Event Details

Explore the beauty of South Africa and tick seeing the Big Five off your bucket list, with our 10-night tour to Johannesburg, Cape Town & Kruger National Park, escorted by Sir Graham & Lady Raewyn Henry.

As well as enjoying two international rugby matches in Johannesburg on 31 August and Cape Town on 7 September, we’ll spend four nights staying at Kapama Private Game Reserve in Kruger National Park, one of Africa’s largest game reserves.

Experience early morning and early evening game drives – the best times for spotting the Big Five; lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalos. Spend the remainder of your days at the luxurious lodge relaxing by one of the three swimming pools, enjoying a spa treatment, or taking a guided bush walk.

Our tour includes 10 nights’ 5-star accommodation, daily breakfasts throughout, internal flights between Johannesburg, Hoedspruit and Cape Town, twice-daily game drives, all-inclusive meals and beverages at Kapama, Official Tickets to two international rugby matches, and more.
