Itinerary

Day 1 - 2: Kruger National Park

Accommodation: Rhino Plains Camp

Today you arrive in the renowned Kruger National Park and check in at Rhino Post Safari Lodge no later than 2pm for your transfer to Plains Camp. Guests traveling from Johannesburg are advised to have departed by 7am at the latest in order to make good time.

After arriving at Plains Camp, you are afforded a short window in which to explore the camp itself. High tea is served and is followed by a briefing on the 'do's & don't's' whilst on safari, conducted by the lodge's expert guides. You will venture out on an introductory walk, later returning to sundowners and a short night drive. Enjoy a sumptuous dinner under a canopy of stars. 

An early morning wake up call is softened with coffee, tea, and rusks, before the group departs again for the next walk. Guides take to sharing their extensive understanding of the area and its culture, identifying animals, trees, grasses, insects, birds, the medicinal uses of plants, local folklore and basic tracking and survival skills. In order to avoid the midday heat, the three to four-hour walks are conducted almost exclusively in the early mornings and late afternoons

After a light snack on the walk, you settle into brunch back at camp. Spend the hot hours in between walks enjoying the camp's Africana book collection, or cool off in the plunge pool while watching the regular passage of zebra, buffalo, giraffe, elephant, rhino, and lion. The afternoon safari ends with the group setting up camp on a set of raised platforms, and sleeping underneath the stars for the evening. Dinner is prepared on an open fire while guests watch as wildlife congregate around the watering hole.

Day 3 - 4: Kruger National Park

Accommodation: Rhino Post Safari Lodge

After an early morning walk or optional sleep out experience, you will enjoy brunch followed by the chance to grab a shower and pack up your belongings before transferring to Rhino Post Safari Lodge.

Refreshments are served upon arrival, followed by brief introductions to the lodge. After settling in, you are invited to high tea, and then an afternoon/evening game drive. Sundowner drinks are enjoyed under a reddening African sky before setting back off into the night to spot some of the nocturnal residents.

Dinner and conversation are enjoyed on the deck back at the lodge before retiring to your room for the evening.

Following another early morning wake up call and much-needed coffee and snacks, you depart for a sunrise game drive. Brunch follows, with the opportunity for a midday siesta before high tea is served. You then depart on a late afternoon drive, keeping clear of the midday heat.

The evening sees guests enjoying another delicious dinner and each other's conversation, before retiring to your room for the evening. 

Day 5: Depart Kruger National Park

Accommodation: Own Arrangements

After one more early wake-up call and freshly brewed coffee or tea, you set off again on a game drive for one last opportunity to spot some of Africa's finest wildlife. 

Once you return to the lodge brunch is served and you are given some time to freshen up and pack your personal belongings before bidding farewell to the bushveld.

"Dear Gloria, Thank you very much for your excellent service, guidance and organisation of our 16 days trip, from Johannesburg, Krüger park, victoria falls and driving the garden route down to cape town. Everything was really excellent organized, all flights, accomodations and land transports! Also the selection of the accomodations were very good and met our expectations fully! Again thanks a lot for your support and I can recommend safari.com by 100% and Gloria as well, especially for german speaking travellers, as she speaks german perfect and fluently! We will contact you in any case for our next SF trip!"

"It was very good in general, I did two trips with Safari.com, one to Kruger that was impeccable and other to the garden route. Both trips were absolutely different but both were perfect. Even then you can expect different things for a trip, the trips exceed our expectations. In the garden route I traveled as a local with “Rock the Route” which was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Kruger was simply awesome!!!"
