My vision for this trip is to depart Egypt in the north of Africa and head to the southern most part of Africa, linking with the cosmic pathways as we go. Our time in South Africa is to create a balance within ourselves and all around us. I feel it will be a special experience post Egypt. For those who have the time to be part of this journey, I am certain the continued energetic integration will be very worthwhile.
We start with 5 nights at Rhulani Game Lodge which comes highly recommended by several members of my family who went there 4 years ago. There was a cheaper option I was looking at in the area but my heart simply pulled me to Rhulani. Here we will experience daily safari outings and the opportunity to rest in land surrounded by flora and fauna, African suns, dusky nights, big skies and earthy vibes. It will be getting into rainy season (although drought has been present for a while) so not premium animal viewing time however I am sure it will all be perfectly magical and baby animals may be in the mix at this time of year.
Next we head to Cape Town where we are staying for 3 nights at a fabulous looking place in superior ocean view rooms in Bakoven. Bakoven is a residential suburb on the west coast of the Cape Peninsula, south of Camps Bay. It is the last suburb out of Cape Town on Victoria Road positioned between Camps Bay and the wild Nature Reserve .Check it out here Ocean View House it's about 15-18 mins drive from the city hub of Cape Town. I have selected to stay in the ocean area as I know this will be important for us. During our time in Cape Town we will do 2 tours in the area including the city of course.
For those of you who may want to spend longer in Cape Town and perhaps right in town, that is an option you can easily explore for yourselves.

Re getting there etc
So we depart Egypt on 27 Nov after our Assimilation Retreat finishes and our flight to Johannesburg will most likely have us arriving in Johannesburg on 28th Nov. From here we will be collected by the Rhulani Safari Lodge people for the 4-4.5 hour drive (I know!) to Madikwe Game Reserve. There are 45 min flights from Johannesburg to near Rhulani which we can consider once the airlines open up their 2020 schedules. We will also need to book a Johannesburg to Capetown flight which isn't in the tour cost. Flight schedules for this leg (nor Egypt 2020) aren't open yet.
