Tailormade Safaris for Cruise Ships docking at Richards Bay

Jan 20th 2015 at 8:56 PM

Are you traveling by cruise ship and docking at Richards Bay, South Africa? If so, contact Clickety Click Safaris. We will provide a tailormade safari for you to enjoy one of our Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park Game Drives or a visit to the iSimangaliso Wetland Park once your ship docks in Richards Bay.


Richards Bay port on the east coast of South Africa, built in 1976 as a multipurpose terminal, has now expanded into a port that not only exports and imports commodities, but also welcomes international cruise ships and their passengers.



Its extremely close proximity to the iSimangaliso Wetland Park and the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Game Park has made it a perfect stop off for the international cruise ships, such as Seabourn, Regent Seven Seas Cruises, Oceania Cruises, Voyages of Discovery, Costa Cruise Lines, Crystal Cruises, Silversea Cruises and Princess Cruises. Their passengers can easily enjoy a one or two day, tailormade safari in one of these fabulous Game Reserves.


Richards Bay really has become the gateway to Zululand for passengers of these cruise ships. Clickety Click Safaris collects passengers from the port, drives them through to either the iSimangaliso Wetland Park or the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Game Park, where they can enjoy one of our Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park Game Drives or a tailormade safari in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. This region of Zululand has a huge variety game parks and an abundance of diverse wildlife and Clickety Click Safaris is here to provide you with a tailormade safari to suit your desires and budget.



Sebourn Sojourn docked in Richards bay on the 11th January 2015 and Clickety Click Safaris, together with Bhangazi Horse Safaris, provided Nick and Pat Hood with a tailormade safari. Pat is a keen rider, so she booked a 4-hour horse safari with Bhangazi Horse Safaris, whilst Nick, being more keen to keep his feet on the ground, enjoyed a 2-hour bush walk followed by a 2-hour game safaris in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park.




Clickety Click Safaris collected Nick and Pat from the Sebourn Sojourn and drove them the 75kms to St Lucia. Upon arrival at the stables of Bhangazi Horse Safaris, Pat was kitted up for the first park of her ride, a 2-hour private game ride in the iSimanglaiso Wetland Park and off she trotted.




During Nick’s bush walk he was lucky enough to get extremely close to the zebras, impalas, warthogs and wildebeest. A fabulous lunch was enjoyed together in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, then Pat trotted off for the second part of her tailormade safari, a 2-hour horse ride along St Lucia’s pristine, golden, sandy beaches. Nick hopped into the vehicle and headed into the iSimangaliso Wetland Park for his game safari.


Once these fabulous experiences of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park were enjoyed, Clickety Click Safaris drove Nick and Pat back to the Seabourn Sojourn where they could relax and compare notes of their exciting tailormade safari in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park.


Clients review: That was a great day. Thank you, Tori, Mishy and Dee for your kindnesses, care and attention. Pat is showing little evidence of ' first time in 2 years' on a horse........a hot bath and gin followed by good SA wine worked ! I hear her telling many others just how good was Dee and how she enjoyed THE experience. Towards the end of the walk with Mishy I envied Pat her transport! In spite of no beer, the walk and the drive with Mishy were special. Her enthusiasm, energy and knowledge triggered me...... a great experience and there is nothing better than seeing content wildlife up-close on foot.

We shall do all we can to push your programme/s to all our SA friends and family and to enterprising Brits. Best wishes to y'all. Nick
