All safaris start before sunrise, Mpumalanga means the place of the rising sun and is the first province in South Africa to see the sun rise. This is the best part of the day, not knowing what to expect, after a short drive to the park, we enter the park gates and your guide will have an idea of the best areas to find the wildlife including the Big 5 and plains game, this is the finest time of the day to see predators. The Lodge will arrange breakfast packs and your guide will stop after about 3 hours for a breakfast and bathroom break and chance to get a coffee. We then continue with your safari, Kruger offers a variety of eco zones and each one has a different range of wildlife, we visit rivers and watering holes as well as plains and Bushveld regions. We then stop for lunch at a rest camp, where this meal will be for your own account, time to do some curio shopping or enjoy a cold beer! The guide will then continue with the safari heading towards the lodge, we arrive around 15.30 – 16.00 pm, time to relax, swim and have a great dinner.
The last safari and again we depart the lodge before sunrise, we will have another packed breakfast at one of the rest camps or picnic sites. The guide will focus on animals we couldn’t find on the first 2 safaris and hoping for lion and leopard as they are most active in the early mornings. The Kruger National Park has 148 mammal species and over 500 bird species. So, lots to see and photograph. After a short breakfast and coffee stop, we will continue with the safari returning to the lodge at around 11 am. Here you say goodbye to your guide and freshen up before the journey back to Johannesburg.
