During this week-long trip, you'll stay adjacent to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfont at an award-winning hotel in a room boasting spectacular views of Table Mountain, the bustling Table Bay Harbour and Waterfront or the Cape Town city centre. After this, you'll fly up to Kruger for a 3 night safari in the Big 5 Klaserie Game Reserve, where you will sleep in a tree house at eye-level with the trees, offering a different perspective across the African bushveld from your private balcony.
Southern Sun The Cullinan offers grand hotel accommodation in the heart of Cape Town just moments from the Waterfront. The colonial architecture of the building is reflected throughout the hotel, with high ceilings, a balconied mezzanine level, and soaring columns around the large outdoor heated pool area.
Then you will experience a Kruger safari at nThambo Tree Camp and stay in a unique stilted wooded chalet in the heart of the Southern Klaserie Game Reserve. Klaserie is part of the Greater Kruger and shares unfenced borders with the Kruger National Park. Take part in thrilling Big 5 game drive safaris, where you can get within feet of the wildlife, and spend evenings in the open air boma, sharing stories of the bush with other guests.

At nThambo, every day begins and ends with a game drive through this vibrant part of the Southern Klaserie Game Reserve, while the camp offers open views onto an active waterhole and all the animals that use it. Leopard and lion, Africa's biggest cats, prowl the bushveld and their calls can be heard in the night when you are falling asleep. Other wildlife you may encounter on game drives include elephant, rhino, buffalo, impala, kudu, zebra, giraffe, steenbok, duiker, mongoose, baboon, vervet monkey, hippo, warthog, and many others.
After you return from your morning game drive, you will have time to enjoy breakfast before you are transferred back to Hoedspruit Airport, where you will check in for your flight home via Johannesburg.
