CONTINUE YOUR JOURNEY
Day 1 – Arrive into Cape Town
Upon arrival, meet your private driver who will be escorting you to your accommodation in Cape Town.
Check-in at your accommodation and spend the rest of the day resting, or exploring the city at your own leisure.
Day 2 – Winelands
Accompanied by your private English-speaking guide and private driver, make your way through superb mountain ranges, vineyards and Cape Dutch homesteads.
You will have the opportunity to hand-pick organic produces at a farm and cook a traditional South African barbecue (braai) with fresh local ingredients. Indulge in experiences such as chocolate and wine pairing; little ones will be offered grape juice!
Day 3 – Cape Peninsula
Leave the city behind as you embark on one of the world's most breathtaking coastal drives along the Atlantic Seaboard towards Cape Peninsula, soaking in the magnificent mountain and beach views.
On your privately-guided day trip, you will spend time at a working fish harbour, meet with cool penguins chilling at the beach, and enjoy local ice-cream.
Day 4 – Cape Town to Waterberg Biosphere Reserve
After breakfast, you will be privately transferred to the Cape Town International Airport for your flight to Johannesburg. After touching down in South Africa's largest city, it's a scenic 3-hour drive to the Waterberg Biosphere Reserve.
Settle in to your bush home and enjoy the lodge facilities, which include a year-round heated swimming pool, sand pits, trampoline, and books and toys.
Day 5 – Waterberg Biosphere Reserve
The day usually starts with coffee and tea broughtto your room as your morning wake-up call at a time of your choice, followed by a continental or hot breakfast.
There are no predators in the Waterberg, so you can participate in a wide variety of wildlife viewing activities, ranging from walking safaris to swimming with horses to rhino tracking in 4WD vehicles. Guided pony rides for beginners and horse-back game viewing for more experienced riders are highly recommended.
Day 6 – Waterberg Biosphere Reserve to Madikwe Game Reserve
After breakfast, set off for your next safari adventure! Upon arrival at your safari lodge in the malaria-free Big Five Madikwe Game Reserve, check in and enjoy a leisurely lunch.
In the evening, embark on your game drive in a custom-built vehicle for up to 8 participants. Children aged 6 years and above can join their parents on regular game drives at the ranger guide's discretion, while those aged 3 to 5 years are welcome on a dedicated kids' game drive (parents can join, subject to seat availability).
Day 7 – Madikwe Game Reserve
Today, you will have the opportunity to catch more wildlife in their natural habitat on two game drives, one oin the morning and one in the evening.
In between your game drives, you can partake in other activities such as participating in local community experiences, visiting culturally and historically significant sights, connecting with local people, and more. Young ones will be entertained with experiences including rock painting and toasting marshmallows in the boma.
Day 8 – Madikwe Game Reserve
No two days in the bush are alike. If there's wildlife you have missed out seeing in the game drives, venture out again and you may just be rewarded for your persistence.
By now, you would have recognised that conservation is a way of life in the Madikwe Game Reserve. Your guide and lodge host will be able to share more about the latest wildlife conservation updates.
Day 9 – Madikwe Game Reserve to Johannesburg
Bid the bush and Africa's iconic species goodbye as you are transferred to the air strip for a light aircraft flight to Johannesburg.
Upon arrival in Johannesburg, relax in a specially arranged day-use hotel near the airport before connecting to your international flight home.
