Start your journey by making your way to the Sun City Resort, situated 187km from Johannesburg, in South Africa’s North West Province. Sun City features four top-quality hotels, a Vacation Club, magnificent sporting and recreational facilities including 2 world class golf courses, the magical Lost City water-park and The Valley of the Waves. The resort is surrounded by the imposing mountains of the malaria-free Pilanesberg National Game Park.
Depart after breakfast and travel to the Madikwe Private Game Reserve, against the Botswana Border, just over 200km from Sun City. The malaria-free Reserve covers some 75,000 hectares and is home to 66 mammal species, including the Big 5, and approximately 300 resident and migrant bird species. During your stay, you will be taken on guided day and night game drives and bush walks tracking Elephant, Buffalo, Rhinos, Cheetah, Leopard, Lion, Hyena, Wild Dog and many other animal species.
Make your way to the Coast of KwaZulu-Natal where you will spend the next few days at the beach. This is a long distance to cover so we would recommend flying from O.R. Tambo to King Shaka Airport. The warm Indian Ocean and sunny weather make the Natal coast a popular year-round holiday resort for both local and international visitors.
OYSTER BOX HOTEL
Travel to the Phinda Private Game Reserve, which is known for its abundant wildlife, diversity of habitats and a wide range of activities. At Phinda you can enjoy a lush green environment, due to its coastal rainfall pattern. A fascinating variety of landscape and vegetation, shelter an abundance of wildlife, including not only the Big Five but much rarer and less easily spotted species such as the cheetah and the black rhino. Only a handful of lodges share an area of 23 000 hectares, ensuring an intimate experience with prime wildlife sightings.
Make your way to the lush Maputaland Coastal Forest covering the ancient dunes that make up the edge of South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal coast. The Maputaland Marine Reserve is just offshore and the beach a leisurely 15-minute walk from Rocktail Beach Camp, offering world-class diving, snorkeling and remote, unspoilt beaches.
