We cross the border into the landlocked kingdom of Swaziland and make our way to Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary for more a game viewing safari. Crossing back into South Africa we visit Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve, St Lucia Wetland Park and the colourful, spicy city of Durban before leaving to the highlands of Lesotho where you can try your hand at pony trekking. We end our tour with a visit to Addo Elephant National Park in the Eastern Cape.
From Durban to Port Elizabeth, this tour takes us through the mountainous pony trekking country of Lesotho, to Eastern Cape beaches and into the bush at Addo Elephant National Park. Leaving Durban, we visit the craggy peaks of the Drakensberg Mountains and take a guided hike through a World Heritage Site. We head to Lesotho, one of the highest countries in the world at 1000m above sea level and then on to the East Coast at Cinsta where you can relax next to the river or explore the windswept beaches. Before arriving in Port Elizabeth, we visit Addo where you can have a most spectacular elephant viewing experience.
