Program

Day 1: Arrival to Kruger National Park

The optional shuttle from Johannesburg to Kruger Park leaves either at 6:45 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. from the OR Tambo bus terminal behind the Intercontinental Hotel at an additional cost.

Alternatively, Kruger Park Tours do collect from Nelspruit Airport at 1:15 p.m. at an additional cost and Skukuza Airport (at any time). This provides flexibility to get to the safari. A scenic drive with fantastic photographic opportunities takes you through the escarpment and the Lowveld to the Kruger National Park when taking the shuttle service from Johannesburg. Kruger Park Tours advise guests to buy take-out meals at the standard road stop (not included).

Safari goers taking the 6:45 a.m. shuttle enjoy a SANParks sunset game drive continuing after dark, while the guests taking the later shuttle will have a night game drive on an open-sided safari truck. Should guests arrive from the 11 a.m. shuttle, they will first have dinner before departing on the activity. Guests meet the guide and/or host to check into the accommodation.

Dinner after the sunset game drive or before the night drive is pre-paid for on a set rate of 250 ZAR per person per night to choose drinks and meals from the rest camp restaurant menu. Different delicious dinner options are included to cater for various dietary needs. Exchange stories of Africa and listen to the sounds of the immense wilderness around you.

Day 2 to 6: Kruger National Park

The day starts early (after the game rangers or hosts’ wake-up call). The start time of your morning drive will depend on rest camp gate opening times (as it differs throughout the year) and you may still be able to see nocturnal animals.

From April to September, the rest camp gates open at 6:00 a.m. November to January the gates open at 4:30 a.m. And in February, March, and October the rest camp gates open at 5:30 a.m.

Enjoy hot beverages or juice with rusks. The morning game drive of approximately four hours offers guests the opportunity to cover vast distances and experience wild Africa like never before, to spot a vast array of interesting wildlife.

After the morning game drive, brunch is a full English breakfast buffet. The optional Panorama route occurs directly after brunch (available once during this safari). Guests not taking the optional Panorama route excursion can have a rest break until the afternoon game drive at 15:00 p.m.

Animal sightings are not guaranteed, however, the chances to spot all of the big five on the safaris are very good. Once more, dinner after the game drive is pre-paid for on a set rate of 250 ZAR per person per night to choose drinks and meals from the rest camp restaurant menu. Exchange stories of Africa and listen to the sounds of the immense wilderness around you.

Day 7: End of tour
