Elephants and Elegance

Summary Of The Route and Costs

This 10 night trip will whisk you from Kruger to the Cape with a whole host of experiences in between. Meeting elephants, seeing waterfalls and looking down into one of the largest green canyons in the world, and dining at one of Cape Town's finest restaurants are just a snapshot of what you can expect from this holiday.

Beginning in Hazyview, you can spend 3 nights exploring the Lowveld Panarama Route and taking game drives into Kruger National Park itself. One of the highlights is visiting Blyde River Canyon, the second largest canyon in Africa and 'green' due to the subtropical foliage.

Then, you'll dive headfirst into a unique safari experience, spending 3 nights at the Relais & Chateux Camp Jabulani. Here, you'll stay in a luxurious suite buried deep in the bush with its very own private splash pool and viewing deck. The reserve itself is rich with wildlife and a place of breathtaking natural beauty.  You also can meet the Camp Jabulani elephants, whose herd has matured over time to become a very close knit family group. Each elephant has its own character and shares a unique bond with the rest of the group.

You'll then hop on a quick flight to Cape Town where you'll spend 4 nights at the 5* One&Only Cape Town, in the heart of the beautifully restored Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, a brilliant base for exploring the city.  Dine one evening at the hotel's top restaurant, Nobu, where innovative Japanese cuisine is infused with flavours and spices unique to South Africa.
