Kruger Walking Safari and Beach

The perfect combination - the thrill of a safari followed by relaxation on the beach.

9 days from £2,645pp plus international flights.

An excellent combination of game viewing on foot, and leisurely days on the beach in South Africa.

  • Safaris from your luxury camp in a private area of Kruger National Park
  • Exciting guided walking safaris in Kruger
  • 4 nights in a gorgeous beach lodge on the KwaZulu Natal coast
  • Luxury thatched bush suite in the dunes, overlooking the Indian Ocean
  • Empty, stunning wild beach for miles
  • Seasonal turtle tracking

This promises to be an unforgettable week, combining 'big 5' game viewing, insightful walking safaris, driving through eSwatini and downtime on a superb beach in the renowned iSimangaliso Wetland Park.

Your safari destination is none other than Kruger, arguably the most famous national park in Africa. You will have an opportunity for a game drive with a great chance of spotting elephants, rhino, lions, leopards, buffalo, giraffe, hippos and much more of Kruger's exceptional wildlife.

Most of your time, however, will be spent on walking safaris. You will gain a new perspective on the natural world as you follow your guide through the bush, learning bush craft skills, interpreting signs and tracks and picking up important survival skills.

Next, you'll pick up a hire car and head to the KZN coast via eSwatini. A night on a nature reserve in this kingdom acts as a gentle introduction to the more relaxing part of your trip. Once at the coast you can enjoy a magical mix of coastal forests, bush, lakes, grasslands and gloriously unspoilt beaches. You can spend days by, in and on the water, sunbathing, swimming and snorkelling and taking a ride in the lodge's launch out beyond the breakers in search of dolphins and whales. On land you can accompany a guide on nature walks, go bird watching or kayak on Lake Sibaya a short drive from the lodge.

This all adds up to a hugely rewarding holiday and you'll come away not just with many happy memories but also with some new-found skills and knowledge.

Please note the minimum age for the walking safari is 12 years.
