Not wheelchair accessible
The adventure of Safari is often unpredictable so we advise that our guests kindly bring with them the following Safari gear:
Camera
Binoculars
A good bush hat for summer months or warm beanie in winter
Sunglasses
Comfortable shoes
What to Wear - Summer Months (September to April)
Cool functional attire preferably in dull darker shades to create uniformity with vehicle and not stand out visually to game species. Always remember a good hat as well as sunscreen. Midday temperatures can reach upward of 40 degrees and afternoons can experience thunder showers. All vehicles are equipped with blankets and waterproof ponchos for our guests.
What to Wear - Winter Months (May to August)
During the winter months we typically experience blue skies with a daily average temperature of 20 - 25 degrees celcius. Early morning and late afternoons are cooler and we recommend warmer attire as this is amplified when travelling on an open safari vehicle. We do provide blankets but long pants, jacket and beanie are recommended.
Lastly:
Children must be accompanied by an adult
Minimum age is 6 years
Passport name, number, expiry and country is required at time of booking for all participants
A current valid passport is required on the day of travel
Minimum of 2 people per booking
Most travelers can participate
This is a private tour/activity. Only your group will participate

    Kruger National Park
    Stop: 7 hours
    Our Sunrise Half Day Kruger Safari is perfect if you prefer to only spend a morning in the Park but still want to maximize on game sightings.Our Sunrise Safari departs early for you’re nearest gate of entry. We start from 05h15 in the summer months (Oct – Mar) and from 05h45 during the winter months (Apr – Sept). The early mornings offer a great opportunity to look for nocturnal species that are still active before the sun gets to high and the day warms up. This is a great time to look for Lion, Leopard, WildDog and Hyena. At around 08h00am we will take our first comfort break . After our stop we will continue looking for larger more common species such as Elephant, Giraffe, Zebra and Buffalo. Around 09h30 we will stop at one of the Camps should you still need breakfast. Our Safaris cover a wide variety of interests and we prefer not to rush around just searching for the Big 5. The Kruger is a large space with exceptional Bio-diversity, wonderful heritage and abundant wildlife.

Brilliant and extremely professional from start to finish!
Sep 2019 • Couples
We had an incredible private safari booked with Andrew. His knowledge and skill of identifying animals, their habitat, flora and fauna is unbelievable! We were so impressed in his ability, as a guide and, even more so with his personality and friendliness. He was able to relate and engage us in a way that we felt comfortable and relaxed to ask as many questions as we wanted (no matter how silly!). The four of us had some great laughs with him!

We spotted all the animals we wanted to see, it is an absolute skill to be able to drive and scout at the same time!! - in passing, we mentioned our like for owls and with that he especially kept an ear out for their call! Could not believe he actually found one perched on a tree in the distance! It was remarkable!

Booking online was simple, his response was always prompt and he organized all the paperwork work prior to our drive, which meant saving time at the gates. It is evident that his expertise comes from a genuine passion for what he does and the experience he’s had in the field. Absolutely unbeatable and affordable! As a bonus, Andrew also makes a killer Bush cappuccino!

Thank you so much for a memorable trip!! We will be back!

Most excellent host for an exciting, extremely interesting and fun game drive
Sep 2019
Andrew gave us a game drive that really blew ourselves and our visitors from NZ away. As regular bush people familiar with the park, Andrew added so much interest to the drive, that a route we were otherwise familiar with, came to life in a new and very exciting way. Our foreign guests couldn't have been more impressed. Andrew is the perfect game ranger for a drive through the park. He is full of facts, well organised and very entertaining. We had a ball and will definitely be doing this again. such great value for money.
