Our Cape Wildflowers, Birding & Big Game safari is scheduled to take in the very best of the fairest Cape, at a time when the Cape Fynbos biome and Namaqualand spring flowers are at their peak. This wildflower display is one of the Mother Nature’s most colorful ceremonies and a once-in-a-lifetime event that no nature-lover should miss! Whilst we are in the region, we will also explore the Mother City, enjoy the breath-taking revolving cable-car trip to the top of Table Mountain, visit famous wine estates, revel at Southern Right Whales frolicking just off the coast, seek out-of-the-way endemic birds in the plains of Bushmanland, and safari in the famous Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park. Here the huge black-maned Kalahari Lions hunt Gemsbok and other big game, and chances for the seldom seen Brown Hyena are better than anywhere else.
