Itinerary 2 - Mpumalanga

July 12 -- Arrive in Johannesburg to be greeted by a Prowler Safari representative. Once the group is collected we will transfer to spend the evening in Hannah's private Guest Lodge. You will enjoy a game drive that evening to see the stunning highveld Antelope and then on to get some much needed rest and a nice shower/bath to recover from your long flight to Africa!

Hannah -- Meaning "A Gift from God" lies amongst the gently rolling hills of the Southern African Escarpment. This beautiful Private Nature Reserve embraces more than 8,000 hectares of Malaria -- free, unspoiled African Bushveld. Hannah is a reflection of Africa in its entire natural splendor, a captivating tapestry of African sounds, smells and colors. The rising sun showers the valley with shades of pink, red and orange. Here the visitors experience a rare sense of freedom and renewed inspiration. Continuously and without compromise, we will always strive to deliver a natural and magical experience that can be savored and remembered.

July 13 through 16 -- Kruger National Park -- Lower Sabie

Olifants Restcamp -- In the morning you will enjoy an early morning drive, very scenic pass from Hannah into Kruger Park heading for Olifants Rest Camp. This is a lovely camp on the river where there are good displays of (you may have guessed by the name) Elephants. In the evening it is lovely to sit out on the viewing deck and watch the magical African light fade and listen to the hippo grunting away or you can enjoy sitting on the verandah of your hut at night, encircled by flickering campfires and listening to the king of beasts roar his presence, is a never-to-be-forgotten experience at Kruger National Park in South Africa.

Skukuza Restcamp -- This restcamp is some 35 km from Crocodile Bridge, situated on the banks of the game-rich Sabie River in the southern part of the Kruger National Park, with excellent sundowner viewing and arguably the best area in the park for viewing game this time of year, you will spend two nights here to have a chance to acclimate and take advantage of this special time of year.

Berg-en-dal Restcamp -- This is one of The Kruger's newest Restcamps, offering very nice accommodations. Leopard and wild dog are commonly seen in this area and bird watchers will find a wide variety of species in this area.

Due to the abundant foliage and waterholes in the area, game abounds here. There are various excellent drives in this area, especially the one flanking the river's south bank, and lions are quite common in this area, usually under trees and bushes in the heat of the day, but early morning and late afternoon drives should lead to various sightings.

July 16 through 20 -- Arathusa

Arathusa -- The word is derived from the Northern Sotho word "Reathusa", which means "to help one another". The camp is an intimate one, completely open-plan and designed to harmoniously blend with the adjacent lake and African bush. The main living area is intended for comfort. Whether quietly reflecting on the view, reading a good book, enjoying banter or boasting about the days sightings - the warmth and charm of the camp environment is the foundation of the Arathusa safari experience - Arathusa Beckons...

Game drives in an open safari vehicle meander their way into the bush each morning and late afternoon in search of what the Animal Planet has promised, close encounters are guaranteed with unparalleled photographic opportunities! Guided walks with armed rangers may also be arranged.

July 20 -- After a morning drive and breakfast you have will say your good-byes to the magic of the South African Bush and head back to the Johannesburg to catch your flight home.

Want more? -- Interested in extending your stay? Whether it be for the day to do some shopping in one of Johannesburg's outdoor markets -- practice your bargaining skills and bring an extra bag, or perhaps visiting enchanting Cape Town, contact LouAnn and she will be happy to make those arrangements for you. Cape Town is a city worth seeing, spectacular views and plenty to do. Visit Cape Point, the continent of Africa's most southern point, or enjoy a day at the beach watching jack ass penguins and swimming in the warm Indian Ocean. This area is also well know for its fine dining and world class wineries. For those of you up for a challenge, climb Table Mountain and enjoy the view.
