Guests will be collected from their accommodation establishments in the morning and head towards Nelspruit town.
First stop will be the Jane Goodall Chimpanzee Eden set on a 1 000 hectare Game Reserve a mere 15 km from the bustling city of Nelspruit. A trained guide will take visitors to the location of the Chimpanzees. The viewing deck provides visitors with the unique opportunity to view the primates as they approach the deck during guided tours.
Next stop is the Nelspruit Botanical Gardens. The character of the Garden is shaped by the two main rivers that cut across it, namely the Crocodile River and Nels River. Before these two rivers converge in the Garden, they form spectacular waterfalls which can be viewed at the Cascades and the Nels viewpoints.
Depending on the size and fitness level of the group the Riverside Trail could be included. The trail stretches over 1km, descends to the banks of the Crocodile River and ends up back in the Garden.
After a visit to the information centre, a light lunch will be enjoyed in the Kuzuri open-air restaurant adjacent to the Botanical Gardens (included - all soft and alcoholic drinks for own account).
Guests will be returned to their accommodation establishments in the afternoon.
