Full description

Get back to nature in Kruger National Park and look for wild animals by open safari vehicle by day and at night.

Day 1:

Depart Johannesburg and drive by air-conditioned microbus through the Elands Valley to Nelspruit. Marvel at the citrus farms along the way. Then, enter Kruger National Park in time for lunch.

Spend the afternoon on a game drive looking for elephants, giraffes, and antelopes in their natural environment. Rest at camp and relax in your en-suite chalet. Enjoy drinks before dinner in the private restaurant.

Day 2:

Wake at dawn to listen to the birds before going in search of the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo). Enjoy a hearty breakfast, then continue to a waterhole to see hippos, crocodiles, and birds before returning to your camp for a nap or afternoon swim.

Later, leave the lodge to look for wildlife until late in the afternoon. Stop at one of the restaurants inside the park to have some lunch, then continue tracking wildlife. In the evening, head back to the lodge to relax and start looking at the photos you've taken so far on the trip.

Day 3:

Depart on an early morning game drive looking for elusive species lurking in the bush. Get some time to shop before your homeward journey. Enjoy amazing views of the farmlands of Schoemans Kloof and stop for lunch in Highveld.

Arrive back at the airport for your onward flight or continue to your hotel.

Collection takes place on the 1st day between 7-7.30 am. Then you drive about 5 hours until you arrive at the respective hotel and check in. Gilbert was a very good driver. Then it goes on the 1st afternoon safari. We had Given as our guide, he was awesome. Lots of knowledge. On the 2nd and 3rd day we start at 5.30 am. Enjoy no hearty breakfast, breakfast box! Furnished very differently depending on the hotel. For me: sandwich with grated cheese, muesli bar, muesli with yoghurt, apple, juice that's it. The others also had egg, banana, croissants, roasted nuts. On the 3rd day the safari ends at 12 noon. The driver is already waiting, in my case Ben. Very good driver. Meals, apart from breakfast, are not included in the price. Revise the itinerary! If the company says you'll be at the airport by 4 p.m., the driver can only do it if you're alone in the car and he can speed. 5h + are realistic. Great trip, possibly chaotically organized for Europeans. Lodge: Umbhaba Hazyview

Very happy with our safari in Kruger. We had Nic who drove us from Johannesburg to the lodge and it was beyond great. He’s a culture guide and had answer for all our questions about the country, the economy, politics, sports. It was a very good 12 hours (6 hours each) up and down to Johannesburg. We stayed at Umbhaba Eco lodge, and it was a very nice accommodation. The staff were flexible with our schedule and for the early mornings we hade really good breakfast boxes. In the park we had Gives as our nature guide. He’s the guy in Kruger we would say! He really walks the talk and put very much effort in giving the best safari experience. We definitely recommend this safari package to everyone!
