This diverse South Africa vacation takes you behind the wheel, exploring the land of the Zulus and enjoying African safari opportunities, along with all South Africa’s outdoor lifestyle has to offer.


This 10-day trip through South Africa starts with two safari lodge stays. Then relax with sports, entertainment and other activities at your leisure.

Travel from Durban to Lidiko Lodge in St Lucia, Zululand. In the heart of the St Lucia Wetland Park, enjoy the beauty and wildlife from the comfort of exclusive lodge accommodation before going on to Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge. The only private lodge inside Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park, it gives you access to a private concession within the park, where you can spot the Big 5 – Elephants, Black Rhinos, Lions, African Buffalo, and Leopards – on game drives, and enjoy spectacular views over the plains.

This is also a popular region of South Africa with domestic tourists. Spend another night in Umhlanga, a haven for shopping, entertainment, and good food in the district, before going on to Drakensberg Gardens Golf & Spa Resort. Whether you prefer to drive down the 18-hole course, or unwind in the spa, you can be sure of a relaxing end to your journey. Or if you’d rather stay active, consider canoeing, fishing, horse riding or hiking.
