If your idea of an
adventure is cheating in solitaire or switching from regular socks to toe
socks, then today’s Groupon will take your “adventure” and raise you a much
better one. Get your game on and explore
the wild when you pay R999 per person for a full day tour of Hluhluwe iMfolozi
Game Reserve with Safaris for Africa.
Situated north of
Durban in KwaZulu-Natal, the iMfolozi Game Reserve is the oldest game reserve
in South Africa. Established in 1895,
the park is now home to Africa’s Big Five and other game, including the elusive
Cheetah, Wild Dog and Nyala antelope.
Boasting natural beauty to rival Snow White and enough history to
satisfy a scholar, rip up the floorboards of your routine and enjoy a magical
day in the African bush.
Arrive fresh as a
frozen grape at 6:00 at the Safaris for Africa offices in Umhlanga and set off
for your adventure. Brace yourself for a
wild ride of incredible once-in-an-African-moon opportunities and enjoy a safe
yet exhilarating drive where you can just as easily meet face-to-fur with The
Big Five and their estranged relative, the cheetah. Once you’ve worked up a generous appetite,
enjoy a delicious champagne picnic en route before continuing a late afternoon game drive.
Safari fact: Game lodges in America track their lions by placing a digital hairband around their manes; giving the females a pink sparkly one and the males a leather studded design. The initiative has never been that successful as lions tend to leave their hairbands up the trees.
