Spectacular scenery, a stunning full-board safari stay from a luxe private lodge in Africa’s oldest nature reserve, plus Durban’s delectable beaches - includes game drives per day, breakfast, car hire and optional premium economy flights

Drakensberg

Your Drakensberg resort is located in Cathkin Park - an area that's ripe for exploration owing to its expansive countryside, heritage, arts and food scenes. Why not hop on a bicycle to explore the terrain on two wheels, enjoy a leisurely horseback ride, laze away a morning trout fishing in a local river or canoe on the lake - all of this is arrangeable or available from your resort itself. Alternatively, head to the forests to follow the thrilling zip line trails.

Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve

Located just outside the gates of the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve, your spectacular game lodge, Rhino Ridge, awaits. This is one of the oldest nature reserves in Africa, and your lodge is the only private lodge within it, giving you a unique perspective of this stunning park - the home of the rhino. You’ll find the densest population of white rhino on the planet here, living alongside African elephants, zebra, buffalo and lions - also known as the Big 5. Hopefully, you’ll get the chance to spot them all on your twice-daily game drives. Add to this bush walks, bird watching and a rejuvenating spa, and you’re in for a truly magical escape.

Durban

With the Indian Ocean lapping at its lovely golden beaches, you’ll exchange hiking boots and 4x4s for flip flops and catamarans in your next stop: Durban. Enjoy poolside sundowners while the Indian Ocean sky turns orange, or spend the evenings wandering the sands. If you feel the need to leave the loungers, Durban has a large collection of African art in its Baroque City Hall, and an understated food scene - don’t miss out on Bunny Chow, a traditional farmer’s meal of curry inside a hollowed-out bread loaf; now a Durban staple.
