If you are looking to expand on your wildlife encounters in South Africa after your hotel and bike tour, then the extension program in Hoedspruit is the perfect choice. It will not only provide you with the opportunity to sight the Big 5, but will also give you a good balance between organized activities and free time. The extension program takes place in close proximity to where the hotel and bike tour finishes. You are free to choose between a 3-star option (Buffelshoek or Ndzhaka Camp) and a 4-star option (Sausage Tree Camp).
The South African flora and fauna attracts millions of tourists from around the world each year, and rightfully so. Experiencing the wildlife in Africa up close and personal is an unforgettable experience. Who hasn’t wondered what it would be like to see the Big 5 (elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard) up close and personal in their natural habitat at home in Africa? This opportunity can be best lived out in the Greater Kruger National Park. This is where safari dreams become reality.
A transfer will take you from the last accommodation of your Hotel & Bike South Africa Safari Cycling tour to the camp site of your extension tour package. At around 2 pm lunch will be served. At 3:30 pm you will start your first jeep safari (approx. 3 hours). Afterwards, enjoy your evening around an open fire. Dinner is served at 7:30 pm.
You start the day early today. With a coffee and a light South African breakfast at 5 am, the sunrise jeep safari kicks off at 5:30 am. The best time of day to observe the bush wild life as it stirs from its sleep. After the early morning, there is enough time to relax at the campsite. In the afternoon, a second safari tour will take you in search of the Big 5.
Enjoy the incredible South African Fauna one last time on a morning jeep safari. After breakfast, a transfer takes you to the Hoedspruit Airport. From here, the itinerary is back in your hands and we say farewell and thank you for sharing this tour experience with us.
Buffelshoek and Ndzhaka are situated in the heart of the Manyeleti Game Reserve which shares unfenced borders with the Kruger National Park, the Sabi Sand and the Timbavati private nature reserves. Therefore both Ndzhaka and Buffelshoek provide a great retreat for the wild animals. Manyeleti is well known for sightings of the Big 5 and offers a truly unique African bush experience
If you prefer a touch of luxury, the small and luxurious Sausage Tree Camp in The Greater Kruger National Park comes highly recommended. Situated in the Balule Conservancy amid dramatic landscapes with rolling hills, valleys and vast plains, the view of uninterrupted bush all the way to the foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains is unparalleled.
Spanning 15 000 hectares of the pristine South African bush, Kapama offers the perfect sanctuary for a wide variety of wildlife. High in the treetops, accessible only by elevated wooden walkways, the old-world luxury tents of Buffalo Camp are the closest you’ll get to living alongside our wildlife. Kapama is a quiet and intimate lodge where you can absorb the surrounding peace. Each luxury tent features en-suite bathrooms and air-con, as well as additional blankets for cooler weather comfort.
