WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Khaki Fever organised us the most exceptional honeymoon in Southern Africa. It was everything we had hoped for. We had excellent wildlife viewing, and enjoyed peace and quiet in the beautiful, luxurious lodges that Julie chose for us. Everything was just perfect.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Our party of seven first-time visitors to South Africa was privileged to have the expert help of Julie from Khaki Fever Safaris to craft our first ever safari in Africa. Julie ensured we had a most memorable and enjoyable experience of the African bush which we could easily have missed out on – including full day Kruger safaris with a very enthusiastic, knowledgeable, experienced guide. We saw many different species including the big 5 at close range in the most beautiful settings imaginable. Our lodge was superb with everything we could want, and with it’s own range of “plains game” which greeted us on arrival – a most wonderful introduction to our African stay. Our trip also included a Panorama Route Tour with the Magnificent Blyde River Canyon.  Many thanks Julie for organising a perfect trip in every way which totally exceeded our expectations!

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Julie and the team at Khaki Fever Safaris did the most fantastic job of organising a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me and my friends when we visited South Africa. Julie understood our brief completely, and provided a great selection of offerings, tailored to our group and was very prompt at getting back to us with any questions we had. The option we chose was absolutely perfect – beautiful accommodation in a tranquil setting surrounded by so many gorgeous animals, delicious meals, fantastic drivers and guides and wonderful day trips to Kruger National Park and surrounding areas. Right from the moment we arrived in South Africa, we felt so welcome – from a handwritten note and gorgeous stainless steel drink bottle gift from Julie and the team, to her checking in along the way to make sure we were having a wonderful time. Thanks so much again – we can’t wait to come back again one day!

14 DAYS

South Africa | Swaziland

 

The eastern part of South Africa is a hotspot for any nature-loving traveler! This region also enjoys a slower, calmer pace – compared to the Garden Route, there are fewer people, less development, and a more “raw” and natural feel. An ideal place to disconnect from your busy life and just relax. Visit diverse ecosystems (and cultures), and find yourself in true adventure mode as you experience the safari of a lifetime in Kruger, explore new cultures and crafts in Swaziland, unwind on remote beaches in Kosi Bay, and visit the lush, sub-tropical private reserve of Phinda, where you might be luckily enough to see cheetah and the critically endangered black rhino.

This is simply an example itinerary that can be tweaked and changed to suit your needs. This is also why we don’t put prices on our itineraries – we specialize in tailor-making our trips for each individual client. If you like the sound of this itinerary, then send us a direct email enquiry, or fill out the detailed enquiry form below.

TIP

Going on safari means early mornings (this is when the animals are most active), so although you may struggle to get out of bed at 5:30am, it really is worth it! Besides, we’ve designed this itinerary in a way that you get some time to rest and sleep-in in the middle of your trip (Kosi Bay), before your next safari adventure in Phinda! So, don’t lose too much sleep over the early morning starts when in Kruger.

THE DETAILS

15 days (including final travel day)

Day 1-4: Greater Kruger National Park

After your flight lands in Hoedspruit – the gateway to the Kruger National Park – you will be transferred to your exquisite bush camp or lodge inside the park. You’ll spend 4 nights in the famous Kruger – one of the most beautiful and biodiverse places on Earth! See the many different habitats and animals (including the Big 5) that make Kruger so exceptional. Activities include game drives and bush walks, or simply look out for elephants and various antelope visiting your camp.

Day 5-6: Swaziland

Travel into the tiny Kingdom that is Swaziland. You’ll immediately notice that you’re in a different country. Spend a night soaking up some history and culture in a beautiful, colonial stone home that’s over 100 years old. This boutique guest house is nestled in an indigenous forest in a small nature reserve, and it’s where Swaziland’s conservation efforts were born. Travel through the arty region of Malkerns – visit craft shops selling locally made decorative candles, basket ware and batik work.

Arrive at one of Swaziland’s most beautiful parks in in the afternoon, famous for its thriving rhino population. Here you’ll stay in 4-star luxury where open-walled rooms expose you to the pristine forest around you. Enjoy a truly unique experience – go on a cycle safari with your expert guide and get close to rhinos, giraffe and antelope! Spend the evening around the “bush TV” – a roaring camp fire, and enjoy a delicious, traditional dinner.

Day 7-9: Kosi Bay

Travel back into South Africa to the remote and undeveloped area of Kosi Bay in northern Kwa-Zulu Natal. This wild coastline is sandwiched between dense coastal forest and big seas; and feels a world away from the rest of South Africa. Take some time out from the safari scene on Kosi’s kilometers of pristine, deserted beach, or plunge into the Indian Ocean for some scuba diving or snorkeling. Enjoy the peace and quiet of the indigenous forests around you; or explore the bird-rich estuary by kayak.

Day 10-12: Phinda Game Reserve

This private, luxury game reserve just 2 hours south of Kosi Bay is home to the Big 5 and a spectacular array of birdlife. The sub-tropical climate gives it a whole different look and feel to the Kruger. Enjoy 3 nights in this exceptional reserve and keep your eyes open for cheetah, rhino, wild dog and lions! Alternatively, stay in the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve, a more affordable option for those traveling on a tighter budget.

Day 13-14: Umhlanga

End your fantastic safari off with a couple nights in the bustling, exciting beach resort town of Umhlanga. Soak up some sun on the golden beaches, try your hand at surfing, or enjoy the many restaurants and the holiday vibe.

Day 15: King Shaka International Airport, Durban

After breakfast, prepare to head to the airport for your flight home, or extend your trip and visit Zimbabwe, Botswana, Zambia, or Mozambique!
