Itinerary
Day 01
Kruger National Park

Johannesburg - Kruger National Park

Hotel: Skukuza Camp - Budget hut with twin beds, bedding, aircon and a small fridge / Shukuza Camp - Dome tent with the necessities - beds, mattresses, duvets, pillows, towels, amenities and an electrical power point or similar

We normally leave Johannesburg between 06:00am and 08:00am to allow for various collection points. The shuttle/transfer is an additional cost.

As for the route…think a drive through the scenic wide open spaces of the Highveld, down the escarpment and through the lovely Lowveld area! To appease those rumbling tummies, we also stop for lunch en-route (own expense) and reach the respective camps in the afternoon.

After settling into your accommodations, you’ll get to jump straight into your exciting safari experience with our first game drive - a SANParks sunset drive! Get ready to see the animals that are more active at night in all their glory. Even better…the Park’s rangers are allowed to return after the normal gate closing times.

With this, it’s important to remember that these drives take place in one of the Kruger Park’s vehicles, so this is not a private game drive and there may be other guests on this drive. Also, children under 6 years of age are not permitted on open vehicle drives.

After the drive, it’s onto an appetizing dinner. Enjoy a three-course meal, served al fresco at our camp. Wine is served with dinner but you are welcome to bring along additional or alternative drinks which can be purchased at the shop.

Tips:
Dinner is included.

Day 02
Kruger National Park

Kruger National Park

Hotel: Skukuza Camp - Budget hut with twin beds, bedding, aircon and a small fridge / Shukuza Camp - Dome tent with the necessities - beds, mattresses, duvets, pillows, towels, amenities and an electrical power point or similar

The bushveld always enjoys an early start and so do you. After all, safaris are all about getting up early, and getting out there and seeing animals!

After your wake-up call (this time varies depending on the seasons and park gate opening times), you’ll get to warm up with a cup of tea or coffee, and snacks. Then, it’s time for the morning safari (it takes approximately 3-4 hours).

Lucky for you, your guide will have an intimate knowledge of the park … this contributes a great deal towards memorable sightings! But you know what they say - the more time you spend on a safari, the better your chances of seeing the animals!

On your return to camp, brunch will be ready. After this, you’ll have some free time, which you could use to explore the camp, catch up on the sleep you missed in the morning, or peruse the park shop for souvenirs for the family, yummy food items, and even stuff like international adapters.

We then set off on the afternoon game drive. Remember, all our game drives are conducted in specially-adapted, 4x4 open game drive vehicles to allow you the best possible vantage point. In the evening, we share safari stories under the stars, after dinner served at the camp.

Panoramic Route
The Panorama Route (optional for all our Kruger safaris that are 3 days or longer) As if our itinerary isn’t awesome enough, we also offer an optional excursion to visit select attractions along the Panorama Route.

You’ll get to see renowned attractions like Blyde River Canyon, Three Rondavels, Lisbon Falls and God’s Window. We stop in one of the small towns en-route for lunch (own expense), too. This excursion is available free of charge, and replaces your game drives for that day. It will be coordinated by our staff while you are on safari with us.

Note that this excursion is not available on the first or last day of your safari due to time constraints.

Tips:
Breakfast and dinner are included.

Day 03
Kruger National Park

Kruger National Park - Johannesburg

As the golden sun rises over our final day in the Kruger National Park, we have one last chance to find the animals that have eluded us thus far.

Then, after breakfast, we return to Johannesburg. The drive back takes at least 6 hours and guests are advised to sleep over in Johannesburg on this night.

Tips:
Breakfast is included.

  • On our safaris, we make use of facilities and accommodation situated inside the Kruger National Park and do not stay outside the Kruger, unless forced to do so because of availability.
  • We have a permanent camp in Skukuza, which is also where our open game drive vehicles are based. Safaris with accommodation in multiple rest camps are available on request.
  • 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 mini bus 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 6 years of age are not allowed on SANParks open game drive vehicles.
  • Although we welcome children on our safaris, we reserve the right not to allow younger children on our 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 our 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. We do 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.
  • Guests flying out of OR Tambo Airport on the last day are reminded to not book any flights earlier than 7:00pm (domestic) or 8:00pm (international) in order to give us enough time to get you to the airport. We recommend that you rather stay over in Johannesburg if possible. Since we cannot guarantee our arrival time in Johannesburg on the last day we will not be held responsible for reimbursements of flight tickets, should we arrive later than expected. Guests flying out of Nelspruit on the last day may, depending on their flight details, not have enough time to see the Panorama Route. Private transfers for guests with early flights can be arranged in advance at an extra charge.
