Day 1: Johannesburg – Kruger Park (D)
Today you will be picked up at a pre-determined meeting point in Johannesburg. Depending on where you are staying in the city your pick-up time will be between 6:00 - 8:00am. Travel for about 6 hours through the Highveld and Lowveld areas and admire the wide open African bush and scenic landscapes. We will make a stop for lunch (not included) before reaching Kruger National Park in the afternoon. Get settled in your accommodation and then grab your camera for your first game drive around sunset.
A shared sunset game drive will allow you the chance to see nocturnal animals with a Kruger Park ranger in a Kruger vehicle. This game drive is shared and there will be other guests on the drive.
Return to camp for a three course meal under the stars served with a glass of wine. If you prefer alternative snacks or drinks, you can purchase them at the camp store. Get a good night’s rest and recharge your batteries for an exciting day ahead!
Days 2 & 3: Full Days in the Park (2B/2D)
Safaris are all about early mornings, getting out there and seeing animals! On these days, after an early wake-up call (the time varies according to the seasons and park gate opening times), we have tea or coffee & muffins. Your morning safari will last about 3-4 hours with a knowledgeable guide who will explain interesting facts about the park and animal behaviour.
Return to camp for a midmorning breakfast/brunch and then relax for a while. Take advantage of your free time to take a nap, go swimming, visit the park shop, or take a walk around the camp. In the afternoon you will take another game drive to spot more wild animals and big game. Return to the camp this evening for a rewarding and delicious dinner and stories around the campfire under the starry night sky.
All safari game drives are conducted in a 4x4 open-sided vehicle for the best wildlife viewing and photographic opportunities. The vehicles have a roof to protect passengers from sun and light rain.
Day 4: Kruger Park – Johannesburg (B)
Today we will say goodbye to the fabulous Kruger Park on our last morning game drive and our last chance to spot the elusive animals we didn’t see during our trip. Have breakfast back at camp and then make the 6-hour drive back to Johannesburg today passing through the Lowveld and Highveld with beautiful scenery. We recommend guests to plan on sleeping overnight in Johannesburg tonight. You will be dropped off at a pre-determined meeting point.
Note: On the last day, we plan on being back in Johannesburg between 5pm and 6pm, however, because we have multiple drop-off points we cannot guarantee any specific return time. If you are flying out of Johannesburg on the same day, please don't book any flight departing before 8pm.
