Big Five South African Guided Safaris Tours

 

Day 1 : Hluhluwe uMfolozi Park – Hilltop Camp

A representative from Far and Wild Safaris will collect you after your breakfast from your overnight accommodation in Durban, or on arrival at the King Shaka International Airport by a representative from Far and Wild Saaris and drive the scenic Dolphin Coast and into rural Zululand, to the Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park, a Big 5 game reserve, where you would spend two nights at Hilltop Camp, which is located inside the game reserve. The accommodation at Hilltop Camp is in brick under thatch chalets, each bedroom has its own private bathroom (bath with shower, hand-basin and toilet) en suite. The chalets are equipped with a fridge and tea station. Your game viewing commences immediately upon entering the gates into the Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park and on the drive to Hilltop Camp.

This first evening you go on a sunset drive in an 'open game-viewing vehicle' with staff from KZN Wildlife, the conservation organisation managing this game reserve. The night drive improves on ones chances of seeing some of the nocturnal species, such as leopard, lion, hyena, genet, bush babies and the other nocturnal species such as owls and nightjars. You also get to see some of the diurnal animals, with their eyes lighting up in reflection to the spotlight.


Day 2 : Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park – Hilltop Camp

Day two will be spent on extended game drives in our tour vehicle, to various areas of the Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park. With an early start, to make the most of the day and to possibly chance upon a roadside kill, or nocturnal predators returning to their day-time lair.

White rhino, giraffe, buffalo, wildebeest, zebra, warthog, baboon, vervet monkey, and antelope such as impala, nyala and kudu are seen frequently, with the possibility of seeing elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, Black rhino, hippo, crocodile and hyena. Antelope such as red duiker, steenbuck, waterbuck, bushbuck and then the rare Samango monkey and wild dog are sighted much less frequently.

Day 3 : Ithala Game Reserve – Ntshondwe Camp

After breakfast and another game drive, we make our way to the Itala Game Reserve, arriving at Ntshondwe Camp in time for lunch. Ithala is an ideal haven for a large variety of birds and animals. Ithala's big game species include elephant, white and black rhino, buffalo with giraffe fairly numerous, consequently chosen as Ithala Game Reserve's logo. The absence of lion makes for a relaxed air amongst the wildlife, such as the zebra and a wide variety of antelope. These include impala, blue wildebeest oribi, red hartebeest, eland, kudu, waterbuck, tsessebe, common and mountain reedbuck, steenbuck and grey duiker. Predators which are present but not often seen are leopard, caracal, spotted and brown hyena and the termite eating aardwolf.

Day 4 : Nkomazi Game Reserve – Komati Tented Camp

Breakfast and then we make our way north to the Nkomazi Private Game Reserve, arriving in time for lunch and your afternoon/evening game drive in 'open Safari vehicles'. The Nkomazi Game Reserve has a very wide diversity of species - including lion. The Komati Tented Lodge is 'Out of Africa' styled luxury tented accommodation with five star amenities on offer. Each tent has an extra large king-size bed, cooling or heating, an en-suite shower, a vintage outdoor bath on the private expansive teak sun deck with a plunge pool. What about a treatment at the River Retreat Spa (own account) to rejuvenate and relax.

Day 5 : Nkomazi Game Reserve – Komati Tented Camp

Nature lovers will be able to share in the many wonders of Nkomazi - its diversity of wildlife, habitat, along with its natural scenic splendour and interesting geological features. The Game Reserve represents a range of Africa's biomes, able to support wildlife suited to the high-lying grasslands and those that prefer the low-lying bushveld areas. Game viewing is carried out early mornings and late afternoons into the evening, guided by experienced rangers. Traversing through the reserve, the wildlife is interesting in its wide diversity. The game drives last 3 - 4 hours, with a coffee stop in the morning and a sundowner drink stop, normally at a vantage point overlooking one of the many beautiful vistas, at sunset.

The night drives are normally conducted en route back to the lodge after the afternoon game drive, where the focus shifts to the nocturnal species, sought out with the use of a spotlight. It is always advisable to take a hat and warm clothing, even in summer, layering is the answer. In winter, a warm jacket, beanie, scarf and gloves are recommended.

Between the meals and guided game drives, your time can be spent reading, enjoying Spa relaxation treatments, sun-bathing, swimming and indulging in the wholesome Lodge cuisine.
