Umlani Bush Camp, one of our most popular in the Timbavati Reserve, adjacent to the Kruger National Park, is the main focus of this short-break safari. Known for its close relationship with the local community and its fair trade principles, you'll find yourself immersed in the African bush on game drives and bush walks. The sleep-outs here are great fun and recommended if you like the excitement of spending a night out under the stars. Your first day and night are spent in Johannesburg, and so that you make the most of your time in the capital, we’ve included a private vehicle and guide. You'll be able to take in all of the city highlights at your own pace. This is a great value one-week trip that includes complimentary road transfers to and from Johannesburg. It has wide appeal – we get enthusiastic feedback from families, honeymooners and travellers of all ages.
