Day 2-3: Witnessing a mesmerizing game drive at Umlani

Get ready for your first safari adventures at Umlani, an elegant eco-lodge in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve. While wildlife to watch and encounter at Umlani is vast, you will always have other things that will make your stay at Umlani a worth. When you are done with the game driving, do not miss to relax at your lodge and experience the best of nature while enjoying coffee in your balcony. Walk around the corners, have breakfast, and enjoy birdwatching in the lap of mother nature. Soak up nature in silence while spending time in the treehouse that the lodge boats on its outskirts. Watch the animals drinking water from ponds,  spend the night in the tree, enjoy bountiful spreads at breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and make your stay as close as you can to the mother nature.

Day 4: A visit to the legendary Sabi Sands Game Reserve

If you really want to witness the wilderness in the wild, you need to visit Sabi Sands which is also home to Kruger National Park, the largest park in the world. Sabi Sands is known for its vast population of white Rhinos which sometimes symbolizes this place. Not only rhinos, but Sabi Sands is also home to millions of antelope, and the full smorgasbord of predators. The best part about the reserve is that it is fence-free. This means, the wildlife in this reserve actually roams freely on the roads. Hence, while game driving in the reserve you may notice a couple of animals just in front of your rented vehicle. It may be a rhino, an elephant, or even a big cat. Stay alert!

Day 5: The imperious Table Mountains

It’s not only the mountains that will draw your attention but the surroundings as well.
