Your holiday starts in Johannesburg, the historic and culturally happening capital of South Africa. Reflect on a challenging past of segregation and the ensuing liberation of African people as you tour two museums. Visit the township of Soweto, once the home of iconic statesmen Nelson Mandela, is now a thriving scene of fashion and creativity. Then it’s time to rev your car engine and road trip east to a game reserve bulging with the “Big Five.” Not enough safari wildlife adventure for you? No problem, a hot air balloon over the tropical lands found in Hazyview after ziplining through God’s Window, a rainforest that caps off a fabulous time road tripping across such a colourful land.

Travel Itinerary

Destination 1: Johannesburg

Begin your holiday in Johannesburg, a city full of colourful precincts, historic museums, and regenerated township that celebrates creativity, cuisine, and song. Start with breakfast in the Maboneng Precinct, a neighbourhood whose eclectic dining and international coffee sets you up for the day. A visit to the Apartheid Museum will awaken you to the inspirational victory of freedom fighters over the apartheid state. Be sure to stop by the township of Soweto, a place of creativity, design, and a former home of Nelson Mandela. If you fancy escaping the city, Dinokeng Game Reserve is but an hour’s drive if desiring to spot some of Africa’s most famed wildlife.

Destination 2: Balule Private Game Reserve

Next up on your journey is the Balule Private Game Reserve. Wake up to the calling cries of wildlife before enjoying a safari game drive that’ll include “Big Five” sightings.  A popular destination for bird species, look up and witness as the African fish eagle spreads its two-metre wings. After a lunch among the ghostly baobab trees, get ready for further wildlife explorations or a white-water raft down Olifants River. Wherever your adventure takes you, spend the evening in luxury at one of several sumptuous safari lodges right in the heart of nature and next to Kruger National Park.

Destination 3: Hazyview

End your road trip across one of Africa’s most emotive lands with a hot air balloon over the tropical farming lands of Hazyview. Known well for bananas and macadamia nut industries, you’ll feast more than the eyes when in this fertile land. A shimmering haze occurs in the summer heat and only adds to the serenity and intrigue of the forested horizons you’ll enjoy whilst hiking the area. Sit back and relax after a day zip-lining through the sky and indulge in culinary delights picked from the trees you flew between. Less
