DAY 1 Kruger National Park
We drive eastwards via Witbank and Middelburg to Nelspruit and enter the Kruger National Park, one of the largest game reserves in Africa. It covers an area of nearly 20 000 square kilometres (7,500 sq mi) and extends 360 kilometres (220 mi) from north to south and 65 kilometres (40 mi) from east to west.
Our encounter with the wild life starts here. Tonight we enter our camp for dinner and overnight.
DAY 2 Kruger National Park
Today is completely devoted to game viewing as we search for the 'Big Five', amongst other animals. We reach our camp at sunset for dinner and overnight. Some may want to do a night drive in an open game viewing vehicle utilising high powered spotlights to find the nocturnal animals (optional).
DAY 3 Panoramic Route
After a final game drive and breakfast, we drive via Kowyn's Pass to the Escarpment and visit Bourke's Luck Potholes, Blyde River Canyon, God's Window and the Lisbon Falls. Then we travel through the Abel Erasmus tunnel and descend down to the Lowveld en-route to Tzaneen. Explore the town and travel into the Magoebaskloof pass where our hotel is situated. The rest of the afternoon you can embark on short explorations around the hotel and marvel at the scenic views.
DAY 4 Magoebaskloof – Waterberg
Explore the area some more until we depart mid-morning and travel via Polokwane (Pietersburg) to the Waterberg area and to our private nature reserve.
After check-in, commence on an open vehicle drive in the Waterberg Mountains with magnificent views into the valleys. You overnight in the most luxurious tent you have ever seen – with en-suite facilities and all!
DAY 5 Waterberg – Pretoria - Johannesburg
Rise early for your game viewing drive. An optional helicopter trip is available and definitely not for the fainthearted! Spot the wildlife across the ravines or in the valleys. Unfortunately it is time to leave this paradise and you arrive at the chalets to check out and drive to Johannesburg via Pretoria for a short tour of the city. The highlights are the Voortrekker Monument, Kruger House and the Union Buildings.
