From here, guests travel through the Highveld and then down the escarpment through the scenic Lowveld. Guests will stop for lunch (own expense) and reach Pretoriuskop Rest Camp in the Kruger National Park in the afternoon.
After settling into your accommodation, you have some time to visit the Park’s shop, go for a walk and explore your surroundings.
Dinner is served at the park restaurant within Pretoriuskop.
Day 2/3/4/5/6: Full day in Kruger
Note: This can be extended up to 6 full days in the park. No matter how many days you choose, the itinerary for full days in the park remains the same.
It’s an early wake up today – to see the best that the dawn has to offer. You will grab a quick cup of coffee or tea (rusks included) before heading off on your full day safari. Guests usually enjoy fantastic sightings in the mornings, and always with the help of a knowledgeable guide.
After the morning drive guests will stop for breakfast at one of the camps. After breakfast, guests will set off on a game drive exploring the Kruger and its wildlife.
To those guests staying on safari for 5-or-more days – A guided Bush Walk is also included. Conducted by an experienced parks ranger, these walks are the best way to experience the sounds, smells and feel of the African bush. The walk affords the opportunity to get up close and personal with nature and observe things one may miss in a safari vehicle. Just don’t forget to pack comfortable walking shoes for this.
After game drive drive, guests will return to camp to enjoy a delicious dinner and tales told under the stars and relaxation around a camp fire.
(Breakfast & Dinner included)
The Last Day: Kruger to Johannesburg
Today guests will have one last chance to explore and try find what might have been missed in the park. An early morning game drive will see guests out in the park one final time before returning to a scrumptious breakfast. Thereafter guests will return to Johannesburg, a drive which takes at least six hours, so it is advisable to sleep over in Johannesburg on this night.
