No 4. Rejuvenate and Roar in South Africa – 4 nights in Cape Town and 4 nights in the Madikwe Game Reserve
Let go of routine and indulge in the luxurious surrounding of South Africa. Cape Town is the quintessential melting pot of culture, a city alive with creativity, colour, and flare. Falling in love with the city’s natural beauty, creative freedom and existential spirit are almost inevitable. The Madikwe Game Reserve, in the North-West, is currently the fifth largest game reserve and one of the lesser- known game parks in South Africa. This means that it acquires “hidden treasure” status as it is regarded as one of the best conservation areas in Africa and offers Big-5 safari in a 750 km2 park. This 8 night/ 9 day adventure will both relax and excite as you experience 5 star luxury as well as some of South Africa’s finest game viewing.
