Accommodation

During this safari, you will stay for 2 nights in chalets at a main camp inside Kruger National Park and 1 night at a private safari lodge (such as 4-star Mohlabetsi Safari Lodge, Shiduli Private Game Lodge, or Chisomo Safari Camp) with game drives in 4 x 4 open vehicle and possibly a short bush walk.

There are 12 main rest camps situated in different areas of Kruger National Park which enables your freedom of movement to explore the reserve. The original term "rest camp" is misleading to most overseas tourists and implies a rather basic or temporary facility. In fact, these rest camps are permanent structures similar to small resorts providing comfortable African style chalets, licensed restaurants, shops, and other features.

Wildlife Safaris chooses overnight camps according to availability and their knowledge of conditions. There are different types of accommodation including standard chalets, luxury riverside chalets, family cottages, furnished safari tents, or economy huts. National Parks usually refer to these African chalets as bungalows.

Each of the main rest camps is fenced off to prevent dangerous animals entering and you must remain within the camp from dusk till dawn. There is a restaurant, shop, and a swimming pool.

Chalets are serviced daily, air-conditioned, equipped with bedding, towels and have a private shower, toilet, and basin. You are supplied with a front door key and insect screens are fitted to the windows. Most chalets have a small patio with a table and chairs plus a refrigerator. For a family guest, Wildlife Safaris will request family units where possible and these may include 3 or 4 bedded rooms.

Program

All the tours are suitable for families although Wildlife Safaris must consider other passengers on the tour bus and they recommend that parents who have children under 6 years should choose a private tour with exclusive use of the vehicle. Please remember to bring a torch for night time and do not allow children to walk alone.

Children of all ages are permitted on all game drives conducted in a closed microbus. During the daytime, older children are allowed on the open safari vehicle accompanied by their parents. However, for safety reasons, children under 6 years are not allowed on an open safari vehicle after dark in Kruger Park. Please discuss options with Wildlife Safaris so that younger members of the family together with mothers are not excluded from the fun and excitement of a safari. Refreshment / comfort stops will be planned every 2-3 hours during transfers and game drives. Ask your guide each day for the program.

There will be pick-up between 07:00 and 08:00 at hotels or guest houses. You can ask Wildlife Safaris for recommended hotels on the collection route. Try to avoid Joburg City Centre and Pretoria which often cause delay to the guides. Departures daily on request from Johannesburg or Pretoria.

Location

This safari will take place in Kruger National Park, South Africa. Kruger National Park which attracts over one million visitors a year, is one of the oldest and largest national parks in Africa. The original Sabie Game Reserve was proclaimed by President Paul Kruger in 1898 and later extended to its present size of approximately 19,000 square kilometers or 8,000 square miles.

It extends from the Limpopo river in the north to the Crocodile river in the south, a distance of nearly 380 kilometers. To the east, it borders with Mozambique and on the west it joins many of our private game reserves. The countryside throughout the park varies and it has typical bushveld in the southern regions which gives way to grasslands towards the central and northern areas. There are 6 major rivers flowing throughout the year in addition to dams and water holes.

Kruger is one of the great natural sanctuaries of the World and is home to an impressive number of species including 147 mammals, 507 birds, 114 reptiles, 34 amphibians, 49 fishes, and 336 trees. Since most of the animals are used to the presence of motor vehicles, it is usually ideal for photos and videos.
