Mosambik Transfrontier

17 Tage
Allrad-Entdeckungstour ab/bis Johannesburg

Spannender Grenzgang Karte

Mosambik: Eine spannende Kreuzung von Zivilisationen, Kulturen und Landschaften - von Beginn an beeinflusst von nomadischen Stämmen, arabischen Händlern, britischen Seeleuten und portugiesischen Kolonisten. Dann wurde alles hinweggefegt von über 20 Jahren Bürgerkrieg. Mit neu gefundenem Frieden hat sich das Land nun wieder dem Tourismus geöffnet und bietet unberührte Wildregionen, Naturschönheiten, einsame Strände und ein einzigartiges kulturelles Erbe.

Die Tour verbindet die bekannten Attraktionen Krüger-Nationalpark und Hluhluwe-Park mit dem neu gegründeten Transfrontier Peace-Park, Banhine / Zinave wilderness und Maputo Elefant Reserves in Mosambik. Die Tour führt außerdem zu landschaftlichen und kulturellen Attraktionen. Sie verbringen Zeit an einsamen Stränden des Indischen Ozeans, inklusive des Bazaruto Archipels. Sie genießen eine Nacht in der Hauptstadt Mosambiks, wo Sie die latinoähnliche Kultur erleben, und stürzen sich ins Nachtleben, bevor Sie die Bucht mit der Fähre überqueren und die südliche Küste und den Maputo Elephant-Park erkunden.

Highlights:

  • Privates Buschcamp – Big Five
  • Krüger-Nationalpark
  • Transfrontier Peace Park
  • Unerforschte Wildnis

DAY 1: JOHANNESBURG - BUSH CAMP

Departing at 06h30 from Johannesburg, "City of Gold", we head for the spectacular scenery of the Mpumalanga province. We will visit numerous sights including the pioneer gold mining village of Pilgrims Rest and the Three Rondavels that tower over the Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve. Late in the afternoon we descend from the escarpment to the Lowveld where we overnight in the comfortable DRIFTERS BUSHVELD CAMP within the Balule Game, part of the Greater Kruger National Park. After dinner we will enjoy an open vehicle night game drive.

Dinner

DAY 2: BUSH CAMP - KRUGER

Arising with the African sun, we set out on foot in this "Big 5" reserve for a lengthy walk. Our tracker will attempt to show us animals in their natural habitat and to give us some insight into the art of tracking. We return to camp for a healthy brunch and a swim before packing up and moving on to the world-renowned Kruger National Park - widely acclaimed as being Africa's most successful Nature Reserve. We will spend our time here game driving in search of the many animal and bird species that inhabit the area, and will camp two nights in the parks rest camps.

Brunch / Dinner

DAY 3: KRUGER NATIONAL PARK

This entire day is for viewing animals in the Kruger from our well-equipped vehicle. We will search for the "Big 5" today, heading north in the park. Camp the night.

Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner

DAY 4 - 5: MOZAMBIQUE TRANSFRONTIER PARK

This morning, after a visit to Crook's corner, the point marking the border between South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe and renowned as a hideout for poachers in the colonial days, we cross the border into Mozambique. At this point the road becomes a bush track, and we will follow the path of the Limpopo River toward Mapai before venturing into the heart of the wilderness. The area that we traverse over the next days is what forms the Mozambique side of the Transfrontier Peace Park and is privileged to have remained virtually unexplored by humans. The bush is exceptional, and offers areas of exquisite natural beauty and wildlife. The diversity of the flora ensures some of the finest birding in Africa. We will spend two nights camping wild, exploring both on foot and by vehicle, and enjoying the serenity of the wilderness. Road conditions are rough and river crossings numerous, clients will be expected to assist in difficult sections, but for those seeking true adventure and unspoiled Africa, there are few areas that compare with this.

Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner

DAY 6 - 7: BANHINE / ZINAVE

Leaving the Transfrontier Park, we make our way across the Limpopo River and into the heart of the Banhine / Zinave wilderness region where we will spend two nights wild bush camping. We will attempt to traverse some of the Zinave Park, once renowned for its abundant wildlife. Few people have visited these areas in the last two decades.

Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner

DAY 8 - 9: VILANCULOS

Leaving the wilderness behind us, today we pass through the many vibrant and bustling villages en route to the coast. Our next stop is Vilanculos - on the shores of the warm azure Indian Ocean, overlooking the Idyllic Bazaruto Archipelago. We spend two nights here in casitas, situated literally on the beach. We will enjoy a traditional Dhow trip to the islands and will have the opportunity to snorkel along a reef in this marine reserve (this trip is dependant on weather conditions). One night we will enjoy a meal at a local restaurant (own expense).

Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner

DAY 10 - 11 - 12: INHAMBANE

Moving south along the coast, our next stop is the ancient trading port of Inhambane. We spend some time exploring and visiting the bustling local market before continuing to our DRIFTERS BARRA BEACH CAMP under the Coconut Palms on the beach. We will enjoy three nights in relative comfort, staying in Casitas at this camp and during our time here we will relax, snorkel, and soak up the sun whilst exploring the deserted beaches that Mozambique is so well known for. On the last night we enjoy a catered meal (own expense). For those who wish, there are the options of scuba diving or horse riding on the beach (own expense).

Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner

DAY 12: CHIDENGUELE

After a day of crossing vast coastal flood plains and passing through forests of cashew nut trees, we arrive at our next stop - the pristine resort of Chidenguele. Situated on a sand dune, inland is thick coastal forest and large freshwater lakes; to the other side is deserted sandy beach as far as the eye can see. We have an afternoon here to explore the area and to walk to the deserted lighthouse that can be climbed for a stunning view of the surrounding area. Overnight in comfortable bungalows.

Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner

DAY 13: MAPUTO

Well relaxed and sun-drenched, we continue down the coast to the capital Maputo where we spend some time driving around and exploring this once grandiose city. Maputo boasts a Latino culture of street cafés, music and bustling markets. We cross the bay on the Catembe Ferry to our overnight stay in a comfortable hotel. Tonight we will eat in a local restaurant, sampling some of the local seafood (own expense). For the brave, Peri-Peri is a must.

Breakfast / Lunch

DAY 14: ELEPHANT RESERVE

It is with new excitement that we venture back into the bush. Driving on sandy tracks we wind our way south to the Elephant reserve where we will spend the entire afternoon exploring the coastal flood plains and surrounding forests in search of these larger than average African elephants. Somehow, during the war years these elephants survived by moving down the Futi channel into South Africa, it is one of nature's miracles that they have now returned in large numbers. We will camp the night.

Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner

DAY 15 - 16: ZULULAND

Returning to South Africa today via the Ponta do Ouro border post, we enter the area once ruled by the famed Shaka Zulu. We will spend two nights at the DRIFTERS ZULULAND CAMP, a rustic camp in the sand forest on our private reserve adjoining Lake St Lucia near Hluhluwe. During our stay we will enjoy game walks through the forest, experience an open vehicle game drive in Hluhluwe Game Reserve and will visit a rural Zulu school which Drifters sponsors through the benefits of tourism.

Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner

DAY 17: JOHANNESBURG

Our journey today takes us through the heart of Kwazulu - Natal, we will pass many rural Zulu villages and some spectacular scenery en-route back to Johannesburg. We arrive back at the DRIFTERS JOHANNESBURG INN in the late afternoon.
