Part of our Scheduled & Overland Tours collection, this 14-day road safari showcases South Africa’s picturesque KwaZulu-Natal, the small monarchy of Swaziland, Mozambique’s gorgeous coastline and the legendary Kruger National Park.
Your trip kicks off in Johannesburg, South Africa’s ‘City of Gold’, before you meander through the historical Zululand’s rolling emerald hills and the incredibly scenic Drakensberg escarpment. Encounter wildlife on game drives in the uMkhuze and Hluhluwe-iMfolozi game reserves, and learn about Zulu traditions during a cultural village visit.
After your Big 5 safari experience, make your way to alluring Kosi Bay. Nestled in the north-eastern corner of South Africa where the iSimangaliso Wetland Park (a World Heritage Site) drains into the Indian Ocean, the area is one of the last corners of untouched African paradise. Explore this fantastic ecosystem on foot and enjoy some snorkelling in the Kosi Bay estuary.
Next stop: the Kingdom of Eswatini, formerly known as Swaziland. This compact landlocked country is known for its wildlife and rich culture. Discover the Hlane Royal National Park, home to Swaziland’s biggest herds of game and rich birdlife.
On day seven, you’ll leave Swaziland and cross the border into magical Mozambique. Recharge during an overnight stop in the capital of Maputo, before travelling through mango and cashew plantations as you head up the country’s captivating coastline. You will spend a few days in Inhambane, a paradisiacal place steeped in history and surrounded by nodding palm trees and magnificent beaches.
Leave the coast behind and travel through the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, back into South Africa as you enter the Kruger. Explore this iconic conservation area on game drives while you spot big game like lion, elephant, buffalo and giraffe.
