Day 1. Pretoria to Hazyview Highlights. Blyde River Canyon, South Africa. Bourke's Luck Pot Holes, South Africa. God's Window, South Africa.

Starting the day in Pretoria we set off on our overland tour travelling through the Mpumalanga Province. On our journey, we enjoy the mountainous terrain along the Panorama Route, where we stop off at Blyde River Canyon, the third largest canyon on the world.

In the late afternoon, we head to Hazyview where we spend our first-night camping under the African sky.

Day 2. Kruger National Park Highlights. Kruger National Park, South Africa.

This morning we wake early, meet our guides and board our 4x4 game viewing vehicles before setting off for a day of game driving to see the wildlife in the Kruger National Park. Being one of Africa's largest wildlife reserves, Kruger offers an immense variety of animals from the dwarf mongoose to the famed 'Big Five.' There is also prolific birdlife and over 330 varieties of trees. We spend the day seeking out the different animals with a break over lunch at one of the camps within the park.

In the late afternoon we head back to Hazyview where we have the evening at leisure to relive the day's thrills around the campfire.

Day 3. Hazyview

We have the opportunity to head out into Kruger National Park once more to explore the northern or southern territory we may not have seen on yesterday's drive.The different areas of this vast reserve are home to a number of different species endemic to them due to the grassland, bush or forest environments found in each.

For those not opting for the Adventure Pass, today is spent at leisure with the option to enjoy activities in the Hazyview area.

Day 4. Hazyview to Pretoria

Bidding farewell to Kruger and the Mpumalanga area, we travel back to the city where our overland tour ends on arrival in Pretoria.

Additional Info

PRE TOUR ACCOMMODATION:
This tour departs Pretoria early on day 1; we strongly recommend therefore that you plan to arrive the day before departure to overcome any jet-lag and acclimatise to Africa. We would be happy to book pre-tour accommodation for you – please call or email us (or speak to your agent) with your arrival details and accommodation requirements. However please book early to avoid disappointment and the risk of having to find more expensive (or less convenient) lodgings.

If time allows, we also suggest planning a night or two extra (after your tour) to make the most of Pretoria and the surrounding area.

ACTIVITIES & EXCURSIONS:
These are optional activities that are booked during your holiday and paid directly to the provider while on tour. These options offer a variety of experiences and allow you the freedom to decide what activities you would like to do.

ACCOMMODATION:
We use 2-person dome tents with fly sheets, sewn-in groundsheets, zip-up insect screens and foam mattresses. We mainly use campsites, which usually have reasonable wash and shower facilities, electricity points and sometimes even a small shop, bar or swimming pool.

TRANSPORT:
24-seater, self-contained, custom-built safari truck with on-board tables, plug sockets, freezer, water tank, library, safety features and 70-litre individual lockers, 4x4 safari vehicle.

GAME PARK VISITS:
In order to maximise the quality of game driving and to comply with local authority rulings, some of our National Park visits and game viewing is carried out using services provided by local African ground handlers. As well as enhancing our experience using local guides and smaller vehicles it also allows us to contribute at a ‘grassroots’ level to local economies from which local people benefit.

TOUR STYLE:
This is a participation tour and your help will be needed in assisting with the various day to day duties, such as shopping, cooking and keeping the truck tidy (usually on a rota basis). But don’t worry it’s not all hard work and it’s a great way to meet the local people and get to know your fellow travellers. Your contribution benefits the success of the tour - most people find the greater their involvement, the greater their enjoyment of the whole trip.
