Tour Itinerary

Days 1-2: London - Kruger

We depart London Heathrow on an overnight flight to Johannesburg, arriving on Day 2. From here we transfer to our hotel, the 4-Star Protea Hotel Kruger Gate, where we enjoy our first dinner together. 

Days 3-4: Exploring Kruger

On both Day 3 and Day 4 we enjoy full-day game drives to track the iconic wildlife of Kruger National Park. A local, skilled ranger drives each jeep as we head out into the game park, finding us the best locations to see the animals and pointing out animals whose camouflage makes them almost impossible to spot.

Day 5: The Blue train 

This morning we travel to Pretoria railway station to begin our journey on the iconic Blue Train. A Blue Train butler will escort you to your cabin and provide an orientation of the train before inviting you for brunch as we begin our journey to Cape Town.

Day 6: Kimberley

This morning we arrive in Kimberley, the capital of South Africa's Northern Cape, which has enjoyed a prosperous past thanks to the discovery of diamonds in the area. Here we have the chance to visit 'The Big Hole' mine museum.

Day 7: The Blue Train to Cape Town

We enjoy breakfast on board the train as we travel towards Cape Town. On arrival, we enjoy an orientation tour of Cape Town taking in the main sights, as we transfer to the 5-Star Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel for four nights, superbly located overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

Day 8: Cape of Good Hope and Boulders Bay

Today we travel to Cape Point on the Cape of Good Hope, at the south-western tip of Africa. At Cape Point we take the Flying Dutchman funicular railway up to a vantage point, where we can admire the awe-inspiring views.

Day 9: Stellenbosch Vineyards

Today we travel by coach around two of South Africa's finest wine producing areas: the Franschhoek and Stellenbosch valleys. Here, we enjoy a delicious 'Boerebraai' lunch, a unique South African social event, where family and friends gather together to create a memorable dining experience.
