This Kruger Park safari begins and ends in Johannesburg.

Day 1: Johannesburg - Kruger National Park

Depart from Johannesburg between 07h00 and 07h30 in the morning and make our way to the Kruger National Park, arriving around 12h00.

Before entering the Kruger we will stop for lunch in one of the small town's en-route to the park. Our first afternoon will be spent driving inside the Kruger searching for wild animals, accompanied by a professional guide, who gladly divulges information to you, on the parks amazing diversity of wild and plant life.

Back at camp in the late afternoon, our guide begins preparing the evening meal, under the stars and served by candlelight. Apart from the cooking your guide is of course available to identify all the nocturnal sounds you hear, and possibly entertain you with some amazing experiences encountered over many years of guiding in Africa. Wine is served and included in evening meals.

Included meals: Dinner

Day 2: Kruger National Park

The early morning wake up call, signals the start of your second day in the Kruger Park. After a cup of coffee and some snacks, your guide packs the vehicle and you begin your early morning drive. It's still really early in the morning, nice and cool, and a perfect time to spot elusive predators that at this time of the day are still very active.

After a successful morning drive you stop at a picnic spot to enjoy a relaxed breakfast. After breakfast we continue driving, searching for animals. You will find your guide to be a wealth of knowledge not only concentrating on animals but also identifying birds, trees, insects and explains some of the parks fascinating geology.

After a full morning's driving we return to the camp where you have a couple of hours to relax during the hottest part of the day, when animals are generally less active and hiding from the midday sun.

In the late afternoon you will again embark upon a game drive which gives you an opportunity to hopefully spot some of the animals that have eluded you thus far. Upon your return, your guide will prepare your evening meal.

Included meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 3: Kruger National Park to Johannesburg

Safaris are all about early mornings, getting out there and seeing animals. This morning is no exception and whilst you are leaving the Kruger Park today, there is still time for a couple of hours drive in the hope of seeing and possibly photographing animals you have not yet seen. Your guide knows the Kruger intimately and will focus on areas he knows produce animals you still need to see, it's not guaranteed but you stand a good chance.

After breakfast we return to Johannesburg. The drive back takes at least 6 hours and guests are advised to sleep over in Johannesburg on this night.

Included meals: Breakfast

Optional Excursion (Panorama Route)

We offer an optional excursion to visit select attractions along the Panorama Route on this safari. We stop in one of the small towns en-route for breakfast (included) and visit attractions such as the Blyde River Canyon, Three Rondavels, Lisbon Waterfalls and God's Window. We return to Skukuza at around 11h00.

This excursion is available free of charge, replaces the morning drive on day 2 and will be co-ordinated by our staff while you are on safari with us. Kindly note that this excursion is not available on the first or last day of your safari due to time constrictions.
