The day starts early in the Kruger National Park depending on the time of the year. It is always good to be out and about as early as possible in order to still find the cats on the prowl before the heat of the day. Breakfast is had at either your camp where you are staying or at one of the many picnic areas found in the park.
After breakfast, we continue our game viewing, stopping off at water holes, following river lines, making our way back to camp during the heat of the day in summer October to April allowing you to relax, swim, read your book or enjoy a siesta.
