THE AFRICAN COLLAGE
A Rich Tapestry of Landscape
panoramic 3400 kilometre 9-day South African sojourn departs annually
in May/June. Travel from Pretoria eastwards to Malelane, south to
Swaziland and Durban, west to Bloemfontein, then southwards again
through Port Elizabeth, Oudtshoorn and George to Cape Town. After an
early morning game drive through the Kruger Park, the train heads
southwards to Swaziland for an afternoon game drive. Continue into
Zululand for an early morning game drive in the Hluhluwe Game Reserve
and then on through KwaZulu Natal for an evening in Durban. During the
night we continue onto Bloemfontein, with a morning tour of the city.
The journey continues southwards overnight to Port Elizabeth, with a
morning visit to the Addo Elephant Park. An early morning departure
takes the train into Oudtshoorn for a visit to an Ostrich farm followed
by a spectacular rail descent down the Montagu Pass into George. After
a morning visit to Knysna the train sets off from George travelling the
scenic Garden Route through to Mossel Bay and Riversdale. The next
morning, after a visit to the KWV Brandy Distillery in Worcester, this
magnificent collage ends in Cape Town.
