Overnight at a lodge with beautiful views (free roaming animals around the lodge). Have dinner at a lovely and cozy restaurant.

Day 2 and 3: Balule Private Game Reserve

Depart after a good breakfast and cover some areas you missed on route to Balule Private Game Reserve. You book into a private lodge and relax on a viewing deck with lovely cold drinks. In the late afternoon, you depart on an open safari vehicle for game viewing pleasure. This is a safari on the wild side as you go off road to look for the animals.

Stop for drinks on the banks of the Olifants River and enjoy the beauty of the African sunsets. On return to the lodge for about 3 hours, later your hosts will serve a traditional South African dinner. African drums call you to a Boma where dinner will be served. Going to bed here is generally a treat as the sounds of the African bush linger around. You will also have morning walks with a guide and be looking for wild animals. Return and relax until the next drive in the late afternoon.

Day 4 and 5: Kruger National Park

Following a morning bush walk and a good breakfast, you depart for Kruger National Park. Enjoy game drive safari daily in this vast place which is bigger than Israel, specifically 2 million hectares, where wild animals roam freely and you are the visitors, proof time and time again to bring a new surprise every day around every corner!

Have the first-night overnight at Skukuza Camp (availability permitting) and dinner in the restaurant. Have the second-night overnight at Skukuza or Pretoriuskop camps (availability permitting). Enjoy breakfast and dinner at the restaurant or alternatively around a bushfire under the African sky. Choose from traditional South African dinners and South African wine. This is a great experience especially for people who have not been to Kruger at all.

Day 6: Departure day

Enjoy breakfast and another early morning drive to try and catch some of the species that could possibly still have eluded you! Depart from Kruger around midday and drive back to O. R.
