Kololo Bushveld Adventure Safari Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Johannesburg to Kololo    

Today is the joining day in Johannesburg, “City of Gold”. You will be met at the airport or your hotel for the transfer to Kololo which is about a 3-4 hour drive. On arrival at Kololo, there will be an introduction for the kids. They are given a booklet which will guide them during their stay and where different activities get signed off. It shows how to identify certain animals and the tracks they leave behind. Then it is time to take in the view and let the charm of the view start doing its work! Depending on arrival time, there will be an afternoon game drive on Kololo Game Reserve. Then Bush stories before bed time! Kololo Game Reserve is situated in the beautiful province of Limpopo, South Africa, in the heart of the Waterberg biosphere. Vast, peaceful and incredibly beautiful, this is a fascinating destination with a rich cultural legacy and a natural splendor. A malaria-free area and home to a large variety of game, Kololo is a perfect safari destination.
