What to expect

Day 1: Private Transfer Via the Panorama Route

We will depart from Johannesburg and head east as we travel to the Blyde River Canyon, the 3rd largest canyon in the world, the 3 Rondavels, Gods Window, and if time permits, the beautiful Lisbon Falls. After the day’s adventure, we arrive at the lodge between 17:00 and 18:00 pm, check in, have dinner and then rest. (Dinner Included)

 Day 2: Private Full Day Safari in the Kruger National Park

Your safari starts before sunrise, with breakfast and lunch in the park being enjoyed at one of the park’s rest camps, returning to the lodge late in the afternoon, with enough time to swim and relax followed by dinner at the Lodge. (Breakfast Pack and Dinner Included)

Day 3: Private Morning Safari in the Kruger National Park and a Private Sunset/Night Safari

Again we depart before sunrise and on this day we spend 5 hours on a Kruger Park safari, returning to the lodge for lunch and a swim before again departing at 16:00 for a thrilling 3 hour sunset/night safari in the Kruger National Park. After the evening drive, we return to the lodge for dinner. (Breakfast Pack, Lunch and Dinner Included)

DAY 4: Private Transfer back to Johannesburg

We leave the lodge at 8 am after a great breakfast, and arrive in Johannesburg between 13:00 and 14:00 pm. (Breakfast Included)

 

*The Kruger National Park covers a massive 2 000 000 Hectares, and Kurt Safari was one of the first operators to introduce the Full Day Kruger Park Safari. Compared to the short 3-hour safaris, which must remain close to the camps, forcing the game drive to visit the same areas each day, the full day trip allows visitors to see and experience so much more. The extended time increases the chances of seeing more wildlife as we traverse different grasslands and ecological zones.

*80% of our clients on 5 day safaris see all of the Big 5.


ACCOMMODATION

Kurt Safari uses two 4-star lodges in Hazyview, Umbhaba Eco Lodge and if fully booked then Sanbonani Resort Hotel,  both are positioned within a convenient 15-minute drive to Phabeni Gate, the main gate of the Kruger National Park.

At Kurt Safari, our commitment to ensuring top-notch service extends across all our tours and safaris, promising our clients an experience of unparalleled high quality.

Day 1: Transfer and Full Day Panorama Tour

(Dinner Included)

Guests will be collected from different lodges and hotels within 5 km of OR Tambo International Airport at 7:00 am or from OR Tambo International Airport Shuttle and Bus Terminal. Private Transport to the Airport is available.

Please confirm your pick-up position the day before the tour by sending an email to online@kurtsafari.com.

We will leave Johannesburg and drive east towards the magnificent Mpumalanga Province and the picturesque Panorama Route, as we make our lodge in Hazyview and the world-famous Kruger National Park. Along the way, the guide will stop at one of the small towns for lunch, which will be on your own account.

As we travel the Panorama Route, we will visit the the Blyde River Canyon, which is the 3rd largest canyon in the world. The canyon is over 40km long and is as deep as 1 200m in certain places. The canyon contains a vast amount of plant life, with meandering rivers and deep dams making up the floor of the canyon.

At a lookout point above the canyon, guests get to see another beauty of the Panorama Route, the 3 Rondavels.

The Rondavels get their name from their appearance which is similar to Rondavel houses, which are traditional huts, commonly built in Africa. These 3 rock outcrops stand out prominently from the landscape.

We then make a stop at God’s Window which allows people a spectacular view from the escarpment. Given that the lookout point is 1000 m above sea level, one can see as far as Kruger and beyond on a clear day!  Your comfortable walking shoes will be needed as the various lookout points require a bit of a walk (on clear designated paths) to get to. To get to the top, it takes the average person around 15-20 minutes, but it is worth the walk, which will take you through a natural rainforest environment.

After the adventure, we will arrive at the lodge between 17:00 and 18:00 pm, check in, have dinner and rest before the next few days, which will be early starts as we go on safari!

 


Day 2: Private Full Day Open Vehicle Safari in the Kruger National Park

(Breakfast & Dinner Included)

We start our safaris just before the sun rises. This is the best time of the day to travel to the park and your guide will know just where to find the wildlife you’ve come to see, including the Big 5 and plains game. Early morning safaris are also the ideal time of the day to see predators.

The lodge will arrange breakfast packs and your guide will stop after about 3 hours of driving for breakfast, a bathroom break and a chance to get coffee. We then continue the safari. The beautiful Kruger is home to a wide variety of eco zones and in each one, there are all sorts of interesting wildlife to see. During our drive we will visit rivers and watering holes as well as plains and Bushveld regions, all the areas that are best known for wildlife sightings.

We then stop for lunch at a rest camp, where the meal will be on your own account, and there will also be time to do some curio shopping or enjoy a cold beer! The guide will then continue with the safari as you head back towards the lodge. We arrive around 15:30 and 16:00 pm, with enough time to relax, swim and have dinner.

 

DAY 3: Private Morning Safari and Night Safari

(Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included)

We leave the lodge early to again be at the gate before sunrise. Today your guide will focus on finding the animals we couldn’t find during the first 3 safaris. The Kruger National Park never disappoints and every day is as exciting as the first.

With such a massive network of roads to choose from, guides will safari in different areas of the park during the different seasons, giving clients the chance to see as many animals as possible. And our early mornings are an opportune time to see predators.

After a short breakfast and coffee stop, we will continue with the safari, making our way back to the lodge, arriving at around 11 am.

Lunch will be served at the lodge, and there is time to relax, swim and enjoy the African sun. At 15:45 pm, we leave the lodge for a 3 hour Kruger Park night safari.

The sun sets early in the winter months, meaning clients will have a longer night safari, and in summer, clients will enjoy beautiful sunsets while on safari. We travel in search of nocturnal wildlife, before returning to the lodge around 20:00 pm for a lovely dinner, and on this last night, it is time to reflect on the last 2 days of safari.

 

DAY 4: Private Transfer back to Johannesburg

(Breakfast Included)

We depart from the lodge at 8:00 am, after a filling breakfast, and head directly to Johannesburg via the N4 Highway.

The guide will stop a few times at rest stops and we arrive at OR Tambo International Airport or at a location within a 5 km radius, between 13:00 and 14:00 pm. We advise clients not to book flights earlier than 16:00 pm. In the event of arriving late at the airport, booking a later flight will ensure that you are on time.
