Kruger National Park
This adventure begins and ends at O.R Tambo International Airport, in South Africa.
Upon your arrival at O.R Tambo International Airport you will be met by a member from the team who will drive to Lanseria Airport for your scheduled charter flight to the Sabi Sands.
More than 65 000 hectares make up the Sabi Sand Game Reserve which borders the Kruger National Park. Made up of a number of private game lodges - each one differing in atmosphere - a visit to the area guarantees a never-to-be-forgotten experience of the African Bush. With no fences between the farms (or for that matter between them and the Kruger Park), animals wander across vast stretches of grazing land as they did years and years ago. With one of the richest game populations in the country, the chances of seeing the Big 5 (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino) are excellent.
Spend two nights at Dulini Lodge. Accommodation is in a spacious stone cottage, on the banks of the Mabrak River. The air conditioned suite boasts an en-suite bathroom, a sparkling plunge pool and shady deck. Your stay includes three meals daily, soft drinks, house wines, local brand spirits and beers, teas and coffees, emergency medical evacuation insurance, laundry and daily lodge activities.
Adventures include twice-daily game drives (including spotlit night drives) in open 4x4 safari vehicles, with expert guides and Shangaan trackers. Guests can also enjoy interpretive guided bush walks - excellent for birdwatching. Specialist Safaris available at Dulini Lodge (at an additional cost) include Private and Photographic Safaris.
Today, after an exceptional breakfast, you will hop across the border by light aircraft to Nitani in Botswana.
The Tuli Block is an area of striking natural beauty and fascinating geological formations found nowhere else in Botswana. Situated along a 350km long strip on the southern border, this area was once the stomping ground of great colonial explorers like Cecil John Rhodes and Sir Thomas Baines. It is now dedicated exclusively to conservation and the combined 300 000 hectares make up the largest privately-owned conservation area in Southern Africa. Tuli is called the “the land of the giants” as you can see seven of Africa’s giants: the elephant, lion, giraffe, the eland, the ostrich, the kori bustard and the baobab tree.
Spend two nights at Nitani. Accommodation is in a luxurious suite with en-suite bathroom and private rock pool. Your stay includes three meals daily, soft drinks, house wines, local brand spirits and beers, teas and coffees and scheduled activities.
Adventures include interactive walks, where you are exposed to groundbreaking research programmes, game drives and specialised archaeological tours.
After a mouth-watering breakfast you will be flown by light aircraft to Lanseria Airport where you will be met by a representative from the team who will drive you O.R Tambo International Airport, for your onward flight.
