You’ll then head over to the Cape Peninsula to take the funicular railway at Cape Point. From the top there are wonderful views of the peninsular and ocean.

    Kruger National Park was established in 1898 to protect big game that had been hunted to near extinction, it is now one of the most prolific animal habitats in South Africa, committed to animal conservation. Rising early this morning you'll head out with your experienced ranger into the Mluwati Concession. This private reserve is a mix of acacia and bushwillow woodland, open grassland and riverine forest. Your guide will help you seek out some of the resident wildlife; herds of elephant frequently pass through, zebra, impala and wildebeest lure in leopard and lions, while in the bushes lilac-breasted rollers and crested barbet add a flash of colour. After your morning game drive there will be time for lunch, a swim or perhaps a nap. In the afternoon, as the temperatures cool, you have another game drive within the park. You'll stop for a sundowner before journeying back to the lodge, looking for nocturnal animals by torchlight.

The western area of the central region has the greatest population of vultures than anywhere else in the park. The statistic around Kruger are incredible - 507 bird species, 114 reptiles, 147 species of mammal and over 23000 plant species, including the iconic baobab trees, and your safari ranger will help you seek out some of the various flora and fauna.

    Tour itinerary notes

    We've given each of our tours a comfort rating and a tour pace, walking or cycling grade to give you a general idea about the level of activity on each tour and the standard of accommodation you will be staying in at the end of your day's adventure. Often you'll stay in different styles of accommodation during your tour; so we make an average rating across the entire tour.  For more information on where you'll stay each night, please refer to the day by day tour itinerary.

    I was grateful to Explore with my booking as I was forced to cancel at a late date and then was enabled to rebook which meant the difference between having no summer holiday and a wonderful one. All of the administration seemed to be very efficient, friendly and professional.

    We have travelled all over the world with explore on their family adventure holidays. We have an only child and she benefited so much with instant friendships, and has some wonderful holiday memories. Explore has always been very helpful with the booking process, and we have found most of the tour leaders they use to be professional, committed, really good at their jobs.

    Danijela, our tour guide, was wonderful. She shared plenty of facts about Croatia with us and managed all the arrangements really well. One of our group had a birthday while we were away and Danijela gave her a present and we celebrated. Transfers to and from the airport went well. Prior to going, the staff on the phones were really helpful with any questions.
