Your base is the Steenberg Hotel, a 30-minute drive from the city on an exclusive golf estate in the Constantia Winelands. Table Mountain, Boulders Beach penguin colony and Cape Point all lie within easy reach and depending on the time of year, you can go whale-watching, shark-cage diving and hiking too.

Days 5 – 7: A Room with a View – Knysna

Self-drive your way along the Garden Route to the town of Knysna. Check in at Kanonkop House overlooking the lagoon. Enjoy 3 nights on a bed & breakfast basis.

It’s a fairly long drive today but the scenery doesn’t disappoint. Once you reach the coast, long sandy beaches flanked by forested mountains announce the appearance of the much-loved Garden Route. Make your way to the town of Knysna and your accommodation – Kanonkop House, a clean-lined, hill-top guesthouse with the best views in town. Activities in the area range from golf, water-skiing and mountain biking to canoe and hiking trails, elephant encounters and marine tours. There are plenty of local restaurants to choose from and your hosts will help you plan it all.

Days 8 – 10: A Private Affair – Plettenberg Bay

A short drive from Knysna takes you to Plettenberg Bay, a sporting playground and home to some of the best beaches in South Africa. You’ll be based at Kurland, a family owned and managed country house set on a private polo estate. Facilities include a spa, restaurant, pool and gym; the leafy rural surroundings make an idyllic backdrop for golf, tennis, quad biking and horse riding. Home to a gorgeous honeymoon suite and offering plenty of privacy, Kurland is also very family-friendly and offers child-minders, a children’s pool and games room.

Days 11 – 14: A Big 5 safari

Your destination is Savanna Lodge in the Sabi Sands Reserve, a set of private game reserves adjoining the Kruger. With 3 full days to look forward to, you’ll enjoy exclusive sightings of the Big 5 – lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo – as well as expert guiding and extra activities such as night drives and nature walks. Families with children aged 8 and over are welcome at the lodge; the 4-sleeper Savanna Suite makes ideal accommodation and comes with its own vehicle and guide.

Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately…… evasive tactics, always head-on!

Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.

It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!
