GOLF SAFARI

Shorter that the Golf Collage, the Golf Safari is a three-day journey from Pretoria to Durban through Swaziland but no less exciting.

Golfers have their first stop at Sun City where non-golfers can enjoy the variety of activities the resort has on offer and a game drive Pilanesberg game reserve.

As the journey progresses through the foothills of the Majestic Drakensberg Mountain range golfers are treated to 18 holes at the Champagne Sports resort with a guided tour of the historic battlefields with a world-class historian for the non-golfers

In Durban guests can enjoy a game at Durban Country Club (or Beachwood) or a tour of the vibrant city. Next, you wind your way to Swaziland to enjoy a hiatus in Zululand including game viewing at Hluhluwe. As you continue into swaziland, guests are invited to tee off at Royal Swazi or enjoy a game drive at Mkhaya and a visit to Ngwenya Glass and Guava Gallery.

On the last leg of the journey golfers play the challenging Leopard Creek course (dependent) while non-golfers enjoy a game drive in the world-famous Kruger Park.
