The Trip in Detail

A closer look at what your holiday could be.

Day 1-4 Phinda Mountain Lodge/Phinda Game Reserve

Pick up your car rental in Richard’s Bay, and take the 2 hour drive up to Phinda Game Reserve. Phinda is located in northern Kwazulu Natal, and is one of the country’s best kept secrets when it comes to game viewing. Although small when compared to parks like Kruger, Phinda comprises 7 distinct eco systems and a wealth of mammal and birdlife.

Phinda is a great introduction to the wildlife of South Africa, and Mountain Lodge will provide spectacular views, luxury accommodation, exciting safaris and outstanding service and activities. Phinda’s great advantage is its location and access to a wide range of activities, including water-based (ocean safaris, watersports and turtle tracking) and bush walks, night drives, hikes and more.

Day 4-11 Thonga Beach Lodge/iSimangaliso Wetland Park

From Phinda you’ll head down to the incredible, unspoiled iSimangaliso Wetland Park for a week-long escape to Thonga Beach Lodge. Thonga’s location is secluded and quiet, and its pristine beach and coastal waters make for the perfect nature getaway.

Just 12 thatched huts make the lodge private and intimate, with 5 resting on the beach and the rest secluded in the forest. Spend your days on the beach, turtle tracking, swimming, snorkelling, diving and taking sun downer boat trips. The marine life is spectacular, and Sibbaya Lake has plenty of hippo and crocodile.

Thonga is accessible only by 4×4, so guests may choose to leave their vehicles at the Costal Cashew Factory and take Thonga’s transfer to the lodge.

Day 11-13 Oyster Box/Durban
