We have tried to combine the spirit of adventure which the “overland” traveller enjoys that is to expect the unexpected but at the same time travelling in a highly planned and carefully structured way. This "enables" the ]“Disabled traveller" to enjoy an “expedition of a lifetime”
Everybody is welcome on our tours; individuals, friends, families, groups and clubs – disabled or not. All the accommodation used is wheelchair accessible.
From Johannesburg, this day’s journey takes us east through the rolling hills of the Highveld, and we lunch en route to the Kruger National Park. Our nights are spent in 2-3 different main and private camps in bungalows throughout the Park. (L/D)
Days 2 - 4
We spend the next 3 days in the Kruger National Park. This 2 million-hectare haven is home to the Big Five and many other species of animal, bird and plant. Kruger Park is a premier local and international Game Park, featuring, apart from its excellent camps, wonderful views and tranquil settings.
The Park features exiting drives through both dense bush and dry scrub. Whilst in the Park, most of the time will be filled with game viewing on early morning and evening drives, discovering the inner beauty of this memorable Park. This is where you can explore your photographic skills, or even just capture the sight of this incredible variety of wildlife as a memory back home. Our nights are spent at 2-3 different main and private camps throughout the Park. Optional cost night game drive available*. (B/L/D)
Days 5 - 7
After breakfast and a morning's game drive we depart the Kruger National park and head to a magnificent Private Game Reserve, world renowned for reintroducing animals to the wild and its Lion breeding project where we spend 3 nights. You can get to know and encounter up close Lions and maybe even touch a wild cheetahs at this stunning lodge. Dinner is served by us in a traditional "Boma" around a blazing fire.
Activities during these days include morning and afternoon game drives and walks, close animal encounters and a visit to Jessica the Hippo* (optional extra cost - if she is not out exploring the wild:) (B/L/D)
