Itinerary

Day 1: Johannesburg to Kruger National Park

Accommodation: Berg-en-Dal or Pretoriuskop Rest Camps

The group departs from Johannesburg between 06:00am and 07:00am to allow for various collection points.  The drive takes you through the wide open spaces of the Highveld, down the escarpment and through the scenic Lowveld area. You will stop for lunch en-route (own expense) and reach the Kruger National Park and rest camp in the afternoon.

After settling into your accommodations, you go out on your first game drive which is a SAN PARKS sunset drive. A sunset drive affords you the opportunity to see nocturnal animals that are more active at night and the Park’s rangers are allowed to return after the normal gate closing times. Note that these drives take place in one of the Kruger Park’s vehicles with a Park’s ranger. This is not a private game drive and there may be other guests on this drive. 

Dinner is a three-course meal, served al fresco at the private camp within Berg-en-Dal or Pretoriuskop. Wine is served with dinner but guests are welcome to bring along additional drinks which can be purchased at the camp shop.

Day 2 - 5: Kruger National Park

Accommodation: Berg-en-Dal or Pretoriuskop Rest Camps

Safaris are all about early mornings, getting out there and seeing animals! After an early wake-up call, you have tea or coffee & rusks (dried biscuits to be dunked in your drink!) You then set off on the morning safari which will take approximately 3-4 hours. Your guide has an intimate knowledge of the park, which contributes a great deal towards brilliant sightings!

On returning to camp, breakfast/brunch will be served. You then have time to enjoy a swim, visit the park shop which includes African curios, general food items, and drinks, take a walk around the camp, or simply relax at the viewing platform in front of the restaurant. The camps are also a bird watcher’s paradise! Be sure to bring along your binoculars!

After a siesta, you set off on the afternoon game drive. All game drives are conducted in specially adapted 4x4 open game drive vehicles to allow guests the best possible vantage point.

Returning to camp, you enjoy a scrumptious dinner and share safari stories around the campfire under the stars.

Day 6: Kruger National Park to Johannesburg

Accommodation: Own Arrangements

The sun rises over your final day in the Kruger and you have one last chance to find the animals that have eluded us thus far.

After breakfast, you travel by road back to Johannesburg. The drive back takes at least 6 hours and guests are advised to sleep over in Johannesburg on this night.
