Endless Summer Tours invites you to join them in this safari in Kruger National Park, South Africa! They offer private safaris for couples, friends, and families, which gives you the ultimate flexibility, and along with their passion for wildlife and their attention to detail, makes their trips very special. Moreover, indulge in some authentic South African cuisine, prepared and served to you under the splendor of the African stars!
During this safari, you will stay at the bungalows in the actual camps, within the actual Big Five Kruger Game Reserve. Bungalows are single bedroom units with en-suite bathroom, air conditioning, and thatch roofs. Some have communal kitchens while others have kitchenettes with basic kitchen equipment. Some bungalows have perimeter or river views, while others have been upgraded to luxury status.
Endless Summer Tours will pick you up at O. R. Tambo International Airport (JNB) or JHB accommodation and transport you to the Kruger National Park. After booking into your accommodation, you will embark on your first small game drive to get your first feel of the African bush. The length of the drive will depend on what time you manage to leave the airport and how tired you the weary traveler is.
Watch the sunset over the savanna as you begin ticking off the myriad of wildlife this incredible place has to offer. Expect to see antelope, giraffe, and elephant, but who knows, perhaps as the day cools, the elusive predators might show themselves! After gate closing, it is a quick dinner prepared on open coals, before heading to bed in preparation for an exciting second day.
It is an early rise as the camp gates open at sunrise. There is a reason for this, besides the opportunity to witness an incredible African sunrise, it also increases the chance of seeing the nocturnal predators still moving about. Not to worry though, a hot cup of coffee / tea will be on hand to kick start those engines.
You will head out into the reserve, one of the benefits of staying in the Kruger camps is that you will be out in the deep wilderness within seconds of leaving your bungalow. You will drive around searching for wildlife for a few hours and then stop in a beautiful location for a snack breakfast, comprising of fruit, rusks (South African biscuit), muffins, and yogurt, along with a coffee / tea.
Then, it is off again to continue your safari adventure. Mid-morning is a great time to see the herbivores moving towards the waterholes to drink as the land begins to warm and the predators tend to slow down. It is around 11:00, just as your tummies start to rumble, that your guide will pull up to a picnic area and prepare you a cooked breakfast. These picnic areas are situated on rivers and waterholes, giving you a chance to put your feet up and watch the animals come to you.
You then head back to camp for the heat of the day. It is up to you what you would like to do, take a walk around, sit at the fence and enjoy the fence and watch the animals come past, or simply take a nap. Once the heat of the day passes, enjoy a snack lunch of cheese, biscuits, biltong (South African meat), and other goodies. You will then join the park safari guides for a sunset drive, in their open game drive vehicles.
You will head out an hour before sunset, and when the darkness descends, pull out spotlights to find the animals. This nighttime activity allows you the chance to see some nocturnal animals that you would not see during the day usually, as well as predators like lion and leopard are more active.
You will arrive back in the camp to a hearty meal prepared on the braai (barbecue). This is a long-standing South Africa tradition and always a firm favorite. Gather round the campfire with the sounds of the wilderness as your company.
Once again, head out early for a game drive but this time, return to camp for your breakfast snacks. Then, you pack up and check out as you move to another area of the reserve. Endless Summer Tours always like to move to give you a chance to experience different views and habitats. The entire time you are on the game drive and so will still be viewing and ticking animals of your ever-increasing list. Again, in the middle morning, you will have a cooked brunch at a picnic spot and then keep heading onward to your new camp.
Check into your new environment in the early afternoon and enjoy some leisure time. As the sun dips and things start to cool, head out on a drive with your private guide and vehicle. Your highly qualified guide will use all his experience to find you anything that may be missing from the animal list. Certain animals like certain habitats, so knowing this and a keen eye are essential to spotting something out of the ordinary.
Enjoy your final sunset, before heading to camp for a delicious farewell dinner. Chat around the crackling campfire and recalling the memories of your adventure-filled last few days. An ever-increasing under the incredible African stars is the perfect send off!
Today, you depart the Kruger, but not before one last memorable game drive. You will head out with the park guides in the open vehicle once again, using the spotlight before the sunrise. As there has been no traffic overnight, being the first ones out increases your chance of seeing something on the road and to get up close and personal. You will then return to the camp for a quick breakfast and to check out of your accommodation. Head for the exit gate but keep your eyes peeled as anything could pop out of the bush!
