Abbreviation: [B,L,D] Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
‘Welkom’ to Johannesburg! This city is the largest in South Africa, founded in 1886 on one of the richest gold reefs in the world. Meet your fellow travellers tonight for a welcome drink.
We explore Soweto, abuzz with energy and setting trends in politics, fashion, music, dance and language. We also visit the Apartheid Museum and the former houses of Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi today. This evening we’ll get to know our fellow travellers at a traditional African group welcome dinner. [B,D]
This morning we depart for Dullstroom. The afternoon is free for you to enjoy at leisure. Why not visit the ‘Wild about Whisky’ bar and famous clock shop? [B,D]
Today we venture into Greater Kruger National Park, offering some of the best game viewing on the African continent.
Special Experience: En route visit Hdspruit Endangered Species Centre, which focuses on the conservation of rare, vulnerable and endangered animals.
After a quick refreshment at the lodge, we’ll head out on our first game drive! [B,D]
Our day is devoted to viewing the abundant wildlife found in this park, including the ‘Big 5’ - elephants, lions, leopards, buffals and rhinos - on morning and afternoon game drives in open safari vehicles. Kruger National Park stretches for about 350 kilometres and our expert guides should increase our chances of seeing as many wild species as we can. [B,L,D]
Heading south to Hazyview, we travel along the stunning Panorama Route.
We will make stops along the way and walk to waterfalls and scenic viewing points, including Bourkes Luck Potholes, Lisbon Falls and Wanderview. [B,D]
Special Experience: Visit the Jane Goodall Chimpanzee Eden Sanctuary. Established in 2006, it cares for and rehabilitates chimpanzees rescued after being displaced from their natural habitat.
This afternoon we cross the border into the Kingdom of eSwatini. Formerly known as Swaziland, eSwatini is one of the most diminutive countries, and the last absolute monarchy in Africa. Although small, it is packed with a rich and vibrant culture, striking scenery and of course, lots of incredible wildlife! [B,D]
After breakfast we make our way to South Africa’s coastal province of KwaZulu-Natal. This afternoon we’ll visit the Emdoneni Cat Rehabilitation Centre, where injured or orphaned big cat species are rehabilitated with the intention of being released back into the wild. [B,L,D]
We travel to Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park, the oldest proclaimed reserve in Africa, with rolling hills and magnificent wildlife. Once inside the reserve we meet our game ranger and enjoy a 4WD safari in the park on a morning game drive. Keep a look out for the 'Big 5'! This afternoon we’ll visit DumaZulu, a traditional Zulu village, and enjoy a cultural experience. [B,L,D]
We begin the day discovering St Lucia Estuary by boat, looking out for elephants, crocodiles and hippos. We’ll then continue to Durban via the Valley of 1,000 Hills. [B]
This morning we explore Durban, South Africa's busiest port. Our city tour this morning visits the Golden Mile, a popular stretch of beachfront and promenade. We'll explore the aromatic Indian Spice Markets before continuing to the Moses Mabhida Stadium & Sky Car. Here we journey up a 106-metre viewing platform for spectacular views across the city. Tonight we’ll enjoy a group farewell dinner. [B,D]
