Fleewinter has a brand new itinerary to South Africa for winter that includes a combination of the northern & southern Kruger game reserves plus 2 nights in Swaziland to chill at the end of the trip.

The first two nights are spent at the Kings Walden Lodge, a country lodge in the sub-tropical region of Tzaneen and the following three at Hamiltons, a luxury, 1930s-themed tented camp in a private concession in the northern region of the Kruger National Park; it is home to the ‘big five’ as well as a variety of other game ranging from giraffe, zebra, hyena and a variety of antelope to mention the highlights of what you can expect to see.

The next two nights will be spent at Highgrove House, a five-star country retreat with views over the Lowveld valley. It is a malaria-free area in Mpumalanga, situated on the Mpumalanga midway between White River and Hazyview and the ‘gate-way’ to exploring the very scenic Blyde River Canyon area with its breath-taking views and many waterfalls.

The next stop is Mjejane River Lodge, located in a private big five concession in southern Kruger on the banks of the Crocodile River – correctly named as it is home to both crocs and hippos. Game viewing is also great here and besides the animals mentioned above, the ‘winter wildlife’ also includes a variety of migratory birds who come to South Africa to breed.

The final two nights are spent relaxing at the Foresters Arms Hotel in the lush Ezulwini Valley in Swaziland and close to many craft producers and great hiking in the mountains.

The holiday cost from £1995 pp (2 sharing) which includes international flights (Heathrow to Jo’burg), car hire (unlimited km & zero excess), 11-nights’ accommodation as detailed, most meals and safari activities.
