Day 1
You will be met at Johannesburg Airport and transferred to your hotel in this thriving city.
    
Check in and relax under warm blue South African skies in the city of gold.
Day 2
Today we leave Johannesburg and travel 5-hours through the historic towns of Dullstroom and Lydenburg. After passing through the Abel Erasmus Passand J.G.Strijdom Tunnel, we arrive at our private Mpumalanga Game Reserve.
 
After checking into your lodge, enjoy a thrilling game drive in an open-top game viewing vehicle accompanied by a lodge ranger. Game viewing opportunities should present themselves almost immediately and hopefully you will see several species of antelope, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe and maybe some of the Big Five today. Afterwards dine in the atmosphere that only the African bushveld can provide.
 
Note: On escorted group tours please note that for operational reasons it is sometimes necessary to substitute one hotel with another of similar quality.
Day 3
Enjoy an early morning bush walk or open top game drive in your Private Game Reserve this morning.
 
After breakfast we head out to explore the breathtaking Drakensberg Panorama Route - including the green Blyde River Canyon, the third largest in the world. See the Three Rondavels, enjoy wonderful views from God's Window and visit the unusual Bourkes Luck Pot Holes - cylindrical holes formed from the swirling waters of the Blyde and Treur Rivers.
 
In the afternoon check into your hotel in this beautiful region.
Day 4
This morning we enter the world famous Kruger National Park, unrivalled in its diversity of flora and fauna, for a thrilling morning of game viewing in our closed vehicle.
 
The vast Kruger plains offer magnificent game viewing opportunities and the highest concentration of lion in the whole of Africa. Hope to see several of the Big Five today - lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino. With nearly 150 different species of mammals and over 100 species of reptiles in the Kruger National Park, you can also hope to see cheetah, giraffe, hippo, kudu, crocodiles, sable antelope, waterbuck, warthogs, baboons, wild dogs and many other interesting animals. With over 500 different bird species including eagles, kingfishers, vultures and storks, outstanding bird watching is also guaranteed.
 
After a morning of game viewing, we exit the Kruger National Park and travel to Swaziland, a small mountain kingdom known for its lovely scenery, crafts and colourful indigenous culture. Check into your hotel in the late afternoon.
 
Note: You will need your passport to enter Swaziland.
Day 5
This morning we visit a Swazi Candle Factory. We also stop at a local Craft Market packed with woven baskets, crafts and colourful beadwork.
 
We then re-enter South Africa and travel into the kingdom of Zululand, where the ancient traditions and modern cultures have combined to form a vibrant society.
 
We continue to the small town of St Lucia. Situated inside the Isimangaliso Wetlands, this whole area has been declared a RAMSAR Wetland of international significance because of its great biodiversity and importance as a breeding site for waterbirds. Over 520 different species have been recorded in this vast wetland that is surrounded by mangrove swamps and dense reed beds, with birds ranging from permanent residents to tropical and altitudinal migrants, regional nomads and long-distance migrants. These include a variety of storks, pelicans, flamingos, kingfishers, spoonbills, fish eagles, gulls, herons, terns, ducks and geese.

Later in the morning experience a boat ride on the Lake St Lucia estuary, where you may see hippo, buffalo and crocodiles as well as abundant bird life.
