The breath-taking 17-night adventure, with accommodation included in mixture of hotels and lodges, now starts from £2,799 per person, while prices for solo travellers start from £3,099.

The stay at Kruger features a Big Five safari to look for lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant and buffalo while a visit to Jozini, in the heart of the Zulu Kingdom, includes a two-night stay at the foot of Ghost Mountain in Mkuzei and a sundowner lake cruise, plus an option to visit to the iSimangaliso Wetland Park.
