Kruger Park Safari

 

We depart from the city of Gold and head off on an adventure of a lifetime. A truly unique experience unfolds as we enter the picturesque Mpumalanga province as we head to the Kruger National Park. The next days are filled with the exploration of the African bushveld in search of the famed 'Big 5' and more. Our last day sees us explore the breathtaking viewpoints at God's Window, the Pinnacle and the Mac-Mac falls. This trip offers spectacular wildlife viewing experiences not to be missed.

Kruger Park Escape Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Blyde River Canyon Lodge Dinner

We depart Johannesburg/Pretoria and head off out of the city stopping en-route for a quick breakfast (not included). We travel either via Nelspruit (if there are further clients to pick up) or alternatively through Dullstroom and Lydenburg to Graskop, where we take a break for lunch (own cost). After lunch our journey takes us via the northern Drakensberg Mountains along the Panorama Route – famous for its majestic views of the surrounding forests and landscapes. On the Panorama Route, we'll stop off at God's Window, Bourke's Luck Potholes and the third largest canyon in the world - the Blyde River Canyon. Here we view the 'Three Rondawels', a series of mountain outcrops named for the traditional huts of the indigenous people in this region.


Day 2: Kruger National Park Lodge Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

An early rise greets us this morning as we depart our camp at first light to the Orpen Gate - the most central gate to Kruger National Park. At the entrance gate, we transfer to open sided 4x4 vehicles and commence our game drive. Our game drive takes us to some of the best game drive routes within Kruger, giving us the opportunity to view the varied landscapes, ecosystems and abundant wildlife. The Kruger National park is the same size as Israel, Wales or the Netherlands and contains different vegetation types that attract different animals to different areas of the park. Kruger is home to 147 mammal (including the Big 5), 114 reptile & 502 bird species, some of which we will hope to see while on our drive. The entire day is spent game viewing, bird watching and stopping off at the various waterholes en route. Breakfast and lunch will be prepared by your guide and enjoyed at one of the many picnic sites inside Kruger national park. At sunset on day 2 we meet up with our night drive vehicle and continue on our night game drive to explore the nocturnal animals and birdlife.


Day 3: Kruger National Park Lodge Breakfast, Lunch

See day 2 for Itinerary


Day 4: Johannesburg   Breakfast

Our last morning offers the opportunity to partake in a guided walk within the park (optional). For those not partaking in this option, there will be a short game drive. Thereafter we depart for a late breakfast before we start heading back to Johannesburg/Pretoria.

Please note that arrival time to Johannesburg/Pretoria is dependent on traffic and other factors and as such we do not advise booking any outbound flight on this day.
