At the heart of the Zulu Kingdom, a guide will show you around the oldest African reserve!

Departing from your hotel, you'll travel to the reserve in an air-conditioned vehicle. When you arrive, you'll be able to observe the wild animals within some fantastic scenic landscapes. The reserve is actively engaged in the protection of white rhinos, its successful work for this endangered species earning it international recognition.

On board your vehicle (minibus, van or saloon car according to the number of passengers), you will be able to see the famous "Big Five" animals: lions, leopards, African elephants, black rhinos and buffalo! Gaze upon their stunning natural habitat during lunch in a restaurant overlooking the site.

If you want, you can enhance your safari experience by taking the tour in an open-top vehicle (supplement of approximately 360 ZAR/$35, payable locally). This option enables you to get even closer to the wildlife!

At the end of this exotic excursion, you will be returned to your hotel.
