11 Day Explore Kruger and Coast Safari Comfort Itinerary

Day 1: Johannesburg to Kruger Bush Camp

Leaving at 06h30 from the City of Gold, Johannesburg, we journey through the picturesque route that leads us to Mpumalanga. On the way, we pay a visit to Dullstroom, make our way down to the Drakensburg Escarpment and into the lowveld where we spend the next 2 nights in a comfortable Bush Camp in a private reserve within the greater Kruger National Park, an area where animals roam naturally and unrestricted. Being neighbours to the Kruger National Park, our tents are beautifully designed in order to blend in with our surrounds. The camp has soft beds, en-suite bathrooms, a revitalizing splash pool and incredible views over the vegetation that encircles us. In the evening, dinner is prepared on a crackling open fire.

Meals: Dinner

Day 2: Kruger Bushveld Camp

We begin today by dipping local rusks into a good cup of coffee before embarking on a lovely game walk. We trek for around three hours, seeking out game and making frequent stops in order to be educated about the ways of the bush. A guide and tracker will lead you through all the walks in the Park. We make our way back to camp for an early afternoon brunch, after which we spend some time unwinding by the pool. At midday, we climb aboard an open vehicle in order to conduct a game drive that transforms into a lengthy, but thrilling, evening game drive. Residing in the bush in the evening grants us the chance to observe plenty of nocturnal creatures which would usually be difficult to spot. Dinner is a delicious bush ‘braai’, before we are lulled to sleep by the distant calls of the wild.

Meals: Brunch, Dinner

Day 3: Panarama Route – Hazyview

Up early, after a sumptuous breakfast we set off for the beautiful Panorama Route. First up, Blyde River Canyon, then on to Bourke’s Luck Potholes, Gods Window, and the cosy little town of Graskop where we will enjoy an own expense lunch. After lunch we head down the Kowyn Pass to the Greenfire Lodge Hazyview in the indigenous forest on the banks of the Sabie River – we will spend two nights here.

Meals Breakfast, Dinner

Day 4: Kruger National Park

We depart from our bush camp early today in order to journey to the famous Kruger National Park, where we spend the rest of the day observing game from the fantastic height of our safari vehicle. We indulge in a picnic brunch and are free to explore the rest camps in the afternoon. Late in the afternoon we will leave the park and return to our lodge.

Meals: Brunch, Dinner

Days 5: Swaziland – Zululand

An early morning departure will have us on the road and heading for the border into the Kingdom of Swaziland. Swaziland is a landlocked country with plenty of culture and history. We will pass beautiful scenery and numerous traditional homesteads and fields of sugarcane. We will stop at a granite mountain called Sibebe rock which is 350m above the Mbuluzi Valley. You will learn about the history and beliefs of Sibebe.

We will travel via the Capital of Mbabane to our lodge for the night where we will enjoy a catered meal.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 6: Zululand

The winding roads of Swaziland will take us back into South Africa in the late morning. Once we have our border formalities we will enter Zululand. This area is known for a variety of indigenous animals including the black and white rhino. In the afternoon we will go on a game drive to appreciate the fauna and flora of the area.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7 – 8: Drakensburg

We head up into the hills of Kwazulu Natal which are packed with history around the wars raged during the Boer and Zulu wars.  Our lunch stop will be at one of the famous battlefields in the area where we will have time to learn a bit more. This afternoon we reach the majestic Drakensberg mountain range, “Barrier of Spears”. We transfer to a 4X4 vehicle, and then enjoy an exciting drive (or walk) on mountain tracks high up to the Greenfire Lodge Drakensburg.

We spend two nights here in cosy log cabins and will have a day of hiking, exploring, and simply enjoying the wonders of this National Heritage Site. A walk to the San Rock Art gallery is well worth it and for the more adventurous pony trekking is also available.

Meals Included: Breakfast x2, Lunch x2, Dinner x2

Day 9 – 10: Dolphin Coast

After a leisurely start we are transferred back down to our vehicle and head for the beauty of the Indian Ocean. We journey today through the Natal Midlands, pit stopping at small art and craft shops, view arts and other interesting attractions. Lunch today at Nottingham road will be at your own expense and then we will continue to the Mandela Capture site for a brief visit. Our accommodation for the next two nights will be on the coast.

Our accommodation is right on the beach at the Greenfire Lodge Dolphin Coast which makes you feel like you are on a beautiful island with waves crashing and the feel of sand between your toes. Enjoy a day that is open for you to do as you wish by swimming in the warm sun and lazing on the beach. You can also take a walk to the village and get acquainted with the locals here. Look forward to a fish braai here on the patio of the lodge. Please note that lunch and dinner are at your own expense.
