Sam’s Tour endeavors to give you an Authentic insight into the true African rural village life and how the local people are dealing with combining tradition with inevitably changing life situations. This is not a tour for the faint-hearted, but for those prepared to immerse for a while into a different way of life. The tour includes a visit to the premises of a one of the largest distribution centres for traditional remedies, headed by a Nyanga; as well as a sangoma training school with a performance of a dance in trance (“entrances” included). A visit to a church community centre caring for local children and a governmental primary school are also included (minimal donations included, should you wish to make additional donations, your guide will advise you accordingly or you may contact us in advance for requirements). This truly is an honest and worthwhile experience.
You will be collected from your hotel and transferred to the Elephant Sanctuary. An experienced guide will introduce you to the elephants and you will have an up, close and personal interaction with these gentle animals.
Touching, feeding and walking with them trunk-in-hand whilst learning about their background, behaviours', characteristics and more,
An elephant ride is also available. Though this amazing experience was traditionally reserved for those of royalty - it is an extremely humbling African journey to take.
After the tour you will be transferred back to your hotel.
You will be collected from your hotel and transferred to the last remaining natural forested valleys along the Sabie River, where you will experience the thrill of Africa’s longest aerial cable trail; the freedom of gliding down into the valley basin, stopping along the way on a number of elevated platforms to admire the natural vegetation, birdlife and the views of the forest floor below. Each section varies in length from 70 to 230 metres linking a total of 10 platforms. The trail has been designed and built to South African civil engineering standards and all the equipment has been designed specifically for this activity - tried and tested worldwide. Qualified guides escort all groups.
There’s just not enough time in a day to cover all the nostalgic beauty that the Panorama Tour has to offer. Too much to see and too much to experience in this corner of the world, but you cannot miss out on the unique landscape carved out by this enchanting escarpment. The Blyde Canyon is said to be the largest green canyon in the world.

A lunch stop (not included) can be made en route. A drive through Pilgrim’s Rest, the historical gold mining town, can be included when driving through Sabie.
