4 nights Timbavati | 1 night Hazyview | 2 nights Victoria Falls
I cannot say enough about how well things worked out. I am so happy with my trip itinerary. The Simbavati River Lodge was amazing! The accommodations at the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge were also very nice. The Sunset Terrace overlooking the waterhole was great. I was fortunate enough to do a morning bush walk and saw a herd of buffalo up close.
Overall I’m completely happy with all the elements of this vacation. Gail – thank you once again.
Upon arrival at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, you will be met and assisted through to domestic departures for your flight to Hoedspruit. You are met at Hoedspruit Airport and are transferred by road to the Timbavati Game Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger National Park. You have time to settle in at your lodge before you set off on the afternoon game drive.
The Timbavati forms part of the 2 million hectare Greater Kruger National Park. It was the first private game reserve to be incorporated into the Kruger National Park and is part of one of Africa’s most innovative conservation partnership agreements. The Timbavati is 14 700 hectares (36 300 acres) and shares an unfenced boundary with Kruger National Park. Track the Big Five, as well as a rich variety of other game such as antelope, zebra, warthog, giraffe and hippo, in the company of an armed ranger and local Shangaan tracker. Bird viewing is spectacular, with over 360 recorded species including various eagles, vultures, kingfishers, woodpeckers, buzzards, herons, egrets, owls, weavers. The Timbavati is also home to the world-famous “White Lions of Timbavati”.
After your morning game drive, you are transferred by road to your lodge in Hazyview in the Mpumalanga Lowveld. The rest of the afternoon is at leisure to relax in the gardens of your lodge.
This morning you are transferred to Nelspruit Airport for your flight to Victoria Falls. Upon arrival at Victoria Falls Airport, you are transferred to your hotel.
Besides being one of the seven natural wonders of the world and a World Heritage Site, Victoria Falls is the unchallenged adventure capital of Africa with more than 50 activities available.
The Victoria Falls is considered to be the largest waterfall in the world. See the mighty Zambezi River as it thunders over the 1700 metre wide Victoria Falls and plunges 100 metres into a narrow gorge below. The great columns of spray rising from the tumultuous falls can be seen from 80 kilometres away on a clear day. If you are lucky enough to be there at full moon, a “moonbow” can be seen in the spray instead of the usual daylight rainbow.
Today is at leisure until you are transferred to Victoria Falls Airport for your flight to Durban via Johannesburg.
