Flight Considerations:
  • Cape Town / Johannesburg - 2hrs, Cape Town / Port Elizabeth – 1hr, Johannesburg / Port Elizabeth – 1,5hrs
  • Most game reserves are within a further 1,5 hr flight from Johannesburg.
  • International flights - if your flight goes directly to Cape Town it will probably save some time to do the tour post-meeting. Remember you can use your visit to for example Mala Mala as part of your flight back home and link up with your international flight from Johannesburg instead of Cape Town.
  • If your focus is on wildlife we recommend that you fly in and out of the reserves.

Felicity and Mike, UK
We arrived back safely in the UK earlier this week. We are missing the light and warm South African sun as it is now freezing and with snow lying in many parts of the UK. However the memory of the South African spring light and beautiful scenery is still imprinted on our minds and helps banish the cold.

Thank you so much for looking after us so well and being such an interesting tour guide. We enjoyed all our discussions and learnt much more about your beautiful country than we would without your insight.

Some wonderful memories are the views from table mountain, standing in the wind at Cape Point, whale watching, the garden in the Little Karoo, the passes in the Karoo, lunch at Prince Albert, the fynbos, the peace at De Zeekoe, Knysna in the storm, Storms River mouth, seeing elephants, rhinos, cheetahs and lions almost close enough to touch and a leopard playing with her cub in the early morning light.Kirstenbosch totally lived up to expectations.

We were very impressed with all our accommodation and the warm welcome we received everywhere.

So all in all thank you for putting together such an excellent package for us and for taking us on our adventure yourself.

We loved your country and hope that with all the determination we saw to succeed that the country will have peaceful and prosperous future. We do hope to return one day. In the meantime I will recommend you to any of our friends visiting South Africa.
