5 Day African Southern Kruger Safari

Night Safari with SANParks Rangers

All of our safaris are accommodated within the Kruger National Park and its Boundaries.

Accommodations for this package are either at Skukuza, Berg en Dal, Pretoriuskop, Satara or Olifants Camp depending on availability at the time of booking. Please do not request certain camps as we book what is available between the four camps at the time of you making your payment as it is a public entry park. Accommodation consists of African bungalow type accommodation with either twin, triple beds as the parks accommodations do not have double beds, air-conditioning, and a bathroom en-suite. Each couple or single person has their own African Bungalow and does not share units with other guests on Safari. For this safari we try and use two camps so that you can see different parts of the park.

Our Safaris are carried out by one of our Rangers. it is customary in South Africa to show your appreciation to your guide or driver should you wish to do so after your safari or being dropped off or picked up for your safari.

  • The daily all day game drives (wildlife viewing) in Kruger Park are carried out in our own purpose built 'open vehicle' which has been approved for use by the Kruger Park authorities. You are ensured a more open viewing experience. All vehicles accommodate up to 9 guests. Our Safaris depart with a minimum of two guests daily and we prefer a minimum of 6 per vehicle and a maximum of 9 at times. Please note that although we have radios in our vehicles these are for emergencies only and not to broadcast sightings in the Kruger National Park.
  • You will have a good chance of seeing all of the 'Big 5'. Driving around you will definitely view large amounts of wildlife - Elephant, Buffalo, Zebra, Giraffe, Wildebeest, Impala, Kudu and Waterbuck; just to name a few of the common species. 
  • As you will be visiting the Kruger National Park by law we have to advise you to take malaria tablets. You would also need to check with your Doctor (GP) on the latest vaccinations required for South Africa, as this tends to differ for various countries. If you are pregnant please do not consider a safari to the Kruger National Park unless travelling in May, June or July when the risk is at its lowest. All Shops within the Kruger National Park supply lotions and wristbands permeated with Citronella Oil as a repellent against mosquitoes.
  • It's important for you to check on the required 'travel documents' for South Africa - passport, travel insurance, visa if you are younger than 18 years and travelling on your own or with parents please make sure to carry your unabridged Birth Certificate with you as you will be denied entry if you do not carry the appropriate paper work.

5 Day African Southern Kruger Safari itinerary.


ALL GUIDES ARE HIGHLY TRAINED AND THE HIGHEST PAID IN THE KRUGER NATIONAL PARK

Day 1

Johannesburg - Kruger Park
On entering the Kruger National Park Gate which is in the south of the Kruger National Park, we start your open vehicle game drive with your ranger making your way up to camp for lunch. After lunch, now that it is a bit cooler you start your Kruger Park African safari with your first exciting game drive of the day, hoping to spot as many animals as possible before making our way to camp before the sun sets. After check in and making sure you are comfortable your guide will give you the time to meet him in the restaurant for dinner, and to explain the following day of your Kruger Park African safari activities.

Day 2

Kruger Park
Your 5 day African safari starts as the sun rises increasing your chances of seeing Africa's Big 5, we depart camp early morning offering the best possibility of spotting a prowling leopard or lions enjoying an early morning meal or marking territory along the road. After a leisurely breakfast at one of the Kruger picnic spots on the banks of the river we’ll continue with our game drive, this time stopping off at some of the water holes and dams that follow the line of the Sabi River. Your game ranger is keeping an watchful eye on the sky for eagles soaring on the thermals. You’ll be amazed at the number of birds you will see – there are more than 500 species present in the Kruger Park. (During the heat of the day in the summer months we may return to camp mid-day and leave again three hours before gate closing time). After a mid-day break and lunch we will depart once again on an afternoon game drive making our way to sit at a watering hole for a while and then making our way back to camp as the sun sets. Enjoy dinner once again at the restaurant and prepare yourself for the next days adventures on your Kruger Park African safari.

Day 3

Kruger Park
This morning you will experience another early morning departure before the heat of the day, possibly spotting a few cats, rhinos and elephants along the way and watching the never to be forgotten African Sunrise. Your ranger listens to the radio to hear of any action taking place as well as keeping an ever watchful eye out for any sightings of kills along the way that could be happening or have already happened in the night. During this portion of your 5 day African safari, huge herds of Buffalo can also be spotted enjoying the sweet early morning dew on the grass or just lying eating their cud keeping a watchful eye out for any predators in the area. After breakfast your game drive continues returning to camp once again by mid day for a break from the heat of the day , giving you time to relax by the pool or enjoy a good Siesta before embarking on your late afternoon game drive.

Day 4

Kruger Park
The early bird catches the worm, or so they say, we are up early once again and full of energy as we face another morning in Africa this time your guide will be on the lookout for the cheetah if not already spotted on your previous mornings game drives and the elusive leopard and possibly a wild dog if not already spotted while on your Kruger Park African safari. After breakfast its out and about again returning to camp mid day in order to have a break before getting ready to embark on your sundowner drive which is an exciting adventure hoping to spot as many nocturnal animals as possible. You return to camp in time for your last dinner under the African sky.

Day 5

Kruger Park – Johannesburg
Your 5 day African safari is coming to an end, this is your last morning in the African bushveld enjoying a beautiful one last sunrise and possibly a glimpse of the Big 5 before enjoying breakfast. We make our way out of the Kruger by 10h00 and return to Johannesburg late afternoon.
