Today you travel to the famous Kruger National Park, now part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park which forms with parks in Mozambique and Zimbabwe a natural sanctuary for a huge variety of animals. Here they live a natural life where they must fend for food and territory the same way they did for thousands of years. Here they can start following ancient migratory routes again because fences are coming down between these parks. As it is a short drive we arrive early morning and then have the pure pleasure of a full day’s game drive in 4×4 vehicles. Get ready to spot hippo, giraffe, elephant, zebra, lion, and many other species in one of Africa’s greatest wildlife areas. You will experience first-hand why Kruger National Park is known as the flagship of South African national parks.

En route we will stop at some of the local markets where you can buy colourful batik or beaded jewellery, amongst others. Arriving at Mlilwane you will soon feel comfortable and at home in your “beehive village” – traditional grass huts on the outside but all western comfort on the inside. Sometimes animals such as zebra, impala and warthog casually wander into the premises, giving you the opportunity for that unique picture!
