Experience the thrill of being on safari, observing the ‘Big Five’ as well as zebras, giraffe and rhinos and be inspired by an authentically African atmosphere in the largest game reserve in South Africa.

Enjoy game viewing before returning back to Johannesburg, where you will visit the Panorama Route and view Gods Window, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and the Three Rondavels – all part of the World Heritage Blyde River Canyon.
