Bushveld Terrace, Phalaborwa: Check in at the comfy Bushveld Terrace Guesthouse before meeting your guides for the day. Be sure to pack something warm, binoculars and a camera as you set off on a game drive, which takes you past an array of wonderful wildlife, including cheetahs and impalas! Next, it's on to the Letaba Rest Camp where you will enjoy a lavish dinner at a restaurant overlooking the Letaba River, before indulging in a hot drink around the camp-fire back at the guesthouse.
Malompeni Wild Campsite, Kruger National Park: Wake up and smell the coffee! Muffins and hot coffee are on the breakfast menu before you head out on an epic cycling adventure into the Kruger National Park. Meet your two armed guides at the Park: rest assured they'll keep you from the clutches of the 'Big 5' as you cycle a northerly route along the Malompeni River! If you don't spot all of the 'Big Five', you'll still get to take in rugged peaks, sprawling forests, pristine lakes, waterfalls and an abundance of beautiful wildlife! Then arrive at the campsite along the Letaba River, where you can relax in the forgiving shade. Feel free to cool down in the river itself before enjoying the sun-set and a hearty camp-side dinner!
Kruger National Park: Arise to the sound of birdsong and the enchanting sight of the Letaba River bank in the early morning light. Then invigorate yourself with some hot beverages before setting off at 5:15am for a testing but rewarding cycle! You'll be speeding along the Malompeni River and indulging in a tasty 'bush breakfast' there, before heading back towards Phalaborwa Gate where you should arrive at around 11am. Here you can take a rest and give your legs a nice, welcome rub down before reflecting on the magnitude of your glorious adventure in Kruger National Park!
