A perfect getaway that combines some of the best game viewing in South Africa with the white sandy beaches of Mozambique. We explore the African bush in the renowned Kruger Park area, before we cross the border into Mozambique. We spend time at a private lodge located on a secluded peninsula enjoying the sun and surf. Finally we cross back into South Africa and spend some time in Zululand on a private game reserve, before we make our way back to Johannesburg.
Day 1: DMA Lowveld Rural
Departing from the Greenfire Lodge Johannesburg at 06h30, we follow the main road east to the Lowveld of South Africa, location of the famed Kruger Park and many well-known private game reserves. We spend the night on one of these private reserves, in the spectacular mountains of the big five Mthethomusha Game Reserve. This afternoon we explore the reserve on an open-vehicle game drive.
Day 2: Southern Mozambique
As is custom in the bush, we wake up early to enjoy the African sunrise over a coffee, before we embark on a short morning game drive. We return to the lodge for breakfast, after which we drive the short distance to the Mozambique border, and then on to the capital city, Maputo. We make our way to the harbour, exchanging our vehicle for a boat, which transfers us to our lodge, situated on a secluded peninsula across Maputo Bay. We arrive in the afternoon, and settle in to spend the next 3 nights in a beach paradise.
Day 3: Southern Mozambique
We have the following two days to soak up the sun and enjoy the warm Indian Ocean and white sandy beaches. Our accommodation offers a variety of optional activities from scuba diving and snorkelling to local village tours. Explore the estuaries on a kayak or test your hand at fishing. For those that prefer a more relaxed approach the private picnic on the beach is a must. Extra allowance for activities must be made and are all arranged on location.
Day 4: Southern Mozambique
Another day to enjoy the warm Indian Ocean.
Day 5: Phongolo Game Reserve
This morning, after breakfast at the lodge, we make our way back to Maputo by boat. Reunited with our vehicle, we travel south to enter South Africa at Kosi Bay Border Post. Now in the Kingdom of Zululand, we travel the short distance to one of the private game reserves in the area where we check in to our lodge for the next two nights. In the late afternoon we go on a game drive, exploring the area along the shores of Lake Jozini, before returning to the lodge for dinner.
Day 6: Phongolo Game Reserve
We rise early, and as usual, enjoy a cup of coffee or tea before embarking on a morning game activity. Our expert local guides will tell us about the surrounding environment and all the animals that we find here. We have some time in the afternoon to relax and take in the beauty of the surrounding bush, before again departing in the late afternoon on another open vehicle game drive. We return to the lodge for dinner, and make a toast to our last evening in the bush.
After breakfast we depart for Johannesburg, stopping along the way for an own expense lunch, and arriving in Johannesburg in the late afternoon. The tour ends at the Greenfire Johannesburg Lodge.
