Tour Description

3 Day Best Kruger Safari

What to expect

The Kruger National Park is one of the worlds’ leading nature reserves and on a 3-day safari we spend a lot of time exploring the Park. Most operators only do 3-hour morning and afternoon drives, but the KNP is vast and Kurt Safari was one of the first operators to introduce full-day safaris on our 3-day safari tours.

This gives clients a chance to see a larger part of the Kruger and different areas, compared to short 3-hour safaris which must remain close to the camps, resulting in driving the same areas on every safari. Spending a full day in the KNP can sound tiring, but the guides stop regularly at rest camps and lookout points. The extended time increases the chances of seeing more wildlife as we traverse different grasslands and ecological zones.

80% of our clients on 3-day safaris encounter all the Big 5.

Kurt safari makes use of accommodation just outside the KNP in Hazyview, privately owned with quality service; breakfast & dinners included.

Important Note

We prefer the lodges and hotels outside of the Kruger Park as there is a bigger variety of accommodation and it’s only a 10-minute drive to the nearest entry gate. All the accommodation venues are privately owned.
We cannot take children under 8 on shared safaris but please request a quote on private safaris.
Clients flying out of OR TAMBO on last day to please not book flights earlier than 20:00 pm for domestic flights and 21:00 pm for international flights as one cannot always guarantee on-time arrival at OR Tambo International airport.
Clients should arrive the day before their tour starts to avoid missing the shuttle to KNP, as this vehicle is not private and cannot be delayed.


Day 1: Transfer & Afternoon safari. (Dinner included)

Guests will be fetched at OR Tambo bus terminal and any lodge within 5km at around 6:00 – 6:30. All guests will be notified about fetching times a day before. Guests will travel directly to Mpumalanga and the overnight lodge and arrive at around 11:00-12:00. Guests will have time to unpack, relax and enjoy a light lunch, before departing on an afternoon safari at 14:30 pm. The guide will focus on plains, so animals like the Zebra, Giraffe, antelope etc., can be more common. The safari will last until 15:30 pm, at which the guide will take the guests back to the lodge to enjoy a delicious dinner. 

Day 2: Full Day open vehicle safari in the Kruger National Park (Breakfast & Dinner included)

The safari will start before sunrise, at which the guide will take guests into the Park for a fun and exciting day. The guide will focus on areas that are known to hold the different members of the Big 5. Plenty of stops will be made at rivers and watering holes as well as plains and forested areas to include a large variety of animals into the tour. Breakfast will be had at a local picnic spot before continuing. At lunch time the guide will stop at the nearest rest camp, where lunch will be on own account. The guide will then continue on with the tour afterwards until 15:30pm, at which guests will be returned to the lodge for another delicious dinner. 

Day 3: Morning safari and transfer back to Johannesburg (Breakfast included)

The final day of the tour will start before sunrise, to catch some of the nocturnal animals as well as having enough time for a safari. The guide will focus on places fo animals not yet seen, in an attempt to complete the Big 5, if not achieved the previous day. Guests will enjoy their pre packed breakfasts at a local picnic area before the morning safari ends. Guests will be returned at the lodge at around 11:30, giving them time to collect their luggage and sign out. Guests will be taken to OR Tambo and the surrounding lodges via air conditioned buses, with arrival around 17:30pm – 18:00pm.
NB: Clients flying out of OR Tambo on the last day should please not book their flights any earlier than 19:00 pm (domestic) and 20:00 pm (international).




The Kruger National Park is a truly great place to visit and you must also stay at a great area, like the Umbhaba Eco Lodge. Umbhaba Eco Lodge is truly unique in its location as it is located close to 2 different Park Entrances, allowing you to enter and exit the Park and allows you to plan your whole tour easily. Umbhaba has a beautiful sunset that will spoil you while relaxing in the afternoon.
