Affordable Bush & Beach

Affordable Bush & Beach Overview

This is the ideal holiday offering you some time out on a beach in a remote location, and some awesome game-viewing experiences!

This holiday starts off at a guest house on the Umhlanga Beach, where you can enjoy some stunning sea views and a breakfast before setting off Hluhluwe Region in the morning. You’ll be staying outside the Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve in an owner run lodge, meaning you have the freedom to explore the surrounding areas during your 2-night stay. Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve itself offers some great wildlife sightings, and we also recommend a scenic coastal walk at False Bay, as well as a visit to the nearby wildlife and elephant sanctuaries.

The next part of your bush & beach holiday takes you a little further North to the Tembe Elephant Park, home to Africa’s largest elephants! You’ll be spending 2 nights in the community-run lodge and be treated to 2 afternoon and 2 morning game drives. Other animals at the lodge include elephants, lions and antelope.

Your next stop takes you to Kosi Bay, where you’ll be met at a meeting point and driven via 4×4 to the camp where you’ll be staying (yes, it’s that wild)! You’ll spend another 2 nights here, spending your days soaking up the sun and relaxing to the sounds of the pristine wilderness, in between fun-filled water activities.

The last stop on your bush & beach safari holiday takes you to the St Lucia Wetlands. St Lucia offers a unique environment, surrounded by the sea and the St Lucia estuary, which is home to many magnificent creatures, including hippos and crocodiles! During your 2-night stay here, you can do as much or as little as you like – you set the pace!
