Mozambique, South Africa and eSwatini – Small Group
From the culture of the Zulu nation to the Portuguese and Arab influences in food and architecture of Mozambique. Beaches, excellent diving to big game viewing and bush walks with local ranger. The accommodation, particularly in Mozambique is simple and the roads can be slow. Local facilities are limited so most of the meals are prepared by the Sunway crew. Malaria prophylactics are recommended. This is an easy paced, relaxing safari for those looking for a different experience in Southern Africa.
Note: you can fly out of Johannesburg airport on the last day of tour, we do a free drop off at JNB at +/-17:00
Overnight The accommodation on this tour is simple in style, with 12 nights twin share en suite chalets and casitas (reed chalets). 1 night in Bilene has a variety of en suite rooms and two bedrooms sharing a bathroom in a casita, so you may have an en suite room throughout the tour. The guides will sort out room allocations.
Meals 13 breakfasts, 13 lunches and 8 dinners will be provided by the Sunway guides, prepared either at the truck or in the self catering kitchen. 2 dinners are provided by Zululand Lodge. Of which 1 breakfast is provided by the guest house. Meals will be eaten either under the trees near your chalet or around the campfire at the truck.
Transport due to sometimes poor roads we use Sunway Safari trucks with 12 seats for this tour. Potholes, rain damaged gravel roads, livestock and children on the roads can make travel slow, but at the same time you’ll pass through villages and witness the local lifestyle all the way. Game viewing in the national parks will be in the Sunway vehicle. On 5% of tours we may use Mercedes Sprinter minibuses with 12 seats and air conditioning (with trailer for equipment and baggage).
Limited participation An essential part of your safari is participation. From carrying your own bag to your room to packing the truck in the morning – it’s all part of your adventure. Your tour leaders will do the meal preparation when required but we do ask the clients to help (on rotation) with the washing up. There are some long travel days which means early morning starts so we all need to get involved to make the day run efficiently.
