What to expect
The Kruger National Park is one of the worlds’ leading nature reserves and on a 4-day safari we spend quality time on safari making the most of your time in Kruger.
This is a slightly more expensive safari as overnighting in Kruger is more costly than staying outside the park, your guides will also be staying in the Rest Camp. This means Safaris depart early at sun rise, returning around 11 Am then some relaxing time in the mid-afternoon, and we continue on safari in the later afternoons, with qualified and experienced guides.
Your 4 day Kruger Explorer will include an Afternoon Safari on Day 1, A Morning and Afternoon safari on day 2 and 3 , and a morning safari in the Kruger Park on Day 4.
Clients can book an optional night safari with the Kruger rest camps, Only Sanparks vehicles are permitted to drive after dark in the reserve.
Accommodation: Depending on the time of the year and depending on availability we will choose rest camps perfectly suited for the season, Accommodation will be in En-Suite, Air-conditioned units in one of the Southern Rest camps of the Kruger National Park.
