Welcome to South Africa!
Cape Town is the second-most populous city in South Africa, after Johannesburg, and also the legislative capital of South Africa. Colloquially named the Mother City, it is the largest city of the Western Cape province. A coming-together of cultures, cuisines and landscapes, there's nowhere quite like Cape Town, a singularly beautiful city crowned by the magnificent Table Mountain National Park.

Possibility to have lunch in one of the restaurants of the city before check into your accommodation.
After your checking you will have the rest of the afternoon at leisure.

Kruger National Park, our biggest national park here in South Africa, 20,000sq km and home to a huge variety of animals including the Big 5. It lies across the provinces of Mpumalanga and Limpopo in the north of South Africa, just south of Zimbabwe and west of Mozambique.
Check-into our accommodation at lunch time
Our accommodation is located on the outskirts of the park, 5km away from the Malelane Gate, in the Southern Area of the Park. Our guesthouse faces the Kruger Park, so seeing animals like elephants, hippos and many types of antelopes is quite often. Especially as the guesthouse sits in front of the Crocodile river which creates a natural boundary between Kruger and the civilized world.

Lunches will be back in camp, where we will get time to relax before departing on the afternoons game drive until sundown where we wait till dark has set in. This gives us the chance to see the nocturnal animals and we also learn about the sounds and the night sky.

Victoria Falls presents a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, forming the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It was described by the Kololo tribe living in the area in the 1800s as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ – ‘The Smoke that Thunders’.
In more modern terms Victoria Falls is known as the greatest curtain of falling water in the world.
Columns of spray can be seen from miles away as, at the height of the rainy season, more than five hundred million cubic meters of water per minute plummet over the edge, over a width of nearly two kilometers, into a gorge over one hundred meters below.
