The Spectacular Rainbow Nation South Africa Adventure

Overview

South Africa with Cape Town and a safari in Timbavati

They call South Africa the Rainbow Nation – a kaleidoscope of colours, cultures and traditions – a land of great deserts, thundering oceans and golden bushveld – with a myriad of plant and animal species. Experience the magic of South Africa with this 10-night package.  Your journey begins at Africa’s Southern gateway.  Gaze at the spectacle that greeted the early explorers, as Table Mountain appears to rise from the sea – a stunning setting for a very special city. From the day you arrive in Cape Town, heading onto safari in the world-famous Kruger National Park and the Timbavati Private Game Reserve, until you depart, you will be both enthralled and delighted. 

Your first stop is Cape Town, fondly known to the locals as the Mother City. It is no secret that she will have you immersed in her playground from the moment you arrive. Marvel in the abundant sights, culture and history. Cape Town offers outstanding cuisine and wines, art expeditions, shopping, live music, theatre, beaches, National Reserves and nature to explore, penguin and seal colonies and a whole lot more.  Jwhen you feel like it cannot get any better, it’s time to bid the mother city farewell and head to the bush in glorious Kruger National Park, unapologetically one of the best places for safari and game viewing in the world!

On arrival at Skukuza Airport, you will be met and transferred by road to Rhino Post Safari Lodge. Rhino Post is an authentic safari lodge with only just eight bush suites, making it an intimate experience and with its prime position in the Kruger National Park, coupled with the fact that it is an unfenced camp, it certainly does provide abundant game viewing from both the lodge and when you’re out exploring on game drives. 

On arrival at the lodge, it’s time to settle in and before long, head out on your first guided safari. 

Here you will spend three glorious nights enjoying the game, the views, the food and the company.

Days 7 – 9

Early morning game activity, followed by breakfast and your road transfer to the Timbavati Private Game Reserve.

The Simbavati River Lodge is a gem in that it is uniquely positioned on the banks of Kruger park’s Nhlaralumi River and the lodge has a waterhole in front of the lodge’s dining area which elephants frequent throughout the day.
