About this program

Over the next two days, you’ll embark on a safari built for those short on time.

Starting off in Cape Town, you’ll stop off at a private game park where you can witness a number of iconic wildlife. Watch for lions, elephants, wildebeest, zebra, rhinos and kudus as they mind graze in the African plains. Sharing your time with a local ranger, you’ll learn more about the wildlife, as well as other species. 

On foot, you’ll explore the Garden Route on a bush walk safari. Following a professional ranger, you’ll learn about tracking wildlife and about the indigenous plants and their medicinal properties. 

Your second day will start with another game drive, a Klein Karoo Bush Safari. Search for other wildlife with the stunning Swartberg Mountains in front of you. Keep a keen eye out for giraffe, buffalo, rhino, springbok, wildebeest and so much more!

The next activity is totally optional, but we’re pretty sure you aren’t going to want to miss it! Here’s the opportunity to enjoy an Elephant Bush Walk alongside 3 rescued elephants. As you roam alongside them, you’ll learn so much about them and their behaviours. 

Finish the 2-day adventure with a drive along iconic Route 62, snapping photos of the mountains, wineries, orchards, and country roads before reaching bustling Cape Town.
