Patrons of the Sesolo Three Countries Road-trip Challenge are set to enjoy six glorious days that will start with enchanting road trips through rugged mountains in Botswana and Swaziland and end with enjoyable cruises in the sea, solitary walks on sandy beaches, adventures in breathtaking glaciers and wild partying on the beach in Mozambique. The promise was made by Mmoloki Ossie Mmolotsi, Chief Operations Officer of Rea Vaya Travel & Tours; the agency that organises Sesolo. He said the Three Countries Road-trip Challenge is an unforgettable holiday experience that takes the traveller on a roller coaster journey from Botswana to South Africa, Swaziland and Mozambique. “Everything is in place and we expect a group of about 500 people who will be transported with 10 buses. Sesolo is a well packaged trip and we promise all our patrons the best six days of their lives,” said Mmolotsi. The trip will start from Botswana on December 16. Each bus will have dedicated personnel that include a crowd controller/security officer, a photographer and a bus manager. The convoy will cross into South Africa via the Tlokweng and Ramotswa borders. There will be one hour stops at Water Fall Mall in Rustenburg and Alzu Filling Station in Petrosport. After crossing into Swaziland through the Oeshok Border, on the morning of December 17th, the team will check into their respective hotels to freshen up before heading to Gables Mall for breakfast. Activities for the day will start at around 1100hrs with a Cultural Tour at Mantenga Nature Reserve and Cultural Village, where travellers will discover the Swazi culture, explore its rich nature and enjoy the soothing sounds of rhythmic drums. Known for its famous sounds of chirping birds, rhythmic drum beats and cultural songs, Mantegana also offers top notch accommodation facilities, breathtaking waterfalls as well as occasional wildlife like warthog, nyala and vervet monkeys.
In the evening, the group will enjoy Swaziland’s night life at a Welcome Bash hosted at Solani’s Executive Lounge, Swaziland’s premier entertainment spot. The group will cross over to Mozambique’s pristine Portuguese Islands on 18 December, where they will swim in the warm, crystalline ocean waters or just stroll around the enchanting six kilometre long island. In the evening they will once again be transferred to the Inhaca Island by boat, where they will spend two glorious nights. “Inhaca Island is a nature lover’s paradise, with mangroves, dune forests, coral reefs and beautiful beaches. It has over 300 different bird species. Our guests will also get to enjoy Ihanca’s beautiful nightlife,” said Mmolotsi. There will also be fun activities like tug of war, beach marathon, treasure hunt, snorkelling, beach spas, whale watching and boat cruising. Mmolotsi added that Ihanca has charming restaurants and beach bars that offer a wide variety of sea foods. “The Sesolo Beach Festival will start in the afternoon until 12 midnight, featuring big artists and DJ’s from Botswana, Swaziland and Mozambique,” said Mmolotsi. The next day the party will board their buses back to Maputo before crossing over to enjoy Johannesburg’s night life. On the last day, the party will enjoy shopping at the Mall of Africa before travelling back to Botswana.
