A 2 Day Safari Expedition

A safari is about connecting intimately with nature. Glide over the Indian ocean on a microlight flight and observe the sea life before traversing through some of the 240 thousand hectares of pristine wilderness that is the UNESCO iSimangaliso Wetland Park on some pretty intrepid horses. Feel an interconnectedness to nature. The following day swap over to an authentic safari jeep with an experienced ranger and track Africa’s iconic Big 5. Leave transformed.
