Tour  Itinerary

DAY 1
On arrival at Johannesburg International Airport you will be met and transferred to the luxurious Michelangelo Hotel in Sandton City, where you will be staying for 2 nights on a Bed and Breakfast basis.

DAY 2
Play golf this morning at the prestigious, platinum rated Houghton Golf Club.
One of Johannesburg's mature parkland layouts and host to many of the Alfred Dunhill Championships and SA Opens. It is both a challenging and an aesthetically pleasing course: a proclaimed bird sanctuary and thickly treed with bluegums, willows and jacarandas with varieties of flowering shrubs. Not a long course by modern standards (5237 m; par 72), it remains challenging and has the reputation of testing every club in the bag, but remains its quality and charm by rewarding and pleasing its golfers of all skill levels.

DAY 3
Check out of the Michelangelo and transfer yourself to the Hans Merensky Country Estate in Phalaborwa, the Limpopo Province, where you will be staying for 2 nights on a B & B basis.

DAY 4
Play golf this morning at the silver rated Hans Merensky Golf Club.
Another fine course where the main attraction is the visiting wildlife - the course borders the Kruger National Park and many of the Park's inhabitants pay scant regarding the fencing, which is an unusual benefit to enjoying the round! Magnificent bushveld trees line the fairways and form backdrops to the holes. The course is truly a revelation and can be enjoyed by golfers of all talents. It is a 6 127 m / par 72 course.

DAY 5
Check out of The Hans Merensky Country Estate and transfer yourselves to the Ngala Private Game Reserve for your Big 5 safari experience. Here you will be staying for 2 nights on a fully inclusive basis, including all meals, local beverages and all game activities. Ngala, meaning "lion" in Shangaan, was the first private game reserve to be included in the Kruger National Park. The private concession is 14 700ha and is situated in the Orpen region of the Kruger National Park. Accommodation is in thatched chalets nestling under a canopy of Mopane and Tamboti trees. Each chalet is en-suite with a private veranda and exudes a romantic colonial ambience.

DAY 6
Ngala's location is one of the richest wildlife regions on the continent, which provides a game-viewing experience amongst the best in Africa. Wildlife to be seen is lion, leopard, black and white rhino, large herds of elephant and the elusive wild dog. At dusk and dawn, guests are taken on game drives in open 4 x 4 safari vehicles by skilled, professional rangers and trackers for a journey of discovery and excitement. For those wanting closer contact with the African wilderness, armed rangers lead guests on interactive bush walks which allow fascinating insights into the landscape, animal tracks and an intriguing host of beetles, butterflies and birds.

Breakfasts and lunches featuring Pan African cuisine are served in the shade of an enormous weeping Boerbean tree. Guests are welcomed back after their evening game drive and a banquet is served in the dramatic candle-lit courtyard or an African feast is to be had around the boma fire.

DAY 7
Check out of Ngala and transfer to Malelane where you will be spending 3 nights at the Malelane Sun on a B & B basis with dinner on your first two nights also included.

DAY 8
Play golf today at the prestigious, platinum rated Leopard Creek Golf Course.
This ultra exclusive course and golfing estate is the brainchild of magnate Johann Rupert. Bordering the Kruger National Park, the course represents African golf at its best, with indigenous bushveld bordering the immaculate fairways and greens. This course is 6 571 m and par 72 and is magnificently set overlooking the Crocodile River.
Included in your package is a golf shirt from this prestigious course, so please supply us with your sizes.

DAY 9
Play golf today at The Nelspruit Golf Club.
This course has undergone radial changes and vast improvements in recent times with Peter Matkovich having been commissioned to revamp and modernize this course, which has ultimately strengthened the design. A marvelous range of holes makes up what is a demanding yet fair test and, after a strong start to the round, the course presents opportunities for scoring well. Length: 6 074m / par 71

DAY 10

Check out of the Malelane Sun and transfer to Johannesburg International Airport for your connecting flight home.
