1st Day
Leave Johannesburg in an air-conditioned microbus with an experienced Kruger Park driver / guide. Travel east across the Highveld farmlands and down the Valley towards Nelspruit, the capital of Mpumalanga province. After a lunch stop, get your cameras ready and enter southern Kruger Park for the first exciting game drive. You will be driving through lightly wooded bush and you can expect to see antelope, giraffe and possibly elephant. Before sunset travel a short distance to Sabie River Bush Lodge where we stay overnight. Book into a lodge room or en suite safari tent with aircon and modern furnishings. Time to relax on the deck looking across the extensive Sabie River hoping to see some hippos or crocodile. Dinner or a barbeque in the Gecko Lapa Restaurant makes it a memorable stay.

2nd Day
Enjoy breakfast at the lodge then enter Kruger Park for your morning game drive. Travel through bushveld areas and probably along the river looking for Big 5 species ( lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo ). Keep your camera ready for any animals crossing the road. At lunchtime stop at a Camp or picnic spot for refreshments before continuing with the afternoon drive. Arrive at your Rest Camp and book into a chalet with air-con and screens over the windows to prevent insects. Your guide will arrange dinner in the privatised restaurant and assist with any special diets.

3rd Day
Head out for an early morning game drive in search of lion and other big cats whilst it's cool. Stop at Lower Sabie if possible for breakfast and a great view of any hippos or crocodiles in the river. Continue on the mid morning game drive travelling through the open grasslands so it's easier to see smaller species. Return to your Rest Camp for a break during the heat of the day - time for lunch, curio shopping 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 predators or other nocturnal species such as hyena. Your guide will collect you for dinner in the main camp restaurant and then walk back to your chalet under the starlit sky.

4th Day
Depart from camp for your final game drive searching for those elusive animals such as leopard often found in trees or rocky outcrops. For the bird watchers it's one of the best times of the day when you can listen to the different calls in the bush. Breakfast and review your checklist, then leave the Park to begin your homeward journey. Travel past orchards and forests to Nelspruit and back up to the Highveld. Arrive in Johannesburg at O R Tambo Airport or nearby hotels by 16.00. Please allow 1.5 hours connecting time for local flights or 3.0 hours for International flights. Passengers staying at hotels in the northern suburbs are advised to use the Gautrain to Sandton or make arrangements for a transfer.
