Begin your trip in a city centre location in Cape Town where all the city's most celebrated attractions are just a short walk or drive away, then head to the Timbavati Game Reserve for some exciting Big 5 game drives, staying in an authentic tented camp in a natural wilderness environment.
Protea Fire&Ice is situated in Tamboerskloof. During your stay here, enjoy the major attractions in the city (Table Mountain, Robben Island, township tour, Camps Bay, V&A Waterfront, Kirstenbosch Gardens, numerous museums and galleries) and take a day trip down to the Cape Peninsula, stopping on the way back at Boulders Beach which is home to one of only 2 mainland nesting colonies of African penguins in South Africa.
Then you fly across to the Kruger Park for your safari adventure. Shindzela Tented Safari Camp is situated within the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger National Park. It is a simple, comfortable and affordable South African bush camp, offering a host of wildlife activities including game drives and walking safaris trails. Each tent has its own deck/porch where you can sit and relax. The camp has an informal, relaxed atmosphere and is alive with warm African hospitality.
At the end of your safari, you will return to Johannesburg Airport by road, giving your opportunity to see more of South Africa before you depart.
Arrive into Cape Town Airport. Collect your luggage then make your way to the Europcar Rental office. Complete the necessary paperwork - you will need to present your driving licence, passport and credit card. The keys to your hire car will then be handed over to you.
