    1. Day 1 Arrival at O.R Tambo

      Direct flight with international flight to Johannesburg. Stay overnight in Pretoria.

    2. Day 2 Hazyview - 375 KM

      Today a visit to Pretoria (Union Buildings, Church Square &, if desired, Voortrekker Monument), after which the longest ride on this journey, then we had it right away …

    3. Day 3-4 Hoedspruit

      We drive the famous Panorama route (excursion package) along Blyde River Canyon, with the Three Rondavels, waterfalls, beautiful views (God’s Window) and spectacular rock formations in Bourkes Luck Potholes.
      We can enjoy the late afternoon of the private nature park where we stay. Perhaps you can still spot game from your own terrace!
      We visit Moholoholo (excursion package). It is known from National Geographic, a unique project where animals are collected, to be able to return to nature aftercare. Here you can learn a lot about the nature of South Africa and wildlife. One of the projects that the Afrikaya Trust supports! In the afternoon we can return to the nature reserve for a nice nature walk or go swimming at a waterfall and/or visit the Blyde River Dam.

    4. Day 5-6 Komatipoort

      We drive for a first exploration through the world famous Kruger National Park and make a game drive (safari) until the afternoon with our own car/bus (excursion package). In the afternoon we arrive in Komatipoort. The bar overlooking the river, where hippos and crocodiles live, is a wonderful place to quietly drink a beer and chat. The next day we get up very early to make a game drive (safari) with an open 4 × 4 (excursion package) all day. In the evening we can discuss all the experiences again during the braai or a potjie.

    5. Day 7-8 Swaziland

      We drive to Swaziland and visit a  Swazi village, where music and dance are central (excursion package ). The Mlilwane Game Reserve is a paradise for nature lovers and peace seekers. In this game reserve, you can walk around freely, mountain bike or ride a horse and look for hippos, zebras and antelope species.
      We spend the night at the perhaps not super-luxurious but top-atmospheric Reilly’s Rock Hilltop Lodge, unique on group travel! We prefer to have breakfast outside on the terrace overlooking the park or in the evening around the campfire.

    6. Day 9-10 Pongola Game Reserve

      We stay in a luxury 5 * safari tent lodge in the small and malaria-free private reserve Pongola. The park encloses Lake Jozini, with the Lebombo mountains in the background. The reserve itself combines a landscape of mountains, bushveld and rivers with many animal species and a varied range of activities. During a safari, you can see rhino, elephant, giraffes, zebras, kudu, buffalo, hyena, leopard, hippos, crocodiles, 12 species of antelope and about 350 different bird species. The area is also popular with anglers (especially for catching Barbel and Tigerfish), but also Elephant or Black Rhino Tracking, a boat safari, canoe trips or a bush walk are possible.

    7. Day 11-12 St-Lucia

      We leave Swaziland and drive to Saint Lucia in Kwazulu-Natal, known by the adjacent iSimangaliso Wetland Park and the nearby Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve. The town looks a bit more like what we are used to, with shops, cafes and restaurants. With a bit of luck, you will hear the hippos growl during dinner…. We make a boat cruise (excursion package) to spot hippos, crocodiles and many bird species (including osprey and giant kingfisher). We visit Hluhluwe-Umfolozi National Park (excursion package) with an open 4×4. You can also enjoy walking along the beach or cycling through the nature reserve. In the season (July-December) you can also take a whale trip here.

    8. Day 13 Dolphin Coast

      We stay in Ballito in a beautiful lodge by the sea on the beautiful Dolphin Coast. We visit Durban with the Victoria Market and Golden Mile, the Moses Madhiba Stadium and/or the botanical gardens.

    Information about the accommodations:

      You stay at special and small-scale 4 * and 5 * accommodations in beautiful locations, almost always with swimming pool & air conditioning, a few examples: Unembeza Boutique Hotel – Ecolux Boutique Hotel – Reilly’s Rock Hilltop Lodge – White Elephant Safari Lodge. Accommodations are carefully selected for location, atmosphere, service, and hygiene. A more spacious room, a good bed, and an extensive breakfast are things that we pay extra attention to so that you can enjoy more in every place.

    You always have your own bathroom and toilet. Because we guide our journeys ourselves, we also quickly notice if something is decreasing and the accommodation is replaced by a better option. You travel in our own comfortable Mercedes Sprinter, equipped with air conditioning and a fridge, among other things. For overlapping trips or small groups, we use other suitable transport, always with air conditioning.

    Don’t have enough time, too much work and too little time. Well, if that is so and you love nature this tour is the perfect start!

    You have to be crazy about adventure tours to build a theme that displays the tours so elegantly that a person browsing the tours on site literally falls in love with place even before booking the tour.
