GAME VIEWING SAFARI INSIDE THE KRUGER NATIONAL PARK.

You will depart at 5:30 a.m. Your personal guide will cook you breakfast, overlooking on the waterholes. You will be served a packed breakfast on the half-day safari so as not to encroach on the game viewing time.

You will be leaving the lodge at about 4:15 a.m. and be back at the lodge at about 10 a.m. for a well-deserved, hearty breakfast.

Tracking of animals and the medicinal use of plants and trees are just a few of the topics that will be covered, as well as identification and habits of birds and animals. Sightings of some of the Big Five is a realistic possibility, therefore you will be accompanied by two armed guides. Please note that no children under 12 years old can attend this activity.

SUNSET SAFARI INSIDE THE KRUGER NATIONAL PARK.

On the sunset drive, you get to see all the nocturnal animals of Kruger that are usually absent during the day. Experience an unforgettable sunset that only Africa can produce. Spotlights are provided on the open safari vehicle to help in the hunt for the glinting eyes of nocturnal animals.

This is an adventure not to be missed. You will depart the lodge at 3:45 p.m. and arrive at Kruger where the sunset drive will start from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Back at the lodge, a delicious three-course candle-lit dinner will be waiting for you in the boma under the African Sky.
