Cape Town Safaris

Only a 2-hour drive from the city, your Cape Town safari can either be a day trip or overnight venture. Private game reserves are situated in the Klein Karoo and Montague, boasting beautiful African landscapes, with 4-and 5-star safari lodge options. Staying slightly longer may allow you to maximize your Cape Town safari experience giving you more time to traipse the landscape with expert guides in search of African wildlife. The game reserves in close proximity to Cape Town are by no means as populated or superior as the game reserves up country, but they still offer a great Big 5 Cape Town safari experience with a selection of African wildlife roaming freely in the reserves.

In addition to 4×4 game drives and guided walking safari’s on a Cape Town safari, there is an overwhelming host of other activities to enjoy. Hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, quad biking are but a hand-full of adventures waiting for outdoor enthusiasts. With close proximity to the multi-cultural Mother City, extravagant wildlife, and luxurious accommodation, we recommend including a Big 5 Cape Town Safari in your travel itinerary to travellers with limited time to venture up country.
