This tour combines three of South Africa's finest safari areas, which is by far the best wild life and wilderness areas of South Africa, blended with the rugged beauty so synonymous with the African continent.
It incorporates the Kruger Park with it's amazing wildlife, Mpumalanga with mountains, valleys, waterfalls, pockets of primal forests, mangrove forests and sub-tropical vegetation, the Kingdom of Swaziland, one of only three sovereign Kingdoms left in Africa, and the diverse KwaZulu-Natal with habitats such as lakes, rivers, dune forests, beaches, mangrove forests.
We visit Hluhluwe-Imfolozi (Imfolozi) Park which is not only the oldest reserve in Africa, but also the place where the white rhino was saved from extinction. Today the park is the third largest in South Africa and the only reserve where you are virtually assured of good rhino sightings.
The Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park 2-day safari puts the emphasis on the wildlife of the Reserve where we spend both days in the park searching for wildlife. The region is also the home of the mighty Zulu's and the African Wildlife Experience offer some insight into their age-old culture.
This two day Imfolozi Safari introduces us to renowned Zululand.
We cruise on Lake St Lucia inside iSimangaliso world heritage site where we see an abundance of birdlife and hippos and crocs in their natural habitat.
The second day of this Imfolozi Safari is spent in search of the wildlife.
The Hluhluwe Imfolozi Park and Lake St Lucia introduce us to the Northern KwaZulu-Natal area which, within its geographical borders has arguably the greatest diversity of habitats in South Africa. These include open bushveld, coastal dune forests, lakes, rivers, mangrove forests, sand forest, subtropical marsh-lands and a magnificent coastline with endless, and in some areas completely deserted, sandy beaches.
The region is also the home of the mighty Zulus and we are introduced to their age-old culture when we visit an authentic Zulu village(Dumazulu Cultural Village).
At Lake St Lucia, we join a boat cruise on the lake to see a proliferation of bird life, crocodile and hippo in their natural habitat.

Taki Christodoulou, our experienced tour guide, led the Great Wildlife African Expedition tour on 2nd June to 7th June 2014. On their first day of the trip while visiting #hluhluwe #Imfolozi Game Reserve they had a rare sighting.
"While doing a game drive in the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve we came upon a lioness stalking a warthog.We watched her for over an hour as she stalked the warthog before attacking him and killing him. An incredible start to the 6 day tour."
An unforgettable experience for our guests, well done Taki!!
