For many visitors, a Kruger Park safari is the ultimate South African drawcard. Who wouldn’t want an authentic Big 5 wildlife experience that ranks among the best in Africa?
However, while the Kruger Park is undoubtedly our country’s undisputed gem, if you have travelled from afar to reach Southern Africa, there is plenty to explore while you are here. South Africa’s diverse attractions and easy logistics mean that you can go from the bush to the beach in under a day.
Here are our top three experiences to combine with a Kruger Park safari:
From the Big Five to Table Mountain
No visit to South Africa is complete without experiencing Cape Town, one of the most desirable destinations on the planet. End-off your Kruger Park safari with an exploration of South Africa’s iconic Mother City and discover unique culture and history, breathtaking nature, shopping and fine dining, excellent wines and luxurious accommodations.
From the majestic sweep of Table Mountain and the white beaches of the peninsula to the legendary Winelands, Cape Town is a feast for the senses.
Kruger to the Cape: Experience the perfect balance of wildlife, culture and seaside charm on this 7-night Kruger Park safari, which takes you from the bushveld, through Johannesburg, and ends off with sightseeing and leisure in the cosmopolitan city of Cape Town.
Add Vic Falls to Your Bucket List
With Victoria Falls only a two-hour flight from Johannesburg, why not bookend your Kruger Park safari with a fly-in tour and discover one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World?
Known locally as Mosi-Oa-Tunya (the smoke that thunders) Victoria Falls has been one of Africa’s premier destinations for world travellers for more than a century and evokes all the romance and awe of the Livingstone era.

Stretching along the southern coast of South Africa, the Garden Route is a holiday paradise that spans from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth.
