To get a better understanding of what you’ll experience with this special, have a look at the itineraries below:
Our Kruger Camping Safari
Day 1: Your journey begins
We normally leave Johannesburg between 06:00 and 08:30 to allow for various collection points. The shuttle/transfer is an additional cost. As for the route … think a drive through the scenic wide open spaces of the Highveld, down the escarpment and through the lovely Lowveld area! To appease those rumbling tummies, we also stop for lunch en-route (own expense) and reach the respective camps in the afternoon.
After settling into your accommodations, you’ll get to jump straight into your exciting safari experience with our first game drive – a SANParks sunset drive! Get ready to see the animals that are more active at night in all their glory. Even better … the Park’s rangers are allowed to return after the normal gate closing times.
With this, it’s important to remember that these drives take place in one of the Kruger Park’s vehicles, so this is not a private game drive and there may be other guests on this drive. Also, children under 6 years of age are not permitted on open vehicle drives.
After the drive, it’s onto an appetising dinner. Enjoy a three-course meal, served al fresco at our camp. Wine is served with dinner but you are welcome to bring along additional or alternative drinks which can be purchased at the shop.
Days 2 & 3: A Day in Kruger Park
The bushveld always enjoys an early start and so do you. After all, safaris are all about getting up early, and getting out there and seeing animals! After your wake-up call (this time varies depending on the seasons and park gate opening times), you’ll get to warm up with a cup of tea or coffee, and snacks. Then, it’s time for the morning safari (it takes approximately 3-4 hours). Lucky for you, your guide will have an intimate knowledge of the park … this contributes a great deal towards memorable sightings! But you know what they say – the more time you spend on a safari, the better your chances of seeing the animals!
On your return to camp, brunch will be ready. After this, you’ll have some free time, which you could use to explore the camp, catch up on the sleep you missed in the morning, or peruse the park shop for souvenirs for the family, yummy food items, and even stuff like international adapters.
We then set off on the afternoon game drive. Remember, all our game drives are conducted in specially-adapted, 4×4 open game drive vehicles to allow you the best possible vantage point. In the evening, we share safari stories under the stars, after dinner served at the camp. (Breakfast and Dinner included)
The last day
As the golden sun rises over our final day in the Kruger National Park, we have one last chance to find the animals that have eluded us thus far. Then, after breakfast, we return to Johannesburg. The drive back takes at least 6 hours and guests are advised to sleep over in Johannesburg on this night. (Breakfast included)
The Panorama Route
As if our itinerary isn’t awesome enough, we also offer an optional excursion to visit select attractions along the Panorama Route. You’ll get to see renowned attractions like Blyde River Canyon, Three Rondavels, Lisbon Falls and God’s Window. We stop in one of the small towns en-route for lunch (own expense), too. This excursion is available free of charge, and replaces your game drives for that day. It will be coordinated by our staff while you are on safari with us. (Note that this excursion is not available on the first or last day of your safari due to time constraints.)
