IMPORTANT CHANGES TO THE ITINERARY FOR THE KRUGER & COAST 22 DECEMBER 2012 DEPARTURE
In order to avoid busy places in peak periods and improve the enjoyment of passengers on this departure we have had to change the order of the current itinerary. On Day 4 we will be heading straight to our Mozambique Beach Camp for 2 nights, then on to Swaziland/Hlane NP for 1 night, before making our way to St Lucia on Day 7. The rest of the itinerary will continue as normal.
No included activities will be affected by this change and the accommodation standard will remain the same for these nights. We will no longer make use of 4x4’s to transfer us from the border to Ponta Malongane, as we will be able to do this with our own truck. However, we will now also make a ferry crossing in Mozambique.
The new itinerary will be as follows:
Day 1: Johannesburg
Days 2-3: Kruger NP
Days 4-5: Mozambique Beach Camp
Day 6: Swaziland/Hlane Royal NP
Day 7: St Lucia Estuary
Day 8: Zululand
Day 9: Durban
Please note that border crossings for this departure will now be as follows:
Entry into Mozambique: Lebombo Border Post (Day 4)
Exit Mozambique: Lomahasha Border Post (Day 6)
Entry into Swaziland Lomahasha Border Post (Day 6)

Kruger & Coast SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Begin this amazing adventure in the sprawling city of Johannesburg.
Travel the famous Panorama Route and take in rugged views from the breathtaking Blyde River Canyon. The African safari then begins in earnest, searching for the iconic Big Five on a game drive through Kruger National Park. When dusk settles, choose to see what happens in the golden grasses after dark on an optional night safari.
Cross the border into the Kingdom of Swaziland and visit a local village to learn about Swazi culture, customs and beliefs. In the afternoon, visit Hlane Royal National Park and track rare rhinos in the scrub.
Head to the coast for the relaxing beach holiday leg of the tour. Mozambique is a wonderful place to go scuba diving or snorkelling and discover colourful underwater worlds, take a dolphin spotting cruise or stay onshore and explore vibrant markets. Chill out on the beach, soak up the warm waters of the Indian Ocean or wash down a meal of fresh seafood with a cold beer.
Home to thousands of birds, mammals and reptiles, the diverse ecosystem of St Lucia Estuary provides plenty of opportunity for bird watching and animal spotting.
Travel into the heart of Zululand district and be treated to traditional food and rousing song and dance on a homestay.
The Kruger and Coast tour ends beachside in decadent Durban. Stay longer and discover endless things to do in Durban such as trialling the city's glamorous social scene, shopping malls and golden beaches or exploring the juxtaposition of Muslim and Hindu architecture in the colourful Indian quarter.
