Explore the incredible Kruger National Park, Swaziland, Kosi Bay and Zululand
Sample the best of two stunning southern African countries on an eye-popping tour like no other. From busy Johannesburg, travel into Kruger National Park for an out-of-this-world African safari and then into the Kingdom of Swaziland, with its friendly locals and verdant mountain ranges. Chill out on the beaches of Kosi Bay, a World Heritage site famous for its lakes, beaches, turtles and fish traps. Enjoy a homestay in the heart of Zululand, camp under the glow of a thousand stars and relax in the glamorous seaside city of Durban for a varied taste of awesome Africa.
Go on a safari through Kruger National Park, one of the largest game reserves in Southern Africa
Uncover the unspoilt wilderness of the Elephant Coast, a tropical paradise of crystal clear water, marshland, coastal forest and swamp
Visit the heartlands of the African Zulu and spend the night in a traditional homestay
Enjoy a hike through Hlane Royal National Park amongst antelope and zebra
While a homestay in Zululand is a unique and rewarding experience, the conditions are basic – foam mattresses on the floor, with up to six people (of the same sex) per room. Clean linen and pillows are provided.
Purpose-built overland vehicles are used for the duration of the trip. These multi-purpose trucks, equipped with large sliding windows, allow for excellent game viewing. There is no air-conditioning, however, so it can get hot and dusty inside.
The going can be slow over the long distances and often bumpy roads. A little bit of patience will go a long way towards your enjoyment of this beautiful land!
This is a participatory camping trip, so embrace the team spirit. You will be expected to set up and take down your own tent as well as assist with food preparation and cleaning.

Our Kruger & Coast trips score an average of 4.66 out of 5 based on 67 reviews in the last year.
Expect long days travelling, cold nights, mangled hands (from putting up and taking down that tent) only to be rewarded with spotting the big five, the small five, the ugly five, amazing sunrises, gorgeous sunsets, extraordinary landscapes. Africa is an adventure not a holiday, appreciated more when you are back in your own bed dreaming about your African encounter.
