Detailed itinerary

Day 1: Gauteng to Campsite

You will be collected by one of our friendly Selous Tours guides, meeting and setting off with your fellow travellers towards our Campsite, which is nestled in the Klaserie Nature Reserve at the border of the Kruger National Park.  Along the journey, regular refreshment stops will be made, heading towards Hoedspruit where we will do all our shopping. We then visit the Maholoholo Animal Rehabilitation Centrewhere you can interact with a variety of animal species. One of the highlights is allowing a vulture to land on your protected arm and feeding it meat from your hand! From there we continue to our campsite where you will have the opportunity to clean up, have a swim and relax while sitting around the campfire taking in the atmosphere and surroundings of the African Bush.

Meals included on Day 1

Day 2: Campsite into Kruger National Park

The day begins as the sun rises. After a quick cup of tea or coffee, we head towards the Kruger National Park, entering at Orpen Gate, where we pick up any last minute snacks/refreshments for the exploratory road ahead. The day will be spent leisurely driving, and eagerly seeking out whatever game comes our way. Guides will stop as often as desired for prime photo opportunities and to answer any questions. Our route will take us to our first picnic spot where your Guide will provide you with breakfast, while preparing you for the remainder of the day’s game viewing, looking forward to get a glimpse of the infamous Big Five. Lunch offers a welcome opportunity to stretch your legs and enjoy a little shopping at one of the rest camps. The rest of the afternoon is spent trying to find those animals that have eluded us during the morning drive.

We then make our way back to camp. While your evening meal is being prepared, you can get ready to journey back into the bush, this time in search of the nocturnal animals on the evenings Sunset Game Drive on a nearby private game farm. It is here our long day ends.

Day 3: Campsite into Kruger National Park

Another early morning start and after a hot cup of coffee or tea we head back to the Kruger National Park. This time we head into a different part of the park to see if we can find those animals we missed the previous day. We stop again at one of the picnic spots for a warm breakfast and again later for lunch. Slowly as the day goes by our game drive in The Kruger National Park comes to an end with the sun setting behind the Drakensberg Mountains. Arriving late afternoon at camp, your Guide will prepare one of South Africa's favourite dishes, a Braai!!! The evening is spent sitting around the campfire, reflecting and sharing your experiences of the last few days.

Day 4: Campsite to Gauteng

A slightly later wakeup call which means our journey is nearly at an end. After a quick, light breakfast we head towards two of our well known touring spots: "The Three Rondawels", part of the Blyde River Canyon, which is the third largest canyon in the world, and “Echo Caves” near Ohrigstad. Thereafter we continue on our journey back to Gauteng, stopping en-route for refreshments, and depending on the traffic, should arrive early afternoon at your requested drop-off destinations.

You will be collected in Johannesburg/Pretoria by one of our friendly Selous Tours guides, meeting and setting off with your fellow travellers.

Day 7 - Wednesday: Elephant Sands to Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe)

After an early morning light breakfast we drive even further north to the Zimbabwean border post. This takes us through the Kasane forest where we always see herds of elephants and often see a variety of antelopes and sometimes lion, hyena and wild dog. From the border we drive another hour to the vibrant town of Victoria Falls where we will be staying the next two nights. The campsite, Victoria Falls Rest Camp, is situated in the middle of town, within 10 minutes walking distance of just about everything. Your guide will assist you with exchanging currencies and bookings for optional activities that you would like to do. This afternoon we visit the magnificent Victoria Falls waterfall, which is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. It is 1700 meters (1.1 mile) wide, making it the largest sheet of falling water in the world. The Zimbabwean side is the best side to view the waterfall from, as 1400 meters of the waterfall is on that side, as well as the main falls. There is water there throughout the year, while the Zambian side consists of only 300 meters out of the 1700 meters, and has no water during the winter months.
