Tour overview

Within the borders of South Africa are two small, autonomous countries – the Royal Kingdom of Swaziland and the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho. During this tour we explore these two remarkable countries, along with the Zulu Kingdom in South Africa - the heart of the mighty Zulu Nation. Aptly named The Three Kingdoms, this is one of the latest additions to our tour portfolio. The tour not only presents exceptional photographic opportunities of Swazi, Zulu and Basotho culture, but we traverse and view some of the most spectacular landscapes in Southern Africa. The tour includes the awe-inspiring Sani Pass, a night at the highest pub in Africa, and ends at the magnificent Maliba Mountain Lodge, the only 5-star lodge in Lesotho. From the rolling grasslands of Swaziland to the majestic peaks of the Maluti Mountains, this tour promises to be an incredible cultural and photographic adventure. For a wildlife extension to this tour, we recommend adding 3 or 4 nights at the nearby Phinda Private Game Reserve, a spectacular reserve that is home to all of Africa's "Big 5" animals.
