For a lifetime’s worth of thrills and memories, South Africa is the place to go to on a luxury safari. Visiting Meerkat colonies, kayaking with the waddling penguins, driving across the grassy plains of the Kalahari desert to see prides of Lions, herds of Giraffes and elephants, and the thousands of wildebeests that cross the desert every year to find greener pastures. Coming back to civilization, in Cape Town and Johannesburg, meet the local artisans, tour the vibrant neighborhoods, enjoy the impromptu ecstatic drumming and dance performances, and tuck into a delicious range of modern and traditional cuisines.
South Africa is perfect for a family getaway, thanks to its plethora of wildlife and activities that can be indulged in. Begin your journey from Johannesburg, where our guide will meet and transfer you to the Morukuru Family, which is a gorgeous property right in the middle of the Madikwe Game Reserve. Stay two days for safari activities; enjoy your time as a family or the kids can accompany the lodge’s expert naturalists. Next stop is Tswalu Motse in Kalahari Desert, where guests have the opportunity to view the Meerkats in action. Head on to Cape Town, one of the most dynamic and cosmopolitan destinations in the world, where you can discover its natural beauty, culture and history. Go on a city tour in one of the vintage motorcycle sidecars. Ponder the controversial past of Robben Island, which was used to hold prisoners; or kayak with the Penguins off the coast. Pay a visit to Plettenberg Bay, a town that is almost an island, and top it all off with a visit to Knysna Featherbed and the Elephant Sanctuary. Your desire to interact with wild animals on their own turf can be fulfilled with a journey to South Africa. Lastly, a day of leisure on the coast awaits you before you head towards Johannesburg for your flight back home.
