Before the sun starts beating down in the lush African bushveld, we collect you from your lodges in Hazyview, Skukuza, Pretoriuskop Camps, or at the well-known Perry’s Bridge Outpost if you stay out of town. When the sun has just risen and woken up the wild animals, it is the ideal time to witness the first animal activity of the day. The great predators like leopard, cheetah, wild dogs and hungry lions are just up and ready to hunt before the mid-day sun.
Once you’ve had breakfast or a light snack, it is a great time to visit waterholes and watch the animals come in to quench their thirst before taking on the heat of the day. Our guides are all qualified and have years’ worth of experience in the park. They love nothing more than to share them well of knowledge with you and to make sure that you have the best safari experience possible. We will stop at a picnic spot or rest camp throughout the morning for breakfast, and restroom breaks. Please bring with sun cream, a hat, sunglasses, comfortable shoes, warm clothing in the winter months and a rain jacket in the summer months. Mineral waters are included on all safaris.
