Day 1
You will be met at Johannesburg Airport by your guide, who will drive you 4.5-hours to Mpumalanga - "the place where the sun rises", driving eastwards through Witbank, before dropping several hundred feet into the subtropical Lowveld and the scenic Drakensberg Panorama Route.
 
Check in and relax in this region that is famous for its wildlife.
Day 2
This morning we visit a local Elephant Sanctuary to experience a very special close-up encounter, where for 1-hour you can interact with and feed one of these gentle giants.
 
Balance of day is free to relax at your lodge or explore more of the beautiful Panorama Route with your guide (pay any entrance fees locally).
 
Note: There are no accessible toilets at the Elephant Sanctuary.
Day 3
Today enjoy a scenic half day transfer through the green Blyde River Canyon - the third largest on earth. Enjoy wonderful views from Pinnacle Rock, Wonder View and the Three Rondavels lookout.
 
Afterwards we continue to Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre where you have the unique opportunity of viewing wild lion, leopard, cheetah, eagles and vultures at close quarters. Animals found injured, poisoned or orphaned are given a second chance and released back into the wild. Afterwards check into your lodge in this region famous for its wildlife.
 
Note: Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre is closed on Sundays.
Day 4
Today we enter the world famous Kruger National Park.
 
Game viewing opportunities should present themselves almost immediately and hopefully you will see several species of antelope, zebra, wildebeest and maybe even giraffe before you reach your rest camp.
 
The Kruger National Park offers a choice of self-catering rest camps, each situated in a different section of the park with its own unique flora and fauna - e.g. Skukuza, Letaba, Olifants, Lower Sabie, Pretoriuskop, Satara and Berg-en-Dal. Accommodation is in simple but comfortable thatched bungalows, with your guide having an allowance to purchase breakfast at the camp restaurant each day.
 
After checking in, settle in and relax in the atmosphere that only the African bushveld can provide.
 
Note: You will need your passport to enter the Kruger National Park.
Days 5 To 6
Today is devoted to game viewing in the Kruger National Park. As you will have the services of a private driver/guide, you will have the flexibility of discussing preferred routings and travelling times with him each day. However we recommend setting off early each morning as the camp gates open (04h30 to 06h00 depending on the season), to take advantage of the best game viewing conditions of the day. All game drives will be in your guide's closed air-conditioned vehicle.
 
Explore this vast 2-million hectare game sanctuary that is the size of Wales, offering magnificent game viewing opportunities with 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 - as well as many other species before returning to your rest camp for breakfast (or buy provisions at camp and cook breakfast at a picnic spot).
 
The rest of the morning is free to relax at your rest camp, before setting out again at the time of your choice - usually the late afternoon - for another game drive. For each full day that you stay in the park (excluding transfer days) you will have one game drive in a large open-top vehicle operated by the park authorities (normally at night) but this can be substitued for a day drive or bush walk, subject to availability.
 
With nearly 150 different species of mammals and over 100 species of reptiles in the Kruger National Park, you can hope to see cheetah, giraffe, hippo, kudu, crocodiles, sable antelope, waterbuck, warthogs, baboons, wild dogs and many other interesting animals. Outstanding bird watching is also guaranteed, with over 500 different bird species including many different eagles, kingfishers, vultures and storks.
  
After a beautiful African sunset, enjoy the balmy evening and pristine stars of the Milky Way as you have never seen them before – as well as the spectacular Southern Cross.
 
Note: Vehicles are not allowed to drive off-road in any national park in South Africa. If you are tall and remain in your chair for your game drives, please be aware there will be some restrictions on your viewing due to the height of the windows in the accessible vehicle. There are no restrictions if you transfer into one of the regular seats.
Day 7
Enjoy some final game viewing in the Kruger National Park, before we travel 5-hours through the scenic Eastern Transvaal to Johannesburg.
 
Check into your hotel in this bustling city of gold.
Day 8
Today your guide will collect you from your hotel and drive 1-hour to Johannesburg to follow in the footsteps of Nelson Mandela on his 'Long Walk to Freedom'.
 
On this privately guided tour you will visit his home in Vilikazi Street in the sprawling township of Soweto, and see significant memorials to the freedom struggle, including the Hector Pietersen Museum.
 
After lunch (own account) you will visit the poignant Apartheid Museum - a living memorial to racial segregation, before returning to Pretoria in the late afternoon.
 
Note: Time permitting, you can adapt your tour to include a visit to Constitution Hill (the site of the Old Fort Prison, where Mandela was first imprisoned) and/or his last home in Houghton, where his Nobel prize is on display (pay these entrance fees locally).
Day 9
This morning we drive 1-hour to the beautiful Magaliesberg Mountains to visit Lesedi, an authentically reconstructed African village showcasing the culture, arts and crafts of South Africa’s five main tribes. Consult a sangoma (traditional healer) and watch energetic dancing, before enjoying an included lunch.
 
In the afternoon your guide will introduce you to some of South Africa’s greatest archaeological treasures, on a visit to the Maropeng Visitors Centre near the Sterkfontein Caves - a World Heritage site dating back billions of years. Dr Broom found the skull of 'Mrs Ples' in these caves, the most complete skull of an Australopithecus africanus ever found in South Africa.
 
Time permitting, on our way back to Johannesburg we can visit the Nirox Foundation Sculpture Park, located in the Khatlhampi Private Reserve.
Day 10
Today travel 2-hours from Johannesburg through the rural North West Province to the resort of Sun City.
 
Check in, settle in and relax in your lush subtropical surrounding and enjoy the many facilities of your resort, which offers the best of Vegas-style gaming combined with wonderful entertainment facilities.
Days 11 To 12
At leisure to relax independently and enjoy the many facilities of Sun City.
 
Although originally established as a gaming resort, today Sun City offers a wide variety of outdoor and leisure activities - with its wonderfully warm weather having made it one of South Africa’s most popular holiday destinations.
  
The resort has many swimming pools, whilst the "Valley of the Waves" water park has gentle rides as well as thrilling steep slides and a tropical beach with real waves. The resort also offers a wide variety of restaurants.
 
If you would like to gamble the entertainment centre offers slot machines and bingo, whilst the casino offers black jack, roulette and more. Outside there are waterfalls, an aviary and abundant tropical bird life.
Day 13
Transfer 2-hours to Johannesburg Airport for your flight home.
