Travel Itinerary

Destination 1: Johannesburg

Your journey starts in Johannesburg, where you’ll have no shortage of activities to keep you entertained. History and cultural museums are a highlight here, namely the Constitution Hill exhibition as well as the Apartheid and Hector Pieterson museums that focus on the rise and fall of South Africa’s era of segregation. Nearby is the UNESCO World Heritage site, The Cradle of Humankind. Here you will find the Sterkfontein Caves where scientists discovered a human fossil dating over 2 million years old - a visit to the Maropeng Visitors Centre there is a must! To get a better insight into modern. Only an hour from Johannesburg is the Dinokeng Game Reserve where self-drive safaris are available to view the Big 5. Also onsite are hot-air balloon flights and boat trips.

Destination 2: Balule Private Game Reserve

The Balule Private Game Reserve shares a border (unfenced) with Kruger National Park and so offers similar wildlife experiences, including the Big 5, to its more well-known neighbour. Dawn and dusk game drives, as well as night drives, are available at the reserve as are exciting guided bush walks. The reserve is also home to hundreds of bird species, that makes it a popular destination for birders. The region around the game reserve also has numerous activities for those who decide to venture out. The nearby Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre and Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre offer unique tours of their facilities. Fishing is also a unique opportunity that is available as well as numerous other non-wildlife focused activities such as stargazing, cultural village visits, horseback rides and hot-balloon rides - even white-water rafting.

Destination 3: Hazyview

Hazyview is located just a few miles from Kruger National Park and ideally situated for those looking to do a safari day trip. The town is also located along the Panorama Route, offering easy access to the wonderful viewpoints and hikes that dot the route. The area around the town is noted as having the best climate in the world for growing bananas and many plantations can be seen here. Other than the numerous safari opportunities at nearby Kruger National Park, one can also visit wildlife rehabilitation centres as well as reptile parks. Many outdoor activities are on offer here as well. The most popular perhaps being an unforgettable hot-air balloon safari over the valley. Those not wanting to get quite so high in the air can also partake in zip line trips over the forested valley and along the Sabie River!
