You will arrive in Hazyview at 11:30am – 12:00 pm where you will be met by your safari guide who will transfer you to Umbhaba Eco Lodge or Sanbonani Resort (subject to availability). Here we will stay for the next 2 nights; this is a 4-star lodge and just a 15 min drive from Phabeni or Numbi gate of the Kruger National Park.
There will be sufficient time to check-in and settle before you are collected at 14:30 pm for your first safari; this will be a relaxed late-afternoon / sunset safari. The cats are most active in the early mornings, so we will mainly focus on the planes game like Zebra and giraffe.
We depart the park at gate closing times this just before sunset and return to the lodge or accommodation after a long day. You will then enjoy dinner, some leisure time and an early night in bed, as you will need to rise early the next morning.
Our safari starts very early, before sunrise, to the Kruger National Park in specially fitted open vehicles. We enter the park at one of the best wildlife areas; here you will spend the day on a safari with your ranger and we will visit various water holes, lookout points & rivers.
We have our breakfast, which was pre-packed by the lodge, at a local rest camp/picnic venue and then continue our safari looking for the mighty Big 5, not missing out on over 100 mammal & 500 bird species – your ranger will ensure the very best experience. Your guide will stop at a local rest camp for lunch where there is a great menu, then we continue with our safari.
We return to the lodge late afternoon (around 4 pm) after a great day on safari. You can then relax and even jump into the swimming pool before we have dinner at the lodge. But be sure to get to bed early, as you will have to get up early as well for the next day’s early morning safari and transfer back home.
We depart early again from the lodge on your last safari, taking your luggage with us this morning and entering the park as the sun rises. We will have another breakfast with the packs supplied by the lodge and continue the safari until 12:00 am. Then we leave the park and make our way to Umbhaba Eco Lodge in Hazyview where you will meet up with the Ashton’s shuttle at 12:00 pm and make your way back towards the shuttle terminal at OR Tambo. There you will depart to your various lodges and hotels after a great safari experience.
