Sept 19, 2013: Travel from More Quarters to Cape Town Airport
All aboard, Flight SA 8663 to Kruger Mpumalanga departing! Today, we’re moving from Cape Town to the Manyeleti Reserve. Literally, “place of the stars,” Manyeleti will shine brighter with an infusion of Sweeties at it’s luxury tented camp, Honeyguide Mantobeni, where we’ll spend three nights enjoying top-of-the-line tented rooms,
all-you-can-eat-and-drink, amazing service and prime Big 5 viewing from best-of-class safari vehicles. Lunch and dinner not included on travel days. Otherwise, all your meals and beverages are included (except top shelf and imports). Complimentary laundry service.
Sept 22, 2013: Travel from Honeyguide to Lion Sands in the world famous Sabi Sand Game Reserve. It’s raining elephants, hallelujah! You don’t get much better than a luxury, all-inclusive chalet where you have a 100 percent chance of seeing an elephant or a rhino and an 80 percent chance of seeing all the Big 5 in one place. Plus I used the words “luxury” and “all-inclusive,” so you know you’re in for a treat. We’ll spend three nights enjoying the first-class service and animal viewing. Lunch and dinner not included on travel days. Otherwise, all your meals and beverages are included (except top shelf and imports). Complimentary laundry service.
Sept 25, 2013: Head home or extend your stay
All good things must come to an end, but not before an early morning game drive followed by breakfast. After our breakfast, we’ll take the scenic route to Kruger Mpumalanga where we’ll fly to Johannesburg for more adventures or a long flight home. Don’t worry, you’ll dream about elephants the whole way back. You’re going to love the elephants. They are like giant dogs, except you can’t pet them.
We’ll offer two ways to extend your trip: A two-day Johannesburg city tour, where you can explore Soweto Township and visit the Apartheid Museum and / or three nights at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. C’mon, you know you want to say you went to Zimbabwe. It’s so fun to say. Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe. Pricing and details to be announced.
