Meals included: In-Flight

On arrival to Johannesburg, you will be met and transferred to the 5 star Ivory Tree Game Lodge in the Pilanesberg National Park (approx. 2.5 - 3hours drive) where you will arrive in time for your first afternoon game drive.

Pilanesberg Game Reserve is set in the crater of a long extinct volcano, and ranks among the largest of the parks in South Africa. It’s situated within the transition zone between the dry Kalahari and the wetter Lowveld vegetation, commonly referred to as Bushveld. Unique overlaps of mammals, birds and vegetation occur due to this transition zone. The fascinating combination of geology, landscape and rainfall gives rise to different patterns of vegetation - wide open grasslands, steep hill slopes, rocky outcrops, wooded valleys, thickets and thickly wooded gorges.

Pilanesberg accommodates virtually every mammal of southern Africa and is also home to healthy populations of lion, leopard, black and white rhino, elephant and buffalo. A wide variety of rare and common species exist here such as the nocturnal brown hyaena, the fleet-footed cheetah and the majestic sable. Bird watching is excellent with over 300 species recorded.

Ivory Tree Game Lodge is a five-star game lodge located inside the Pilanesberg Game Reserve. Elegantly furnished with African themes, each of the lodge’s thatched rooms feature a patio, air-conditioning and en-suite bathroom with bath and shower. The main area consists of two lounges, a cocktail bar, dining room, outdoor pool and a fire pit. The safari lodge experience includes guided game drives through the magnificent game reserve in a 10-seater safari vehicle. Other activities offered in the surrounding area include archery, quad biking and bird watching (not included - available at extra cost).

TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide: 
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader: 
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined. 
 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured. 
 
CLIMATE & AVERAGE TEMPERATURES
Johannesburg, South Africa

The mornings may be a little chilly as opposed to the warmer and cooler evenings. During the day, the sun will shine for an average of eleven hours.
 
The Seychelles
Although it is the season of monsoon, the temperature lingers around the average temperature of 27°C, thus sustaining the amazing weather. The rain showers themselves often occur in short and brief bouts and intervals, not lasting for too long and are short-lived.
