DAY 1

We will meet you at your hotel or guest house at 6:00am and then depart Johannesburg and travel east to Dullstroom and Lydenburg.

After a refreshment break in Ohrigstad we then a drive along part of the panoramic route along the escarpment of the Drakensberg mountains, stopping the Blyde River Canyon to experience the breath-taking view. This magnificent canyon is the third largest canyon in the world. Continue down the spectacular Abel Erasmus Pass into the Lowveld, it is now only a forty minute drive to the Lodge, situated in a "Big Five” reserve which is part of Greater Kruger Park. After enjoying welcome “non-alcoholic” drink on arrival, time to settle into your room then enjoy a light lunch looking out over the reserve and a waterhole.

Late afternoon is "safari time" Meet your ranger and board an open game tracking vehicle to explore the African Bush looking for some of the many species that make this area home. The ranger will point out and explain the many animals found, and hopefully you will be lucky enough to see the elusive cats. Just before sunset the ranger will stop and sundowner drinks accompanied with tasty snacks are enjoyed in the bush. The drive back to the lodge will be a night drive using spot lights to look for the elusive nocturnal animals. Once back at the lodge meet fellow guests at the bar area and dinner is served in a traditional "boma".

DAY 2

A very early morning wake-up call, meet for a welcome mug of coffee and biscuits with your ranger before departing on the early morning game drive. Return to the lodge for hearty breakfast, after breakfast there is time to go on an optional game walk with your ranger or freshen up then enjoy the lodge surroundings. Escape the midday heat by spending time in or around the swimming pool, relaxing in a hammock, being pampered in the "sala" with a massage or enjoy a siesta. At 2:00pm a light lunch is enjoyed under a tree looking out over the bush and a waterhole.

Afternoon high tea is a time to interact with other guests and is served at around 3:30pm with a selection salty and sweet treats. Following directly thereafter you are off to an afternoon & evening game drive adventure with a stop-over in the bush for sundowners watching the splendour of the African sun setting over the mountains. Drinks are accompanied by snacks and some South African specialties. After the sun set stop the drive is continued with the aid of spot lights looking for any animals not yet spotted. Return to the lodge, freshen up and meet for a pre-dinner drink and then have dinner around a fire in a traditional "boma" or in the lodge dining room.

DAY 3

Another early start to the day with a sun rise game drive to have one last chance to spot any animals not yet seen. Once back at the lodge a healthy breakfast will be ready. After breakfast freshen up and check out and then we leave the lodge and head back to Johannesburg arriving in Johannesburg at approximately 4:00pm.
