Experience the traditional Big 5 Safari (Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Rhino and Buffalo) situated just two hours from Cape Town, followed by a second day of close encounters with the Great White Shark in its natural environment – with a high probability of viewing the Southern Right Whale nearby.
This is probably the only opportunity you will ever have to experience Africa’s “Big 7” in the wilderness, over such a short period of time.
Day 1: Cape Town – Big Five Game Reserve Safari Tour
Early morning pick-up and drive to a private Big 5 Safari game reserve just outside of Cape Town. Arrive to an African-style, full course buffet breakfast before heading out on a 2 to 3 hour 4×4 game drive with an experienced and knowledgeable ranger. Then enjoy a sumptuous lunch and relax around the pool, or take in the African bush atmosphere for the rest of the afternoon. Retire at the end of the day in a well-appointed, bush-style chalet under a canopy of spectacular stars.
Day 2: Shark Diving & Whale Viewing
Another early departure driving across the magnificent wheat fields of the Overberg, arriving at the bay with Africa’s most prolific Great White Shark encounters. Embark on our boat for a morning of shark diving and viewing near an island with a colony of over 40 000 Cape Fur Seals.
It’s a truly informative and educational experience in the interest of conserving this magnificent creature. On returning to Cape Town there is a high likelihood of viewing whales directly off the rocky cliffs of one of the worlds best land-base whale viewing points (season dependent) to complete an epic journey of discovery.
