WILDLIFE TOURS

 

 

We visit places such as Moholoholo wildlife centre, Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre, Khamai Reptile Park and Blydepoort Dam.

Moholoholo is a wildlife centre which contributes to the conservation of endangered species, and undertakes the rehabilitation of injured, orphaned and poisoned wild animals and birds.

 

The HESC runs a successful breeding programme for severral endangered and vulnerable species. Following an introductory presentation, guests are taken in an Open Vehicle for a tour of the centre.

 

Khamai Reptile Park, a centre for reptile related research and public education. Home to many species of snakes, at Khamai guests will also see other reptiles, numerous amphibians and arachnids, many species of which are endangered.

 

After lunch guests board their boat on the Blydepoort Dam for a view of the mountains from the bottom of the Canyon. The 1.5 hour excursion in spectacular surroundings is not to be missed!! Game on the riverbanks is viewed from the boat, and the occasional hippo or crocodile may come past for a closer look at the visitors!

SCENIC TOURS

 

From Hazyview, the tour begins as it climbs towards the town of Graskop, and the southernmost point of the Blyde River Canyon. The Panorama Tours encompasses some spectacular scenery, with breathtaking views of the Blyde River Canyon, and out over the endless Lowveld beyond. We take guests along the edge of the escarpment, to look out points offering magnificent views, including God’s Window, Wonderview and the Three Rondawels. Along the route we visit the famous Bourkes Luck Potholes – deep cylindrical cavaties formed by thousands of years of water erosion at the confluence of the Blyde and Treur Rivers. Pilgrim’s Rest is well worth a visit. This old mining town was established during the heady days of the gold rush in the late 1800′s and the whole town is now lovingly preserved as a national monument.

 

At lunch time the tour will stop back in Graskop so that guests can have lunch at a restaurant, and if time permits, can spend a while browsing in local shops or along the pavements. Street vendors sell an amazing variety of goods – from nuts and fruit to beaded necklaces and carved wooden animals. Near Graskop, where numerous waterfalls tumble down the mountains, we will visit the beautiful Berlin Falls and Lisbon Falls on the way back to Hazyview.

BIG 5 SAFARI'S

 

Includes walking safaris in the Kruger National Park, Swaziland Day Tours, Elephant Back Safari's at Kapama and Day Safari Tours in the Kruger National Park.

 

Walking Safaris: We meet our guests at their hotel and take them to the Kruger National Park to meet the National Parks ranger who will accompany them and share his knowledge of the bush. After a short game drive to the walking area, guests are given an introduction to tracking, the medicinal uses of plants and trees, and animal and bird identification. Walks are conducted in an area renowned for the rhino population, so “Big 5″ sighting is a realistic possibility!

 

Swaziland Day Tours: The Kingdom of Swaziland is an absolute Monarchy, ruled by King Mswati III, and is famous for the ceremonial culture where old traditions and beliefs still govern every aspect of life. Swazi’s pride themselves on the warmth and friendliness that they extend to all visitors, and are well known for their skills as artists and craftsmen.

 

Elephant Back Safaris: We leave early in the morning to take our guests to Kapama Game Reserve, where, on arrival the elephant master introduces each elephant and talks about their personalities and behaviour. Guests are seated behind an experienced elephant handler, on canvas covered saddles which are comfortable for both elephant and rider.

 

Day Safari Tours: The Kruger National Park is South Africa’s largest game reserve, and one of the most respected in the world. Our highly experienced field guides are passionate about the bush, and they will share their knowledge of the 147 species of mamals, more than 500 species of birds and 336 species of trees which make this 2 million hectare space their home, with our guests.

NIGHT DRIVE TOURS

 

A night safari tour in the Kruger National Park gives guests an unforgettable evening in the bush. The spotlight on the open safari vehicle allows guests to see shy, nocturnal animals, seldom seen during the day. Dinner is a candle-lit barbeque buffet in the bush, accompanied by the sounds of the African bush at night, and illuminated by the stars of the African night sky. An armed ranger provides protection from any carnivores that may wish to join the feast.

CULTURAL TOURS

 

Shangana Cultural Village evening festival
Venture back in time and spend an evening in the Shangana Cultural Village with the residents of Shangana tribe. The traditional villages are set in a reserve of forest and grassland, overlooking the valley, and nestled in the shade of ancient umbhaba trees. We take our guests early enough to have some time to browse through the market where residents make and trade their craft. Guests will also meet the chief and some members of his extended family, and visit the Sangoma, an important personage in the village! As the sun sets behind the mountains, drums beat in the Chief’s Kraal, to announce the arrival of torch lit processions of choirs and dancers, who use song and dance to tell the story of their culture and history. The Royal feast follows, and is a celebration of traditional food served in open sided huts by Shangaan hostesses.
