DELRAY BEACH, FL, May 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A South African escape provides the perfect combination of cosmopolitan brilliance with exotic wilderness, and there has never been a better opportunity to embark on the most unforgettable journey of your lifetime. Lion World Travel is offering a special "Classic South Africa" safari starting at only $2,999 - an incredible value that even includes airfare.
This 10-day safari captures the ultimate South African experiences with generous time in both Cape Town and the Pilanesberg National Park. Cape Town's climate, culture and beauty are legendary, particularly Table Mountain's panoramic city views and the dramatic cliffs of the Cape Peninsula. Enjoy four leisurely days exploring Cape Town's scenic and cultural attractions before heading to one of the country's premier wildlife havens.
The Pilanesberg Game Reserve is celebrated for its colorful hues, varied habitats and delightful inhabitants. Thickly forested ravines, rolling grasslands and lightly wooded areas create a feast for the eyes in this remarkable wildlife kingdom. Pilanesberg accommodates virtually every South African mammal, including the "Big Five" - lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo - and with both morning and late afternoon game drives, you are sure to witness the abundance of thriving wildlife in this 360 square miles of diverse bushveld terrain. A wide variety of rare species coexist with endemic species, like the majestic sable, as well as those more commonly found throughout South Africa.
This "Classic South Africa" safari is on special for a limited time. Prices start from $2,999, including flights from Los Angeles, New York, and Washington, D.C. Prices start from CAD $3,499 per person for departures from Toronto to New York or Washington, D.C.
This price includes international flights; South Africa domestic flights; all services, transfers, accommodations and 14 meals; sight-seeing by English-speaking guides; game drives; the services of Rangers and Trackers; and a Lion World Travel Representative Meet and Greet upon arrival.
In recognition of our single travelers, the Single Supplement has been waived for limited space on each departure. "Classic South Africa" is valid on the following dates in 2014: August 28 and 30; September 4, 9, 13, 19 and 24; and October 2, 9, 16 and 23.
