7 Day Kruger Park & Kingdoms Tour

7 Days Holiday Trips from the spectacular scenery of the Mpumalanga region and world renowned Big 5 game viewing experiences of the Kruger National Park and Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game reserve to the culture-rich villages of the Zulu kingdom of Swaziland.

When you combine the Kruger National Park, an icon of the wildlife world and the Kingdoms of eSwatini and Zululand, you have a mighty experience designed to take your travel desires to new heights.

It all begins in Johannesburg, where you will begin the first leg, a trip into Mpumalanga to marvel at the scenery along the Panorama Route. It’s then on to the Kruger National Park, where the Big Five roam, wild and free. Sightings are of an extraordinary calibre and an open vehicle game drive with a passionate guide will thrill and excite.

You will then travel to eSwatini, an independent kingdom within the borders of South Africa, known for its colourful and vibrant culture. The people of eSwatini are the main attraction, where you will learn all about their traditions and customs. A cruise on Lake St Lucia awaits in Zululand, where hippos and crocodiles abound. The journey ends in Durban.

The Kruger & Zulu Kingdoms Tours has a spectacular program for any traveller. The tour includes collection from the airport in Johannesburg and drop-off at the airport in Durban.
