Johannesburg/Greater Kruger National Park
Sawubona! Welcome to South Africa.
Early morning on Day 1 we depart Johannesburg, the `City of Gold` and head off on an adventure of a lifetime. A truly unique African experience unfolds as we enter the Greater Kruger National Park ecosystem arriving at our Lodge in time for lunch (570 km, approx 7-8 hours travel time including stops along the way).
Kruger National Park
One of the largest game reserves in Southern Africa, Kruger National Park is home to over 500 bird species, 100 species of reptile and 150 mammal species, including the Big Five and the endangered African wild dog.
An early rise, as we make our way to the Kruger. Our wildlife experience begins as soon as we enter the park, heading into prime game viewing areas where we hope to catch a glimpse of some of the amazing animals found inside the park, including the
Enjoy breakfast at one of the picnic spots before continuing through the park. Our entire day will be spent game viewing, bird watching and stopping off at the various waterholes en route.
We depart the park in the late afternoon and return to the lodge for an evening of relaxation.
Greater Kruger National Park/Panorama Route
The following morning we depart the lodge and make our way up the Drakensberg Escarpment. Our journey takes us along the Panoramic Route, some of the most stunning scenery South Africa has to offer. The sights en route include: God`s Window, Bourke`s Luck Potholes, Three Rondavels and the magnificent Blyde River Canyon. After a full day of exploring we return to the lodge and relax around the
fire listening to the night sounds of Africa.
Your final day at the lodge spent at your leisure, relaxing at the lodge or taking part in the various optional activities on offer.
In the afternoon you will be transferred to a neighbouring game reserve for a final game drive. Guided by the aid of spotlights, we track the elusive creatures of the night, after which we return to the lodge to enjoy a boma dinner.
Rise early and head out on a morning bush walk. Guided by a qualified nature guide, we learn about nature`s finer details like bird, tree and spoor identification.
Transfer back to Johannesburg (600 km, approx 8-9 hrs). There`s plenty of time to stop and explore along the way. Take in amazing views at the viewpoint over the awesome Blyde River Canyon.
On arrival in Jo`burg you can be dropped at the airport or at our finishing point hotel. No accommodation is provided for tonight, but we are able to book you additional accommodation in Johannesburg. Please ask at time of booking.
You should arrive back in Johannesburg between 5pm and 7pm (depending on traffic), so we advise that you don`t book any international flights until after 10pm and domestic flights before 8pm.
Located in the greater Kruger, our accommodation is wonderfully intimate, with just 14 twin-share rooms.
Rooms are constructed from local materials and are tastefully decorated and comfortably appointed. The lodge also offers a cozy bar, perfect for chatting with the other guests over a drink or two. There is also a crystal-clear swimming pool for a refreshing post-safari swim. However we think the quality which makes our lodge stand out from the rest is the friendliness and helpfulness of our team. They are committed to making your stay memorable!
Please note if our lodge is full you will be accommodated in a similar lodge in the same area and the accommodation may be in a tented lodge
