Day 2 - Lagoon Walk. Drive to the Drakensbergs. Walk to Dorree Falls

Our first gentle walk begins near our hotel. Known as the Lagoon Walk, the path starts as a wooden boardwalk then cuts through a section of coastal forest down to the beach. As this is a nature trail many of the trees are labelled. (Look out for the 500 year old white stinkwood tree!). If you are lucky you may also catch glimpses of bushbuck, duiker and other small animals and birds that the forest is home to. On returning to our hotel we head by minibus towards the Drakensberg Mountains - approximately a three and a half hour drive. Our base for the next three nights is Didima in Cathedral Peak Valley, situated in the uKhahlamba Drakensberg National Park and part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Maloti- Drakensberg Park. Cathedral Peak (3304m) is a distinctive free-standing mountain with unforgettable views down over the region. After settling into our chalet style lodge accommodation we set out to start exploring the area, following a walking trail along a river then a stream to Dorree Falls. Nearby we climb a long series of steps to a local cave still showing the rock art of the ancient San people who once lived in this region. Our first walk today is five kilometres and takes approximately two hours, along a flat coastal path. Our second walk to Dorree Falls is five and a half kilometres, also taking two hours. The approximately total ascent and descent is approximately +/-310m.

In the afternoon we have a shorter walk from the lodge via local landmarks: Lower Valley, Neptunes Pool and Marble Baths. Our morning walk is 15 kilometres and takes approximately four hours.

Here we will learn about events that took place during the war between the Zulu and Voortrekker Boers, particularly the battle fought on this spot on 16th December 1838. Today 16th December is commemorated as the 'Day of Reconciliation'. Later we drive approximately another two and a half hours to Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Reserve.

Day 6 - Walking safari and game drive in Big Five Game Reserve

Waking up early to the sounds of the bush we spend today finding out more about the magnificent animals that call this park home. In group of a maximum of eight visitors we join the wardens for a walking safari, looking for tracks and signs of animals. We also travel further into the park, through the dry grassland and woodland, on a game drive in an open vehicle hoping to see the famous Big Five: lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino. This reserve is at the forefront of conservation and is credited with saving the black and white rhino, whose future is still uncertain, from certain extinction. Today's walking safari is approximately seven kilometres and takes one and a half to two hours through uneven dry terrain.

Local optional excursions include an estuary cruise, and a night game drive in the nearby wetland reserve.

By the sea there may also be hippos and crocodiles, as well as pods of dolphin and in season humpback whales and loggerhead turtles. Game fishing is popular due to the presence of fish such as marlin. iSimangaliso Wetland Park is a World Heritage Site and the third largest protected area in South Africa, with different ecosystems: swamps, lakes, beach, coral reef, wetlands, woodlands, coastal forests, grasslands uniquely existing side by side. At Cape Vidal we have a picnic lunch but be aware that the local monkeys may be eyeing up your food!

Trip information

Country information

South Africa Holidays & Tours

Climate

Mild throughout the year and can thus be visited year round. The Western Cape has a Mediterranean-type climate, with warm, dry summers and cold winters with rainfall. Summer runs from November to March, with temperatures averaging 22oC to 34oC. The months of April and October are generally warm and sunny. Winter is also a good time to visit as towns and sites are not so crowded and the countryside is more verdant, but it can be cold. Additional information and climate charts can be accessed at http://www.explore.co.uk/weather. Seasonal weather patterns can be unpredictable. Up-to-date information on the weather worldwide can be found by following the BBC weather link on this page.

Optional activities

St. Lucia: Boat trip on Lake St. Lucia R220; Full day Cape Vidal excursion (includes lunch) R695; St. Lucia night drive to spot turtles (Nov-Mar) R950; Whale watching (June-Nov) R960 pp; Night game drive in St Lucia Wetland Reserve R485. Please note all above activities are dependent on minimum numbers.

Clothing

For walking: Bring light, windproof water proofs and layers for warmth as the weather conditions in the mountains can be changeable. It can also be cool in the evenings. Wicking shirts are recommended as a base layer, and walking trousers are preferable to trousers of heavier material such as jeans. General: Clothing should generally be lightweight for the day. However warmer layers and long trousers may be needed at nights and in the mountains which can be cold, especially from May to August. Avoid brightly coloured clothing for game viewing. You may also wish to bring a swimming costume.

Footwear

We recommend you bring walking boots with ankle support- leather or fabric are both fine. Make sure that your boots are worn-in and comfortable before the start of the trip. Also trainers or closed sandals for relaxing and general wear (open toe sandals can only be worn in some places). We suggest that on international flights you either carry your walking boots in your hand luggage or wear them - should your luggage be lost or delayed, your own boots are the one thing that will be irreplaceable.

Luggage

20kg

Luggage: On tour

Bring a tough soft bag, holdall or rucksack that can be easily loaded into our vehicles, and a large enough daypack to carry items needed on our hikes and game drives.

Equipment

For walking: Your day pack should be large enough to carry your water bottle, waterproofs, warm layers, snacks, camera, etc. You may also wish to bring walking poles. General equipment: Bring a torch, sunhat, sunscreen, sunglasses and insect repellent. Binoculars are recommended for game viewing and a 300mm lens for wildlife photography. Please note: While tap water in South Africa's urban area is drinkable, some people may take a few days to acclimatise and thus may experience traveller's tummy. Therefore we recommend that your water bottle is a reusable filtered water bottle such as the ones featured at Water-to-Go: http://www.watertogo.eu/

Tipping

Local crew
Although entirely voluntary, tipping is a recognized part of life in this region of the world. Some local staff will look to members of the group for personal recognition of particular services provided. You should allow £20-£25 for tipping. In order to make things easier for you, the Tour Leaders may organise a group's tips kitty and if this is the case, they will account for it throughout the tour.
