Discover the beauty of South Africa on a 9-day tour that explores one of the best cities in the world, scenic wine country, and a pristine big five game reserve.


Starting off in the city of Cape Town you will have the opportunity to truly experience the life of a Capetonian, with its brightly colored houses, artisan shops, streetside cafes, and award-winning restaurants. Cape Town boasts an incredibly rich heritage, gorgeous coastlines, and is home to the iconic Table Mountain - a natural wonder. Your time in Cape Town is best spent exploring the cobbled streets, sampling Capetonian cuisine, seeing an African penguin up-close, and simply admiring the gorgeous vistas.

Your adventure continues in one of the most renowned wine country regions - Franschhoek. It is here where you can indulge in the finest cuisine paired perfectly with award-winning wines. The Franschhoek Valley is renowned for producing outstanding Méthode Cap Classiques with a total of twenty-four producers. The oldest Cape-Dutch home known as Babylonstoren will be your abode for the next two days. Being a working farm, you can look forward to wine tastings, tea rituals, and garden to table dining experiences.

Leaving the country behind, your journey continues to the renowned Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, where you will have the opportunity to explore the African bush in open safari vehicles and on foot. The Sabi Sands is well known for its big cat sightings and incredible encounters with the famous big five. It is also a bird lovers paradise with over 300 bird species recorded. Sabi Sabi Little Bush Camp offers an intimate bush setting and incredible comfort, making for an unforgettable safari experience.

The unique locations, personalized service, and once in a lifetime experiences offered on this tour make it ideal for solo explorers, couples and families.


Day 1 - 3: Cape Town

Today you arrive at Cape Town International Airport where you will be met and transferred by road to your guest house. After checking in to your gorgeous room, you will have the next few days to explore Cape Town.

Included in the tour price is a half day Cape Town city tour and a full day Cape Peninsula tour which collectively visit some of Cape Town's most popular tourist attractions, including Table Mountain and Boulders Beach.

Cape Town has something for everyone, including shark cage diving, hiking, kayaking, and cultural tours to name but a few. It would be best to consult with your travel expert for more information on the various tour options.

Accommodation: Welgelegen Boutique Guest House

Day 4 - 5: Franschhoek

After a sumptuous breakfast, you gather your belongs and transfer by road to Babylonstoren where you will check in and enjoy the rest of the afternoon either exploring the farm or nearby wine estates. Franschhoek offers the experience of wine trams, horseriding, cheese and wine tastings, chocolatiers, fine dining restaurants, boutiques, museums, and monuments. Your time in Franschhoek is free for you to enjoy as you wish.

Nothing tastes better than meals prepared from fresh ingredients picked directly from the garden. Babylonstoren has its own fruit and vegetable garden which supplies both the Babel and Greenhouse restaurants. Their menus are truly inspiring and the food is out of this world, so be sure to dine there at least once during your stay.

Accommodation: Babylonstoren

Day 6 - 8: Sabi Sabi Game Reserve

After a hearty breakfast and perhaps one last walk around the farm, you bid farewell to the wine country and transfer back to Cape Town International Airport for your scheduled flight to Skukuza Airport. On arrival, you will be met and transferred by road to the lodge but be sure to look out for animals along the way.

During your stay at Sabi Sabi Little Bush Camp, you will embark on exhilarating dawn and dusk open-vehicle game drives led by highly trained guides and trackers who are passionate about wildlife and conservation. You also have the opportunity to explore the bush on foot, learning about the fauna and flora that make up this pristine wilderness.

Sabi Sabi Little Bush Camp allows you to savor African-inspired cuisine, outdoor dining under the African sky, and conversations around the campfire.

Accommodation: Sabi Sabi Little Bush Camp

Day 9: Depart Skukuza

After one final morning game drive and an incredible breakfast spread, you will gather your belongings and head back to Skukuza Airport for your scheduled flight to Johannesburg's OR Tambo Airport. On arrival, you will connect with your onward travel arrangements.

Unorgettable trip in South Africa
We have spent 12 days as a family in South Africa with my 3 children and my wife who is in a wheelchair. Thanks to Pascal, Safari.com consultant, we were able to spend an unforgettable moment with a great program while being well accompanied despite our constraints. I recommand particularly the "Monwana game lodge" for a safari in Hoedspruit. It's an amazing place with very nice people and a real family atmosphere. Thank you to the entire Safari.com team for this unforgettable trip.

Superior service, knowledgeable, transparent, amazing can-do attitude
These guys get 10/10. I have booked with them a few times. To Kruger National Park, including both public and private(concession) camps, flights and car hire. Their senior agent, Dolan is exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble. Attention to detail, transparency, and 'can-do' attitude are out of the ordinary. I recently came into contact with Tanya at safari.com as well. It looks like all their agents are similarly well trained. Thank you. I cannot recommend Dolan and his team highly enough.

Cape Town miracle
I was in Cape Town, South Africa recently for an athletic competition and had allowed myself a week of personal time to relax and properly conclude the trip, but had not bothered to plan a safari to occupy the time. I was skeptical of the cost and whether I would enjoy the experience, however a couple days into that final week it occurred to me, in a bit of a panic attack, what a waste it would be not to take advantage of this opportunity. I hopped online and started looking at flights to Johannesburg (almost all the safaris in SA start there with an early morning pick up), but it was basically impossible to get a flight early enough and/or to coordinate with the multiple safaris operating in or just outside of Kruger. With no apparent options available to turn my remaining 4 1/2 days into even a 3 day safari I stumbled on the most obvious website one could imagine, Safari.com. I'd completely given up negotiating all the variables on my own but here was a safari travel agent that might be able to help me .. and they were based right out of Cape Town, literally a stones throw from my lodgings. Serendipity, or so i hoped. I immediately sent out an email and crossed my fingers .. for roughly an hour and a half, at which point Dolan from Safari.com responded to me requesting I give him a call so that we could expedite potential arrangements. My in country phone plan wasn't able to make calls, but we arranged for him to call me and not 3 hours after being in the grip of despair Dolan got through to me and far from notifying me of how absurd it was to hold out hope for a literally, last minute safari adventure with barely 4 days available to me, he had already worked out all the details I'd sent and created a preliminary safari trip that would bypass Johannesburg airport for a flight the next morning to a closer, much, much smaller airport where I would be picked up taken, not to a 3 day safari, but a full 4 day safari, then back to the tiny, tiny airport for a return flight to Cape Town with 2 hours to spare for my return leg all the way home. It almost feels like an afterthought, after the minor miracle Dolan was able to conjure up, but the safari itself at Simbavati Lodge was just an absolutely stunning experience. The single "tent" he booked me was as luxurious as any 4 star hotel I've stayed in, the game drives, one every morning, one every evening were more amazing than I could have ever imagined, and the food, 3 meals a day with snacks and an open bar was sublime. I could go on about the wonderful staff, or the wonderful other safari goers you can meet and grab a drink with, or the different animals walking through the open lodge facilities daily .. but I've gone on long enough. I'll simply conclude by saying .. safari, absolutely, yes, do it, it is amazing. And when you do decide, Safari.com will do you right and if you have the pleasure of working with Dolan, do give him my thanks .. the entire experience was the best part of my trip :)

A great company
What to say! We planned a South African Safari for 2020 with Safari.com. We researched companies and took a chance on one we had never heard of before. Henry Franklin was our agent, we gave him our budget and wish list. He came up with a wonderful looking trip and we made our choices! Then came Covid, preventing us from going. We couldn’t have been in better hands. Henry rebooked everything for the next year. He kept us updated on how things looked there. When in 2021, we decided it still looked iffy, he rebooked us a second time for 2022. We couldn’t have been happier with the service we had in a rough time for all. We had a wonderful experience on our trip when we finally got to go!! Henry had everything so well organized and gave us a detailed list of what transfer companies would be meeting us and when. When Airlink bumped us and put us on standby returning from Victoria Falls, we called the concierge number Henry had given us and Catherine worked hard on this and got us back on our flight. The Safari.com team had our back and we have no regrets. Would definitely use them again. Our lodging was wonderful, saw the big 5 within first 2 drives. Henry definitely knew the territory and did a great job matching what we wanted with where he suggested we go and stay. Thanks Safari.com, Henry and Catherine!

I've recently interacted with Dolan and hands down he's been the best travel agent that I've every worked with. He was a wealth of experience and knowledge which shows volumes. He took into consideration my budget and my individual needs to tailor make a package with recommendations for my preference,he knows Kruger and Greater Kruger like the back of his hands and I will wholeheartedly recommended his services. He is truly an asset to his institution.
