From its soaring mountains and sparkling coastlines to its rolling winelands and wildlife-filled brush, you'll wake up to a new wonder every day. After stays in the vibrant city of Cape Town and the lush terrain of Kruger National Park, head to postcard-worthy Mozambique and slip away to serene beach life. Enjoy a city tour of Cape Town, which includes a visit to iconic Table Mountain! Stroll through drum circles and street performers at the picturesque V&A Waterfront, take an unforgettable hike up Lion's Head, and relax in the sun at breathtaking Camps Bay. Take a selfie with the African Penguins on Boulders Beach during your included Cape Peninsula tour, then sip your way through the Cape Winelands! From Cape Town, you'll travel northeast to the world-renowned Kruger National Park! Immerse yourself in the sights, smells, and feels of the African brush and - wait - was that a cheetah?! Take advantage of your two daily safari rides and spot the Big 5 and more. Hear lions roar, see elephants lift their trunks, and befriend adorable giraffes. From Kruger, you'll head to magical Mozambique. Feel yourself fall into a state of pure relaxation as soon as you arrive at your incredible beachside accommodation.
