Day 1

You will leave Johannesburg between 04:00 and 04:30 in the morning and make your way to Kruger National Park, arriving at about 09:30, depending on what gate you will enter. You will stop for lunch in one of the small towns en-route to the Kruger National Park. You will spend your first afternoon inside the park searching for wild animals with a professional guide who will gladly inform you about the park's amazing diversity and behavior of wildlife.

You will reach Kruger Park Camp in the late afternoon where you will check in at your accommodation and go for a swim, purchase necessary items at the camp's shop, or take a stroll around the camp to stretch your legs after a long scenic day of travel. Your guide will prepare the evening South Africa meal in the camp under the stars.

He will also be available to identify all the nocturnal sounds you hear and possibly entertain you with some amazing experiences he encountered over many years of guiding in Africa. Wine is served and included in evening meals.

Day 2 - 4

An early morning knock on your door signals the start of your day in the Kruger National Park. After a cup of coffee and some rusks, you will begin your early morning drive. It’s a nice and cool early morning, a perfect time to spot some elusive predators that might still be on the hunt. After a successful morning game drive, you will stop at a picnic spot and camp to enjoy a relaxed breakfast or brunch.

After breakfast or brunch, you will continue driving to search for wildlife. With a wealth of knowledge, your guide will identify not only mammals, but also birds and trees as well. After a full morning of driving, you will arrive back at the camp and have a couple of hours to relax during the hottest part of the day when most of the wildlife mammals are generally less active and hiding from the midday sun. You will also have bushwalks with a park ranger later in the day.

The camp has restaurant facilities so you will be able to purchase lunch. In the evening, you will embark on a night drive which will give you an opportunity to spot some of Africa’s elusive nocturnal mammals such as lion, hyena, leopard, owls, civet, genet, etc. Upon your return, your guide will have prepared your evening meal with wine that is sufficiently aired and at the perfect temperature. Sitting outside on a balmy African night listening to lions roaring in the distance or the whooping call of a hyena offers you a fantastic experience.

During your stay at Kruger National Park, you will also be able to enjoy bushwalks with a park ranger.

Day 5

Safaris are all about early mornings, getting out there, and seeing the splendid wildlife. This morning is no exception and leaving Kruger National Park today, you will have about two hours drive on your way out in the hope of seeing and possibly photographing the wildlife you have not yet seen.

Sadly, after a couple of hours you depart today Kruger and make your way back to Johannesburg. But not before seeing some of South Africa’s most spectacular scenery such on the Panorama route which includes: Blyde River Canyon, Three Rondavels, Lisbon Waterfalls, and Lucky Bourkes Potholes, where you stop for lunch en-route at Kombuis Restaurant on the Blyde River. The Panorama route sightseeing is optional and comes at an additional cost.

After visiting the great sightseeing attraction it’s a good four hours drive back to Johannesburg and you arrive back at your hotel here at around 19:30.

Testimonials

  • Review by Paul Maclean from United Emirates

    "The villa at six Nettleton was in a great location and Shibula was everything we could have asked for in the short period of time. The organization was fantastic, thanks to you and the rest of the gang; we need to come back as the kids still need to see lion and hippo to check off the big five."

    "I had an amazing time and this was truly an experience of a lifetime. The lodging you arranged was excellent, the game drives were fantastic and I got to see four of the big five in such short time. Having a bunch of lions run after our car was also an experience that I will never forget and I will always have documented as proof that it actually happened."

    "The people were friendly and warm. The service fantastic and the food delicious."
