It is time to say goodbye to beautiful Cape Town as you are taken from Ellerman House to the Cape Town Airport for your flight to Durban. Upon arrival, you will be transferred to the iconic 5-star Oyster Box Hotel in Umhlanga. 


This morning after an early breakfast meet your guide and depart on your full day Kwazulu-Natal Midlands Tour. The first stop on your tour is the Nelson Mandela Capture Site memorial.

After breakfast, transfer to Durban’s King Shaka International Airport for your flight to Johannesburg, where you will connect with your flight to Skukuza. You will be met on arrival and transferred to Dulini lodge in the world-renowned Sabi Sand Game Reserve, reputed to be one of Africa’s finest safari destinations. Later this afternoon, set off on your first open vehicle game drive, which is sure to be an exciting experience! The afternoon game drive extends into the night to reveal the elusive magic of nocturnal Africa. Return to the camp for dinner and a relaxing evening around the fireplace sharing your day’s adventures.

An early morning game drive ensures that you catch the tail end of the night exploits of nocturnal creatures and inspires you with the new day vigor of the bush, still veiled in dew. This is an essential 2-3-hour safari experience that ends in a lavish breakfast back at camp. The excitement of the safari continues after tea when the intensity of the African heat begins to subside. The afternoon game drive coincides with the close of business for daytime animals and the emerging routines of nocturnal beasts on the prowl. There is nothing quite as enthralling as big cats. The excitement of each drive is interrupted by refreshment breaks, to accommodate any call of the wild and revitalize you with a sundowner cocktail.

Enjoy another day of dawn and dusk game viewing activities in this wildlife paradise. See Africa’s wildlife roaming freely in their natural habitat! Optional bush walks are conducted by experienced field guides. Taking time to discover some of the lesser known delights and absorbing the landscape on foot, is all part of being immersed in the wilderness.

An early morning wake-up call and out into the bush on the morning safari in search of animals that may have eluded you so far. Return to camp for a hearty breakfast, and then transfer to the airport for your scheduled flight to Johannesburg.
