City of Gold and Safari in the Bush
6-day city break in South Africa

Where in the world can you combine a city-break with a real safari? In South Africa’s City of Gold and Safari in the Bush tour! Johannesburg has a vibe of its own and is the place where it all happens. Fashion, music, fine dining, unique experiences – this is the beating heart of South Africa and the place where the latest in fashion and art is exhibited in its many shops, ateliers and street art. Nicknamed the ‘City of Gold’ during the gold rush, it later became the epicentre of the struggle against apartheid.

Learn about this history, not just by visiting the Apartheid Museum, but through the eyes of the people of ‘Jozi’ when cycling through Soweto Township and talking with locals in Vilakhazi Street, the only road in the world where three Nobel Peace Prize winners lived – Mandela, Gandhi and Bishop Tutu.

Discover downtown Johannesburg during a street art tour and meet the hipsters of today in its many bars and restaurants. And why not stay in Gandhi’s old house, now a luxurious guesthouse that incorporates a museum about the great man’s time in South Africa.

Exchange the bustling city for the wild African bush. Madikwe Game Reserve is South Africa’s hidden gem when it comes to a safari experience. Here you will experience the true call of the wild. Wildlife is abundant, including the Big Five, but access is restricted so you’ll be almost alone with all the animals. An exclusive wildlife experience indeed! Between game drives, how about a relaxing and rejuvenating treatment in the lodges’ bush spa?

This 6-day city-break has it all. Come and enjoy the City of Gold & Safari in the Bush – a week never to forget!
