Our guests will be collected from various lodges and hotels within a 5 km radius of the OR Tambo International Airport, between 6:30 am and 6:45 am, and then from the OR Tambo International Airport shuttle and bus Terminal between 6:45 and 7:00 am, we depart at 7:15 am.

Please confirm your pickup details the day before the tour by sending an email to online@kurtsafari.com. Please note these are shared departures. We will travel directly to the lodge in Hazyview, arriving between 11:30 am and 12:00 pm.

Guests will have time to relax, unpack and enjoy a light lunch and after they have settled in, there will be enough time to enjoy a swim or walk around the beautiful lodge. There are various walking trails that you can explore.

We depart from the lodge at around 15:45 pm for a Sunset/ Night Safari. In the afternoon, the safari is illuminated by the golden hour, a time of day when the light is just perfect.

In winter, one gets to experience longer night drives than in summer when the sun sets later, however, every safari is special and different. Later in the afternoon, when the temperatures drop, wildlife starts moving around and your guide will try their best to help you see the best possible sightings, before returning to the lodge around 20:00 pm for a hearty dinner and a good night’s rest, preparing you for the following day’s full day safari in the Kruger National Park.

 

Day 2: Full Day Open Vehicle Safari in the Kruger National Park

(Breakfast & Dinner Included; Lunch on your own account)

All safaris start before sunrise. This is the best time of the day to travel into the park as the heat of the day has not yet driven the wildlife to find shade. After a short drive, we enter the park gates and your guide will have an idea of the best areas to find the best wildlife, including the Big 5 and plains game. This is also the finest time of the day to see predators.

The lodge will arrange breakfast packs and your guide will stop after about 3 hours for a breakfast and bathroom break. This is also a chance to get a coffee. We will then continue with your safari. The Kruger Park offers a variety of eco zones and each one has a different diversity of wildlife. We visit rivers and watering holes as well as plains and Bushveld regions, all areas of the park known for some of the best wildlife viewing.

We then stopped for lunch at a Rest Camp. This meal will be on your own account. There will also be time to do some curio shopping or to enjoy a cold beer! The guide will then continue with the safari heading towards the lodge. We will arrive between 15:30 and 16:00 pm, with enough time to relax, swim and have a great dinner.
 

DAY 3: Full Day Panorama Tour

(Breakfast and Dinner Included; Lunch on your own account)

Today we visit Gods Window, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, Blyde River Canyon (the world’s 3rd largest canyon), Lisbon Waterfall, the 3 Rondavels and the town of Graskop.

We start with a delicious hot breakfast at the lodge, served at 7:30 am, and your guide will then meet you at 8 am in a closed, air-conditioned vehicle. The Panorama Route starts after a 45 min drive from Hazyview, and we climb almost 1000 meters up into the Northern Drakensburg Mountain range. Temperatures will vary a lot from Hazyview, so bring a jacket and comfortable walking shoes, as we will spend a lot of the day on foot.

We visit God’s Window, with its spectacular lookout point that appears as a window from the escarpment. Below is a 1 000 m drop and one you can see as far as the Kruger and beyond on a clear day. Your comfortable walking shoes will be needed at this point, as the various lookout points have paths and trails that you will need to walk in order to get to the viewing sights. To get to the top it takes the average person around 15 to 20 minutes, but it is worth the walk through a natural rainforest environment.

Bourke’s Luck Potholes is a stunning natural rock formation, created by water erosion over hundreds of years. The Bourke’s Luck Potholes have round carvings and holes of different sizes, formed in the Treur River and Blyde River confluence, in the red sandstone. Your guide will brief you on all the history of the region and guests can use the small footbridges and walk over the chasms, looking down at the water flowing through the cracks and holes below. Several small but beautiful waterfalls litter the area. We spend about 1 hour here and in total, you can expect to walk a refreshing 1km.

The Blyde River Canyon is the 3rd largest canyon in the world. It is over 40km long and is as deep as 1 200m at certain points. The canyon contains a vast amount of plant life, with rivers and dams making up the floor of the canyon. At a certain lookout point above the canyon, guests get to see another beauty of the Panorama Tour, the 3 Rondavels. The Rondavels get their name from their appearance, which is similar to a traditional hut commonly built in Africa called a Rondavel. These 3 outcrops stand prominently from the landscape.

The tour will also visit the Lisbon Waterfalls, a beautiful waterfall that has a strong flow of water all throughout the year. We will stop in the town of Graskop, famous for its great Pancakes, where will have lunch and explore the small shops. Guests will have time to enjoy a stroll through the town.

We arrive back at the lodge between 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm after a great day out. Here guests can enjoy a drink, a swim and have dinner, before getting ready for an early start to an exciting morning safari in Kruger.

DAY 4: Morning Safari and Afternoon of Leisure.

(Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner Included.)

We always depart for our morning safaris before sunrise as this is the best time of day for viewing wildlife such as predators, who are mostly active during the early hours of the day. Your guide will focus on finding animals and exploring regions not yet seen or covered. Since the Kruger National Park has 148 mammal species and over 500 bird species so there is always something new to see. No safari is ever the same.

The Kruger has a huge network of roads to choose from and our guides will safari in different areas of the park in the different seasons, giving clients the maximum opportunity to see more sightings and enjoy the beautiful wilderness and vegetation.

We will return to the lodge at around 11 am and today we have an afternoon of leisure. You can swim, enjoy a walk around the lodges, try our local beers or just enjoy our great African weather. A light lunch and tasty dinner will be served at the lodge.


DAY 5: Morning safari and Transfer back to Johannesburg

(Breakfast Included, Lunch on own account)

Today we have the last safari of your trip and we will spend it slowly, just enjoying the bush and keeping a lookout for that elusive leopard. Our guides have years of knowledge and experience and they will go out of their way to ensure your safari is memorable, especially on this last day, as we try to see as much as we can before you leave.

After a quick breakfast and coffee stop, we will continue with the safari, returning to the lodge at around 12 pm. Here you can say goodbye to your guide and freshen up before the journey back to Johannesburg. Clients are collected by the shuttle at around 12:30 pm, and you will return to Johannesburg’s OR Tambo shuttle terminal or a lodge within a 5 km radius of the airport, arriving between 17:00 pm and 18:00 pm

NB: Clients who are flying out of OR Tambo International Airport on the last day of the safari should please not book their flight any earlier than 20:00 pm for Domestic Flights and 21:00 pm for International Flights.
