Prepare for a trip of epic proportions! From mountainous regions to vast plains and gorgeous beaches, this is one adventure where you’ll immerse yourself in Shangaan, Swazi and Zulu traditions and encounter Southern Africa at its very best. Ready to capture the magic of this diverse continent, one Instagram-worthy snap at a time?
Oh Africa, you amazing thing! This Kruger, Swazi and Beach adventure kicks off in pretty Pretoria. When you’ve introduced yourself to the crew, we’ll make our way to Hazyview – and on the way, we’ll check out the Panorama Route (epic views, anyone?). Tonight, we’ll toast our first night under the African stars with a group dinner. Campfire stories: optional.
Today we’re all about wild Kruger, which comes complete with photo ops to make your jaw drop. What’s in store? Why, an awesome day of game tracking in a 4x4, of course! With our eagle-eyed guide at the wheel, you’re sure to spot more than a few animals doing their thing. Tonight, there’s another delicious feast to look forward to back at camp. Oh – and you can even head out on an optional nighttime game drive if you fancy it!
Dig into breakfast, then it’s back to the park for our second day's game driving. Got your cameras and binoculars at the ready? Good! Now’s the time to try to spot the Big Five.
Today we’ll wave goodbye to Kruger and move on to the kingdom of Swaziland. Then: it’s on to Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary we go. Anyone for an optional sunset game drive, bird tour or culture tour? Or maybe a spot of optional mountain biking or horse riding would float your boat? So. Many. Options.
First up today, we’ll kick it to the Royal Enclosure for a guided walk. After browsing a few streetside markets and trying our hand at bartering with the stall owners, we'll find our way back to the sanctuary for lunch. Feeling active? Those awesome optionals from yesterday are here for you! Or, you could always take a little time out to catch some rays by the pool...
Next up: the coastal town of St Lucia. Get excited, ‘cos this afternoon we’re gonna hop on a boat cruise and get floaty on the river (don’t forget to keep an eye out for hippos, lazy crocodiles and a whole bunch of birds goofing around on the sandy banks). There are also a fair few optionals on offer if you’re interested. Take your pick from a night drive, a culture tour, a bike tour or a hike.
Today our trip will wrap up in Durban. Who’s up for round two?
