Is This Trip for Me?

This journey will take you from the seaside city of Cape Town and the lush Cape Winelands to the African bushveld of the Kruger National Park. You'll soak up the Mother City's attractions, from Table Mountain and the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens to Cape Point and the African penguin colony at Boulders Beach in Simon's Town. You'll experience the beauty of the Cape Winelands, with their dramatic mountains and historic towns, and you'll taste their delicious wines and cheeses. For a complete change of pace, you'll board the elegant Blue Train on your way to the Kruger National Park for a safari that could bring you face to face with the Big Five and other African animals.

Safari lodges have guest rooms similar to a hotel with en-suite bathrooms. They are comfortably furnished with all facilities normally associated with a 3-star hotel. Tented lodges have rooms which are tents on a platform and with a roof and also have en-suite facilities with showers, flush toilets and hot as well as cold running water! Like a hotel bathroom. The safari lodges and bigger tented lodges can be more “touristy” and being larger establishment they can be a bit impersonal if you are travelling alone or as s couple. They suit those who prefer to have the infrastructure and facilities of a hotel and most have swimming pools and extensive grounds and gardens. The boutique lodges and camps can be very stylish and smart in terms of design and decor, often with very spacious rooms and even going so far in some cases as having plunge pools for each room. Eco-camps and smaller tented camps have insect-proof tents with en-suite facilities including safari shower and flush toilet. They give a more authentic safari experience but the tents are comfortably furnished with proper beds and you don’t need to bring your own sleeping bag! The emphasis is usually on having excellent guides and great wildlife viewing away from the crowds. Guests often eat together and people travelling alone usually say that they found the atmosphere friendly and enjoyed meeting other like-minded travellers around the campfire in the evening or at dinner. The Adventure Camps are a budget option with guests bringing their own sleeping bags and towels. Accommodation is in small dome tented with a mattress on the floor. Each tent has its own nearby cubicle with a flush toilet, safari shower, and wash basin. The Adventure Camps are suitable only for those who don’t mind “real camping” and can put with some degree of “roughing it”. Apart from the accommodation in simple dome tents, the meals and the guiding are the same standards as the higher quality camps and game drives are in 4x4 safari vehicles. For those on a limited budget, the Adventure Camps are a good alternative to the big tourist lodges and minibus tours for those for whom the safari experience is more important than hotel accommodation.
