After time to settle in at our hotel we'll gather for a welcome drink and dinner.

​This morning you could choose to visit the TC Robertson Nature Reserve, which lies on the edge of Scottburgh. Home to around 180 species of birds, we'll take a walk through the reserve and enjoy tea and cake before returning to the hotel.

Later, why not get to know your surroundings better by joining your Tour Manager for a stroll along the beach.​

​After breakfast we'll set off on a thrilling full-day excursion to the Tala Private Game Reserve, located in the hills close to the city of Durban. In the company of an experienced guide, we'll look out for wildlife including rhino, hippo, zebra, giraffe and antelope. The reserve is also home to more than 380 different species of bird. Lunch will be served in a restaurant overlooking the bush.​

​On today's visit to a local community, we'll meet the members of a women's sewing project and tour a cookery school and computer learning centre. These projects are run as part of the South African Social Upliftment scheme to redress past inequalities and increase the quality of life for local people.

This afternoon you are free to enjoy the hotel's superb facilities. Perhaps take a dip in the swimming pool.​

​If you want to explore a little further afield, we offer an array of optional excursions. Wildlife lovers might also choose to experience an overnight stay at the Hluhluwe Game Reserve, which is renowned for its role in rhino conservation. This optional excursion includes one night's accommodation and three incredible game drives.

​Enjoy the day at leisure to relax at your hotel and explore at your own pace.​

We've left the final day of your holiday free, so you can relax and enjoy the facilities at your hotel or choose from a range of optional activities.

This evening we'll share our stories and experiences when we gather as a group for a farewell South African Braai in a traditional Boma.

​This morning, you could choose to enjoy a leisurely stroll along the beach before we transfer to the airport for our flight back to the UK via Johannesburg.​

​Arrive in the UK today.
