This self-drive holiday is the perfect introduction to South Africa's sensational wildlife and stunning coastline and scenery.
Your journey will take you from the city of Durban on South Africa's East Coast, all the way up the coastline towards Mozambique. Enroute you will pass through the independent kingdom of Swaziland and conclude with a Big 5-safari in the Kruger Park after an exploration of the surrounding waterfalls, sweeping valleys and sheer cliffs of the Panorama Route (in the province of Mpumalanga).
Staying in comfortable 4 or 5 star accommodation throughout, you can expect incredible scenery from coastal forests, unspoilt beaches and spectacular lakes, to the Blyde River Canyon and the typical safari landscape of the South African bushveld. There is so much to do from snorkelling, scuba diving, kayaking and boat trips to game drives and forest walks as well as plenty of opportunities for relaxation. Tick off wildlife sightings as you travel, from hippos and crocodiles in St Lucia to elephants, lions, buffalo and leopards many many more in the Kruger Park.

They will guide you on the best time of year to travel, select the best value destinations and secure the little ‘add-ons’ that will make your tailor-made trip that extra bit special.
