Wake up charmed in this piece of paradise on the Elephant Coast. Today sees us travelling to Hazyview in Mpumalanga via Swaziland.
After an early morning breakfast, we travel north along the N2 highway, entering the warm and welcoming Kingdom of Swaziland at Lavumisa Border post (visa own account). Swaziland is a beautiful and richly cultural country.
An absolute monarchy and one of the smallest countries on the African continent, it runs about 193km from north to south and 130km east to west.
We stop for lunch (own account) at Nisela Safari Lodge. Our drive through Swaziland takes us through 1000 year old hardwood vegetation and shallower pans of the Hlane Royal National Park, the Kingdom’s largest protected area and together with its neighbouring parks, makes up the vast bushveld expanse known as the Lubombo Conservancy. Exiting Swaziland at the Mangana Border post, we enter Mpumalanga, the smallest of South Africa’s nine provinces, which is blessed with magnificent lush beauty and many natural and ancient curiosities.
After a comfort stop in the Malelane area, we make our way to Hazyview. We arrive in the late afternoon at your accommodation, on the fringes of Hazyview. Relax before easing into leisurely dinner (included) at the hotel. Pestana Kruger Lodge or similar – dinner, bed and breakfast (4 star)
