Increasingly we are also asked to extend our clients holiday in southern Africa to areas that we don’t typically cover by recommending and booking additional destinations at either the beginning or more typically the end of their safari. So if you would like to visit any of the following destinations, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will assist you wherever possible for a reasonable fee. Below is a list of destinations that we can arrange for you to reach either by plane or hire car:

  • A visit to some of South Africa’s specialist golfing venues
  • A relaxing end of safari visit to cosmopolitan Cape Town
  • An introduction to the wine route and/or the garden route of the Western Cape
  • An opportunity to journey back in time and visit the Battlefields of Kwa-Zulu Natal
  • A trip to view the spectacular mountain countries of Swaziland and Lesotho combined with a visit to their flagship national parks:

Hlane Royal National Park in Swaziland. This park is the Kingdom of Swaziland’s largest protected area and boasts abundant and diverse wildlife. It is an immense flat lowland thick with 1,000-year-old hardwood trees, grasslands and shallow pans that attract great herds of animals during the dry winter months and a mountain biking safari is highly recommended.

Sehlaba-Thebe National Park in Lesotho. Drive through the infamous Sani Pass to visit Lesotho’s flagship national park – one of the highest and remotest parks in Africa. The park has superb scenery and is a hiker’s paradise. It is an area of rolling green hills, basalt peaks, a plateau bisected by rivers, hundreds of caves, rock art sites, many waterfalls and small lakes. Here you can see a wealth of birdlife, some mountain buck and other small mammals. But the parks most famous resident is a small minnow-like fish – a species that was thought to be extinct!

If you want to journey further afield, we can help you plan trips to Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda or Rwanda.

Umsisi House

Finally, Black Pot Safaris are delighted to offer our clients the opportunity of booking the exclusive umSisi House in Mpumalanga, South Africa at either the beginning or end of their safari at a discounted rate (10% below quoted prices). umSisi House is located in the heart of the Kruger Lowveld region and superbly situated for trips to the Kruger National Park, Panorama Route, Mozambique and Swaziland.
