Day 2: Full Day open vehicle safari in the Kruger National Park (Breakfast & Dinner included)
Our safari starts very early, before sunrise, to the Kruger National Park in specially fitted open vehicles. We enter through the Kruger Gate into one of the best wildlife areas of the KNP; here you will spend the day on a safari with your ranger and we will visit various water holes, look out points & rivers.
We have our breakfast, which was pre-packed by the lodge, at a local rest camp 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. But be sure to get to bed early, as you will have to get up early as well for another great safari the next day.
Day 3: Full Day open vehicle safari in the Kruger National Park. (Breakfast & Dinner included)
You will have to get up before the sun has risen to depart on another safari with your same ranger as the previous day, but then you get to experience the gorgeous sunrise again. We will visit a different area of the KNP than the day before and the guide will focus on finding different wildlife that might have alluded you the day before.
We will visit various water holes, look out points, rivers, and have our pre-packed breakfasts at a local picnic venue. After that, we will visit bird hides and look for the mighty Big 5 again.
Where we stop for breakfast and lunch – as the day before – depends on the guide’s choice and the direction he chooses to take in the KNP on the day. We return to the lodge at around 4 pm for a swim, relax and catch up on the last few days of pictures and experiences. We have dinner and get to bed before the next day’s Panorama Tour.
Day 4: Full Day Panorama tour. (Breakfast & Dinner included)
Today we awake slightly later and, after a hearty breakfast at the backpackers, we make our way in an air-conditioned closed vehicle towards the Picturesque Mpumalanga Highveld.
We will visit the world’s third largest canyon – the Blyde River Canyon – as well as the Three Rondavels and a small town called Graskop, where we will have lunch and do some souvenir shopping. We also visit Bourke’s Luck Potholes, found in the Blade River and surrounding waterfalls like Lisbon and Mac Mac falls. It is meant to be a relaxed day.
We return in the afternoon for some leisure time, a swim, and time to rest after the past few exciting days. We have dinner and get to bed before the next day’s early morning safari and transfer back home.
Day 5: Morning Safari and transfer back to Johannesburg. (Dinner included)
Our last day and, unlike most operators, we depart again on another safari into the KNP. this is a shorter 4-hour safari, yet it will be within the best possible area in KNP and many a guides’ very favourite safari areas in KNP. We will depart the lodge with our Luggage and, after the safari, take you back to where we collected you unless arranged otherwise.
We drop off at any hotel close to the O.R. Tambo International Airport or any Sandton Hotel.
