The lodge is about 15 to 20 minutes’ drive from the Phabeni Kruger Gate. After your safari game drive, you will return to the lodge where you can unwind, have drinks, relax, followed by dinner and an overnight stay.

This morning you will enjoy coffee/tea and rusks before departing on full day of game viewing in the Kruger National Park (Skukuza area). A packed breakfast is included. Game drives will be in small groups in specially modified open-sided land cruisers.

The Skukuza area is rich in wildlife and the elevated height of the 4×4 open-sided vehicle makes for excellent viewing and photographic opportunities.

Location

This safari will take you to Hazyview, Kruger National Park, South Africa. The Kruger National Park is located in the low veld in the North Eastern region of South Africa and spans across two provinces, the Mpumalanga and Limpopo Provinces. It is not only the largest national game reserve in South Africa, it is also the most prestigious and impressive. This world-renowned park occupies and area of around 2 million hectares (20.000 square kilometres) and is home to a large variety of fauna and flora.

The Kruger Park boasts the richest assortment of life forms in Southern Africa and as such offers one of the best safari and game viewing experiences possible. The park is about 360 kilometers long (from North to South) and about 65 kilometers wide (from East to West) and about the same size as Wales. The Kruger was formerly proclaimed a national park in 1926 and today it forms part of the Great Limpopo Frontier Park. This massive peace park links the Kruger with the the Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe and with the Limpopo National Park in Mozambique.

Zimbabwe lies to the North and Mozambique to the East of the Kruger Park. The Kruger Park is famous for its abundant wildlife and it is also a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques. Several rivers flow through the Kruger in an easterly direction, including the Sabie, Olifants, Crocodile, Letaba, Luvuvhu, and Limpopo Rivers. It is about 4.5 hours drive from Johannesburg to the southern part of the Kruger.
