2 Nights Kruger National Park and 2 Nights Sabi Sand Game Reserve
Day 1: Gauteng – Kruger Park
We depart from Johannesburg between 06h30 – 08h00 to
allow for various collection points. Our route takes us
through the wide open spaces of the Highveld, down the
escarpment and through the scenic Lowveld area. We stop for
lunch en-route (own expense) and reach the Kruger National
Park and Skukuza Rest Camp in the afternoon.
After we have settled in, we head out on our first game
drive! We conduct all our game drives in specially adapted
4x4 open game drive vehicles to allow our guests the best
possible vantage point. On our return, we have some time to
visit the Park’s shop, go for a walk & just
ourselves with our surroundings. On our return, we have some
time to visit the Park’s shop, go for a walk & just
familiarizing ourselves with our surroundings.
Dinner is a two course meal, served al fresco at our
private camp. Wine is served with dinner but guests are
welcome to bring along additional / alternative drinks which
can be purchased at the shop. Dinner included
2: Full day in the Park
We rise early and depart on an early morning drive in the
hope of finding some of the nocturnal and diurnal animals
before they settle down for the day. This is also the most
active time for most predators, both big and small. With the
sun slowly climbing higher above the savannah, we experience
all that the park has to offer, including the well marketed
Big 5 and the incredible wealth of flora, birds and smaller
mammals that make the Kruger Park unique.
On returning to Skukuza, breakfast/brunch will be ready
at our camp. You then have time to enjoy a swim, visit the
Skukuza museum, catch up on some sleep, visit the park shop
which includes African curios, general food items and
drinks, take a walk around the camp, or simply relax at the
viewing platform in front of the restaurant, which overlooks
the Sabie River. Skukuza is also a bird watcher’s paradise!
Be sure to bring along your binoculars!
We share safari stories at the camp fire under the stars
after a scrumptious dinner served at our camp. Breakfast,
Lunch & dinner included
3: Kruger Park – Sabi Sand Game Reserve
After an early wake-up call (the time varies according to
the seasons and park gate opening times) we have tea or
coffee & rusks (dried biscuits to be dunked in your coffee
or tea). Our morning safari will take approximately 3 hours.
Your guide has an intimate knowledge of the park, which
contributes a great deal towards brilliant sightings!
Directly after breakfast at our camp, we head to the world
renowned Sabi Sand Game Reserve in our closed, air
conditioned tour vehicle. We arrive in time for lunch and
have some time to freshen up before departing on your
afternoon game drive in one of the lodge’s open game drive
vehicles. This drive generally takes about 4 hours and tends
to extend into the early evening. The Sabi Sand is
particularly famous for its brilliant sightings of leopard.
Although we cannot guarantee these sightings, your chances
of seeing these magnificent animals are very good! Our goal
is to arrive for lunch after which you have a little time to
freshen up before we head off on our game drive in one the
lodges open vehicles. The afternoon game drive will continue
on into the evening, returning to the lodge about 4 hours
later. Dinner is served under the stars (weather
permitting). The day ends with discussions around the open
fire about what you saw today and the plans for tomorrow.
Breakfast, Lunch & dinner included
Day 4: Full day in Sabi Sand
Sabi Sand lodges offer two game drives per day, during
which your experienced game ranger and expert local Shangaan
tracker will share their extensive knowledge and love for
the African bush with you. Due to a carefully planned and
managed habituation process, animals and birds in the
reserve have become used to having the game drive vehicles
in close proximity, without feeling threatened. This allows
us to get really close to them and forms part of the appeal
of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve!
After breakfast guests are welcome to join the morning
walk. The rest of the day is spent at leisure, relaxing in
your room or at the pool. Lunch is served around 14h00.
Meal times are a sociable affair, with dinner served
under the stars (weather permitting). Only the freshest
produce is used and this is served with the local wines
which South Africa is famous for. Breakfast, Lunch and
Day 5: Sabi Sand – Panorama Route – Johannesburg
An early wake-up call and coffee signals the start of
your last safari of this journey. One last opportunity to
experience the magic that only the African Bush can offer!
Upon your return breakfast is served. Directly after
breakfast we begin our journey back to Johannesburg. The
final highlight of our safari is exploring the renowned
Panorama Route! Attractions visited include the Blyde River
Canyon, Three Rondavels, Lisbon Waterfalls and Pilgrims
Rest. We stop en-route for lunch (own expense).
The drive back to Johannesburg takes at least 6 hours and
guests are advised to sleep over in Johannesburg on this
night. Breakfast included

reminded to not book any flights earlier than 19h00

enough time to get you to the airport. We recommend that you
rather stay over in Johannesburg if possible. Since we

of flight tickets, should we arrive later than expected.

early flights can be arranged in advance at an extra charge.
