Day to Day Itinerary

Days 1-3

Relax in style

Arrive in Nelspruit, collect your luggage and hired vehicle and then drive to the working rose farm of Summerfields where you will spend the next three nights.

Make the most of this time to relax and indulge in the excellent spa treatments available at Summerfields. You might also want to take part in some exciting activities available in the area: book a guided game drive into the nearby Kruger National Park, go up in a hot-air balloon and get a bird's-eye view of the Kruger or, if you are feeling particularly adventurous, go quad-biking or abseiling.

Days 4-5

Game viewing in the Timbavati

After breakfast, make your way to the Timbavati Private Game Reserve for two nights at the luxury bush lodge, Kings Camp.

This camp offers private guided safaris - the perfect opportunity for you to decide exactly when you want to go on a game drive or go bird watching. You can further enjoy bush breakfasts and outdoor sleepovers as you explore the reserve in the hands of professional guides. And when you aren't out spotting animals and learning about the bush, simply kick back and relax on the lodge's viewing deck overlooking the waterhole.

Days 6-8

Look for leopards at Sabi Sands

Following a hearty breakfast and perhaps an early morning game drive, head for the Lion Sands River Lodge in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve. This luxurious safari lodge is situated in a stunning game viewing area of the reserve.

Indeed, your game viewing might begin as you soon as you arrive at the lodge as its not uncommon to see animals from the lodge's viewing deck. Continue to enjoy excellent wildlife sightings on game drives and guided nature walks as you head out along the Sabie River, an area world-famous for its density of leopards.

Spend the hottest part of the day beside the swimming pool as you sip on a refreshing cocktail before heading out on a late afternoon/early evening game drive.

Day 9

Drive back to Nelspruit

Take a scenic drive back to Nelspruit where you return your hired vehicle and board your onward flight.
