Trails and Wildlife of South Africa
Small Group Holiday
South Africa has been called “The world in one Country” and for good reason. This tour explores the varied northeast of the country through hikes in the rugged Drakensberg and walks and game drives in several reserves, including Kruger. During our game activities we hope to spot elephant, lion, rhino, leopard, giraffe and hippo and many smaller animals and birds. In addition we visit historic sites, craft markets and explore some of the finest scenery this country has to offer.

Adventure Coordinators insider tip:
My favourite time for hiking in this part of South Africa is the southern hemisphere winter - May through September. Earlier on in this season landscapes are still lush and green after the rains. Later on, landscapes turn brown and leaves fall off the trees, making wildlife easy to spot.
