or tea in the morning, we will begin our safari tour because the animals frequently start their activities very early. The ranger and local tracker work together closely, and their tracking abilities are really impressive. Additionally, the proximity of the car to the animals will provide numerous photo opportunities. After a roughly three-hour safari, we'll return to the lodge for a hearty breakfast. Following that, you can take a break at the pool or go on a bush walk with the ranger. There is nothing better for a true lover of wild animals and plants than the adventure of getting up close and personal with nature by going on a bush walk. The expert will lead you through the pristine African jungle as you search for the plants and animals that interest you. The afternoon game drive tour is comparable to the one from yesterday.
Following a sunrise game drive, you will be driven to the airport for your 3-hour flight to Cape Town. When you arrive, your private driver will take you to the hotel to check in. South Africa's capital, Cape Town, is home to the endlessly beautiful Atlantic Ocean scenery. You can explore the various fascinating cultures, mouthwatering cuisine, fine wines, and breathtaking natural settings.
Today, we will visit interesting sites like the magnificent Castle of Good Hope and Cape Town City Hall to gain a better understanding of Cape Town. After that, we'll make a stop at St. George's Cathedral before traveling through the verdant Company Gardens to the cultural district Bo-kaap, also known as Cape Malay Quarter. Next, visit Table Mountain, also known as God's Dining Table, to see the top of the world. It has served as the city's landmark and is regarded as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. We'll ride the cable car to the top if the weather is good. After that, we'll take a ferry over to Robben Island to visit what was once South Africa's most notorious prison. Nelson Mandela, the nation's founding father and the first black president, spent 18 years incarcerated there. The guides there will recount the history from their own perspectives and memories as former political offenders or jail guards.
We will tour the Cape Peninsula today. We'll travel through Sea Point, Clifton, and Camp's Bay before arriving in Hout Bay and boarding a ship for Duiker Island, home to thousands of seals. Tourists are not permitted to disembark on the island and may only observe from the boat in order to protect them. Then proceed to Cape Point Nature Reserve at the peninsula's southernmost point. Numerous small wild animals call it home, and it has an abundance of vegetation, animals, and stunning scenery. Following that, we'll ride the funicular to the lighthouse, which is located at a height of 286 meters, and then mosey on down to the beach. The following stop is Boulders Beach, a habitat for endangered Africa penguins that is close to Simon's Town. Finally, proceed through Kalk Bay and Muizenberg to the nation's renowned botanical garden, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. The number of plant species is around 7,000.
South Africa is well-known for its rich white, red, blended, and sparkling wines. Today, we will travel to Paarl, Stellenbosch, and Franschhoek, three of South Africa's major wine-producing regions. We'll make a pit stop along the way. You can sample top-notch wines in addition to learning about wine production and tasting methods.
Today, we will accompany you to the airport and bid you farewell. I hope you enjoyed the best South African tours.
