NORTHERN KWAZULU NATAL TOUR – 7 DAYS US$1 250 pp

Days 1 & 2 Johannesburg to Ndumo Game Reserve (600km).

Our tour begins with an early departure from Johannesburg (we will pick you up at your address) and we travel eastward into Mpumalanga passing through Bethal, Ermelo, Piet Retief and Pongola after which we turn off the N2 and head up to Ndumo Game Reserve, arriving there by mid to late afternoon. Accommodation tonight and tomorrow night is at the exclusive Ndumo Wilderness Camp which is set in the ‘wilderness zone’ of the Reserve, an area not open to the general public. The camp is truly luxurious with its classic en-suite safari tents set on a raised wooden deck under a canopy of giant fig trees. Tour activities include guided walks in the fig and fever tree forests, drives in open Land Rovers and sundowners at the edge of Nyamithi Pan. Probably one of the finest birding spots in the country!

Days 3 & 4 Ndumo Game Reserve to Tembe Elephant Park (50km).

We continue our tour of Maputaland to the adjacent Tembe Elephant Park where we will stay for two nights. Home to the largest and only indigenous elephant herd in Kwazulu-Natal and also home to a rich diversity of wildlife – including four of the ‘Big Five’. This is the Africa that tourists seldom get to see and the privately managed luxury safari lodge ensures an exclusive bush experience including day and evening game drives.

Days 5 & 6 Tembe Elephant Park to Kosi Bay Forest Camp (100km).

From Tembe Elephant Park we travel the short distance to Kosi Bay Forest Camp situated in the Kosi Bay Coastal Forest Reserve. This is a luxurious forest camp from which one can explore the lake system and generally enjoy the varied activities included in the tour such as open Land Rover drives, canoeing, birding (the rare Palm Nut Vulture and Pel’s Fishing Owl can both be found in the Raffia Palm Forest) or why not try a little fly fishing?

Day 7 Kosi Bay Forest Camp to Johannesburg (700 km).

An early morning start to a long days journey back home arriving at approximately 18h00.
