Stop at Lower Sabie if possible for breakfast and a great view of any hippos or crocodiles in the river. Continue on the next game drive travelling through the open grasslands so its easier to see smaller species. Return to your Rest Camp for a break during the heat of the day - time for lunch or a swim. Approximately 16.00 board the National Parks safari vehicle equipped with spotlights for a sunset drive ( duration 3 hours ) and a chance to see nocturnal species such as hyena or other predators. Your guide will collect you for dinner in the main camp restaurant and then return to your chalet for overnight.

Here you can expect to see herds of wildebeest with zebra and hopefully some predators. Enjoy a hearty breakfast at Satara followed by another game drive to the exit of Kruger Park.
