7 Day Tremisana/Pumusa Kruger Hluhluwe and St Lucia Safari

Viva Safaris is introducing a fantastic seven day safari package that takes in the best of Kruger Park and the Northern Natal game reserves including Hluhluwe-iMfolozi and iSimangaliso Wetland Park.

This is a UNIQUE product offered ONLY by Viva Safaris.

Note: Requires minimum of 4 persons per booking

DAY 1 : We collect you from your home/hotel/O R Tambo airport and drive along the Highveld grasslands to Dullstroom, quaint tourist town, where we have a lunch stop(own expense). After check-in at Tremisana Game Lodge, we board the rugged Landcruiser and go on a Sunset Game Drive. Enjoy an open-air BBQ at the famous Marula Boma. Dinner and overnight at Tremisana.

DAY 2 : An armed ranger conducts a Bush Walk along the mighty Olifants River. This has proved to be a highlight that affords you the opportunity to investigate wildlife spoor and scats not readily seen from a vehicle. Return to Tremisana for Brunch. After lunch and siesta, we go on a 4h Sundowner Game Drive. Dinner and overnight at Tremisana.

DAY 3 : After breakfast, board the Open Sided Vehicle and go on a full day safari in Kruger Park proper. Lunch(own expense) at Satara Camp. Return in the late evening to Tremisana for dinner and overnight.

DAY 4 : After an early breakfast, depart by 7h30 for the drive from Tremisana to Hluhluwe in Northern Kwa-Zulu Natal. Enjoy some excellent scenic drives. Dinner and overnight at the newly refurbished Pumusa Bush Camp, built in a luxuriant-vegetated Sand Forest.

DAY 5 : After breakfast, drive to nearby Hluhluwe Game Reserve for a full day of game viewing. We are practically guaranteed to see Rhino that have not been dehorned in Hluhluwe and neighbouring iMfolozi Game Reserve. These reserves are the oldest in SA (proclaimed in 1898) and were responsible for saving the White Rhino from extinction. Lunch will be enjoyed at an open picnic spot or hide. Dinner and overnight at Pumusa.

DAY 6 : After breakfast, drive to world-famous St Lucia. Visit the iSimangaliso Wetland Park that was listed in 1999 as SA’s very first World Heritage Site. It contains 3 major lake systems, 8 interlinking ecosystems, 700 year old fishing traditions, most of SA’s swamp forests and Africa’s largest estuarine system !  At St Lucia there is time for a swim in the warm Indian ocean. After a picnic lunch, we explore this amazingly quaint subtropical village. We drive to the Sunset Jetty and board our River Cruiser and search the estuary for hippo, crocodile and other wildlife species.. Dinner and overnight at Pumusa.
