Kruger Park Itinerary:

1st Day
Leave Johannesburg in an air-conditioned microbus with our experienced Kruger Park driver/guide. Travel east across the Highveld farmlands and down the Valley to Nelspruit - capital of Mpumalanga province. After a lunch stop get your cameras ready and enter southern Kruger National Park. Spend the afternoon on your first exciting game drive looking for antelope, giraffe and possibly elephant. Before sunset arrive at your Rest Camp and book into an air-conditioned chalet with private shower, toilet and screens on the windows to prevent insects. Time to freshen up before dinner arranged by your guide in the main camp restaurant. Walk back to your chalet under the starlit sky for a good night's sleep.

2nd Day
Awaken at dawn and head out for an early morning game drive to look for lions and other Big 5 species ( lion, leopard, elephant, rhino & buffalo ). 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, some curio shopping or a swim. Approximately 16.00 board the National Parks open safari vehicle equipped with spotlights for a sunset drive ( duration 3 hours ) hoping to see predators or other nocturnal species such as hyena. Your guide will collect you for dinner in the restaurant and everyone can discuss the day's highlights.

3rd Day
Early departure from camp for the morning game drive to search for elusive animals such as leopard often found in trees or rocky outcrops. For the birdwatchers, its a wonderful opportunity to see many different species in the bushveld or near the water. Breakfast and time for final photos then leave the Park and enjoy a relaxing homeward journey via Schoeman's Kloof then up the escarpment to Johannesburg. Arrive back at O R Tambo International Airport or nearby hotels by 16.00. Please allow 1.5 hours connecting time for local flights or preferably 3.0 hours for International flights.
