South Africa: City, Sun & Safari
Your South Africa travel itinerary:
Day 1: Johannesburg
Fly from the UK to Johannesburg.
Days 2 - 3: Johannesburg
Arrive in Johannesburg and take a tour of the Soweto Township, the ‘city within a city’. Discover more about the Soweto uprising, and see the scars left by the events of that day on the local buildings and churches. Visit the Hector Pieterson Memorial and the humble former home of Nelson Mandela, now a family museum. Later, visit Cradle of Humankind in Maropeng, view the many humanoid fossils discovered here and learn more about the origins of our species.
Days 4 - 6:
See if you can spot the Big 5 on safari in Madikwe, a wild area of bushveld home to black and white rhino, buffalo, lion and cheetah. This 70,000 hectare reserve stretches all the way up to the Botswana border, and offers some truly unforgettable wildlife sightings. Set out on a guided 4x4 safari and keep your eyes peeled for African wild dogs, bush babies and zebras among the forests and savannahs. Finish you day with a refreshing sundowner as the sun sinks over the Bushveld.
Days 7 - 8:
Drive on to the mountain resort of Sun City, surrounded by more wild African bushveld and just next door to the wildlife of Pilanesberg National Park. With a myriad of entertainment and activities, Sun City is Africa’s largest playground and particularly entertaining for families. Choose from thrilling waterparks, games arcades, theatre shows, golf and even night safaris. While you’re you could splash out on a gentle hot air balloon safari over the bush, landing to a refreshing glass of sparkling wine followed by a delicious breakfast.
Days 10 - 11:
Return to Johannesburg and depart for the UK.
