Southern Sky Adventures: Safari

TRAIN & GAMEExperience the diversity of the Kruger Park, Mkhaya in Swaziland and Hluhluwe Nature Reserve in Zululand and wind your way from Pretoria to Durban through some of the most spectacular scenery South Africa has to offer. Your special journey begins as soon as you board The Pride Of Africa in Pretoria. This charming train departs in the morning and slowly meanders through the majesty of Mpumulanga with a short stop in Witbank. It then descends the escarpment between Belfast and Waterval Onder, taking you through the Drakensberg and what is surely the most spectacular sundowner scenery in South Africa.

The following morning enjoy a leisurely breakfast as the train meanders along the border of the world-famous Kruger Park. Lunch is served in the dining car as the safari continues south towards Swaziland for an afternoon game drive in the Mkhaya Game Reserve followed by a memorable candlelit dinner in the pristine river setting of Stone Camp.

After dinner the train will travel south to the village of Hluhluwe in Zululand. Starting early once again, you are assured of seeing a wide variety of game on a morning game drive through the scenic Hluhluwe Nature Reserve. The Pride of Africa then departs mid morning and winds its way through the lush cane fields and rolling hills of KwaZulu Natal, to arrive in Durban by late afternoon where this scenic safari ends
