We meet you at a pre-arranged pick up point. Our tour kicks off with a drive from the top of the plateau down to the town of Nelspruit.  We then drive to the border of Mozambique, passing the southern point of the Kruger National Park. En route we stop for breakfast, lunch and at selected places so you can stretch your legs, use restrooms and so on.  After the border formalities, we will make our way up to beautiful Bilene, a small town surrounded by inland lakes. Here we go to the camp site where you can settle in. .  In the evening we enjoy a typical Portuguese dinner at a local restaurant.

Day 2 : Getting to know Bilene

We start the day with an early morning swim in the clear waters of the inland lake. After our refreshing swim we enjoy a scrumptious breakfast, after which you can relax on the beach at our campsite. Your guide will organize you a boat trip across the inland lake to the beaches of the Indian Ocean after which your local guide will then take you for a walk along the beach to one of the spots where you might be lucky enough to observe the Hawksbill and Green Turtles which make the Bilene area their home. The rest of the day can be spent familiarizing yourself with the local fisherman and maybe even going prawning with them. This is an excellent time to immerse yourself in their culture and to get to know how the locals live. There is a local market where you can find an assortment of curios, and taking a walk around town is a must. In the evening we enjoy a Fish Barbecue.
