Day 1 - Johannesburg
Arrival in Johannesburg, transfer to your hotel for brief check-in. In the afternoon, a city tour of Johannesburg, this vibrant city is still the largest in South Africa. Johannesburg, also known as Egoli (the City of Gold), holds First World attractions for any traveller. This tour includes highlights like the Stock Exchange, De Beers (famous for diamonds) and George Harrison Park, where gold was first discovered in the late 1800’s. We visit the prestigious Northern Suburbs of Sandton, Houghton, Rosebank, and then cosmopolitan Hillbrow, a colourful insight to South Africa’s "Manhattan", once the most densely populated spot in the Southern Hemisphere.
Overnight: City Lodge Sandton (or similar).

Day 2 - Johannesburg – Kruger Park safari
We leave Johannesburg and drive eastwards via Witbank and Middelburg to Nelspruit, and enter the Kruger National Park in the southern end of the park. Our encounter with the wildlife starts here. Tonight we arrive at our camp. Listen to the sounds of the African night, perhaps we can hear hyena or lion calls, and an orchestra of crickets and other nocturnal species will fill the night.
Overnight: Skukuza or Pretoriuskop Rest Camps or similar, Kruger Park. (B,D)

Day 3 - Kruger Park safari
Today is devoted to viewing Africa’s wildlife as we search for the 'Big 5” as well as other animals. As we drive along we hope to see several varieties of mammals, birds and reptiles. Not knowing what will meet us around the next corner adds to the attraction of visiting Kruger Park. Your guide will give information about the species seen, and answer any questions you may have. We reach our camp at sunset. Some may want to take an optional night-drive in an open safari vehicle utilising high powered spotlights to find the nocturnal animals.
Overnight: Skukuza or Pretoriuskop Rest Camps or similar, Kruger Park. (B,D)

Day 4 - Panorama Route – Johannesburg – Cape Town
After a final safari drive and breakfast, we drive via Kowyn's Pass to the “Escarpment” and visit Bourke’s Luck Potholes. Enjoy a walking tour of this area, where you can see strange geological formations formed by the confluence of two rivers. Continue to Blyde River Canyon and see the majestic “Three Rondavels” and the impressive canyon formed by the erosion of the river. Stops will also be made at God's Window and the Lisbon Falls. Drop-off at O R Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg, for flight to Cape Town. * * (Cost of this flight not included in tour cost.
