Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival at Tswalu Kalahari Reserve

The day one of your South Africa Safari begins by your arrival at Tswalu Kalahari Reserve. The moment you reaches the land of Johannesburg, you will take a short flight to Tswalu Kalahari Reserve, Tswalu is the biggest private game reserve in South Africa. After the hours-long journey to South Africa, this place would be the best place to sit, relax and get rid of post-flight body pain. To add more weight to the day, try considering your feet into the warm sand and enjoying a cocktail as the setting sun colors’ the sky. Spend your days relaxing in your hotel and evenings pampering your taste buds with the luscious South African cuisines.

Day 2: Spot the iconic and unique wildlife at Kalahari

Kalahari is a home to over 70 mammal species and 200+ bird species. This makes it one of the best places to explore when on a South Africa safari. While exploring Kalahari, you will be told that the environment is harsh for the wildlife that resides there. Beside this harshness, wildlife lives there and this is what makes this place unique for a safari thing. You will get to know how these animals are sustaining in such a harsh environment. You will also be able to spot South Africa’s national animal, the springbok which is again unique. So, spend an entire day at Kalahari and explore the rare and beautiful wildlife at a leisurely pace.

Day 3: Go face to face with the African animals

Game viewing means nothing if it does not allow you to encounter wildlife closely. At Kalahari, you will be allowed to go face to face with the wildlife of Africa. Experience the thrill of approaching an antelope herd while enjoying the horseback safari which allows better game viewing as compared to the noisy 4-wheeler vehicle safari.

Day 4: From deserts to the town

After spending the first three days of your safari in the lap of mother nature, it’s time to travel back to the town from the deserts. Wake up in the morning and enjoy your morning drink while gazing at the marvelous bushes. Capture as many moments as you can because, after this, you are going to travel back to the town. A private luxury vehicle will transfer you to the Cape Grace Hotel, in the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront shopping complex. After reaching the hotel, you can spend the afternoon exploring the fashion and curios on offer. Wandering around the harbor and enjoying a bite to eat in one of the many restaurants will also be a great idea. Have dinner, enjoy a drink and relax at the Hotel’s bar, and give a perfect wrap up to your day.

Day 5: Climbing up the Table Mountain

If you are in Cape Town, you can not escape from visiting the imperious and the stunning Table mountains,  flat-topped mountains forming a prominent landmark overlooking the city of Cape Town in South Africa. Book a full day private tour up to the height of table mountains and revel being surrounded by the rocky mountains. It’s not only the mountains that will draw your attention but the surroundings as well. Feel slimy kelp, beveled starfish and smooth hermit crabs, magnificent picturesque scenery,  impressive 17th century Castle of Good Hope (the country’s oldest colonial building), marvelous tree squirrels in the beautiful Company Gardens, and much more. Do not miss the magnificent panoramic views of Signal Hill.
