South Africa 18 Day Accommodated


South Africa 18 Day Accommodated


Heading north from Johannesburg - "The City of Gold", like many intrepid explorers have done before us, our journey takes us through the outskirts of the capital - Pretoria, and then out into the vast open plains of Africa. Lunch today will be in the historic gold mining village of Haenertsburg. After lunch we descend into the Magoebaskloof, a spectacular lush mountainous area presided over by the Rain Queen - Modjadi. The last stretch of our journey today takes us into the Greater Kruger - world renowned for its protected natural environment and vast free-ranging animal populations. For the next two nights we get cosy at our well-appointed Bush Lodge, situated in a private reserve within the greater Kruger - where animals roam freely and unrestricted. This privately owned reserve allows us the freedom to explore the wilderness in open game drive vehicles in search of a variety of animals, both during the day and into the evening. The lodge casually blends into the bush and offers crisp comfortable beds and stunning views over the surrounding wilderness, including a water hole regularly frequented by animals. Retire to bed whilst listening to a symphony of sounds from the African Bush. Meals: D (Lunch own expense) Distance: 530 Km Accommodation: Bush Lodge - twin-bedded units Included Highlights/Activity: o Scenic drive down to the Lowveld region o Private Game Reserve Accommodation Optional Activities: o None, all included


After a peaceful night's rest we start the day with an early riser light breakfast of fresh coffee and rusks (a traditional South African biscuit), before embarking on our morning experience within the wild African bush. Guided by a qualified ranger we explore the wilderness, with heightened senses, always on the lookout for an animal encounter while also discovering the smaller treasures often hidden from the eye. Before the heat of the day sets in, we return to the lodge for a scrumptious brunch, after which it's time to relax around the lodge and enjoy the serenity of the surrounding wilderness. A nearby waterhole attracts a variety of birds and wildlife that come to quench their thirst, displaying the pecking order ever so present. Unwind with a refreshing drink while game viewing from the deck. With the heat subsiding in the late afternoon we embark on an open vehicle game drive which develops into an extensive night drive - in search of the nocturnal animals that come out after dark. As dusk approaches we pull over and enjoy a sun-downer drink or two, whilst marvelling at the magnificent sun setting over the African bushveld. Meals: Brunch, D Distance: Game Drive Accommodation: Bush Lodge - twin-bedded tented units Included Highlights/Activity: o Exclusive Private Reserve o Morning and afternoon guided experience in Big 5 area Optional Activities: o None, all included


Rising with the African sun, a hearty breakfast is enjoyed before setting off to climb the escarpment and explore the many natural wonders and viewing points in this incredibly scenic region. First stop will be to view the impressive Blyde River Canyon - the world's largest "Green Canyon". After viewing the Canyon we continue on to visit the museum town of Pilgrim's Rest where we enjoy a walk down through the main street whilst reliving the days of the early gold rush. Today's lunch will be at your own expense at a venue literally on the edge of the escarpment and offering the most incredible views over the entire Lowveld. Mid-afternoon we make our way down to the tranquil Greenfire Lodge Hazyview, a log cabin built spectacularly on stilts in the indigenous forest on the banks of the impressive Sabie River or "Fearful River" as dubbed by the locals. As well as a natural paradise this is also a working farm where coffee, limes and macadamias are produced and we will take the time to tour the workings on the property.

From the high vantage point and comfort of our well-equipped vehicle the view is excellent. Our expert guide will take time to explain the behaviour of the many animals we see in this fascinating environment. Most of the day will be spent game viewing, however, we will stop regularly at various designated sites to stretch our legs and also to enjoy an own-expense lunch at one of the rest camps in the Park.

Today we follow winding roads south through the Swazi countryside, before crossing back into South Africa. After completing the border formalities, we enter Zululand, a part of modern-day KwaZulu-Natal, and home to South Africa's largest ethnic group - the Zulu people. Formed in the early 1800's into the most powerful regional empire by King Shaka Zulu, the Zulus influenced a large part of southern Africa. Once back in South Africa our journey continues to the bustling coastal town of St Lucia where we spend the next two nights. St Lucia itself is home to many animals including Hippo, Crocodile and bird species. During our stay in St Lucia we will also visit the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, a Subtropical Coastal habitat with white beaches, tidal pools, offshore reefs and coastal dune forest. This unique combination of coastal reserve and Wetland Park offers an absolutely unique experience, where we drive through the park viewing rhino, buffalo and a multitude of other large animals, before going for a walk on a deserted beach where at any time you can take a dip in the warm Indian Ocean. The day is spent exploring the beach, rock pools, pristine dune forest and other natural habitats of this amazing Park. During the evenings we enjoy our dinners at one of the many local restaurants (own-expense). Beware of the wandering hippos that also visit town at night for a bite to eat.

Setting off early, we pass through several small towns and follow beautiful roads towards one of the most exciting, truly off-the-beaten-track highlights of the tour - The Wild Coast. Having formerly been an independent homeland, there has been little development in this area, resulting in endless unspoiled beaches, natural estuaries, rolling grassland, and a tapestry of traditional Xhosa villages. We spend two nights on the Wild Coast at Coffee Bay allowing us a full day for hiking and exploring this rugged but stunningly beautiful area. The highlight of our stay will be a walk along the high cliffs, deserted beaches and rolling grasslands, to what is one the most impressive landmarks along the South African coastline - Hole in the Wall. Hole in the Wall is an island, just offshore with a natural arch carved by centuries of wave-action. The adventurous can swim out for a closer look.

We spend a few hours in search of animals, and to take in the spectacular views, before returning to the hotel for a sumptuous breakfast. Once packed, we depart Cradock and head for the renowned Addo Elephant Park where elephants, buffalo and other animals can be viewed at close range in another unique environment, the succulant shrubs of the rhenosterveld.
