1. Tag: Pretoria - Hazyview

From Pretoria, South Africa’s Administration city - we travel via the panoramic region of Mpumalanga with its beautiful scenery and dramatic escarpment views, to South Africa’s famed Kruger National Park and spend the night outside the reserve. Fences between the National Park and surrounding private reserves were removed several years ago to form the Greater Kruger, an area of some 24000 sq. km. Wildlife is free to roam the whole enormous area and it has become incredibly diverse in both fauna and flora. From the dwarf mongoose to the ‘Big Five’, almost every major African mammal (148 species) is present. There is also prolific birdlife (over 505 species) and over 330 varieties of trees. This evening we immerse ourselves in the local culture and enjoy Shangaan tribal dancing and singing around an open fire to learn more about these fascinating people.

Fahrzeit: ca. 7 Std.
Fahrstrecke: ca. 410 km

Unterkunft: Numbi Camp

Verpflegung: 1x Abendessen

2. Tag: Hazyview - Krüger Nationalpark

Waking early, we board our 4x4 game viewing vehicles with a resident guide for an intense but rewarding day in Kruger National Park. The impressive atmosphere of the park enables you to see why it is held in such high esteem amongst visitors from all over the world. We game drive in the morning and afternoon in search for the abundance of wildlife including the ‘Big 5’ – Rhino, elephant, buffalo, leopard and lion together with a high density of other mammals and diverse bird species such as eagles, hornbills, vultures and bee eaters. We break during the middle of the day to enjoy the peace of the rest camp and wait out the hottest part of the day (when wildlife is usually less active). We then continue our game drive through the park exiting in the late afternoon and continue to our accommodation for the night.

Optional Activities:
Night Game Drive USD60

Unterkunft: Numbi Camp

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

3. Tag: Krüger Nationalpark - Praia do Bilene

Today, we leave the Greater Kruger area and cross picturesque landscapes to the Mozambique border.

NB: Border formalities entering Mozambique can be time consuming. We may be held here for several hours while the paperwork is completed. Your patience at such times and is greatly appreciated. Officials will work in their own time and we find the best way to proceed is to let them work at their own pace and wait patiently. Your tour leader will do most of the work, but he/she will be grateful for your understanding if things seem to be taking longer than they should.

Once formalities are complete we make our way to Bilene for our first night along the tropical coast. You’ll immediately notice the pace of the tour change in Mozambique. Travelling is generally slower and road conditions more demanding making for an excellent opportunity to take in the surrounding scenery and village life. Campsites are not as well appointed but compensate with amazing location and views. Towns and shops have fewer goods or less variety so it’s essential to pack must-have items before arrival to Mozambique. While this can sometimes be frustrating most travellers find they’ve settled into the surroundings and realise this is one of the more appealing and attractive aspects of their overland tour. Overlanding is an adventurous type of travel and these are ‘unconventional’ holidays. We are sure you will enjoy Mozambique but do try to warn you not to expect things to be the same as elsewhere in Southern Africa.

Bilene, also known as Praia do Bilene and was once called San Marthino is located 180km north of Mozambique and famous for the Uembje Lagoon (or San Marthino lake) where you can try out one of the best loved activities in Bilene – snorkelling! Our camp for the evening is located on top of the dunes overlooking the stunning lagoon itself. It’s here we spend the night lulled by the sound of the ocean and enjoy the fresh breeze as we unwind from our day.

Fahrzeit: ca. 10 Std.
Fahrstrecke: ca. 410 km

Unterkunft: Laguna Camp

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

4. Tag: Praia do Bilene - Inhambane

Today we travel along this scenic coast via Inhambane to Tofo where we will spend the next 2 nights. Tofo is a small beach town with lovely open beaches, where the pace of life slows allowing you to relax and soak up the atmosphere. There are many activities on offer such as horse riding, snorkelling and scuba diving. Whale Sharks and Manta Rays inhabit the coastline all year round but are in larger numbers in the summer months (November to March). Humpback whales usually arrive around mid-June and are present until mid-October. The natural vegetation of the coastal plain is dune forest, but this has largely been replaced by coconut palms, planted by the Portuguese and local Bitonga people to supply the thriving copra trade. There are some exciting bars and restaurants in the area - sample the local seafood, the area is famous for it - and the local beer (called ‘2M’) or else simply relax and enjoy a good read.

Fahrzeit: ca. 6.5 Std.
Fahrstrecke: ca. 360 km

Unterkunft: Campingplatz bei Fatima´s Nest

Today is a free day to enjoy the local tropical beaches and the many activities on offer. Nearby Inhambane has a rich history and offers a great opportunity to go out and explore the old city. Climb the ladder at the Cathedral of our lady of Conception Inhambane for fantastic 360-degree views of the surrounds. The local markets are also a highlight with fresh fish, seafood and farm produce on sale. You’ll soon see the mix of Arabic and African cultures that create a vibrant, eclectic style of its own.
If the delights of the ocean are your forte, then head out and explore the reefs and colourful marine life found in this warm watery haven.

Scuba Diving from USD80-120
Snorkelling trips from USD40
Quad Biking USD55

Unterkunft: Campingplatz bei Fatima´s Nest

6. Tag: Inhambane - Vilanculos

Leaving Inhambane we take the coastal route arriving at Vilankulo (or Vilanculos), the Gateway to the Bazaruto Archipelago. Named after a local tribal chief Gamala Vilankulo Mukoke, the town itself is only 5km long yet is a hive of activity, has a lively atmosphere and friendly people. On arrival, we gather our luggage and snorkels for the following day’s island trip and board our traditional dhow boat to our ‘rustic ‘bush camp. The beach camp is located on a remote stretch of the coast approximately 90 minutes sail from Vilanculos town itself. We arrive in the late afternoon and settle in to our beach camp for the next 2 nights.

Fahrzeit: ca. 6 Std.
Fahrstrecke: ca. 320 km

Unterkunft: Chigamane Camp

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

7. Tag: Vilanculos

After breakfast we take our dhow boat to Magaruque Island, the third Island in the archipelago and the closest to Vilanculos. Here you can enjoy the island at leisure, snorkelling, swimming, walking or simply enjoy lazing on the pristine beach. A delicious seafood lunch is included in our Dhow Safari. With its powdery-white beaches, turquoise waters, and superb all-year round climate, Magaruque is perfect to relax, unwind and explore the local marine life. We return to our beach camp in the late afternoon to overnight.

Unterkunft: Chigamane Camp

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

8. Tag: Vilanculos - Bandula Area

We bid our seaside camp farewell and head back to our truck and then inland of Mozambique where we stop for the night in the Bandula area near the Chicamba Dam. Our campsite is located within a 550-hectare conservancy. The dam is a favourite for bass fishing where a catch and release program ensures the fish are conserved and can continue to grow in number. There is also a local environmental centre that aims to educate the local school children in the importance of conserving the local fauna and flora.

We set up camp close to the dam and enjoy our last night in Mozambique before we cross the border into neighbouring Zimbabwe.

Fahrzeit: ca. 10 Std.
Fahrstrecke: ca. 510 km

Unterkunft: Campingplatz bei der Casa Msika Lodge

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

9. Tag: Bandula Area - Masvingo, Simbabwe

We depart early in the morning and cross the border into Zimbabwe and if time allows stop at the spectacular Birchenough Bridge (named after Sir Henry Birchenough). The bridge spans the Save River on its 400 km journey through Zimbabwe and Mozambique and is one of many scenic features of eastern Zimbabwe. We then make our way to Masvingo. Nearby is one of the most important archaeological sites in Southern Africa: the Great Zimbabwe National Monument. Dating back to 1200 AD this was once the home to an indigenous population of some 10,000 people. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the area holds special significance to the country which took its name. Legend says this was the city where the Queen of Sheba resided, and archaeological finds uncovered gold, coins and porcelain from as far afield as Persia and China, highlighting the importance of the city as a trading post.

We camp nearby for easy access and ample time to explore the ruins at leisure with a resident guide who will explain the significance, history and culture of the area. If you have the energy there is the opportunity to trek to the top of the Hill Enclosure to enjoy a wondrous African sunset with spectacular views of the surrounds.

Unterkunft: Burke's Paradise

11. Tag: Bulawayo - Matobo Nationalpark

We explore the Matobo National Park on our half day guided tour. The wind-sculptured Matobo Hills are the site of numerous Bushman paintings and the area holds a special cultural and spiritual importance to the indigenous people. The reserve also has a large concentration of the Black and White Rhino and providing it’s safe to do so our guides will lead us on foot to search for these magnificent animals. Approaching these massive beasts is a heart racing, breath-taking and memorable experience. At such times it may be comforting to remember that rhinos are herbivores. The park also has a dense population of leopard and black eagle and we hope to catch sight of either (or both) of these creatures. We also keep a look out for giraffe, zebra, ostrich and a variety of antelope and buck species.

Note: There is an option to upgrade to a full day Matobo tour to include various historical sites. The price is listed in the optional excursions and can be arranged with your crew on the day.
The wind-sculptured Matobo Hills are home to numerous Bushman paintings of which we get to visit on this optional full day tour. The hills are also home to the grave site of Cecil John Rhodes who chose this as his burial place owing to the intense natural beauty and startling views from the hills. His grave can be visited at World’s View - a place of continual debate owing to his involvement in claiming the land and its people for Queen & Country in colonial times.

Optional Activities:
Upgrade to full day tour including Bushman paintings, historical tour and Cecil Rhodes Grave USD55

Unterkunft: Burke's Paradise

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

12. Tag: Bulawayo - Hwange Nationalpark

Today we leave the picturesque Matopos area and head for the world-famous Hwange National Park. This is Zimbabwe’s largest and best-known park and was (in the early 19th century) the royal hunting grounds of the Ndebele warrior-king Mzilikazi. In 1929 it was set aside as a National Park for the benefit of all Zimbabwe’s peoples. The park covers an area of over 14,600 sq km and is particularly known for its elephant but contains over 100 mammal species including Africa’s “Big 5" (leopard, lion, elephant, rhino and buffalo), as well as giraffe, cheetah, gemsbok and the brown hyena and abundant bird species. Hwange is also known for its population of the Wild (Painted) Dog. Late in the day we take a locally guided open vehicle game drive and hope to glimpse some of the wildlife in the park before returning to camp for overnight.

Fahrzeit: ca. 7 Std.
Fahrstrecke: ca. 330 km

Unterkunft: Hwange Rest Camp

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

13. Tag: Hwange Nationalpark - Victoria Falls, Simbabwe

Leaving the wilderness of the Hwange National park, we make our way to Victoria Falls, where we have the opportunity to enjoy the spectacular ‘Falls’ themselves and the mighty Zambezi River. The Zambezi boasts one of the world’s highest rated rivers for best white river rafting with its many challenging as well as novice rapids. After our visit to the falls there are many optional activities to do and you will have the opportunity to enjoy these at leisure. Explore the colonial town on foot and visit the local trading markets. Some choose to cross the border for a day to visit into the neighbouring Zambia town, Livingstone; or take a leap of faith bungee jumping to the foot of the falls. From game walks, helicopter flips or jet boating to name a few, Victoria Falls will capture and fulfil your imagination, validating the myths of the African spirit.

N.B: For the sake of practicality, meals in the Victoria Falls area are at your own discretion. This allows you to take on activities (some of which include lunch) without having to head back with the group at mealtimes.
