This diverse adventure begins
with a three-night stay in the greater Kruger National Park. You will
experience some off-road driving in an area not open to the public and we will
also make use of some of the tourist roads in the park. We will explore
the areas of the central and southern park. We leave this wildlife icon
and head south into the Kingdom of the Swazis. We spend two nights camping in
the western highlands of Swaziland, exploring the Malolotja Nature Reserve and
some historic and cultural sites.
Our adventure then takes us
directly east, on to the tropical southern Mozambique coastline near Ponta
Malongane where we stay in a lodge on the beach for three nights. We have the
unique experience of exploring the tropical waters on a boating and snorkelling
excursion. We get to enjoy east African seafood cuisine and relax on the

You will meet your guide at Kruger Park's Phalaborwa Gate in the early afternoon. From here we drive along
a private route - not open to
the public to our camp for
the night. The campsite has very basic facilities and is unfenced.
This morning we will continue our drive on the private route back
towards one of the public routes. You will have a picnic lunch pack for the day and have the afternoon off to drive yourself on the park's
public roads, heading towards Satara, our camp for the evening.
Today we move
camp to the south of the park and, after everybody has received their picnic
lunch pack, you will spend the day self-driving or following our guide to the
camp for the night.

We all enjoy a short morning's game drive on the
tourist roads in Kruger, making our way down to the park’s gate. We exit
the park and do some shopping and refuelling in town. From here we enter
the Swazi kingdom and make our way to the western highlands to our campsite for
the next two nights at Malolotja Nature Reserve. This wonderful highland
short-grassed mountain reserve boasts the most magnificent scenery, is home to
a myriad of wildflowers and is well-stocked with game.
After a nice big breakfast, we visit one of the oldest
mines in the world in the south of the reserve. We also pay a visit to
the famous Ngwenya Glass factory where we get to watch the glass blowers create
their magic, all from recycled glass. We return back to our campsite in
the mountains and drive through the reserve on a two-spoor track, enjoying the

the outskirts of Mbabane, leaving the country and entering southern Mozambique.
Our destination for the next three nights is a wonderful self-catering beach
lodge overlooking the tropical waters at Ponta Malongane. Obviously the Bhejane
crew will be on hand to do all the catering so you will not need to lift a

Days 7 & 8:
The next two days are all about the tropical east
coast. We board rubber ducks that take us out to sea to experience the
wonders of the tropical reefs with snorkels and goggles. If we're lucky
we may see a whale, or swim with the dolphins.
We return back to the lodge for lunch and the
afternoon is spent relaxing on the beach or visiting the local markets.
Supper is a traditional Portuguese chicken and prawn meal at a local
There is plenty of time to experience the warm Indian
Ocean and just relax a little.

Do Ouro border post. We say our goodbyes
and head for home. From there it is a two-hour drive, on good tarred
roads, to the N2 highway near the town of Mkuzi.
