- Big 5 Safari in the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Game Reserve, the oldest Reserve in Africa
DescriptionStart with pickup after breakfast in Durban or the surroundings or KSIA and head north on the N2 highway. First stop is the small quaint town of St Lucia which falls within the iSimangiliso Wetland Park. This Park has been declared a world heritage site. Here you will embark on a hippo and crocodile boat cruise. Get up close and personal with these magnificent beasts. Enjoy a light lunch in the town (at own expense). Visit the Endomeni Cheetah Rehabilitation center. Here you will get to interact with these magnificent animals and learn about their conservation struggles in Africa. After lunch, make your way around the corner to your accommodation for the night. After settling into your en-suite accommodation for the evening and freshening up, meet round the campfire and indulge in a braai (BBQ) dinner. Wait whilst the bushbabies (a nocturnal primate) come around for feeding time. Next day it is an early rise as you head out on your Big 5 Safari in the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Game Reserve. Spend the entire day in the park searching for all the animals and birds on offer with your highly qualified guide. Coffee and tea will be provided, along with breakfast and lunch. Limited refreshments are also provided. After your magnificent day in African paradise, return to camp for some much-needed rest and a scrumptious dinner. The following day, enjoy a final morning game drive to hopefully see anything you may have missed or choose from a range of other activities. Breakfast once again will be provided. Around midday, head back to Durban or KSIA as you complete the trip.
