Full Itinerary
Highlights: Rocktail Beach Camp, Kruger National Park, 2 x Full Day Open Vehicle Game Drives
Countries Visited: South Africa, Swaziland

This is a great tour for both divers and non-divers, with the perfect mix of wildlife and beach, and plenty of optional activities to enjoy other than diving whilst at the beach.

 

Day 1: Johannesburg to Rocktail Beach Camp

Departing early from Johannesburg we make our way to the coast, just south of the Mozambique border. The drive will take us approximately 8 hours, depending on traffic.

Rocktail Beach Camp is set back in and shaded by the sanctuary of the lush Maputaland Coastal Forest covering the ancient dunes that make up the edge of South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal coast. With the Maputaland Marine Reserve just offshore and the beach a short walk from the camp, there are plenty of beach adventures just waiting to be experienced. The beaches are quiet, unspoilt, and stretch for miles.

We aim to arrive by mid-afternoon, and will enjoy a welcome drink in the bar whilst our luggage is taken up to our rooms.  Our hosts will join us in the bar and discuss what activities each person would be interested in doing whilst here.

You can relax for the rest of the afternoon, and we will meet again in the bar for a drink before dinner.  Be prepared for a huge, delicious meal this evening!

Meals: Dinner
Accommodation: Luxury en-suite chalets with private veranda

 

Days 2, 3: Rocktail Beach Camp

These 2 days are free for you to enjoy the camp, the swimming pool, the beach, and any activities you choose to participate in. If you want to keep busy, there are plenty of things to choose from: diving (why not try a Discover Scuba course if you have never dived before?), ocean experience, bush walks, snorkelling trips, Lake Sibaya visits, cultural village tours, Tembe Elephant Park morning safaris and more.

If you are a diver and have opted for the “Kitty with Dives”, you will be doing your 4 dives on these days. The diving here is world-class, and on unspoilt reefs – it will take your breath away! You will also have time to enjoy some of the other activities available should you wish (own cost).

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner
Accommodation: Luxury en-suite chalets with private veranda

 

Day 4: Marloth Park

Leaving Rocktail after breakfast, we will make our way north, through Swaziland, and on to Marloth Park, which borders the Kruger National Park.  We will be staying at a beautiful self-catering lodge, where you are likely to see warthog and other game such as wildebeest, giraffe, zebra and impala wandering around the streets and gardens.

The drive today is not a long one, and we aim to arrive in Marloth Park by the early afternoon.  You will have time this afternoon to take a walk around the park and along the river.

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner
Accommodation: Private Lodge – twin / double en-suite rooms

 

Day 5: Kruger National Park

Starting the day early you will head out on a full day’s open vehicle game drive with an experienced guide into the Kruger National Park, home to 147 mammal (including the Big 5), 114 reptile, & 502 bird species.  You will stop off for lunch and a rest from the heat of the day at one of the main campsites of the Kruger Park, returning to our lodge in the late afternoon.

Meals: Packed Breakfast, Dinner
Accommodation: Private Lodge – twin / double en-suite rooms

 

Day 6: Kruger National Park

Accommodation: Private Lodge – twin / double en-suite rooms
