Day 1 Safari Club, Johannesburg

On arrival in Johannesburg, you will be met and transferred to your accommodation and early evening meet the guide and the rest of the group.

Day 2 Graskop Hotel, Mpumalanga

Leaving the city, we head east to a landscape characterised by panoramic passes and valleys, mountains and rivers, waterfalls and forests. We spend the night in the town of Graskop, a small forestry town situated on the Drakensberg Escarpment at the start of the Panorama route and the gateway to the Kruger National Park.

Days 3&4 Berg en Dal Camp, Kruger National Park

A scenic drive along the Panorama Route, arguably one of the most beautiful destinations in South Africa and a spectacular stretch is Blyde River Canyon, filled with lush vegetation and wildlife continuing onward to Bourke’s Luck Potholes to view these spectacular rock formations, formed eons ago by erosion. We continue to Kruger National Park, our base for two nights inside the park where we enjoy game drives to search for some of the many game found here including the Big 5.

Days 5&6 Mlilwane Rest Camp, Kingdom of Swaziland

Today takes us across the border into the mountainous kingdom of Swaziland, led by King Mswati III, and one of 3 monarchies in Africa. Find out about the traditions and discover the culture of which the Swazis are so proud where we visit the Chiefs Homestead along with inter–active experience to grind maize, or join the kids in singing/dancing and try local food. We spend two nights in the Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary, part of Big Game Parks, Swaziland’s pioneer conservation area situated in the “Valley of Heaven”. Join a guided walk in the afternoon and watch out for game and the abundant bird life.

Days 7&8 Ezulwini Game Lodge or similar, Zululand, South Africa

We re–enter South Africa and make our way to the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, South Africa’s first World Heritage Site and join a boat cruise on the St. Lucia Estuary, getting up close to the hippos and crocodiles that inhabit the lake. The following day we explore the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve, on a game drive in our vehicle. Hluhluwe–Imfolozi is the oldest game reserve in Africa and is a safe haven to both the endangered black and white rhino.

Today we head to a private reserve in 3000ha of private mountain reserve, adjacent to the Royal Natal National Park – part of another World Heritage Site, namely the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park. The main features of the park are the Drakensberg Amphitheatre, a rock wall 5km long by up to 1200m high, Mont–Aux–Sources peak where the Orange and Tugela Rivers have their source, and the 947m Tugela Falls, the world’s second highest waterfall and we enjoy this scenic area on guided walks.

Days 11&12 Malealea Lodge, Lesotho

Today takes us to the Kingdom of Lesotho, the southern–most landlocked country in the world, rich in natural beauty, flora, fauna and cultural heritage. Malealea is situated in a remote part of Western Lesotho that is breath–taking in its beauty and to experience traditional Basotho life, a nation with solid traditions, beliefs and customs. Lesotho is famous for its pony trekking and the next day we take a ride, as these sturdy and sure–footed animals traverse the trails.

How we rate our safaris

Namibia, Botswana and some other African destinations do not have a set star system that is familiar worldwide to many countries, however, as this is widely used, we have tried to replicate this format to give you an idea of the level of comfort during your safari. For example, a mobile camping tour in Namibia is given 1* and luxury accommodation increasing to 5*. Depending on your tour, there may be a bit of a mix of levels of comfort so please check if you are not sure.

1* or 1–2* Rated Safaris – Camping tours:

These are generally scheduled/small group or self–drive safaris (though a private–guided safari can also fall into this category if you wish to camp); the scheduled trips generally involve client participation where you may be expected to put up/take down your tent and assist with camp chores, dome tents and a ground mattress is supplied. For self–drive options this will often mean roof tents on the vehicle and all camping equipment. There may be the occasional night in simple accommodation but majority of nights are spent camping and most camp sites will have shared ablution facilities. If there is a good mix of both camping and accommodation, this may be rated at 1&2*. These are the most basic level of safaris offered and scheduled safari group sizes vary according to the trip and company – 1* tours are the most affordable option and geared for adventurous travellers who do not mind a bit of discomfort.

Accommodated Safaris

Standard/Mid–range safaris 2–3.5*

Standard accommodation style trips generally have no camping included (though on occasion with a specific activity such as a Delta or Serengeti excursion, or perhaps hiking, a couple of nights may be included). As a general rule this is not the case. With most small group/scheduled tours accommodation is generally 2/3* level – clean and affordable but generally without too many frills; rooms will have en–suite facilities, most will offer air con/fans in the rooms, swimming pools etc (not guaranteed), restaurant/bar facilities, though location can be a little further away from main place of interest this option offers excellent value for money for those seeking a bed each night! We try to indicate on each trip the level of comfort for the particular tour

Superior/Luxury Safaris 3.5–5*

A superior style of accommodation. Most lodges at this level will have air–conditioning or fans in the room though some accommodation establishments are technically “camps” as they may be partially build of canvas – these “camps” are permanent fixtures, generally built on a platform, and will have full and comfortable facilities – the occasional trip may have a more basic night or two involved depending on location to ensure clients can fully appreciate the region they are experiencing. Service is generally very good and most places (outside of towns/cities) will have just a few rooms/chalets. Tours in this bracket include very small group safaris (up to 8 clients), self–drive and private–guided options which are tailored to suit you. The luxury options offer a high standard of accommodation, facilities and service in the region with attention to detail – some “camps” /lodges will have private guides and vehicles, but all accommodation is the best available with personalized service and a quality or unique experience perhaps unavailable elsewhere or in a more moderate price bracket. Tours include fly–in safaris, self–drive and private–guided options.

Please note: this is a guideline only and each destination can vary – some areas in Southern Africa do not always have 5* accommodation (there are limited hotels outside of cities that have the same * grading accommodation) but will be best in the area, have limited volume of rooms and some of the best locations and experiences for clients that is outside of the normal “tourist/travel” route. This can include exclusive conservation regions and emphasis is place on clients having a unique experience rather than offering hairdresser type of facilities that may be found is hotels in cities in other countries. Please also remember that some of these locations can be remote so wifi may not always be available, nor a huge menu range.
