Day 1
Arrive at Johannesburg Airport and check in at the Federal Airlines kiosk situated in the Bus terminal behind the Intercontinental Hotel. From there you will be transferred to the Fedair Terminal for your light aircraft flight to the beautiful malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve.
 
After checking in to your lodge, enjoy your first thrilling safari drive in an open-top game viewing vehicle accompanied by a lodge ranger. Game viewing opportunities should present themselves almost immediately in this vast game sanctuary. Hopefully you will see several species of antelope, zebra, wildebeest and maybe even wild dogs - as well as several of the Big Five today. Then dine under the stars in the atmosphere that only the African bushveld can provide.
 
Soft bags only - rigid suitcases can be stored at the Fedair terminal.
Days 2 To 4
Rise at dawn to take advantage of the best game viewing conditions of the day, as you enjoy a thrilling open-top game viewing drive with your lodge ranger in the Madikwe Game Reserve. Explore the vast plains, which offer magnificent game viewing and the opportunity to search for all of the Big 5 - Lion, Elephant, Buffalo, Leopard and Rhino - before returning to your lodge for breakfast.
  
The rest of the morning is free to relax by the swimming pool or enjoy bird watching, before setting out again in the late afternoon for another game drive. With numerous different species of mammals and reptiles in the park you can hope to see cheetah, giraffe, hippo, kudu, crocodiles, sable antelope, waterbuck, warthogs, baboons, wild dogs and many other interesting animals. Outstanding bird watching is also guaranteed!
  
After a beautiful African sunset, enjoy the balmy evening and pristine stars of the Milky Way as you have never seen them before – as well as the spectacular Southern Cross.
 
Children < 6 are not allowed on open top game drives
Day 5
Enjoy a final early morning game drive in Madikwe Game Reserve, before your light aircraft flight to Johannesburg Airport for your onward flight.

You will be met at Johannesburg Airport and transferred to the Fireblade Aviation hanger in nearby Bonaero Park.
 
Here you will connect with your light aircraft flight to the luxurious Tswalu Private Game Reserve in the vast Kalahari.
 
Check in and relax, before enjoying your first game drive in this malaria-free wilderness, accompanied by a lodge ranger. Then enjoy a delicious dinner under the clear night skies.
Days 6 To 7
Today is devoted to game viewing in the vast Kalahari.
 
Up early today for an exciting dawn open-top game drive, when game viewing conditions are at their best.  The Kalahari is home to several amazing wildlife species that have successfully adapted to the harsh desert conditions – including the black-maned lion, the magnificent horned oryx and the springbok. The Kalahari is also superb for viewing leopard and cheetah, which are more easily seen in the sparse vegetation and sand dunes.
 
Return to the lodge for breakfast, then relax by the swimming pool or pamper yourself at the spa. There is also the opportunity to enjoy a walking trail. You will see some of Africa’s most unusual animals in the Kalahari and many of the “great cats” – lion, cheetah and leopard – but the vegetation does not support elephants, rhino or buffalo.
 
In the afternoon enjoy another open-top safari drive, tracking game in one of the world's last great wilderness areas and in the evening view the magnificently clear stars of the southern sky.
Day 8
Transfer to the landing strip for your light aircraft flight to the Fireblade Aviation hanger in Bonaero Park.
 
Here you will be met and transferred to nearby Johannesburg Airport for your flight home.
