This popular excursion out of Cape Town allows you to experience Africa’s wildlife on African soil without having to travel many days to the Kruger National Park. Around 350 years ago the animals that you will see all roamed the region of the Western Cape in large numbers, Cape Buffalo, Elephant, Cape Lion alas they were hunted to extinction in the region. There are a number of Private Game Reserves within a few hours drive of Cape Town that are re-introducing these animals back into what was their natural environment, it is a work in progress that is enjoying much success. If you have limited time and want to experience African wildlife then this is a great choice!
