You’ve probably heard of the Big Five African safaris, but have you heard of the Big Seven? The “Big Five” include lions, leopards, rhinoceroses, elephants, and Cape buffalo. The “Big 7” is complete if you add the great white shark and whale! There is only one spot in the entire globe where the Big 7 may be seen, and that’s in South Africa’s Eastern Cape. This tour includes accommodations with a 4-star rating, but if you prefer, you can easily upgrade to a 5-star choice, on an extra cost.
Today you will arrive in Port Elizabeth, often known as Gqeberha, the Friendly City. You will be greeted when you arrive at Port Elizabeth International Airport and driven to your beachfront hotel, where you will spend two nights on a bed and breakfast basis. The evening might be spent strolling along the coastline or unwinding on your hotel’s terrace.
You’ll be driven to the harbor in plenty of time to depart from the PE Deep Sea Angling Club in the Port Elizabeth Harbor at approximately 7:30 am, and return at roughly 5:00 pm. During the cruise, a light meal and spring water are served. Visitors to the trip may see bottlenose dolphins, common dolphins, humpback dolphins, Southern right whales, humpback whales, Bryde’s whales, Minke whales, Cape fur seals, many species of seabirds, and other marine animals. Sharks (including great white sharks), African black oystercatchers, Cape cormorants, white-breasted cormorants, and different pelagic bird species like terns, petrels, skuas, shearwaters, and albatrosses are among the list of common marine animals. Although sightings are not guaranteed, the knowledgeable Raggy Charters skipper and guides make every effort to locate all of these incredible marine creatures so that you can appreciate them. After you will be transferred to your Hotel for dinner and overnight stay.
This morning, you will enjoy an early breakfast and check out of your room. Once more, a shuttle will be made from your accommodation to the harbor where your Algoa Bay half-day at-sea tour will depart from. The half-day whale, dolphin, and penguin island trip departs from PE Deep Sea Angling Club at approximately 8:00 am and returns by noon. It lasts between three and four hours. You’ll visit St. Croix Island and Brenton Island, two islands in Algoa Bay. The largest breeding colony of African penguins, numbering about 5,000, can be found on the islands, where you can get up close and personal with these amusing animals. Following your morning activity, you will be driven to your accommodation to pick up your belongings before setting off on a three-night safari in the Lalibela Game Reserve. When you go to Lalibela wildlife Reserve, you’ll be welcomed to your lodge and go on a wildlife drive in the afternoon before having a lavish dinner there.
Enjoy open-air game drives in the early morning and late at night with an experienced game ranger who will bring you up close and personal with a variety of game species, from the powerful elephant, lion, rhino, and buffalo to the little blue duiker and rock hyrax. The cheetah, hyena, hippo, giraffe, zebra, warthog, and many antelope species can all be found in Lalibela. We will hunt for the elusive bat-eared fox, aardvark, black-backed jackal, aardwolf, and curious spring hare during exhilarating night drives beneath the great African sky. You will take part in a total of 6 game drives over the course of your three-night stay (one on your arrival day and one on the morning of your departure). In between game drives, there is opportunity to unwind by the warm pool, observe birds from the observation deck, or read a book in privacy on the private veranda of your suite.
You’ll say your final goodbyes to this African Wonderland after your final morning game drive and brunch. You will be returned to reception, where you will meet your driver and be driven back to Port Elizabeth Airport.
