DAY 1 – ARRIVAL AT KARONGWE PORTFOLIO
Make your way through the stunning bushveld scenery to Karongwe in time for orientation and lunch with the rest of the group.
Shortly after eating we head out on our first game drive, ready and prepped for encounters with the local wildlife. In the late afternoon we take a break for sundowner drinks and snacks as the sun descends and casts long shadows and rich colours with the Drakensberg Mountains as a back drop. On hand at all times is our expert photographer, who will help you get the most from the experience, offering advice on everything from camera settings to composition along the way.
Returning to camp in the evening there’s chance to freshen up before heading to the bar for an aperitif, followed by a delicious dinner served in the dining area.
DAY 2 & 3 – GAME VIEWING & HIDE SESSION
The following days begin with tea, coffee and rusks served on the deck, before heading into the bush on the morning game drive. After traversing the reserve on the lookout for big game we return to the lodge for a hearty breakfast.
After lunch we head out on our afternoon hide session (hide sessions and game drives are interchangeable), as the animals awaken. Each day we stop for sundowners and snacks in the late afternoon, which offers us a chance to really appreciate the beauty of Karongwe, before continuing on with a spotlight in the fading light to seek out nocturnal animals.
Back at camp a much-needed evening meal awaits us in the dining area, followed by a comfortable bed to rest and refresh for the next day.
DAY 4 – FINAL SAFARI & DEPARTURE
It’s the last chance for photo opportunities this morning on the final game drive of the trip, after which we will enjoy breakfast together before leaving Karongwe.
