Day 1

Your Kruger National Park safari begins with collections from Johannesburg town and the airport. Kruger National Park is South Africa’s premier game reserve and it is located in the subtropical savannahs’ of the low veld and provides ideal conditions for wildlife. The park is surrounded by private nature reserves and many of them have removed fences allowing wildlife to roam between the main park and the private game reserves. This whole area is known as the Greater Kruger and is ideal for safaris. Your first game drive is in the private reserve of Balule. Your drive continues into the evening and you'll have an opportunity to view nocturnal animals using spotlights. All game drives are conducted in open 4x4 vehicles. A traditional braai barbecue is enjoyed under the stars deep in the African bush. The night is spent at a comfortable lodge. Note that the Balule Game Reserve is a Big five reserve and is connected to the Kruger National Park. All fences have been removed to allow for the free roaming of animals.

The included meal of the day is dinner.
