Itinerary

Map Image
icon Day 1 : Panorama Route wonders

Location: O.R. Tambo

Accommodation: Resort, Forever Blyde Canyon

Meals: No Meals

You will begin the journey at a centrally located spot in Gauteng and drive through some of the most scenic areas of the Eastern part of South Africa. You will visit the intriguing museums and shops in Pilgrim’s Rest and then drive to view Pinnacle Rock and then to experience the amazing view from God’s Window. You will then visit the Berlin Falls, where numerous local arts and crafts are for sale. From here, you will visit Bourke’s Luck Potholes for lunch (own cost), and then head the Blyde River Canyon, where you will overnight in a chalet at the resort: Forever Blyde Canyon (or similar). Dinner at the restaurant.

icon Day 2 : Kruger National Park Game Drives and Safari

Location: Kruger National Park Boundary Road

Accommodation: bungalow

Meals: Breakfast

You will leave after breakfast to take a boat trip on the Blyde Dam. An interpretation tour will take you to the Kadishi Tufa waterfall and the Three Rondawels. An abundance of wildlife will keep you distracted while learning more about the natural history of the Blyde Canyon. The Kadishi Tufa waterfall, at 200 meters (around 660 feet) in height, is the second tallest Tufa Waterfall on earth. The waterfall’s formation strikingly resembles a face which is crying profusely, and is thus sometimes known as ‘the weeping face of nature’. Completing this, you will head to the heart of the Kruger National Park through the Orpen gate, watching game as you head to the Satara Rest Camp. (Lunch en-route not included, restaurants available) The Satara Rest Camp is situated in an excellent game viewing area, with the bush relatively open and the animals plentiful and diverse. The camp itself has a rustic charm, with the bulk of the accommodation set out in a series of circles. Satara is well wooded and the bird-life is prolific. At night the clink of fruit bats is fused with the chirping of cicadas and crickets. The calls of owls and night-jars add to the symphony that is punctuated intermittently by the whoop of hyena, the screech of jackal and the roars of lion. Enjoy a Sunset Game Drive which transitions into the night where you can see the nocturnal activities of Kruger's secretive creatures, and lasts at least 3 hours. Dinner at the restaurant follows. Overnight in a bungalow or cottage at the Satara Rest Camp, or similar.

icon Day 3 : Kruger National Park Game Drive

Location: Kruger National Park Boundary Road

Meals: Breakfast

Starting the game drive in our own vehicle early after coffee on the way out of the park, you explore every possible opportunity to view the spectacular wildlife scenery. Chances are excellent to spot a variety of some of the estimated number of animals: Lion, 1 620 – 1750, Leopard, 1 000, Cheetah, 120, Wild dog, 120, Spotted hyena, 5340, Elephant, 13 750, Burchell's zebra, 23 700 - 35 300, Hippopotamus, 3 100, Warthog, 3 100 - 5 700, Giraffe, 6 800 - 10 300, Buffalo, 37 130, Eland, 460, Roan antelope, 90, Sable antelope, 290, Greater kudu, 11 200, etc. (Brunch en-route, restaurants available) After a 150 km game drive, we return back to Johannesburg via Nelspruit (Mbombela).

Viaggio speciale in sud Africa

Non potevo fare scelta migliore, sia jacket che Simon le nostre guide sono stati molto bravi e professionali.

Abbiamo conosciuto, anche grazie alla loro premura e continua attenzione, un paese bellissimo con mille sfaccettature.

La scelta dei lodge e delle guest house è stata perfetta, il nostro pulmino è risultato molto comodo e confortevole per tutto il gruppo di 8 persone, ottima anche la scelta dei ristoranti con cibo fresco e buono.

I Safari che abbiamo fatto rimarranno sempre nei nostri ricordi, come i paesaggi meravigliosi della garden route e della wild coast.

Tutto è andato alla perfezione, hanno soddisfatto pienamente le nostre aspettative.

A chi volesse visitare il sud Africa consiglio vivamente di affidarsi all’agenzia Amatungulu e alle premure di Jacket.

I was amazed at how quickly he noticed and pointed out animals that I wouldn't have seen otherwise.

My advice is to remember to bring a good camera and a pair of binoculars on tour when you book with Amatungulu, because you'll see so much! I can't recommend them enough.

From the get go Jakes made it easy for me to plan the trip.

We had a group of 7 adults (all our kids are in their 20's) flying in from 3 different locations.

After confirming our accomodation in Joburg, we left it in Jakes hands.

The accommodation for all 3 nights was terrific, and we were blown away by the special dinner arranged for us in Kruger.

You cannot explain the feeling of sitting in the middle of a national park, with a beautifully set table, and a private dinner provided under the stars.

Jakes and Simon our guides were so knowledgable, and exceptionally patient with our group.

Making sure all our accommodations were acceptable, and our meals well planned, it was thoughtful touches such as fresh fruit for the car ride, providing binoculars, helping us take photos at just the right angles (lighting) and ensuring that 1 vegetarian was catered for that made our trip so amazing.

Nothing was too much trouble, including making arrangements for my sister who only booked 2 weeks before our tour started! We immediately booked a second tour with Jakes and Simon to do Soweto and Apartheid Museum, which is a testament to how much we valued and trusted them.
