After welcoming you on board our comfortable and well-equipped Land Rover open safari vehicle, we’ll make our way to the southern section of the Kruger for a leisurely game viewing drive.
This region is known for its herds of elephants and buffalos; is home to the king of the jungle and of course wherever lion prides are, game such as antelope, zebra and giraffe abound. Whether you’re a first time visitor, or a return guest, our qualified guides will enthrall and entertain you with their fantastic knowledge of the bush and its inhabitants.
First stop is one of Kruger’s picturesque rest camps for lunch and after fuelling up our bodies, we head out for the afternoon drive before returning to camp at sunset, to overnight in one of the Kruger’s rondavel’s (round, thatched hut) or chalet’s.
As the sun melts away and the early evening bushveld chorus begins, enjoy a sundowner on your veranda before dinner and settling in for the night.
The animals get off to an early start, so we do too! It’s the perfect time to spot elusive night-time predators that are still active. Perhaps we’ll see a hyena, maybe a leopard.
After stopping for breakfast, we’ll continue our search for the magnificent creatures of the wild and then head back to camp for lunch and relaxation until mid-afternoon.
As the afternoon cools, we’ll board the open vehicle for another thrilling wildlife viewing experience. This is the time of day when animals become active again and the chances of seeing baboon youngsters playing and adults grooming one another make for an interesting – and often hilarious – encounter!
With evening drawing closer, we head back to camp for a relaxing evening spent recounting experiences and listening to the laugh of a hyena, or the roar of a lion.
Awaken to a spectacular African sunrise, before embarking on an early morning open vehicle drive. Today we’ll visit a river or dam where we can observe hippos in their groups of 10 – 30. Chances are we’ll spot a crocodile too – these reptiles average 5m in length, live up to 100 years old, and are well represented in Kruger’s rivers.
Before heading back to camp for lunch and relaxation, we could see a majestic Kudu bull, a shy Duiker, the endangered ground hornbill and any number of birds.
Mid-afternoon sees us back on board the open vehicle. And given that we’re in radio contact with other open vehicles, our destination could be to a pride of lions, or an elusive leopard lounging in the fork of a tree.
We arrive back at camp before the gates close and once again overnight in the Kruger.
After breakfast, we leave for a final drive in this world-renowned game reserve. It’s the last opportunity to spot wildlife that may have eluded us – perhaps even the graceful Cheetah, who hunts during the day to avoid the major predators.
With Kruger fading into the horizon we head for Hazyview, where we’ll arrive at midday, all the richer for the experience.
Overnight in Hazyview is optional.
