We will meet you at your hotel/guest house in 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 five minute drive to Simbavati 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 the river.

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".

DAYS 2, 3 and 4

A very early morning wake up call and a welcome mug of coffee with your ranger before departing on the early morning game drive tracking animals and searching for the Big 5. Return to the lodge and freshen up, and enjoy a sumptuous brunch. Following brunch the possibility of a bush walk lures the more adventurous or young at heart offering unexpected insight and knowledge of the eco-system to learn more about the fauna & flora unique to the area or just enjoy the lodge surroundings, relax next to the pool with a good book, get pampered in the Spa or catch up on some sleep.

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. Dinner is served at various settings - around the fire, by candle light in the dining room, on the lodge deck, or even in your suite - for a more romantic affair!
