Days 1 - 3: Mashatu Lodge, Northern Tuli Game Reserve, Botswana
On day one, you will air transfer from Johannesburg Lanseria Airport to Mashatu Lodge where you will be accommodated for 3 nights on a fully inclusive basis including local drinks.
Mashatu Main Camp is located in the remote eastern corner of Botswana, at the confluence of the Limpopo and Shashe Rivers, in an area known historically as the Tuli Enclave - a diverse wilderness of savannah, riverine forests, marshland, open plains and sandstone outcrops.
This area is home to no less than 7 of Africa's giants: the African Elephant, the Lion, the Giraffe, the Baobab Tree, the Eland, the Ostrich and the Kori Bustard. Game viewing in Africa in open 4-wheel drive vehicles, guided by expert rangers and experienced trackers, is one of the highlights of your stay.
With up to 350 bird species, and wildlife such as Eland, Lion, Cheetah, Elephant, Impala, Wildebeest, Giraffe and Zebra what more could you ask for. At night you must be lucky enough to see the Bat-eared fox, African wildcat and the magnificent Leopard.
Accommodation: Mashatu Lodge can accommodate 28 guests in insect proof luxury suites, each with a large comfortable en-suite bathroom. French doors open onto the African bush where guests can relax and savour the sights and smells of the bush. There is a magnificent viewing deck directly off the bar or "gin trap" together with an elevated lounge overlooking the waterhole.
Days 4 and 5: The Outpost, Kruger National Park, South Africa
After breakfast depart Mashatu Lodge with a road transfer to The Outpost in the Northern Kruger National Park. Spend two nights inclusive of all meals, local drinks and two daily game drives per day in open safari vehicles with sundowners and snacks.
The Pafuri area is arguably one of the most scenically beautiful and diverse wilderness areas in the Kruger National Park. This 26,500ha concession, belonging to the Makuleke people, boasts nearly 80% of the Kruger Park’s biodiversity. Immerse yourself in the beauty, splendour and stillness.
Game drives leave at first morning light and late afternoon. For the adventurous, you can experience the wilderness on a guided walking safari.
Accommodation: The Outpost accommodates 24 guests in 12 open plan, en-suite luxury spaces cantilevered on a hill overlooking the Luvuvhu River. The private, free standing spaces are inter-connected to each other and the central lodge area by 500 metres of Zimbabwean teak walkway. Enjoy 180˚ views of the African wilderness and fall asleep to the open-air sounds of the African night.
Day 6 -8: MalaMala Camp, Sabi Sand Game Reserve
After your morning activity and breakfast, you will depart The Outpost for your air transfer to MalaMala Camp in the Sabi Sands area. At MalaMala Camp, 3 nights accommodation has been reserved for you on a fully inclusive basis, including local drinks.
MalaMala Game Reserve, the first private photographic safari destination in South Africa, offers an authentic African safari experience.
At a mammoth 13 200 ha (33 000 acres), MalaMala lies sandwiched between the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and the world famous Kruger National Park. The 19 km (12 mile) unfenced border with this massive wildlife conservancy provides unimpeded access to wildlife. Of great appeal to such wildlife is the vast array of MalaMala’s habitat type - ranging from open savannah to dense riparian zones and granite outcrops. But perhaps the strongest allure to wildlife is the perennial Sand River of which 13 km (8 miles) flow through the reserve.
Day 9: Depart
After your morning activity and breakfast depart by road transfer to Skukuza Airport.
