African bush. During the expedition, you will have many opportunities to photograph wildlife. You will

Safarimobile

The Expedition Vehicle
The expedition will travel in a Mercedes Benz Safarimobile
which has been custom-built for group safaris or a Mercedes
Benz Sprinter bus. The Safarimobile provides comfortable
seating, with ample leg space, huge windows for game viewing
and individual lockers. For a "bird's eye-view", a section of
the vehicle opens, allowing guests to sit on the roof in areas
where it is permitted. An intercom system at each seat
facilitates easy communication with the guide.
The Sprinter bus is comfortable and equipped with an air conditioning
unit. This vehicle is ideal for our clients who prefer a more luxurious way of travel.

We arrive at the pristine Swadini Camp at the foot of the majestic Swadini Mountain in time to enjoy a South African braai before we retire to our chalets for a good
