Full Day Kruger National Park

By Big 5 Safaris
About
Experience the diversity that the renowned Kruger National Park has to offer from the comfort of our open safari vehicles. After an early pick up you will enter the Park followed by an exciting day of finding the most iconic animal and bird species. Your guide will stop and prepare a delicious brunch at a designated picnic spot within the park often frequented by elephants. As the temperatures rise throughout the day we plan to stop for a late lunch at one of the rest camps, where guests can freshen up and use the facilities while animals seek shade. Drive back out towards the exit while stopping at waterholes full of animal activity and enjoy a beautiful African sunset on the way!

        Phenomenal experience with Big 5 Safaris
        Lauren arranged a phenomenal 2 week trip for my family to South Africa that included game drives as well as local activities. We stayed in a variety of lodges throughout our excursion and enjoyed the ambience and incredibly attentive staff of each one. Our game drives included not only multiple sightings of the big five, but also a diverse assortment of mammals, birds and reptiles—including the elusive honey badger and pangolin! Lauren organized and provided a thorough and impeccably well planned trip that didn’t just meet our requests -she exceeded them in every area. She had also arranged spectacular hunting excursions for my husband which he declared was the best hunting trip he’s ever had in South Africa. We can’t wait to travel back to South Africa and enjoy new adventures with Lauren .

      Top xperience : Herman is a gentle guide with great experience & passion who will make your day 100% according expectations. YES, he also tracked & guided us towards a leopard but his driving skills combined with (not too much) explanations & funny stories, made yesterday a perfect day. Thanks Herman & for sure, see you soon!!

      We had an amazing enjoyable day with Herman and Lauren in the Krueger National Park. As this was a full day undertaking it was very good that the explanations and details the guides shared were just the right amount to not get overloaded with all the possible information about animals and plants in the park. Herman was a great driver paying utmost attention to the animals and always staying save yet close distance to Lions, Buffalo, Giraffe, Elephants, Rhino and many many more. Not to forget the breakfast int he middle of nowhere with scrambled eggs and fruits. Just remarkable.

      We had a fantastic time touring the park! Our guide, Herman, was so knowledgeable and patient (we asked a lot of questions)! He knew all the places to take us, tracked the different animal prints, identified all the birds, and plants/trees. He was able to keep it interesting for our group which included 2 teenagers and 4 adults. The photos that are included are from that day on the tour! He also made a delicious brunch for us😋! I would definitely do this again! Thanks for a great experience, Herman!!

      We 100% recommend signing these guys for a full day at the Kruger National Park! Herman’s passion for animals really comes through, and he will bend over backwards to give you a fantastic experience! We were lucky to have him to take us two whole days, during which he customised the day to suit both adults, teens and our eight year old. Without flinching, he showed us all the beautiful animals and scenery and we saw so much more that we would have expected going on our own. Lauren spoilt us rotten with her special packed breakfast from the Lodge, she was truly attentive to our needs and oddities in the gourmet world - we felt we were being treated like royals in every way. If you go to Kruger for a game drive, these guys are it! Best thing is, it wasn’t even that expensive but very good value for money.
