Cape & Kruger Family Explorer
$ 10,199 (Pps)
This popular private Cape & Kruger Family Explorer is ideal for families who don’t wish to drive themselves.
It combines some of the best of the Cape - Cape Town & Hermanus in the Southern Cape - with some of the best of the Kruger. With Big Five game-viewing, the Drakensberg escarpment & the Blyde River Canyon).
It is not exactly an escorted tour, as the same guide does not stay with you throughout. But it is a private tour with all tours and transfers on a private basis. Here we have shown it as a family tour but the Cape & Kruger Private Tour is a similar tour for couples. Using slightly different accommodation in some cases.
It can be an 11 night programme or a 12 night programme at no extra cost if you stay at Simbavati River Lodge with a 4 for 3 special offer.
Ideal for Older Kids
The Cape & Kruger Family Explorer is especially suited to families with slightly older children of between 6 and 12 years. But it can be booked with younger children as well. (However families with younger children under 6 years will need to take a private game vehicle. If they want their children to join them on game drives.)
The tour begins with some time in Cape Town. You have a private driver/guide available during your stay with one day at leisure. Then you head to the Whale Coast near Hermanus for a couple of nights. Enjoy the beaches, lagoons and whale-watching that this area is famous for. Next you fly up to the Kruger area for sightseeing in the Drakensberg Escarpment before enjoying three nights on safari in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve in the Greater Kruger Park.
If you have extra time to spend, we strongly recommend adding a third night on the Whale Coast... Plus in 2022, Simbavati River Lodge has a 4 nights for 3 offer and so you can stay an extra night FOR FREE.
