KwaZulu-Natal is one of the hidden gems of the South African wildlife safari experience. You’ll get to visit this beautiful province as well as the Kingdom of the Swazis and epic Kruger National Park on our 6 Day Kruger, Swaziland and KwaZulu-Natal Safari.

We visit not only some of the most magnificent places in the country, such as the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, Kruger Park and the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve, but we also get to see mountainous landscapes and incredible views as we travel. This safari is definitely every wildlife enthusiast’s dream!

Vehicles Used On A Kruger, Swaziland and KwaZulu-Natal Safari

We’d like you to be as comfortable as possible when you travel to the various destinations on this safari, which is why we use a 12-seater bus to take you to and from the airport and an open safari vehicle for the game drives (unless otherwise stated). You’ll be able to spot the famous Big 5 and much more with ease!

Itinerary

Day 1: Gauteng to Kruger National Park

Our exciting Kruger, Swaziland and KwaZulu-Natal safari gets under way in Johannesburg – we do pick-ups and depart from there between 06:00 and 07:00 on Day 1. Our first stop on this journey is the Kruger National Park. To get there, we’ll pass beautiful, open landscapes as well as green, tree-covered mountains. The drive takes several hours so we do make a stop at some point (you’ll be able to grab some lunch, at your own expense) and we arrive at the park in the afternoon.

Your first Kruger wildlife safari is that afternoon/early evening, after you’ve had a chance to settle into your room and freshen up. Here, you’ll get your first chance to try and spot some of the Kruger Park’s majestic wildlife, while getting to know your guides and fellow guests.

In the evening, dinner is enjoyed in our dining tent, where the chefs will explain what’s on the menu, while you enjoy a fine glass of wine. Alternative drinks are also available for purchase at the shop at the camp, if you’d like to try something different. (Dinner Included)

Day 2: Kruger National Park to Swaziland

Our final morning in the Kruger National Park gets off to an early start as we embark on one last Kruger safari, eager to spot as much as we can before we leave. We’ll also enjoy breakfast as we make our way to the stunning and scenic Swaziland.

During the drive, you’ll get to see a mix of scenery, from breathtaking mountainous terrain to open fields, urban areas and more! We’ll stop for lunch en-route as well (own expense).

Your accommodation on this evening will be in one of Swaziland’s magnificent National Parks, offering you a unique and unforgettable lodging experience. Dinner gives you a chance to sample some delicious cuisine, ask your guide questions and chat to your fellow guests about your favourite aspects of the trip so far. (Breakfast & Dinner Included)

Day 3: Swaziland to Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve

You’ll get to rest a little longer on this day, before enjoying a tasty breakfast. Then we’ll leave this culturally-rich destination for South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal province. Passing open bush areas and aesthetically-pleasing hills and fields, our next stop is Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve’s Hilltop Camp.

It’ll soon be time to keep those eyes peeled and have your camera and binoculars ready as you search for all manner of wildlife on an afternoon safari. Following this, dinner will be served under the (hopefully) clear and starry African sky.

Day 4: A Day in Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve

This is the day where you’ll be able to make the most of your time in the reserve, by embarking on wildlife safaris in search of the famous Big 5 as well as giraffe, zebra, hippo, cheetah, kudu and a variety of birdlife, to name a few.

You’ll also get to join a Sunset Drive (after dinner), which will be conducted by a KwaZulu-Natal Parks guide. These drives usually take place in an open 4×4 vehicle and offers you a chance to see wildlife that mostly or only come out towards the end of the day. (Breakfast & Dinner Included)

Day 5: Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve to Dolphin Coast

On this day, there will be a morning safari, conducted by our guide and in a closed vehicle. Following this, we make our way to a place of miracle and wonder – the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. Made up of lake systems and ecosystems, and home to a variety of bird species, it’s here that we’ll get to discover one of South Africa’s most beautiful and unique Heritage Sites.

Adventure awaits with a two-hour Hippo and Crocodile Boat Cruise, which takes place along the estuary, in St Lucia. Hippos and crocs can be found around every turn and the cruise is a great way to get close to them, as well as to get to know the birds and wildlife that make the estuary their home. Be sure to bring your cameras along for this one.

We’ll grab some lunch in town (own expense) and continue along the breathtakingly-beautiful and blue coastline, towards the Dolphin Coast. And to end off the day – a delicious and authentic dinner of Indian-style curry, delivered to you, and a great night’s sleep in a comfy room, complete with an en suite bathroom. (Breakfast & Dinner Included)

Day 6: Dolphin Coast to Durban

Our day begins with a wholesome breakfast and perhaps a swim in the ocean or a walk along the shore. We’ll then make our way past evergreen, open landscapes towards King Shaka International Airport. Lunch, which we’ll stop for at some point along the drive, will be for your own expense. We should arrive at the airport between 12:00 and 14:00. (Breakfast Included)

If you’d like to extend your visit to South Africa and explore more of what this amazing country has to offer, why not ask one of our consultants about adding on a safari, like perhaps our Addo to Cape Safari?

Notes

It is important to note that this is not a private wildlife safari and there will probably be other guests joining you on the game drive vehicles, air-conditioned mini bus transfer vehicles as well as in the dining facility.

Please note that Sunset Drive times are subject to change and availability on the day. These drives are conducted by KwaZulu-Natal Parks, by one of their rangers and in one of their vehicles. There will most likely be other guests on this drive. Children under 3 years of age are not allowed on these open game drive vehicles.

Guests flying out of King Shaka International Airport on the last day are reminded to not book any flights earlier than 17:00 in order to give us enough time to get you to the airport. We recommend that you rather stay over in Durban if possible. Since we cannot guarantee our arrival time in Durban on the last day we will not be held responsible for reimbursements of flight tickets, should we arrive later than expected.

All passport and visa requirements are the guests’ responsibility. Should your passport and visas not be in order, we will assist with arrangements in any way possible to allow you to join us again on our return to South Africa, but any such arrangements will be for your own account.

Guest Reviews

Wonderful 3 Day Safari

I went on Safari with Outlook Safaris in June last year on part of a year out. Everything about the company was perfect, even before booking everything was very well taken care of. When I initially emailed with questions I was replied to very quickly and all the information I received was very useful, Robert was very patient with me. The drivers who picked me up in Jo’Burg were very friendly and professional and made the journey up to the Kruger Park very pleasant. I stayed in the most basic accommodation provided but it had all I needed including a fan and heater because the temperature varied so much. The Skukuza Park is stunning, with beautiful birds, baboons all wandering around. The game drives were amazing.

Awesome Experience

I just want to say that this was one of the most awesome experiences I’ve had. From the moment I first arrived until the sad last day I had to leave was amazing. Moss driving our group to Kruger National Park that first morning. Not sure if it was the early hour, but everyone was quiet and either looking out of the window, listening to their ipod, or getting some more sleep. I wasn’t sure what to expect. After our first stop for gas and snack some conversations started. By the end of the trip, I really missed seeing everyone every day and sharing those wonderful memories. I had such a good time building friendships and sharing laughs. I think I enjoyed making those new friends as much as seeing all of those wonderful animals in their own environment.

Highly Recommended

Both my husband and myself have traveled extensively and have had unquestionably one of the best experiences of our lives with Outlook Safaris. The first safari we took was the Classic 7 Day Kruger Park Safari, and this January/February we enjoyed the 5 Day Explorer Safari. Both safaris were wonderful and we were able to see many of the “harder to find” animals. The staff is enthusiastic about their jobs and it shows. Their excitement is only outdone by their knowledge of the bush.I would recommend also an overnight at Outlook Lodge on your return to Johannesburg where Chef and Manager Francois will pamper you with wonderful meals. The downy beds and intimate surroundings are refreshing after a soujourn in the bush. All in all, an experience never to be missed.

An Incredible Company

An incredible company. Debbie the guide and also game driver has a wealth of knowledge and passion for the wilderness like no other. Being a single female traveller, I felt completely safe. All the staff are friendly, the meals delicious and the experience is second to none! The game drive vehicles are large enough to feel safe but small enough to have an intimate experience with the animals.

4 Day Safari Wonder

We just finished a 4 day safari and had a wonderful time. Our guide Joostie was a riot. It was completely worry- free and that was exactly what we were looking for. Outlook Safaris took care of everything.
