Day 1 Johannesburg/Greater Kruger National Park
Sawubona! Welcome to South Africa.
Early morning on day 1 (around 5am) we depart Johannesburg, the 'City of Gold' and head off on an adventure of a lifetime. A truly unique African experience unfolds as we enter the Greater Kruger National Park ecosystem arriving at our Lodge in time for lunch (570 km, approx 7-8 hours travel time including stops along the way).
After some time to settle in, we head off on a late afternoon/evening Big Five game drive in open 4x4 vehicles in a private game reserve. Sundowner drinks are enjoyed at one of the waterholes before continuing our game drive into the night.
After an exciting evening, we return to the lodge to enjoy a traditional South African meal around a log fire.
Located in the greater Kruger, our accommodation for next three nights is wonderfully intimate, with just 14 twin share rooms. Rooms are constructed from local materials and are tastefully decorated and comfortably appointed. The lodge also offers a cosy bar, perfect for chatting with the other guests over a drink or two. There is also a crystal clear swimming pool for a refreshing post safari swim. However we think the quality which makes our lodge stand out from the rest is the friendliness and helpfulness of our team. They are committed to making your stay memorable!
Please note if our lodge is full you will be accommodated in a similar lodge in the same area. You will be advised at the time of booking if our lodge in not available.
Day 2 Kruger National Park
We have an early rise, as we make our way to the world renowned Kruger National Park.
Our wildlife experience begins as soon as we enter the park, heading into prime game viewing areas where we hope to catch a glimpse of some of the amazing animals found inside the park, including the 'Big 5'.
We enjoy breakfast at one of the picnic spots before continuing through the park. Our entire day will be spent game viewing, bird watching and stopping off at the various waterholes en route.
We depart the park in the late afternoon and return to the lodge for an evening of relaxation.
