For one-week long tours that visit Hluhluwe-Imfolozi, you are likely to depart from Johannesburg in Gauteng and end in Durban, or back in Johannesburg. Alternatively, you can start your short tour in Durban in Kwa-Zulu Natal and end in Johannesburg. The shorter safaris almost all visit the small landlocked country of Swaziland, exploring Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary, along with the South African gems of Isimangaliso Wetland Park, the Panorama Route and Kruger Park.
The two-week long tours start and end in Johannesburg, or travel between Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape and Johannesburg. In addition to Swaziland, these longer tours also travel to Lesotho, the Kingdom in the Sky or Mozambique. Highlights on the mid-length safaris between Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth include Drakensberg Mountains, Durban and Addo Elephant National Park.
Our longer budget safaris incorporating Hluhluwe-Imfolozi, typically travel from Cape Town in the Western Cape to Johannesburg or vice versa. These typically visit the same highlights as the medium-length safaris that include Hluhluwe-Imfolozi as well as the Garden Route, Western Cape highlights and Cape Town.
Our Budget Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Safaris are mostly Overland Tours (Accommodated Overland and Camping Overland Tours) or Budget Lodge Safaris, with one Hiking Tour option.
The Overland Tours are usually conducted in large or medium-sized overland expedition trucks. Overland Tours typically travel in groups of up to 20 guests and require a level of participation. Overland Camping Tours are the most affordable option requiring the most participation with setting up camps and preparing meals. Overland Africa travel tends to attract the younger crowd (20 and 30 somethings) because of the participation, the large group size and the adventure nature of the tours. However, anyone with a sense of adventure and willingness to pitch in actively can join Overland Tours and enjoy the journey.
Our Budget Lodge Safaris, on the other hand, are conducted in small overland vehicles or luxury vehicles (air-conditioned mini-buses). The lodge safaris offer more comfort and luxury in terms of accommodation and transport. On these Southern Africa lodge tours, you travel in groups of about 12 guests and little to no participation is required of guests. On the Budget Lodge Tours, your meals are usually prepared by the guides or the lodges and guesthouses and you can eat out along the way.
