Experience 5 days of African bliss, touring through the Kruger National Park and meandering along the picturesque Panorama Route. This tour encompasses two full day safaris, one afternoons safari, one morning safari and one full tour of the Panorama Route. 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.

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

We set off on our safari through Kruger National Park before sunrise in an open safari vehicle. Entering the park at one of the best areas for wildlife sightings, we spend the day with the ranger visiting different water holes, rivers and lookout points.
We stop at one of the many rest camps to enjoy a pre-packed breakfast and continue our journey through the park only returning back at the lodge by 16:00 PM.
After having our breakfast at the lodge, we depart on our journey through the picturesque Panorama Route. The home to many natural wonders including the world third largest canyon – Blyde River Canyon, the Three Rondawels, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and God’s Window. We stop off in Graskop to do some souvenir shopping and lunch before heading back to the lodge for a relaxing dinner.
Today we leave before sunrise, Hazyview is located near to 2 entry gates to Kruger; this allows you the chance to view other areas of the Kruger Park and the guide will concentrate on discovering different wildlife that might have not been seen on the previous safaris.

We arrive at the lodge (between 15:30PM & 16:00PM) for a swim and leisure time.
We leave early for our last safari with our breakfast packs in hand. We will meander through the bush of the park until 12:00 from where we will return back to the lodge. We will leave for the OR Tambo International Airport or surrounding lodges arriving before 17:00PM.
