Our itinerary for your Kruger National Park experience has been carefully planned to guarantee an exceptional adventure. Each day is filled with excitement, from discovering breathtaking landscapes to observing magnificent wildlife. We invite you to join us for an unforgettable journey through Africa's renowned national park.

Day 1

Arriving in Johannesburg - Kruger National Park

Your driver will pick you up in Johannesburg before taking you to Kruger National Park. At the point of entry, your game drive begins, and you might see lions, elephants, and giraffes ambling through the savannah. At the time the gates close, head back to camp for a satisfying dinner (for your own account) and a restful night.

Day 2

Kruger National Park

The early morning game drive is a perfect opportunity to witness the wildlife at its most active. As the sun rises, animals are on the move, hunting for food or seeking shelter from the heat of the day. After a few hours of game viewing, it's time to head back to camp for a well-deserved breakfast. The rest of the morning can be spent relaxing by the pool. In the afternoon, it's time to head out again for another game drive. This time, you may see different animals than in the morning, as they come out of hiding to take advantage of cooler temperatures. As dusk approaches, you'll return to camp.

Day 3

Kruger National Park - Drop Off in Johannesburg

The cool morning air as we climb into the open safari vehicle, ready to embark on our last adventure in Kruger Park. We drive through the savannah, scanning the horizon for any signs of movement. After breakfast, we pack up our belongings and say goodbye to the Kruger Park
