Sojourn to stunning views of the South African coastline and Table Mountain in Cape Town -- recently named the No. 1 Place to Go in 2014 according to The New York Times -- before observing the Big Five on a private game reserve. This six-night trip is available for $1899 per person including all taxes and fees.

Saving up to $550 per person compared with do-it-yourself pricing, this deal from Friendly Planet features:

  • Roundtrip airfare on South African Airways
  • Flights and transportation within South Africa
  • Six nights (four in Cape Town and two in a game reserve) at well-reviewed hotels
  • 10 meals: six breakfasts, two lunches and two dinners
  • Half-day city tour of Cape Town including a cable car ride up Table Mountain
  • Safaris: four game drives in a malaria-free zone
  • Services of an English-speaking guide and game rangers

The tour begins in Cape Town, where travelers can soak up the area's cultural diversity and ride a cable car to the top of Table Mountain. Then journey to the Entabeni Conservancy, which unlike other famous parks included in many South Africa vacations, is a private game reserve. The advantage is that expert rangers are not restricted by hours of operation and can conduct more game drives -- including at dawn and dusk, when the Big Five are most active.

Depart from New York on Sept. 17; +$100 Nov. 20, 25, 30; Dec. 9. Select May-November dates have also been discounted, starting at $2099. Washington, D.C., departures are available for $50 more per person. This is part of a larger sale that includes a 10-night South Africa tour.

Also available: Take the kids to South Africa on June 28, a special discounted family-friendly designated departure in which other families with children are encouraged to book.

Book by Feb. 26.
