An African safari is one of the most valuable investments that you can make. It is a physical journey that gathers spiritual and emotional wealth. At its completion, you are left with a brimming cache of wonderful memories. It is the 'portfolio of your life' that we are measuring.

A journey to Africa increases its real value by immense leaps and bounds. Africa, the cradle of civilization, entices all of your senses with the greatest treasures this planet has to offer.

Additional Information
Welcome to Cape Town, one of the most gloriously gorgeous cities in the world. Boasting a unique combination of spectacular scenery, vibrant cultures, period architecture and fabulous food and wines ….it is no wonder that Cape Town is considered the most enchanting city in the world! Enjoy the magnificent scenery: majestic mountains, pristine white beaches and lush green countryside. You can take it all in after riding a cable car to the top of famed Table Mountain….then descend for a half day escorted sightseeing tour of the city. Some leisure time allows you to explore further afield – perhaps into the fabled Winelands. Or experience the variety of restaurants, the nightlife or the rich cultural tapestry of the Cape’s townships. Cape Town & The Magical Mystery Safari mapFor an exciting contract to ‘big city’ life, wing to Johannesburg, meet your private car and driver, and take off into the scenic Waterberg region. With 5 distinct eco-systems, this area is one of the oldest inhabited enclaves on earth. Beneath the feet lie relics from the Stone Age and the escarpment walls still bear intriguing vestiges of San rock art. Entabeni’s upper escarpment offers majestic craggy rock formations and wide open grass plains. The lower escarpment is about 3 degrees warmer and is comprised of sandy wetlands. This invites a wide range of animals to the area and here you will find plentiful wildlife – including the Big Five. In addition to exciting game drives you can enjoy walking safaris, village visits, a sunset lake cruise, spectacular star gazing in the observatory or a helicopter flight to ‘the window at the top of the world’. Welcome to Entabeni Safari Conservancy – a most magical and mysterious land!
