Adventour Wildlife Safari South Africa Itinerary

Day 1

You will depart Johannesburg early morning from your place of accommodation and make your way through the lowveld to the uMkhuze Game Reserve. More than 420 species of birds can be found in this 38,500 hectare bird lovers’ paradise! Leopard, black and white rhino, elephant, giraffe, wild dog, cheetah, hyena, and various antelope are also to be seen.

Day 2

Travelling a short distance towards the Indian Ocean, you will arrive at the small town of Kosi Bay. An early check in at the accommodation assures you time enough for an unforgettable snorkeling experience in the crystal clear warm waters and a long awaited sun downer cruise to end off a spectacular day. The Kosi River's mouth is known as "the aquarium" because of the clarity of the water and the abundance of fish species making for a perfect snorkeling experience.

Day 3

You will depart in the morning for a short trip to your next overnight stop over at Sodwana Bay. Sodwana Bay is a jewel located on the east coast of South Africa. The warm waters of the Indian Ocean provide each traveler the thrill of scuba diving, big game fishing, turtle tours, and so much more. You can take a long walk on an unspoiled, protected beach or participate on any of the activities on offer for an additional cost.
