Departing Pretoria our first stop is at Makapansgat where we take a guided tour of the caves and hear about the amazing fossil heritage as well as more recent history. We drive North to the Soutpansberg Mountains where we spend two nights with ample time to explore this area. We continue ever Northwards to Tshipise where there is time to relax and enjoy the hot mineral waters. The following day sees us driving through Venda with majestic baobab trees before entering the Kruger Park at Pafuri. Two nights at Punda Maria Camp with game drives and a possible visit to thula Mela and Crooks' Corner before turning southwards and driving back to Pretoria / Johannesburg.
