Cape to Kruger Tours and Safaris is a South African tour operator striving to ensure that your
experience of the African bushveld will be unforgettable.
From safari tours in the Kruger National Park to day tours in the vibrant cities of Cape Town and Johannesburg - we have it all!
“Africa – you can see a sunset and believe you have witnessed the hand of God. You watch the slope of a lioness and forget to breathe. You marvel at the tripod of a giraffe bent to water. In Africa, there are iridescent blues on the wings of birds that you do not see anywhere else in nature. In Africa, in the midday heat, you can see blisters in the atmosphere. When you are in Africa, you feel primordial, rocked in the cradle of the world.” - Jodi Picoult
Here at Cape to Kruger Tours and Safaris we strive to ensure that your experience of the African bushveld is no less than unforgettable; a memory to take back home to be cherished. We aim to achieve this by getting you up close and personal with southern Africa's eclectic array of both plant and animal species, untamed and uncensored in their natural habitat. From the baobab tree to the Big Five, strap in for the journey of a lifetime; an adventure rich in both adrenalin and education. Boasting vast savannas and sprawling bushveld, southern Africa is a region demanding to be explored, and for the more “daring” brand of traveler, a safari tour is the way to do it! Nothing quite compares to the private thrill one experiences when subjected to a pride of lions after the kill, or the awe (some would even go so far as to say “reverence”) when presented with the sheer size and majesty of the African elephant. Soak in the last rays of one of Africa's famously blood-red sunsets, and behold the infinite scatter of stars after dark. These unique sights occur nowhere else on earth but within the heart of the bush, and to witness nature in her most raw form will leave you with greater respect for the circle of life.
From safari tours in the Kruger National Park to day tours in the vibrant cities of Johannesburg and Cape Town - we've got it all! Experience the excitement of an African safari in the bush, or the pumping nightlife of Jo'burg if urban exploration is more up your alley. If you take a particular interest in marine wildlife (and you aren't faint of heart!), we offer shark cage diving as an activity on our Cape Town tours, as well as scenic trips up misty Table Mountain.
Collecting you from your accommodation in Johannesburg (or O.R Tambo International Airport), our comfortable air-conditioned vehicles will take you to wherever it is you're going! Depending on your choice of tour, your journey will take you through the Highveld and the rolling hills of the misty Lowveld, making quick but impactful stops to view waterfalls hidden along the mountain roads and other places of aesthetic or historical interest.
Different lodges offer varying accommodation – from comfortable en suite chalets to rustic canvas tents on the ground and treehouses nestled high in the canopy. Some tours even provide guests with the option to sleep out beneath the stars! Surely there is no other way to fully experience the bush than to press one's ear to the rich earth and be lulled by the soothing sounds of nocturnal activity?
Wine and dine on traditional South African cuisine (all Halaal, of course), and share tales of your safari exploits around the campfire; the taste of local flavour still lingering on your tongue.
Our tours offer various activities that guests are able to choose from – from sunset to sunrise, you will be taken on game drives in our signature open vehicles (the lack of windows allows for a uniquely intimate encounter with the inhabitants of the African wild). In the case that you decide a game drive isn't thrilling enough, we highly recommend embarking on a bush walk led by an armed ranger. They say humankind originated in Africa, and to walk the untouched, rugged path of our common Paleolithic ancestors will leave you feeling more in tune with yourself and the world around you than ever before.
Cape to Kruger Tours and Safaris offers not only wildlife safaris into the Kruger National Park and other private reserves, but tours of Cape Town's coast and inner-city hustle or a visit to the Cradle of Humankind.
Our qualified tour guides' main objective is to ensure that our guests' stay is fun, fascinating and memorable. Our guides know the bush like the back of their hand, and will share their extensive knowledge with you if you ask! Each guide has undertaken the proper training in order to equip them with the specialized skills required to lead you on your journey, and most importantly the respect for the unpredictability of the wild. At the end of your trip, you are guaranteed to walk away from the experience with an enhanced knowledge of animal behavior, plant life, wildlife conservation efforts, as well as an expanded understanding of the social and cultural aspects of southern Africa.
Our dedicated staff is determined to facilitate your comfort and enjoyment – the quality of your stay is of the utmost importance to us. We pride ourselves in offering only the best tours and safari adventures through reputable and licensed tour providers, emphasizing the legitimacy of your experience. Forgoing the above mentions of “adrenalin” and “thrill”, we want to reaffirm that your safety is our priority and that you are in good hands! We aim to promote fun and excitement for the whole family – children are welcome.
We offer a range of tours specifically chosen to fit your price range. Whether you are the discerning traveller seeking 5-star luxury, or the budget-oriented individual interested in the more economical option – we guarantee we have what you're looking for.
