Day 1

Manyeleti Sunset Night Drive and Bongan African Lodge

Manyeleti Sunset Night Drive and Bongan African Lodge

We will pick you up in Johannesburg at 6 am and put you on the transfer bus from Or Tambo to Hoedspruit.
After lunch (at your own cost), we'll proceed to your first overnight accommodation at Bongan African Lodge in an African Village near the Manyeleti Reserve.
Upon arrival, our dedicated staff will welcome you and show you to your chalets, where you can relax for a while. Your first official safari experience will commence shortly after settling into your accommodation—the Sunset Drive. Enjoy as the last rays of the gorgeous light bathe the African bushveld in vivid reds, yellows, and pinks (hint: the lighting will add a romantic element to your photographs!). The Sunset Drive allows you the unique experience of spotting some nocturnal creatures that ordinarily are hidden during the day—watch out for eyes glowing in the dark! Return to the Bongan African Lodge for a delicious dinner at around 7:00 pm. Stay overnight in your comfortable chalet.
