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 instead of diving whilst at the beach.

 

Day 1: Kruger National Park
Departing early from Johannesburg we head off the plateau towards the Kruger National Park, stopping en-route for breakfast (own cost).

The Kruger National Park is home to 147 mammal (including the Big 5), 114 reptile, & 502 bird species.
Once inside the Kruger Park we will be on the lookout for wildlife en route to our camp. After settling in to your chalet you will have a chance to relax for a couple of hours before heading out on your evening sunset game drive with your experienced Kruger National Park guide. This drive lasts between 3 and 3.5 hours, which gives you the opportunity to see plenty of wildlife.
We will enjoy dinner at the restaurant when you return from your drive.

Meals: Dinner

Accommodation: National Park Chalets (en-suite)

 

Day 2: Kruger National Park
Starting the day early you will head out on a full day’s open vehicle game drive with an experienced Kruger guide. You will stop off for lunch at one of the main campsites of the Kruger Park, and your guide will drop you off back at camp in the afternoon.

A second optional sunset game drive can be arranged should you want to do another one.

Meals: Packed Breakfast, Dinner

Accommodation: National Park Chalets (en-suite)

Day 3: South Africa – Swaziland (Mlilwane National Park)
There is an option this morning to do an early morning game drive (own cost), after which you will return to camp in time for breakfast.

Leaving the park we will make our way to Swaziland and to Mlilwane National Park, a beautiful game reserve where you are free to go for walks. It is also possible to hire bicycles and go for a ride around the park.

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Accommodation: National Park “Beehives” (en-suite)

Day 4: Swaziland – South Africa (Rocktail Beach Camp)
Leaving Swaziland today we continue south and make our way to Rocktail Beach Camp, just south of the border with Mozambique.

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.

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Accommodation: Luxury en-suite chalets with private veranda

Days 5, 6: 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 7: St. Lucia Wetlands
Leaving the beach camp after breakfast we continue our journey south to the coastal village of St. Lucia, situated along the coast of KwaZulu Natal. Here you will be able to enjoy the small town, and your guide will also organise an educational river cruise for you for this afternoon. During this cruise you are very likely to see both hippo and crocodiles, and also an abundance of birdlife.

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Accommodation: Lodge – twin / double en-suite rooms

Day 8: Durban
Leaving after breakfast this morning we continue south along the coast to Durban, where the tour ends.
