South Africa: Cape & Kruger Safari

September 2, 2009  By: Gretchen

If you’re like we are, it’s likely you are planning a fall or winter escape from the cooling temperatures and winter weather that’s just around the corner. Head South with us to the vibrant and diverse country of South Africa.

South Africa conjures images of wildlife safari, beautiful beaches and coastline, winelands, rich history and diverse cultures. Our fall and winter months are South Africa’s spring and summer, so it’s the perfect time to escape for some sun, wine tasting, wildlife watching and fine cuisine. Adding to the incentive to travel to South Africa–the lowest airfares in years, favorable exchange rates and exceptional deals on safaris.

One of our favorite South Africa safaris is the Cape & Kruger Safari. This 10-day tour includes Cape Town, the winelands and excellent wildlife viewing in a private game reserve near Kruger National Park. With guided tours and ample free time, this safari is perfect for the first-time visitor or return travelers who want to explore more of South Africa at a comfortable pace, with exceptional guides and intimate accommodations.

Throughout the trip stay in comfortable boutique guesthouses, inns and safari lodges with just a handful of rooms or suites and the highest level of services. In Cape Town experience the famous Cape Winelands complete with private winery tour and time to venture out on your own in the quaint town of Stellenbosch. Visit the penguins at Boulders Beach and the famous Cape Peninsula. On safari, our guides are highly trained naturalist guides who accompany you on twice daily game drives and walking safaris. Arathusa Safari Lodge, located in the renown Sabi Sand offers exceptional Big 5 game viewing. Enjoy sundowners in the bush, and fine cuisine and wines.
