The Kruger National Park is one of the worlds’ leading nature reserves and on a 4-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 4-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.
Departure & Return Location
Please note: We collect clients from the surrounding lodges (within a 5km radius) between 6 – 6:30 AM, then we collect clients from the OR Tambo International Airport shuttle/bus terminal (Johannesburg) between 6:45 – 7:30 AM. Please call our office the day before to confirm pickup time.
NB: Clients staying in Sandton can take the Gautrain or Uber to the airport.

What To Bring
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.
Guests will travel the beautiful route from OR Tambo, and the surrounding lodges, Mpumalanga and the over night accommodation outside Hazyview. Pickup times at OR Tambo Bust terminal will be from 6:00 to 6:30 am. Guests will arrive at Umbhaba Eco Lodge at 11:30- 12:00am, where they will have enough time to sign in and enjoy a delicious lunch. The first safari will depart from the lodge at 14:30pm for an amazing afternoon experience.
NB: Please see a selection of accommodation lodges and hotels near the Skukuza Airport or OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg; most lodges offer free transfers to the bus shuttle terminal.
During the following two days, guests will depart from the lodge before sunrise. The guide will focus on taking guests to different locations throughout the two days so they can explore more of the park and see more fauna and flora. Exploring more of the park also increases the chance of encountering the Big 5. Guests will enjoy their pre packed breakfasts at picnic spots while lunch will be had at a rest camp at own account. 85% of guests encounter the Big 5 on these safaris. The safari will end at around 15:30 – 16:00 pm, where the guests are taken back to the lodge to enjoy some relaxation and enjoy a delicious dinner.
The last morning safari will start before sunrise, with guests departing for the Kruger National Park. Guides will focus on finding the animals that have been elusive the last few days and will also take guests to new areas. Breakfast will be enjoyed at a picnic area before returning to the lodge at 11:30am. Guests can then collect their luggage and sign out of their rooms before being transported to OR Tambo and the relevant lodges via air conditioned buses. Guests will arrive between 17:30 and 18:00 pm
There you will depart to your various lodges and hotels after a great safari experience.
NB: Clients flying out of OR TAMBO on last day to please not book flights earlier than 19:00 PM for domestic flights and 20:00 PM for international flights as we cannot guarantee on-time arrival at OR Tambo International airport.
