Passing through the village of Dullstroom you will make your way to the northern Drakensberg and onto the Panorama Route, nature's own amusement park. Here you will stop to admire one of the world’s biggest canyons, the Blyde River Canyon and the Three Rondavels, views at God's Window, the 30m freestanding quartzite buttress, Pinnacle Rock and the impressive Lisbon Falls. Enjoy lunch en route (own account).
Blyde River Canyon

The tour stops in White River for the night. Guests dine at the hotel.

Day 2 | Monday SABIE to KRUGER GATE via HAZYVIEW (±145km)

Guests enter the iconic Kruger National Park and enjoy an afternoon’s open safari vehicle game drive. The park is host to one of the largest and most successful conservation schemes in the world.
End the day at the hotel and freshen up before dinner. Enjoy a boma-styled dinner, alongside an open fire (weather permitting) and accompanied by the sounds of the bush, a uniquely African backdrop.
Accommodation: Protea Hotel Kruger Gate or similar – dinner, bed and breakfast

Bongani Mountain Lodge safari

Day 3: Tuesday: Kruger Gate to Mthethomusha Game Reserve via Kruger National Park (±110km)
After breakfast, journey through the magnificent expanses of the Kruger National Park which balances flat bushveld with rolling savannah, protecting a spectacular and world re-known diversity of fauna and flora.

Your route will take you to Skukuzu, exiting through Malelane Gate on towards Mthethomusha Game Reserve, on the southern border of the Kruger National Park, where you can enjoy lunch (own account).

Set against the pristine Malelane Mountains, with the “Big 5” wandering its 8,000ha land, is the Mthetomusha Game Reserve. A place where ancient paths were once trekked by the first people of Africa, the San Bushmen.

Enjoy a late afternoon open vehicle game safari with a professional guide who will have you traversing through the reserve searching for friends and foe in the wild and viewing an exhibition of more than 200 San rock paintings discovered on the property.

Return from the bush, freshen up and relax with pre-dinner drinks (own account). Enjoy a dinner of mixed Pan-African cuisine.

Accommodation: Bongani Mountain Lodge or similar – dinner, bed and breakfast including two game viewing activities

Day 4: Wednesday: Safari to Johannesburg via Kaapsehoop (±390km)
Before savouring breakfast you will have another opportunity to spot and photograph the game on an open vehicle morning game drive. Departing Mthetomusha Game Reserve we travel to Kaapsehoop, a mountain village with a storybook charm.

Enjoy the lovely views of the De Kaap Valley Mountains while having lunch (own account) at the reserve. Staying off the beaten track we continue our journey onto Kaapsehoop. The population of wild horses that roam the surrounding forest and often trot into the town to graze in the locals’ yards has been part of Kaapsehoop for over 100 years. The town began as a miner’s camp in 1882, then changed to a thriving forestry village, but grew very little in size. The population of horses outnumbers the human inhabitants.

A scenic drive through Mpumalanga sees us back in Johannesburg, ending the tour at your hotel or at OR Tambo International Airport in the late afternoon.
