Kruger Park & Mozambique Tour – 10 Days (B 10)

This tour of  the Kruger National Park and Mozambique is offered as camping with an option to upgrade.

The tour offers a wonderful combination of game viewing and sandy white beaches. The first few days are spent in South Africa’s famous Kruger National Park followed by days spent relaxing and soaking up the sun on some of Africa’s most beautiful beaches.
The Mozambique coast faces the Indian Ocean and because of its climate, warm waters and vast beach area, is rich in many marine species, some of which are unfortunately in danger of extinction. The sandy beaches and dunes are covered with low rough vegetation.

Day 1: Kruger National Park (South Africa)

Departing early from Johannesburg & Pretoria we head off the plateau towards Mozambique to the town of Nelspruit to meet up with fellow travellers and to enjoy a leisurely breakfast. From here we head north, making our way to the Kruger National Park.

Once inside the Kruger Park we will be on the lookout for wildlife en route to our campsite. After setting up camp you will have a chance to relax for a couple of hours before heading out on an evening sunset drive with your experienced Kruger guide. This drive lasts between 3 and 3.5 hours, which gives you the opportunity to see plenty of wildlife. This is a great opportunity to see nocturnal animals not normally seen during the day game drives.

On your return your guide will have dinner ready for you.

Your guide will organise a boat trip for you to the beaches of the Indian Ocean, and your local guide will then take you for a walk along the beach where you may have the opportunity to observe the Hawksbill and Green Turtles, which make the Bilene area their home all year round. The rest of the day you can familiarise yourself with the local fisherman and maybe even go searching for prawns with them. This is an excellent time to immerse yourself in their culture and get to know how the locals live. There is a local market where you can find an assortment of curios, and a walk through the town is a must.
