Once you have settled into your accommodation and relaxed a bit, you will be collected once more and taken on a sunset cruise down the river.
This is a day to spend at your leisure which means that you can spend this day touring on your own, enjoying all of the sights and paying a visit to Victoria Falls. You can also spend time visiting all of the exciting markets and you can also be a little adventurous by taking part in some adrenaline filled activities such as bungee jumping and white water rafting.
Day 3 of your tour begins bright and early when we collect you for your safari tour into Chobe National Park. This tour includes a game drive through the National Park, and a relaxing cruise down the Chobe River.
Chobe National Park is in Botswana, just an hour away from the Victoria Falls. The park is known for its immense animal population and is especially well-known for its elephant and lion populations.
After breakfast, you will be transferred to Livingstone Airport in Zambia, as this is airport offers a direct flight to the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport which is your destination on this day.
Once you have landed, you will be transported to Casterbridge Hollow in White River. After checking into the hotel, there is time to relax and unwind before dinner.
We leave White River and drive through to the Hippo Hollow Hotel in Hazyview, where you will be spending the next 3 nights. We choose this hotel because not only is it safe, private and comfortable, but it is also just a 10-minute drive away from the nearest gates into the Kruger National Park.
After arriving, we unpack and relax before embarking on our first game drive into the Kruger National Park. We spend the afternoon driving around the park, catching sight of the various animals before returning to the hotel for dinner.
Before the sun has risen, we are already in the comfort of the safari vehicles, travelling into the Kruger National Park in search of the Big 5 and the other 100 mammal and 500 bird species found in the park. You will be in the company of an experienced guide and taken to those areas in the park that are best known for animal sightings such as water holes, lookout points and river beds. Your guides experience means that you will get the most out of your time with them.
We stop at a local rest camp to eat a pre-packed breakfast before setting out again in search of animals. We stop again at lunchtime to enjoy a meal prepared at the rest camp, selecting from the choices on the menu. The safari continues after lunch.
By 4 pm we are back at the hotel after an interesting day on safari. Now is the time to relax and enjoy a swim before dinner.
This is the final day in the park, and again we set out before the sun rises. Today is the last day to spot those elusive animals we might have missed the previous days. You will be transferred back to Johannesburg after breakfast and a morning safari.
Day 10 starts with a relaxed breakfast and at around 9:00 am we journey to the Palace of the Lost City. We stop at the Hartbeespoort Dam wall and various curio shops along the way.
We reach Sun City and check into the Palace of the Lost City. Once you have settled in, it is time to explore the surrounds.
This day is spent as you please. Relaxing, exploring and taking part in any activity you like is what this day is for. From taking walks around the area to playing golf, visiting the Valley of the Waves, swimming in the various pools or visiting the crocodile farm, today is just for your leisure.
