There are several days hiking in the remarkable Drakensberg Mountains, the hilly country of the Kingdom of Swaziland and the less-visited areas of Mpumalanga. Perhaps the highlight of the trip is taking guided game walks in private reserves: we learn how to track wildlife, observe at close hand the remarkable variety of bird and plant life and, of course, experience the thrill of a close encounter with animals on an equal footing. There are also several game drives in the famous Kruger National Park and Mkuzi Reserve, a sanctuary for the endangered Black Rhino.
