Day 1
You will be met at Johannesburg Airport and transferred to your hotel in this thriving city.
    
Check in and relax under warm blue South African skies in 'Egoli' - the city of gold.
Day 2
Today we recommend an optional full day Journey to Freedom tour - starting with a visit to the Apartheid Museum, a living memorial to racial segregation.
 
We continue to the sprawling township of Soweto for lunch (own account). Here we visit the Hector Pieterson Museum and drive past the original home of Nelson Mandela, with option of visiting this small museum (entrance fee for own account), before returning to Johannesburg in the late afternoon.
 
Note: Tour departs on a Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday & Sunday only (min 2).
Day 3
This morning we suggest an optional tour to view some of South Africa’s greatest archaeological treasures, as you visit the Sterkontein Caves and the Maropeng Visitors Centre situated in the Cradle of Humankind - a World Heritage site dating back billions of years. Dr Broom found one of the first ape-men in these caves, which have since yielded many incredible archaeological treasures.
 
Afterwards we continue to Lesedi, an authentically reconstructed African village showcasing the culture, arts and crafts of South Africa’s five main tribes. Enjoy an included meal at Lesedi, a visit to a sangoma (traditional healer) and traditional African dancing before returning to Johannesburg.
 
Note: You will need to squat or crawl through two short sections of the Sterkfontein Caves, so the caves are not suitable for anyone who suffers from claustrophobia or has mobility issues.
Day 4
Today transfer 5-hours through the rural North West Transvaal to the beautiful malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve.
   
After checking in to your lodge, enjoy your first thrilling game drive in an open-top game viewing vehicle accompanied by a lodge ranger. Game viewing opportunities should present themselves almost immediately in this vast game sanctuary and hopefully you will see several species of antelope, zebra, wildebeest and maybe even wild dogs - as well as several of the Big Five today. Then dine under the stars in the African bushveld.
Days 5 To 6
Rise at dawn to take advantage of the best game viewing conditions of the day, as you enjoy a thrilling open-top game viewing drive with your lodge ranger in the Madikwe Game Reserve. Explore the vast plains, which offer magnificent game viewing and the opportunity to search for all of the Big 5 - Lion, Elephant, Buffalo, Leopard and Rhino - before returning to your lodge for breakfast.
  
The rest of the morning is free to relax by the swimming pool or enjoy bird watching, before setting out again in the late afternoon for another game drive. With numerous different species of mammals and reptiles in the park you can hope to see cheetah, giraffe, hippo, kudu, crocodiles, sable antelope, waterbuck, warthogs, baboons, wild dogs and many other interesting animals. Outstanding bird watching is also guaranteed!
  
After a beautiful African sunset, enjoy the balmy evening and pristine stars of the Milky Way as you have never seen them before – as well as the spectacular Southern Cross.
 
Children < 6 are not allowed on open top game drives
Day 7
Time permitting, enjoy a final early morning game drive in Madikwe Game Reserve before your 5-hour transfer to Johannesburg Airport for your onward flight.

You will be met at Cape Town Airport and transferred to your hotel in this beautiful city, within sight of Table Mountain.
 
Check in and relax in your magnificent surroundings.
Day 8
Today is free for independent sightseeing in Cape Town.
 
We recommend you purchase a day pass onboard the convenient Hop-Off Bus, which stops at all Cape Town’s key sights and beaches. The "Red Route" bus stops at the Table Mountain base station, where you can buy a ticket to ascend by cable car and enjoy one of the world’s most famous views. Continue to Camps Bay beach and the many attractions of the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.
Day 9
Today we recommend an optional full day tour to the beautiful Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, where you may see baboons, ostrich and perhaps even dolphins or whales in season (July/November).
  
Your tour travels through Hout Bay and along spectacular Chapman’s Peak Drive to the Cape Point peninsula, returning via Simons Town, Fish Hoek, Constantia and Kirstenbosch Gardens. This is a scenic tour of the whole Cape Peninsula, with the optional opportunity of visiting the penguin colony at Boulders Beach.
Day 10
Today we recommend an optional full day tour to the renowned Stellenbosch Winelands, travelling through the scenic Franschhoek Valley where a handful of French Huguenot refugees started South Africa’s now famous wine industry.
 
Explore the historic university town of Stellenbosch and several wine estates on this famous wine route, which stretched from Paarl through to Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Enjoy a cellar tour and some wine tasting, before returning to Cape Town in the late afternoon.
