Day 1: Johannesburg

Transportation to Balule Nature Reserve is operated by a qualified driver who will pick you up in Johannesburg at 06:00 in the morning of your departure. All transfers are done in a luxury air-conditioned vehicle. There are numerous stops along the way for comfort breaks and photo moments.

Arriving at Ezulwini River Lodge or similar, you will be greeted by the friendly lodge staff and have time to settle in and rest before embarking on the afternoon game drive. Balule Nature Reserve has a high concentration of wildlife and is known for the predators, especially the cats.

Although the Balule is a private reserve and is a more exclusive safari experience, it forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park with its borders being mainly unfenced with the national park. Late afternoon and into the evenings is a great time to spot wildlife, after which you will make your way to the lodge for supper and an opportunity to have a relaxed evening.

Day 2: Kruger National Park

On day two, you will be greeted with a cup of coffee before heading off for the morning game drive in a 4x4 safari vehicle, hopefully with an opportunity to spot the big five waking and roaming in your path. There is an alternative to go on a morning bush walk rather than the drive if you prefer so.

Upon return from your safari, you will be served a leisurely breakfast and have the remainder of the morning at the lodge to catch up on sleep or resting at the pool. Lunch will be served and there will be some more time to unwind before returning for an afternoon/sunset safari drive with your guide. Sunset will be spent in the bush, after which you will be returned to the lodge for supper and have the evening at your leisure.

Day 3: Johannesburg

Early morning rise on day three and head out for your morning game drive to spot the animals that have been eluding you on your safari experience. Return to the lodge for breakfast and check out, where your driver will be waiting to transfer you back to Johannesburg via Nelspruit.
