East to West Coastal 7 Day Tour (Code: SCDX)

DAY 1 Durban – Pietermaritzburg – Drakensberg Mountains This tour highlights excellent contrasts of landscape including excellent scenery and flowers of Namaqualand during the months of July to September after good rains. You are collected at 09h00 and we drive inland to Pietermaritzburg, the capital of KwaZulu-Natal, for a brief city tour. Stop at the railway station where Mahatma Gandhi was thrown off the train because of the colour of his skin, and see the waiting room where, in the silence of the night, he formulated his philosophy of passive resistance. Continue to Howick where we visit the 100m high Falls, and stop at the monument erected on the spot where Nelson Mandela was arrested in 1962. Continue through an area of gentle pastoral beauty called the Natal Midlands. Pass through grassy plains scattered with villages and lush farmlands where plump cattle and thoroughbred horses graze. We stop at the place where Winston Churchill was arrested by the Boers during the Anglo-Boer War. Enter the Spionkop Game Reserve and have a good chance of seeing, amongst others, white rhino, giraffe and zebra.Then we travel to our hotel from where you can enjoy magnificent views while enjoying sundowners. DAY 2  Drakensberg Mountains – Bloemfontein After breakfast, we visit the Royal Natal National Park with magnificent views of the Amphitheatre. Take a short hike to the Cascades Falls. We might even be joined by the odd baboon with the same idea. Mid-morning we commence our drive via the Oliviershoek Pass, with beautiful views onto the Sterkfontein Dam, to the Golden Gate Highlands National Park. Through the ages water has modelled the sandstone into spectacular formations, and has interacted with iron oxides to produce a brilliant range of yellows, oranges and reds. On our way we may encounter red hartebeest, black wildebeest, zebra and springbok.  Clarence that lies beneath
