Mapungubwe & Northern Kruger

Where craggy sandstone cliffs loom over deep valleys, where an ancient civilisation once held sway over the far north, Mapungubwe is the centre of a world heritage site and a transfrontier national park with a diverse ecology and magnificent scenery.
Based in chalets within the park we explore the mystical landscape around the confluence of the Limpopo and Shashe Rivers, with game drives and visits to view sites.
Later we move to the Pafuri area in the far north of Kruger National Park where we stay in the privately owned Outpost Lodge. Here we experience the true wilderness of this exclusive and remote part of the African bush – complete with open vehicle game drives and expert bush guides.
Game viewing opportunities abound as our journey continues southward through the length of Kruger, with select overnight stops in the park. If you enjoy nature in all its facets, this safari is for you!

How active? ACTIVE. We visit key points in the veld where your guide will show and discuss interesting features. The walks required to get to these key points are usually fairly short, but often over rough sections, and up or down the occasional fairly steep slope. The walk up to the hill at Mapungubwe has over 140 stairs to negotiate. You need to be able to take this sort of thing in your stride to fully enjoy the tour.

Health

There will be time spent in malarial areas, and relevant prophylactics are recommended.
