Cape Town & Sanbona Safari

Our 7 day Sanbona Safari and Cape Town program combines the best of the bush and the ocean, allowing our guests to see both the Big 5 and the Marine Big 5. On your 7-day trip to South Africa you will experience sunset safaris with the big cats, morning encounters with African penguins, see herds of elephant feed right on your doorstep and, in season, observe the giants of the ocean, the southern right whales.

A personal tour guide will pick you up from the airport and you’ll make your way to the Cape Grace Hotel at the world famous V&A Waterfront. The next four days are then spent in the lap of luxury, enjoying the iconic sights and sounds of Cape Town and surrounds, including Table Mountain, Robben Island, The Cape of Good Hope, the Boulders Beach Penguin Colony, the Stellenbosch winelands and the many iconic beaches. As an optional extra, you can also cage-dive with great white sharks!

After four nights in Cape Town, we will transport you directly to the majestic Sanbona Game Reserve (three hours drive from Cape Town). Here you will spend the next two nights experiencing the little Karoo with its unique vegetation and abundance of wildlife in the reserve. Your whole holiday will be malaria free and avoiding malaria areas will cut down on travel times.

On the last day of your trip, you are chauffeured to the airport after an early morning game drive through the Sanbona reserve and a leisurely breakfast.

Alternate preferred hotel options in Cape Town: The Table Bay, the One and OnlyLawhill Apartments.
