New York, NY - Extraordinary Journeys Africa, specialists in bespoke customized safaris to Africa, is offering an 8-day safari in honor of Cape Town’s Gay Pride Week that will take place February 27-March 4, 2012.
The first four nights are spent in Cape Town where guests will have the opportunity to see the exciting Gay Parade in action, attend the wildly elegant yet funky Pink Ball and experience all of the Gay Pride events this pulsing city has to offer including adventure activities, shopping and more!
For the last three nights, a flight from Cape Town to the Madikwe Game Reserve in the Sabi Sands will transport guests to a five star luxury lodge surrounded by fierce wildlife. This luxury safari is masterfully created to combine the urban city excitement of Cape Town with the rare wildlife viewing in Madikwe.

Cap off the fun and great celebration of Cape Town diversity with a flight to South Africa’s newest reserve to explore over 300 square miles of Madikwe, home to some of the continent’s highest concentrations of predators and rare game. Guests are assured the ultimate in personal service and style at the uber luxurious and sexy Jamala Madikwe Royal Safari Lodge.
