11 Day Kruger and Mozambique Tour

 

11 Day Kruger and Mozambique Tour

Embark on an epic 11 Day tour of Kruger National Park and Mozambique. Visit the Panoramic Route, see God’s Window and Blyde River Canyon, enjoy an open vehicle safari in Kruger National Park, see the turtles at Bilene, and enjoy an ocean safari at Barra Reef Beach and catch some sun at Tofo Beach.

South Africa's Panorama region offers stunning views at God’s Window and the Blyde River Canyon. The world-famous Kruger National Park gives you the opportunity to see plenty of wildlife. Beautiful Bilene, is a small town surrounded by an inland lake that stretches for 27 km. Across the lake are the beaches of the Indian Ocean, where you will have the opportunity to spot the turtles that make this area their home. The town of Inhambane has one of the best curio markets in Mozambique. The warm tropical waters of Barra Reef Beach attract many species of fish and other sea-dwelling creatures such as Green and Leatherback Turtles, Manta Rays, and the Whale Shark, the majestic giant of the sea. If you would like to learn how to surf, you will have the opportunity to take some classes. The diving here is world-class; if you are not already a diver, why not try a resort course? Leaving Barra Reef a short drive takes you to Tofo Beach. The days here are spent lazing in the sun, swimming in the tropical sea, playing beach volleyball, and walking down to the beach bar for sundowners. The small town of Tofo also has its own small curio and food market and one or two restaurants where they serve great seafood and other local dishes typical of Mozambique. Your guide will organize your ocean safari for you whilst here, which is included in the tour.
