Cape Town to Kruger Photo Safari

Overview

Cape Town to Kruger Photo Safari

Begin your South Africa Cape Town to Kruger photo safari adventure in the lovely coastal town of Cape Town at the famed Cape Grace Hotel on the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront.  Your private guide will show you the sites of Cape Town and the gorgeous areas around Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope.

Wine tours in Stellenbosch and Fanschoek accompanied by your private guide add delightful touches to the itinerary.  Overnights in the wine country taking in the beautiful views and delicious South African wines are a must.

Fly to the famed Sabi Sands Private Game Reserves staying at one of the Mala Mala luxury safari lodges adjoining the Kruger National Park.  Three days of the arguably the finest game viewing in South Africa.  We consistently choose Mala Mala because of their proximity to Kruger Park.  It is the first private reserve adjoining the park and it has exclusive traversing rights.  This means that no other photo safari lodges my use this property for game viewing.  Therefore there are limited vehicles at the amazing sightings.Cape Town to Kruger Photo Safari

TRAVEL INSURANCE:  REQUIRED!  

Links to the companies we recommend:

Travelex Insurance       Ripcord Insurance

While we do everything in our power to protect our clients from travel problems, we cannot prevent illness, natural disasters, wars, deaths, lodge closings and more; we live in uncertain times!  The only way to protect yourself and your investment is through travel insurance. Travel insurance can provide medical coverage, cancellation due to natural disaster, illness, death in the family, lodge closings and other unknowns; in this day and time, anything is possible.  Lodges count on you to protect your investment as they cannot refund your payments due to the nature of the product they offer.

Finally, travel insurance is time-sensitive and must be purchased within a certain number of days of your deposit to cover preexisting conditions, lodge closings and other various issues.  It is still available later but the benefits may be more limited.

Both companies offer evacuation insurance in addition to their travel insurance but Ripcord has more thorough coverage in this area.

The Ripcord membership and travel Insurance provides the highest levels of medical, security, evacuation and rescue services in the industry combined with travel insurance:

  • Remote rescue services from point of injury or illness
  • Medical evacuations to the member’s home hospital of choice
  • The best evacuation and rescue triggers that include rescues for medical conditions that will result in permanent injury in addition to just requiring hospitalization
  • Security extraction services for geopolitical events and natural disasters
  • Involuntary detention resolution services for members who are held against their will
  • Consulting services from special operations veterans, paramedics, nurses, and physicians
  • Travel insurance

Testimonials

Corinna, you were right, this was a trip of a lifetime. We all had an incredible time. I couldn’t pick one place over another because each one was fabulous. Gisella was so fun and everything she had planned was so good, even the crazy weather added to our adventure…

We tracked down all of the big 5. We saw 4 Manyeleti male lions sleeping, Eyerfield lion pride, good rhino sighting, many elephants, herd of buffalo and 6 different leopards, including two leopard cubs. Good general game, zebras, kudu, many impala and also one male cheetah
Give us some time and we want you to plan us another adventure. New Zealand or maybe the Amazon??
