A World In One Country: Kruger & The Kingdoms

Duration
7 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,379

Enjoy a tour of the best of South Africa, packed full of activities and ‘must-see’ areas from Kruger National Park to the Zulu Kingdom, ending in Durban.


See the best of South Africa on this 7-day group tour from Johannesburg. Spot the Big 5, sun yourself on Durban’s beaches.

The bustling nerve centre of South Africa’s economy, Johannesburg is the entry point of your tour. Consider arriving a day or two early to visit fascinating attractions such as the Military History Museum or the Apartheid Museum. Depart for nearby Pretoria and enjoy an orientation tour of South Africa’s de facto capital.

Onward to Mpumalanga, the gateway to Kruger National Park. Stop at spectacular God’s Window and Blyde River Canyon – the world’s 3rd largest – where fiery red cliffs look out over the surrounding forest. See them from a different angle on an interpretive boat cruise along the River, with a stop at the famous Three Rondavels. On reaching Kruger, get an early start for your best chance at glimpsing the Big Five. Then take another drive in the afternoon, before an elephant interaction experience brings you up close and personal with one of Africa’s most magnificent animals.

Cross into Swaziland and visit the thriving markets of Mbabane before spending the night in Ezulwini Valley, also known as ‘The Valley of Heaven’. Nearby Zululand conjures images of brightly coloured, fearless warriors, and the reality – though more modern – is no less colourful. At charming St Lucia, see hippo, crocodile and over 360 bird species, then go on to Durban to enjoy magnificent beaches. With a full afternoon at leisure, consider a city tour or a trip to U-Shaka Marine World.
