Can you tell me what optional excursions are available on this tour. I am particularly interested as to whether there is an opportunity to do additional safaris.

Hi Lozza, these excursions sound amazing!  I did the old South African Explorer tour in 2011 and South Africa is still my favourite country!  I'm sure you will have a fabulous time if you book.  My first ever safari was in Hluhluwe and I'll never forget the excitement when we saw our first elephant!  We also saw a black rhino, which are endangered in the wild.  I have done numerous safaris since and I've never seen a black rhino apart from there.

Cheers,

Bob

Good Afternoon Barbzanne,

The excursion costs all depends really on how many you want to do, I recommend you take R2500.00. You can use the ATM, to use a UK Debit card and draw about R1000 per day.

I hope this helps.

Kind Regards,
Mildred.

This is not a very helpful reply when trying to work out if I can afford this holiday. Surely each additional excursion has an individual price and is not dependent on how many you do.

Hi Jane,

Apologies, here are the optional excursions offered by the Blue Marlin Hotel. Details and prices are for guidance only, and may be subject to change.

SANI PASS AND LESOTHO DAY TOUR approximately 2700 rand per person
Travel in a 4 x 4 vehicle up the mountain pass, driving through Drakensberg National Park. Please remember to take your passport with you, as you'll cross the border into Lesotho to visit a traditional Basotho homestead.
Depart the hotel at 5am and return at 6pm.

ORIBI GORGE DAY TOUR approximately 1100 rand per person
Travel down the south coast and then journey inland to the million-year-old Oribi gorge. Cut by the Umzinkulwana River, this wonder of nature is 27kms long, 400m deep and stretches for 4km at its widest point.
Depart the hotel at 9am and return at 2pm.
HLUHLUWE OVERNIGHT SAFARI approximately 6900 rand per person if sharing, with an 800 rand single supplement
Big 5 safari (2 days/1 night)
Spend a night in Africa’s oldest national park, the Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game Reserve on this thrilling 2-day excursion.

Day1
We'll transfer you to the St Lucia estuary, where you will enjoy a two-hour hippo and crocodile cruise. Afterwards, you can take lunch in the town if you wish (at extra cost) before we head to the Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game Reserve. We'll spend the rest of the afternoon searching for the 'Big 5' as well as all the other wonderful animals in the park.
We'll arrive at the Hilltop camp late afternoon. After time at leisure, your guide will prepare a wonderful South African braai, a traditional barbecue, for you to enjoy. Later you can choose to join an optional night drive with the park rangers.

Day2
Head out with the park rangers for an early-morning game drive. On returning to the camp, enjoy a scrumptious breakfast before checking out.

Thanks,
Vickie
