Originally$3399 Now$2199 Saving36% Remaining20 Days

Take an exotic journey via world-class Emirates Airlines and experience a South Africa safari, plus a stopover in fascinating Dubai. Begin with a visit to the city of Johannesburg, the vibrant heart of South Africa. Explore attractions on your own or take advantage of optional activities. After two nights in Johannesburg, continue to the Dinokeng Private Game Reserve, the first free-roaming Big 5 game reserve in Gauteng – and probably in the world – next to an urbanized area. A private/public initiative for which planning and development started in the early 2000’s, the Reserve officially opened in September 2011 after the introduction of four of the Big 5. The last of the Big 5, the buffalo, were introduced in late 2012, and they have settled in well. Spend two nights at the Mongena Private Game Lodge, located in the malaria-free northwestern section of the Dinokeng Game Reserve. The tame zebras, nyalas and springbucks residing in the main camp delight all guests with their presence and have become a favorite trademark of Mongena. Fly to Dubai for a 3-night stopover. Half-day city tour is included. Starting from $2,199 per person, including air from multiple gateway cities, with guaranteed weekly departures. Book  by November 26, 2018.
