At a Glance
Day 1: Cape Town to Private Game Lodge
Departing Cape Town, we head out along the N1 climbing over the spectacular Du Toit's Kloof Mountain pass, joining the beautifully scenic Route 62 after Worcester and then through the towns of Robertson & Ashton where we can enjoy a lovely informal wine tasting and light lunch (not included). Then its over a beautiful mountain pass, down to Swellendam and continuing along the N2 to arrive by late afternoon at the lodge ...
Alternatively we can take the direct route through the rolling farm hills of the N2, arriving earlier at the lodge for more time to relax around the pool. Welcome drinks & snacks are provided upon arrival and after you have settled into your room/chalet, you can expect a 2 hour early evening game drive where you will have the opportunity to spot some of the many animal species and experience the atmosphere of the bush on a sundowner stop. Once you return to the lodge, its time for a delicious safari dinner at the restaurant before retiring for the night.
There are 2 types of en-suite accommodation available:
There are 14 lodge rooms separated by a common lounge & bar area and opening onto green lawns with 2 pools and a deck overlooking the reserve. These rooms are suitable for families where an extra bed is required in the room.
There are also numerous chalets (rondawels) scattered in a small valley overlooking the reserve below, all interlinked via raised timber walkways. They are more private with a small patio, yet involve a quick walk to the pool & deck area.
Each of the above options are a short walk away from the main lodge, reception, bar & restaurant area.
Overnight: 4* Lodge Room with en-suite bathroom - dinner, bed and breakfast basis
Day 2: Private Game Lodge to Cape Town
Awake to the sounds of the bush and depart on a 2 hour sunrise game drive but don't worry, there will be a coffee stop on the way! Back at the lodge a hearty buffet breakfast in the Serengeti’s Restaurant awaits followed by a guided tour of the Reptile and Cheetah Conservation Centre. Around midday we depart the game lodge and have 2 options for our return leg back to Cape Town: We can either head down to the coast at Cape Agulhas, the southern most tip on the African continent where it is claimed the Indian & Atlantic Oceans meet.
alternatively visit the town of Hermanus, famous for having the best land-based whale watching in the world where we will have the opportunity to spot some of the Southern Right Whales that frequent Walker Bay (seasonal June - November) each year. Lunch (not included) can be enjoyed at one of many small restaurants in the area, after which we continue our journey home reaching Cape Town by late afternoon where you will be dropped off at your accommodation or airport.
