Day 1

Today will commence with you leaving Nelspruit as the sun rises and the birds are singing. You will take a comfortable drive to an incredible expanse of water surrounded by rugged mountains, then you have reached the breathtaking Blyde Canyon.

Once you have had your fill of this absolute beautiful scenery, you will continue to the amazingly incredible God’s Window. There, you will most certainly admire the true natural beauty and maybe take a walk along the amazing walkways. The next stop is the incredible Lisbon Falls which is truly one of the many wonders of the Lowveld.

Next on your itinerary is the wonderful world of the most amazingly naturally designed potholes known as the Bourke's Luck Potholes. With all this beauty fresh in your minds and captured on your cameras, you will head for the famous Harries Pancakes in Graskop. You sure deserve a truly delicious pancake from their wide selection of pancakes after all the amazing sights you have seen so far.

You will arrive at Kruger in the late afternoon. After settling in at the campsite, you will get ready for an exciting night drive, after which you settle under the truly beautiful African skies and sit back, relax, and delight in an authentic South African evening dinner in the form of a traditional braai.

Day 2 and 3

You will spend these days Bundi bashing and seeking out both the big and little five of the amazing Kruger National Park. After an exciting day of animal spotting, you will meet around the campfire, and catch up on your day and all the stories you shared whilst you enjoy a truly traditional South African braai under the African skies with the sounds of the animals in the distant background as they call out to one another.

Day 4

After a peaceful sleep in your camp, you will be awaken to the call of the animals as they too begin another day. After a quick breakfast of muffins, toast, tea, and coffee, you will begin the day with your last game drive as you leave Kruger and head towards Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre. There, you are fortunate enough to enjoy a tour of the center.

As you are guided around the center by your incredibly knowledgeable tour guide, you are introduced to some of the most amazing animals. These animals have, due to various reasons, found their home at this amazing center. Some of these animals include, cheetah, lion, honey badgers to name but a few. Once this amazing tour is complete, you will take a leisurely drive, arriving back in Nelspruit in the late afternoon.

Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve

Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve is situated in the Drakensberg escarpment region of eastern Mpumalanga, South Africa. The reserve protects the Blyde River Canyon, including sections of the Ohrigstad and Blyde Rivers and the geological formations around Bourke's Luck Potholes, where the Treur River tumbles into the Blyde below.

Southwards of the canyon, the reserve follows the escarpment, to include the Devil's and God's Window, the latter a popular viewpoint to the Lowveld at the reserve's southern extremity.

Kruger National Park

Kruger National Park, in northeastern South Africa, is one of Africa’s largest game reserves. Its high density of wild animals includes the Big Five: lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, and buffaloes. Hundreds of other mammals make their home here, as do diverse bird species such as vultures, eagles, and storks. Mountains, bush plains, and tropical forests are all part of the landscape.

Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre

Situated in the shadow of the majestic “Mariepskop”, this unique rehabilitation center is home to many animals and birds. Some of them are the rescued lions from an Egyptian circus, Queen the crowned eagle, Chui the leopard, Jolly and Juba the cheetah ambassadors, and many more.

The center has a long-standing and successful Serval Breeding Project which is a success story all of its own, having bred and released over 160 species back into areas where they have previously become extinct.

You may volunteer at Betty's Haven and lend a hand for some of the life-filling duties that are required to help amazingly appreciative kids with their schooling, assisting at the local kindergarten as these little one's soak up all your knowledge that you share with them.

If the kitchen is not your domain, the house is always calling for the odd job here and there, and not forgetting the garden that is always in need of a little tender loving care. All children at Betty's Haven have become orphans due to a variety of happenings in their unfortunate little lives. Some lost their parents to AIDS and they themselves battle with the disease on a daily basis.

Testimonials

  • Review by Gillian H from California

    "From day one it was a truly wonderful experience. The accommodation was comfortable and in lovely surroundings. It felt extremely safe and secure. Dave was a fabulous host and guide, he keeps you on your toes with quirky humor and genuine friendliness. Traveling through Kruger was one of the best experiences I've had. Dave is so knowledgeable about both the animals and bird life. I had heard that if there are animals to be found, Dave will find them. No truer word sad, in two days we had seen every one of the Big Five! I will be sure to encourage my friends in the US that a Safari with Dave is a must. I was sad to leave Old Vic."

  • Review by Laura from Ireland

    "Being from a little town in Northern Ireland it was wonderful to finally see leopards, lions, giraffe, elephants, rhino and more in person. Our guide, Ceska was just brilliant. She had been in the field for 18 years and still had such a passion for what she did! She knew exactly how to approach the animals - we were literally inches away from a male elephant. We also did our panoramic tour with Ceska, again it was beautiful, getting to see the more scenic aspects of South Africa. It's difficult to put into words how great our experience was with Kruger Flexi Tours - it was just so good, to sum up, you won't be a disappointed! A well organised tour :)"

    "AMAZING! They guides are very informative and nice. They joke and take you to what you wanna see and ask when you're done observing the animal or if you want to stay a bit longer. You really feel like your voice is heard and you see everything you want to. Well timed stops, and great souvenirs. Great experience."

  • Review by Tim from Mequon, Wisconsin, USA

    "A true once-in-a-lifetime adventure. We did the lion king tour: WOW! Started with a full day in Kruger with tons of sightings. Very nice lunch off the beaten path then settled into nice and modest accommodations in the park. We did a night tour with a Kruger guide, terrific sightings. Next day early started, lots of animals, including a whole pride of lions on a kill, almost all to ourselves. After another lunch, we settled into true luxury and excellence in service: a private reserve. I don't think five stars is enough! Food, private game drives, intimate setting. Eating breakfast while the monkeys play on the porch and a hippo walks to the watering hole. We were so close to a pride of lions we heard the cub suckling his mother! Food, drinks, and over-the-top service. Day three was another game drive and then a tour of the natural wonders of the area. Best vacation ever! Dave is organized, flexible and a genuinely friendly person. It seems like he knows everybody. The lion king tour is more pricey than the others, but it is worth every cent if you are keenly interested in the best safari experience in South Africa."

  • Review by a traveler from Cape Town Central, South Africa

    "We booked a tour at the hostel we were staying, Old Vic Travellers' Inn in Nelspruit. The tour included two days Kruger and Blyde River Canyon. We had such a great time! Dave (owner of the hostel) was a great guide, he was so excited and showed us a lot of animals. We had a 'braai' with the group at the accommodation in Kruger where we slept. The tour included a night drive in the park, which was really cool. The second day we did a short tour in Kruger and went to Blyde River Canyon. On the way there, we visited some other beautiful places such as Gods' Window. At the end of the trip, we ate some delicious pancakes at harries"

    "We had two wonderful days with a great guide and a really well-organized trip!"

  • Review by Collin P.

    "Overall: Fantastic experience, highly recommended! My group of five (US medical students in our mid-20s) booked the two-day, one-night Kruger tour and had an amazing time. The owner and tour guide, Dave, was a great host who kept us laughing the whole time while providing lots of interesting information about the plants and animals we saw and life in South Africa."

    "Kruger Tour: We were spoiled with an incredible first visit to Kruger, spotting the Big 5 (rhino, elephant, lion, leopard, and buffalo) within the first few hours, as well as at least a dozen other species, common and rare. Dave reminded us often that we were extremely lucky to have come across so many animals, and while this is true, Dave’s extensive experience with the park surely played a large part in that. I’m also confident that even if we had been particularly unlucky and seen few animals, Dave would still have made the tour entertaining and exciting. "

    "Accommodations: The rooms we stayed in (camp: Lower Sabie) were quite nice, with outlets to charge our cameras, refrigerators, AC, a general store, and either communal or en-suite bathrooms and showers (towels provided). While I cannot confirm that other camps in the park where you might stay have all the same amenities, I would expect that they do."

    "Food: While we embarked on a sunset or night game drive, Dave cooked up a delicious dinner that was ready when we returned. The steak, corn, and salad was a simple but perfect meal to finish of our day, leaving us satisfied and ready to rest for the early morning to come. Each morning, Dave also provided coffee, tea, and toast with butter and jam. "

    "Drakkenberg or Blythe Canyon Tour: The second half of our second day, Dave took us out of the park and up into the nearby Drakkenberg mountain range. We made a few different stops, admiring tall waterfalls and breathtaking views. The view of the Three Rondavels was particularly stunning, providing numerous opportunities for great pictures."

    "Tour guide: As mentioned above, Dave was absolutely fantastic. A consummate host, you can tell he takes pride in providing the best possible tours to his guests. He came highly recommended from colleagues, and I can’t recommend him enough. In addition to providing an exciting and fun tour, he went out of his way to accommodate us with short notice and a convoluted departure schedule."

  • Review by Ronen G. from Tel Aviv, Israel

    "We took a three-day safari tour. All three of our guides - Dave, Siska, and Ted were so amazing, we didn't want to leave the safari."

    "We managed to see all of the big five (and much more), but to say the truth, your experience with Flexi tours is special for many other reasons. All of our guides did everything they could to make us comfortable and happy. They answered all of our (many) questions and engaged in such an interesting conversation."

    "We were told we came on a busy long weekend in South Africa (between elections and women's day), and that would affect our experience, but it simply didn't."

    "We were also told that three days in Kruger Park were too much, but we couldn't get enough of this tour! "

    "The morning tours provide breathtaking sunrises, the evenings are filled with unique sunset or night tours, and Dave makes delicious dinners, for vegetarians as well!"

    "Flexi tour's guides are experienced, fascinating guides that provide the best tours to find. "

    "Thank you, Dave, Siska, and Ted! We can't wait to come back!"

    "Fue una experiencia maravillosa gracias a Dave y a su equipo! Muchas gracias! Pudimos ver los "big five" gracias a que Dave nos condujo por el parque en diferentes horas del día, incluyendo el amanecer y la noche! Al final de la tarde y todos los días, él mismo nos preparó una exquisita cena: el típico brai o asado africano. Lo recomiendo ampliamente. Gracias Dave."
