Cape Town safari day trips
Your options for safari day trips from Cape Town are:
Aquila Game Reserve is Cape Town's closest private Game Reserve which involves a drive on the N1 national road, through the Hex River Valley. There is a morning game drive in an open-air landrover, where you may see rhino, lion, giraffe, zebra, black wildebeest, klipspringer, duiker, greybuck, ostrich, and baboons. There are visits to several bushman rock art sites dating back thousands of years. We strongly recommend the unique opportunity for viewing game on a horse safari.
The Inverdoorn Game Reserve is situated in the Ceres part of the Karoo, a 2.5 hours drive from Cape Town. Stay at one of the chalets and explore Inverdoorn's 10,000 hectares on safari drives, where you may see white rhinos, giraffe, lions, cheetahs, blue wildebeest, springbok, kudu, lechwe, nyala, oryx, zebra, sable antelope and 165 species of birds.
At Kagga Kamma you can stay at the Bushman Lodge or the Outcrop Open-Air Camp. It was once home to Bushmen, and some of their cave paintings are visible on the rocks (some dating back 6,000 years). Kagaa Kama offers majestic mountains, strange rock formations and phenomenal night skies.
