Adventure Series Overview

Adventure Series trips offer great value by using more moderate accommodations, or, as in this case, we offer 4-star lodgings due to the excellent rates we have access to. Tours in Cape Town are shared; you'll join a small-group of no more than 12 people.

This 9-day adventure in South Africa includes time on safari in the Greater Kruger area where you'll stay within the Kapama Game Reserve. Your stay includes morning and afternoon safari drives in an area that is home to some 42 mammal species and approximately 350 bird species that inhabit the rolling savannah grasslands and riverine forests. Follow this with time in Cape Town, considered by some to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world! You'll stay at the V&A Waterfront area and we include a full day Peninsula Tour and a half day City & Table Mountain tour.

Accommodations – Our suggested hotels are both 4-star properties.
