South Africa's Kruger National Park

Game drives in Kruger National Park in South Africa's lowveldt

Kruger National Park, in the heart of the South African lowveldt, boasts one of the highest recorded densities of wildlife – and especially of leopards – in the African continent. On our private game drives in Kruger during your Tauck safari adventure, keep your eyes open for elephants, cheetah, rhinos, wild dogs and, of course, leopards, along with many other endangered and rare mammals, birds and reptiles.

Africa's "Big Five"

Cape Town by helicopter

Helicopter flightseeing excursion over Cape Town

Nestled between the mountains and the sea at the tip of the African continent – and home to such stunning geographical features as Table Mountain, Chapman's Peak and the Twelve Apostles – there are few cities on Earth with a natural setting as beautiful as that of Cape Town, South Africa. And the best way to take it all in is our helicopter flightseeing excursion along the magnificent Cape Peninsula.

Discovering the Cape Winelands

A wine-pairing dinner at a historic estate in the Cape Winelands

The Cape Winelands, South Africa's key wine producing region just outside of Cape Town, is one of the most beautiful in the world. Heading south from Cape Town, follow the wine trail skirting Table Mountain National Park, through towns reflecting their centuries-old Dutch origins, to the Constantia Valley, the heart of the Winelands since vineyards were first established in the region by Dutch settlers in the 17th century. One of the area's oldest wine estates is the Steenberg Farm; enjoy a wine-pairing dinner at the vineyard featuring its acclaimed wines.

Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge

Paradise in the bushveldt

At the Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge, the magic begins the moment you drive into the Sabi Sand Private Reserve bordering Kruger National Park. One of four Sabi Sabi lodges located in the heart of the reserve, your contemporary accommodations are designed to capture the moment as it happens... with moving views of the bushveldt from your luxury suite... endless wildlife sightings at the watering hole feet from the lounge, atrium and bar area... with an ever-vigilant guide on private game drives, twice daily, from dawn to dusk... during afternoon tea served with tradition... and at sundowners under a crimson sky.
