Departing from the airport or nearby hotel in Johannesburg, this safari offers you 2 nights of comfortable accommodation at one of the most popular camps in the Kruger National Park, overlooking the Sabie River where elephants, hippos, crocodiles, buffalo and other animals are often seen. Accommodation is in clean, comfortable bungalows with 2 or 3 beds. Each unit has air-conditioning, ceiling fan, private bathroom, mosquito screens, fridge and veranda. There are also other accommodation options for larger families. Two meals per day are included. At least two morning game drives and two afternoon game drives are included, on an safari vehicle, with a highly experienced safari guide. Our guides are legendary and this is without doubt our biggest selling point - a good guide makes a huge difference to your safari experience. The game drive times and duration are flexible, with game viewing being more important than keeping to a tour schedule.
Departing from Johannesburg Airport or surrounding hotels at around 08h30 a.m. we drive along a scenic route to the entrance of the Kruger National Park. Game viewing begins as soon as we enter the gates, and we look for giraffe, zebra and various antelope species on our way to the camp, where we arrive by sunset. Dinner will be prepared by your guide and may take the form of a traditional South African braai (barbecue), weather permitting. Alternatively, we may use the camp restaurant. Fall asleep to the alien sounds of the wild.
We rise before the sun and embark on a morning game drive in the Kruger National Park in search of the big 5 - lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino. These are known to be the 5 most dangerous animals to hunt, but we get to view them up close from the safety of our safari vehicle. While looking for wildlife we visit waterholes, lookout points and beautiful picnic spots, stopping at regular intervals so you can stretch your legs and enjoy some refreshments. On some safaris, we visit the waterhole where the famous Battle at Kruger video was filmed
After breakfast at a picnic site in the bush, we return to the camp around lunchtime, where you can spend the hot midday hours relaxing at the pool, browsing through the curio shop or watching animals from the deck. In the afternoon we head out on another game drive and return to the camp at sunset for dinner. As an optional extra, you can embark on a sunset/night drive on an open safari vehicle equipped with spotlights, conducted by one of the Kruger Park's rangers. Dinner will be expertly prepared by your guide, weather permitting, and enjoyed around the campfire under the stars. Or we may eat at the camp restaurant.
This morning we pack up early and head out on a final early morning game drive in search of game that may have eluded us thus far. Breakfast is served at a picnic site along the way, and we exit the Kruger Park around mid morning to begin our journey back to Johannesburg or Ingogo. Transfers to and from Johannesburg are normally conducted in a luxury air-conditioned microbus. We arrive back in Johannesburg or at Ingogo by about 17h00 p.m.
