Two Cowboys - Escorted South African Safari and Culinary Experience (April - May, 2019)
Come with the Two Traveling Cowboys and experience the best the South African Bushveld has to offer - the place where we grew up. Explore the culinary delights, culture, people and wildlife that make this one of the most unforgettable experiences ever!
South Africa is a stunning destination that can truly offer a trip of a lifetime for any traveller and we, the Two Cowboys will host you to help you make it the trip of your life.
Instead of the typical "wildlife" and "National Parks" offerings, we will take you into the heart of the bush to stay on a game farm. You can come up close to the “big five” in their natural habitat. Walk with the trekkers. Learn first hand about the animals and their behaviours. You will end each day around the campfire where you will share stories and have an unforgettable meal after meal. The region has a phenomenally sunny climate. Amazing people and unforgettable cuisine.
This trip is a fully escorted tour in the company of the Two Cowboys, your two experienced tour guides and South African born natives.
The trip has been tailor-made to take in the best of what the South African Bushveld has to offer. Starting with a safari experience & ending with the splendour of Pretoria and Gauteng. The route takes in the world famous Mpumalanga escarpment, mountains and beer tasting. Moving on to Limpopo for an African Safari experience and finishing with the glitz and excitement of South Africa's two largest northern cities.
The trip includes staying in comfortable accommodations, game drives in open safari vehicles, participatory cooking, beer and wine tastings, mieliepap, braai, and much more.
The trip is road based in two people carriers driven by your guides. Local transport is therefore included. You have the option to rent your own transport for more flexible exploration (additional cost).
