Introduction

With its bustling harbor, world-class beaches, top-notch vineyards, and its mountainous surroundings brimming with diverse flora and fauna, Cape Town consistently captivates the hearts of all who visit and it is a fitting start to this sensational safari.   Continue to the famed Cape Winelands where you can explore the area’s many world-class wine estates and impressive range of excellent restaurants or simply browse the quaint, upmarket boutiques strewn along the town’s lovely tree-lined avenues.  You then set off on safari, first to Kambaku in the ‘Timbavati’ Game Reserve, which means 'the place where something sacred came down to earth from the heavens'.  Your wildlife adventure continues in the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve, a private premier game viewing destination. It was the first ever private nature reserve established in South Africa. The landscape features 65 000 hectares of savannah-covered land interspersed with watering holes, dry river beds, lowveld woodlands, and the perennial Sabi and Sand rivers.
