( 4 Days / 3 Nights)

HIGHLIGHTS: Kruger National Park

Day 1. – Pretoria/Johannesburg – Kruger Park – Satara Camp
7:00 Departure from your hotel in Pretoria, or Johannesburg, or from the international Oliver Tambo airport in Johannesburg (we recommend that you overnight in the 4 star Touraco Guesthouse in Pretoria). The 5 hour drive takes us through the beautiful Mpumalanga Province to the well known Kruger National Park. Established in 1898, this Reserve of over two million hectares (20 000km²) is unrivalled in the diversity of its flora and fauna.
For lunch (own account) we’ll stop at one of the rest camps; at sunset we’ll arrive at Satara, our over-night camp in time for a visit to the well stocked park shop. At 19:00 we can enjoy a typical South African dinner in the restaurant (own account).
The Central portion of Kruger consists of extensive open grass land areas or savannah. This results in the high number of predators drawn to the area due to great herds of plains game like zebra, wildebeest & buffalo.
(Accommodation & breakfast – Kruger National Park)

Day 2. – Kruger Park – Letaba Camp
Early in the morning before breakfast we set off in search of the “Big Five”. Kruger offers all the classical African big game, including elephant, black and white rhino, hippopotamus, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, and warthog. Large carnivores include lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and spotted hyena. There are also many equally enticing species of smaller mammals.
Optionally you could join a guided bush-walk in the company two very experienced South African National Parks game rangers. On foot you might experience breathtaking encounters with lion’s, rhino, elephants and the like!
Breakfast will be enjoyed in one of the rest camps, depending on our early morning game encounters.
After breakfast we’ll continue our drive. Lunch (own account) can be enjoyed in the rest camp, or you can relax at the pool. Letaba offers a great opportunity pay a memorable visit to the Elephant museum in the camp.
In the late afternoon we’ll take a leisurely drive along the Letaba river on the lookout for herds of elephants, hippo and the ever entertaining troops of baboons.
(Accommodation & breakfast – Kruger National Park)

Day 3. – Kruger Park – Shingwedzi Camp
Between 5:00 & 6:00 we’ll leave on our early morning drive, hoping to meet hyenas returning from their night encounters.
We drive north towards Shingwedzi in the northern part of the park, enjoying breakfast along the way. Northern Kruger is well known for big herds of elephants, buffalo and the presence of the majestic baobab trees. Due to the remoteness of the area there are no big Hotels/Lodges here, resulting in fewer visitors and a relaxed atmosphere for connoisseurs.
Once again the pool offers a welcome relief, before we depart for our afternoon drive along one of the dry river beds, in search of the elusive leopard. As an option you might decide to join an optional night game drive.
(Accommodation & breakfast – Kruger National Park)

Day 4. – Kruger Park – Pretoria/Johannesburg
Another rewarding morning dawns, encouraging us to leave early to witness the resident lion pack at last night’s zebra kill. Breakfast will be enjoyed along the way before we leave Kruger through the Phalaborwa or Punda Maria Gate, in time to be back in Johannesburg/ Pretoria, or the airport at approximately 16:00 (an optional overnight stay can be arranged in the Touraco Guesthouse).
