Is This Trip for Me?

This 2 weeks journey is a perfect way to appreciate what South Africa has to offer. Starting with a trip on the Blue Train, we have included a stay in Cape Town and then a self-drive through the Winelands, Oudtshoorn and St Francis Bay, ending in Shamwari Game Reserve for a chance to see the Big Five. This trip works for adventure-seeking couples, as well as for families with children of 10 years+.
