PANORAMA ROUTE - With its numerous spectacular viewpoints, it is one of the most impressive tourist destinations in South Africa. Here the domestic plateau (Highveld) suddenly and steeply falls by up to 1000m.
TIMBAVATI - Across the common, fenceless border to Kruger Park, large populations of lions, elephants, rhinos and many other species migrate.
MKHAYA GAME RESERVE - Swaziland's refuge for threatened animal. These include rhinos, elephants and sable antelopes.
ISIMANGALISO WETLAND PARK - iSimangaliso means miracle or the greatest thing you'll ever see. You will not be disappointed when you take a first look at the amazing ecosystems of the park.
DRAKENSBERGE - They belong to the South African UNESCO World heritage. An imposing wall of rock, 3000 meters high, which holds spectacular hikes with unexpected prospects for you.

Tour Details


South Africa is
particularly African in the subtropical wild East. Next to the Kruger Park and the original mountain savannah of the Zululands, the Indian Ocean coast is attracting the most. Experience dramatic natural spectacles, mountains and canyons on this
impressive journey. Probably the most famous is the Blyde River Canyon. Starting from the God's window with its wide view of the Lowveld, it extends from Bourke's Luck Potholes to the three Rondavels. The animal-rich Kruger National Park will impress you with its size: in a 350 x 60 kilometre area you'll meet the Big Five – leopard, elephant, water buffalo, rhino and Lion. In the Wetlands of the Indian Ocean, St. Lucia continues over the turbulent city
of Durban with its expansive beaches. This characteristic South African trip
concludes with the wild romantic hiking paradise Midlands meander along the
Drakensberg – of course not without the chances of Ajimba activities that
create connections to people and projects on site. Just the authentic African
South Africa.
