A Trip to Cape Town and Singita
As South Africa’s reputation as a safari destination in Africa grows, more and more of her visitors want to experience all sides of her beauty; the cities and nature, the ocean and wildlife, her cultures and her natural surroundings. One of the best ways to experience all South Africa has to offer is by combining a trip to Cape Town and Singita. Let us tell you how.
The Logistics of a trip to Cape Town and Singita
if you were to do Cape Town first, then on arrival at Cape Town International Airport, you will transfer to your hotel of choice – luxury, boutique, beachside or city, which will take approximately 20 minutes
Cape Town is one of the most beautiful, diverse and vibrant cities in the world, home to world-famous attractions including Table Mountain and Robben Island. Spend the day on beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay and head in to the city at night, to experience the buzz of Long Street After Dark
There is no shortage of things to do in Cape Town and your time here is sure to fly by!
Your next flight will take you directly from Cape Town to Skukuza, Hoedpsruit Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport, where you will then be transferred by road to your lodge of choice at Singita Private Reserve.
After a few days exploring the wilderness of the Greater Kruger Area and hopefully spotting the Big 5, the short trip back to Johannesburg can be made via light aircraft – which can drop directly into one of the bush airstrips close to the lodge for a hassle-free journey – or the longer drive (about 6 hours) can be made by road. This then lands you back at O.R. Tambo International, from where you can easily take a flight to your home country.
Why take a trip to Cape Town and Singita?
A trip to Cape Town and Singita combines two of Southern Africa’s major attractions – Cape Town and the greater Kruger National Park – offering guests a well-rounded and uncomplicated experience of all South Africa has to offer.
A visit to a private reserve has many advantages over staying in the public camps of the Kruger National Park; vehicles are open topped and have open sides, can often drive off road in search of wildlife (a definite no-no in the public areas), you can enjoy walking safaris, night drives, sleep outs and dinners in the bush under a canopy of stars. The private concessions are small, intimate and peaceful, and above all, you and a few other guests have exclusive access to the wonderful wildlife at Singita with no interruptions from other vehicles and visitors.
A simple combination of these two wonderful destinations works well for shorter efficient trips – If you are not rushed and have time to spend, we would suggest adding the Victoria Falls to your itinerary, and ticking 3 of Southern Africa’s major attractions off your bucket-list.
