Be amazed by the Big Five as well as hippo, hyena, kudu, giraffe, zebra and so much more on several open vehicle game drives and a SANParks sunset drive (which gives you the opportunity to see nocturnal animals) on this Kruger classic safaris. While there are never any guarantees, the more time you spend on this safari, the better! You also have the option of visiting Bourke's Luck Potholes, Three Rondavels in the Blyde River Canyon and God’s Window on the Panorama Route, which provides some of the most magnificent scenery in the country. Delicious breakfasts and dinners give you ample time to get to know your fellow travelers and exchange stories while sitting around the campfire and listening to the sounds of the bush around you.
This Kruger Classic Safari accommodation is in en-suite chalets with beds, linen, towels, and soap. The chalets have a small fridge, air conditioning and mosquito proofing on the doors and windows.
The group leaves on your Kruger Park safari from Johannesburg in the early morning to allow for various collection points. The route to your Kruger safari takes you through the Highveld with its wide-open spaces, down the escarpment and through the scenic Lowveld area. En-route to the Kruger National Park, you stop for lunch (own expense).
You will go out on your first Kruger safari (a SANParks Sunset Drive) after settling into your accommodation. A sunset drive affords you the opportunity to see nocturnal Kruger wildlife. Kruger Park’s rangers are allowed to return after the normal gate closing times. Also, this is not a private Kruger safari so other guests may be joining you on this drive.
A three-course dinner will be served al fresco at the camp in the evening (weather permitting).
Kruger Park safaris are all about early mornings, and getting out there and seeing the wildlife! The time you go on your Kruger safari varies according to the seasons and camp gate opening times. You have tea or coffee with snacks before departing on the game drive, which will take approximately three to four hours. Your guide has an intimate knowledge of Kruger Park, which contributes a great deal towards brilliant sightings!
Upon returning to camp, brunch will be ready. You’ll then have time to enjoy a swim, visit Kruger Park’s shop, which includes African curios, general food items, and drinks, take a walk around the camp, or simply take advantage of the Kruger National Park accommodation and relax in your chalet. Be sure to bring your binoculars, Kruger Park is a bird watcher’s paradise!
After your leisure time, you set off on the afternoon Kruger wildlife safari. The team conducts this Kruger safari in specially adapted 4×4 open game drive vehicles to allow you the best possible vantage point. The group shares African safari stories under the stars after a scrumptious dinner served at the camp.
The final day of your Kruger Park safari will be your last chance to see the Big Five animals that have eluded you thus far. After breakfast, you return to Johannesburg. The drive back takes at least six hours and guests are advised to sleep over in Johannesburg on this night.
Transfers from and to the airport, as well as to the Kruger National Park, is in a 12-seater bus and game drives take place in open safari vehicles to offer the best possible game viewing experience. Vehicles provide guests with the highest possible levels of safety and comfort.
It is important to note that this is not a private safari and more than likely there will be other guests joining you on the game drive vehicles, air-conditioned minibus transfer vehicles as well as in the dining facility.
Please note that sunset game drive times are subject to change and availability on the day. These drives are conducted by SANParks, by one of their rangers and in one of their vehicles. There will most likely be other guests on this drive. Children under 12 years of age are not allowed to join this safari.
Although Outlook Safaris welcomes children on this safari, they reserve the right not to allow younger children on normal game drives. This will be entirely up to the guide’s discretion and will be in order to ensure a pleasurable game drive for all the guests (including the parents). Should this be the case, a bush bumble (kiddies game drive) will be conducted after the normal game drive, especially for the kids. Outlook Safaris does not offer babysitting and as such one of the parents will have to stay behind to watch the children. Private game drives for families can be arranged at an extra charge.
The diversity of the Kruger National Park is truly astounding, a veritable nature lover and photography enthusiast’s paradise. All wild and free-roaming animals, that have always occurred here naturally, integrating perfectly into their respective ecosystems.
If, as a visitor to the Kruger National Park, you want to see a wide range and diversity of wild animals, there is no better national park to visit on the entire African continent. Yes, Kruger Park is commercial and yes, there are a lot of people driving around and, at some sightings especially the Big 5, it can become overcrowded. But the diversity of species found in Kruger Park is fantastic. Visitors are seldom disappointed. Kruger Wildlife Safaris has, on many occasions during the course of a single morning game drive on one of their safaris, seen all of the Big Five, and it did not end there. You’d be hard-pressed to have as an exceptional experience in other National Parks in Africa.
The Big Five consists of lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo, and elephant. Originally a hunting term used to describe Africa’s 5 most dangerous animals to hunt on foot in the bush, the photographic safari industry has “hijacked” the phrase and it’s now used worldwide as a marketing tool to attract tourists to Africa’s National Parks in the hopes of spotting these animals.
And yes, the Big 5 are fantastic to see, but remember, Kruger Park offers so much more than just the Big 5. Antelope, giraffe, hippopotamus, crocodiles, beautiful birds such as ground hornbills, lilac-breasted rollers and fork-tailed drongos and stunning savannah and bush landscapes all make the Kruger National Park a must-see when visiting South Africa.
A walk in the Kruger Park affords you the opportunity to experience the bush from a totally different perspective. You really do get up close and personal with Africa's wild animals, insects, trees and birds. Qualified trail guides take you on a three-hour walk where there is a chance you could come across Africa's Big 5 on foot.
Please be advised however, the focus is not on Big Five encounters, but rather smaller and often very interesting aspects of the bush that only a walk can offer. This activity is available at an additional fee of 570 ZAR per person and needs to be pre-booked with your consultant when you confirm your Kruger safari tour with Outlook Safaris. This activity is dependent on availability.
