Leave Johannesburg in an air-conditioned microbus with an experienced Kruger Park guide. Travel east across the Highveld farmlands & along the Elands Valley towards Nelspruit, the capital of Mpumalanga. After a quick lunch stop enter southern Kruger Park for your first exciting game drive when the guide will explain how to spot animals & search for birds. You will be driving through lightly wooded vegetation & you can expect to see giraffe, antelope, elephant & possibly lion. Before sunset proceed a short distance to Sabie River Bush Lodge where we stay overnight. Book into a lodge room or en suite safari tent with aircon. Time to relax on the deck looking across the extensive Sabie River hoping to see some hippos or crocodile. Dinner in the Gecko Lapa Restaurant followed by a good night's sleep.
Early breakfast at the lodge then depart for a full day of game viewing in Kruger with suitable stops for refreshments & shopping. Travel through bushveld as well as grassland areas & probably along the river looking for Big 5 species as well as general game. There will be ample opportunity for photos including birds. Later in the afternoon you can expect a wonderful view of an African sunset. Arrive at your Rest Camp & book into a chalet with air-con & insect screens. Dinner in the privatised restaurant & overnight.
Head out for a memorable early morning game drive in search of lion or other big cats. Stop at one of the Camps for breakfast then continue game viewing to a water point to look for animals drinking, crocodiles lazing on the bank & hippos. During the afternoon you can relax at camp & visit the curio shop. Approximately 16.30 board the open safari vehicle for the evening drive ( duration 3 hours ) & a chance to see nocturnal species such as hyena with spotlights. Return to the Rest Camp for dinner & then walk back to your chalet under the starlit sky.
Depart from camp for your final game drive searching for those elusive animals such as leopard often found in rocky outcrops. Breakfast, presentation of Big 5 certificates to successful passengers, then leave the Park to begin your homeward journey. Spend time discussing the check-list of animals seen in Kruger. Arrive back in Johannesburg by 16.00 - drop off at the Airport or proceed to your hotel in the suburbs.
