Our tour departs Durban and makes it way to Itala Game Reserve.
This park offers a unique experience, as the landscape is mountainous, and the park is home to many different species that are not found in the other parks we will be visiting.
We leave Itala in the KZN Midlands, after a morning game drive and move towards the coast to our next stop which is the Pongola Private Game Reserve, located on the Pongola dam (3rd largest in the country). Our camp is located on the edge of a mountain over looking the dam. This is the only one of the 5 reserves that is not owned by KZN Wildlife. To offer a different game viewing experience we will join the rangers for a cruise on the dam to view the game as they come down to drink as well as the many hippos and crocodiles in the dam. This game reserve is very highly rated by bird lovers.
We slip into the Greater St. Lucia Wetlands Park, which is one of KwaZulu-Natal's world heritage sites. The rest of the afternoon is spent relaxing on the pristine beach enjoying the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean.
Days 4 & 5
We enter Hluhluwe-Imfolozi game reserve, where we will spend our last two nights seeking out the Big 5 and everything else the park has to offer. You will even join the rangers themselves on a night drive in their open safari vehicles to seek out the nocturnal animals.
See us finish off the tour with a morning game drive. After brunch it’s a short hope and we end the tour in Durban where we will drop you off at your hotel.
Birding can be incorporated into this tour. We have one of the countries best bird guides (one of six), available to do this tour for you should you be a keep birder. Please feel free to request a list of special birds we could find for you on this tour.
All the tours we offer are perfectly suited to be the ideal family holiday. As we do not mix groups together you don’t have to worry about loud or over active children getting in the way of anybody else. Our guides understand that tours with children need to be handled a little differently! On request we can even provide prams, car seats and booster seats for very young children.
