South Africa is a visually radiant land, its natural beauty and diversity perhaps most memorably illustrated in its wildlife-rich national parks and the endlessly scenic Garden Route, a stretch of forests and wetlands, rivers and lakes that fringes the southern coastline. This exhilarating tour includes both a Garden Route journey and a stay at Mala Mala, the jewel in the crown of African safari lodges, along with enthralling visits to unspoilt Swaziland, Pretoria, Durban and colonial Cape Town, set in the iconic shadow of Table Mountain, where luxurious accommodation on the city’s attractive waterfront provides a grand finale to a sensational travel experience.
We set out for one of the greatest experiences that the African continent has to offer. We are met by rangers from Mala Mala Game Reserve at Shaw’s Gate and are transferred by open top jeep to the famous lodge set deep in the African bush. Accommodation is in luxurious African-style rondavels, each containing a bedroom, two bathrooms, and views of the surrounding bush. After a leisurely lunch we have time to relax, with the likelihood of spotting elephant or stately giraffe striding close to our windows, or stroll through the grounds. Tea will be taken on the terrace before we depart on our first game drive. Transport is in open safari vehicle, expertly handled by our game ranger. The animals have grown accustomed to the daily drives and you can expect close proximity to lions and others of the big cat family, as well as elephant and rhino. As the sun sets, our ranger selects a suitable spot for us to enjoy a ‘sundowner’ before setting out once again in the dark for nocturnal game viewing with the aid of spotlights. We return to the lodge for dinner in a reed enclosed boma.
