Gather the whole family and create everlasting memories when you opt for the 7-day trip to the malaria-free area of Madikwe Game Reserve and the city of Cape Town, where fun is always guaranteed. Take advantage of a discounted price when booking this package.


Your African journey begins as you focus on a four-day safari in Madikwe Game Reserve. Madikwe is a malaria-free reserve and although it is one of the lesser-known parks in South Africa, it is regarded as one of the best conservation areas in Africa. During your stay at the luxurious Madikwe Safari Lodge, morning and afternoon game drives will offer the privilege of possibly seeing the Big 5 and the highly endangered African Wild Dog who thrive in this spectacular reserve.

After some phenomenal game viewing, Cape Town or better known as the “Mother City” of South Africa, welcomes you. In the heart of the city and surrounded by vibrant restaurants and cafes, the stylish apartment-style hotel of More Quarters will be your haven.

Cape Town is uniquely different with something to offer each person who visits. With a bird’s eye view from the top of Table Mountain to the sweeping vineyard valleys of the Cape Winelands. From diving with great white sharks to the breath-taking scenery of the Cape Peninsula.

If you looking for something out of the ordinary, then include a visit to the cobbled streets of Bo Kaap Cape Town with its brightly coloured 17th century houses, Kayaking in the naval port of Simons Town, meet local South African and indulge in South African dishes or visit a township where you will be sure to meet some inspiring people and learn how to cook an African meal.

This 7-day tour is a perfect combination of vibrant city life and Big 5 Safari.

This tour is ideal for couples, individuals seeking adventure and families: Children of all ages are welcome at Madikwe Safari Lodge with a special children's programme in place to entertain them.

7-nights Safari
I made a reservation for a 7-night safari trip to two specific Private Game Reserves in the Kruger National Park in South Africa, for one of the busiest months in Kruger: August. This reservation was made at the last minute. (3 days ago). A reservation that had some special features, with choices from someone who has already done (my husband and I) several safaris in other African countries. The architecture and design of the lodges are important to us on a professional level. And the Private Game Reserves had to be the best. Anja Meyer, from Safari.com, started and completed the reservation process in 4 days, two of which were weekends. Very efficient, fast and understanding what we wanted for our week in the bush. We are "addicted" to safaris, wildlife, bush, landscapes, nature... and we love Africa and the Africans. We can't wait for August to arrive. Thank you!

My first experience a number of months back wasn't as I wanted. I picked up with Dolan a little after this to find when the best time to Safari was with the chance of seeing the "big 5" and he was so helpful, guiding me to July-September. With the cooler winter months being the better chances to see more wildlife and the big five. This lead me on to deal with Jayson. Jayson has pulled out all the stops, working past 9pm Cape Town time( 8pm London UK) to help meet my needs. I travel out on 6th July and cannot wait, Thank you Dolan and Jayson.

Sara Van Coillie has been extremely helpful in making our Namibia trip fantastic! We have emails up on emails of Sara answering all my (many) questions months and months before our trip. I've had last minute questions and requests right before and during our trip and she always responds with record time and helps us out. I feel all of our needs have been met and I couldn't be happier with Sara as our travel representative! Highly recommend her! :)

Thanks Pascal you are amazing!
From the moment we arrived in South Africa, our safari adventure was nothing short of extraordinary. Nestled in the heart of the African wilderness, we found ourselves surrounded by the breathtaking landscapes of Kruger National Park, a haven for wildlife enthusiasts. Our accommodation was luxurious yet seamlessly integrated into the natural environment, offering us stunning views of the savannah from the comfort of our private deck. Each day began with an exhilarating sunrise game drive, where our expert guide shared his deep knowledge and passion for the local wildlife. Witnessing the "Big Five" was an awe-inspiring experience that left us in complete awe of nature's magnificence. The guides were incredibly knowledgeable and made sure we felt safe while immersing ourselves in the wilderness. Evenings were equally enchanting, with sundowner drinks enjoyed against the backdrop of a fiery African sunset, followed by sumptuous dinners under the starlit sky. The cuisine was a delightful fusion of local flavors and gourmet dishes, perfectly complementing the day's adventures. The sense of community at the lodge was heartwarming. The staff were attentive, ensuring every need was met with a smile, and fellow travelers quickly became friends as we shared stories around the campfire. Our South African safari was more than just a holiday; it was a transformative journey that connected us with nature and left us with lasting memories. For anyone seeking an adventure that combines luxury, education, and unparalleled wildlife encounters, a safari in South Africa is an absolute must. We left with hearts full of gratitude and a profound appreciation for the natural world, eagerly planning our return to this magnificent land.

A great experience
Pascal was wonderful to work with! When one camp option fell through he quickly found an equal alternative for our group. He was always very responsive to my many emails and texts. I would highly recommend Safari.com.
