What to expect

Day 1: Johannesburg – Kruger Park, Transfer from Johannesburg, check in and Light lunch at Umbhaba Eco Lodge, late afternoon Sunset – Night safari, dinner at lodge. Light Lunch and Dinner Included.

The Kruger National Park covers over 2 000 000 hectares and Kurt Safari was one of the first operators to introduce full-day safaris. This gives clients a chance to see a larger part of the Kruger, compared to a short 3-hour safaris which must remain close to the camps, resulting in driving the same areas on every safari. The extended time increases the chances of seeing more wildlife as we traverse different grasslands and ecological zones.

Day 3: Panorama Tour, we enjoy breakfast at the lodge followed by an exciting day exploring the Northern Drakensberg Mountain ranges, visiting Gods Window, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, the world’s 3rd largest canyon, the Blyde River Canyon, and Lisbon waterfalls, Breakfast at the lodge and Dinner included.

Day 4: Morning safari in the Kruger National Park, another exciting safari with breakfast in the park, returning to the lodge for lunch followed by an afternoon at leisure at the lodge, relaxing by the pool. Breakfast pack, Light Lunch and Dinner included,

Day 5: Morning safari in the Kruger national park, again we depart before sunrise, we spend 6 Hours on Safari, your last chance to find wildlife possibly not been able to find the last few safaris and another amazing day in Kruger, we return to the lodge followed by the Transfer to Johannesburg. Breakfast pack included.

95% of our clients on 5-day safaris encounter all the Big 5.

Kurt Safari makes use of Umbhaba Eco Lodge and Hazyview Sun in Hazyview for our Kruger accommodation, these are privately owned quality lodges, with En-suite accommodation and great meals. Just 10 km from Phabeni gate, Kruger’s premier wildlife area.

We visit God’s Window which allows people a window from the escarpment and 1 000 m drop below 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 have paths and trails to the view sights. To get to the top takes an average person around 15-20 minutes, but it is worth the walk through a natural rainforest environment.

Bourkes Luck Potholes is a stunning natural formation created by water erosion over hundreds of years. The Bourke’s Luck potholes have round carvings and holes with different sizes formed in the Treur River and Blyde river confluence in the red sandstone. Your guides will brief you on all the history of the region. Guests can use small foot bridges and walk over the chasms, looking at the water flowing through the cracks and holes. There are also several small but beautiful waterfalls that litter the area, we spend about 1 hour here and it’s a great walk of about 1 Km in total.

The canyon contains vast amounts of plant life with rivers and dams making up the floor of the canyon. At a certain lookout point on the canyon, guests get to see another beauty of the Panorama Tour, the 3 Rondavels – The Rondavels get their name from their similar appearance to the Rondavel houses a traditional hut commonly built in Africa, these 3 outcrops stand prominently from the landscape.
