Day 4

Kruger National Park

Enjoy morning and afternoon game drives exploring the greater Kruger area.
The greater Kruger area is one of the world’s wilderness areas – and with good reason, it is home to 147 mammal species, including the prized ‘Big 5’ – lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo and rhino. The park is home to the world’s largest population of white rhino, a critically endangered species. Sprawling over two million hectares, Kruger is the size of a small country, making this vast, unfenced wilderness one of the great African safari destinations. Kruger is also unique in that visitors are encouraged to explore on their own – the extensive network of paved roads within the park makes it easy for visitors to self-drive and tailor their safari experience to their own interests and schedule.

Day 8

Cape Town

Take a ferry to Robben Island and enjoy an informative guided excursion with a former political prisoner including a viewing of Nelson Mandela’s cell. For nearly 400 years, Robben Island, 12 kilometres from Cape Town, was a place of banishment, exile, isolation and imprisonment. It was here that rulers sent those they regarded as political troublemakers and social outcasts and the unwanted of society. During the apartheid years, Robben Island became internationally known for its institutional brutality. The duty of those who ran the Island and its prison was to isolate opponents of apartheid and to crush their morale. Some freedom fighters spent more than a quarter of a century in prison for their beliefs. Those imprisoned on the island succeeded on a psychological and political level in turning a prison ‘hell-hole’ into a symbol of freedom and personal liberation. Robben Island came to symbolise, not only for South Africa and the African continent, but also for the entire world, the triumph of the human spirit over enormous hardship and adversity. The rest of the day is at your leisure. (B)
