5 Day Best of Kruger Safari

Tour Description

What to expect

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.

90% of our clients on 5-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.
