We collect you at the airport or hotel and transport you directly to the Kruger National Park. On arrival we drive to your camp for the evening. Once entering the Park gates however, you are in the wild and your safari has begun. View many animals as you make your way to camp with your Endless Summer guide on hand to identify, explain and spot the many wonders of Africa!

The next three days you will go on a mixture of game drives either at night, with the park rangers or privately with your personal guide. Wake to the smell of hot coffee as you prepare for your early game drives. Return to camp for a cooked brunch or have brunch over looking a typical African scene at one of the many picnic areas. The heat of the day is used for rest and to enjoy the camps. Then a snack lunch is served befor afternoon and sunset game drives. Return to camp for a traditional South African Braai (BBQ), sit around the camp fire and enjoy the star filled heavens. A treat is always a little night walk around the camp fence with a spotlight to view some night animals!!

Day 1 - Arrival Day
We will pick you up at Johannesburg International airport and transport you to the Kruger National park. After booking into your accommodation you will embark on your first small game drive to get your first feel of the African bush. The length of the drive will depend on what time we manage to leave the airport and how tired you the weary traveler is.

Day 2 - Full Day Safari
Wake before sunrise to get a head start on things, this is the best time to view game as the nocturnal animals are still active and the other animals use the cool of the morning to move to the watering holes. After a few hours of game viewing your guide will find a comfy spot to stop and have coffee/tea and some biscuits. Take in the sites and the smells as you enjoy Africa in its finest! Move along before stopping for breakfast which is prepared outdoors at a picnic site,  with magnificent view of the surrounding bushveld. During the heat of the day relax by the pool or under the garden trees as you identify the many birds found here. Then set off on your afternoon game drive, again your guide will find a great spot to have a couple of sundowners and afternoon snacks, as you gaze over the vast savannah! Return to camp to freshen up before meeting around the campfire to share the stories of the day. Have a wonderful supper, again prepared by your guide in true South African style, on open coals and under the African stars. End it all off with a bush walk to try see some night creatures, with a nightcap of Amurula Cream liqueur on ice……

Day 3 - Full Day Safari & Alternate Activities
Start this day much like the day before, an early rise to catch the worm (or lion) and a four hour game drive.  You’ll drive to another section of the park for some variety and have a bush breakfast at a picnic spot along the way. After letting that all settle, carry on at a leisurely pace and find a cool spot to relax and take in the sights. Snacks will be served along the way, cheese and biscuits and traditional South Africa biltong. Then make your way back towards camp as the sun seeps and enjoy your last sunset in the African bushveld. Supper will be served under the stars again!!

Day 4 - Departure day
Enjoy one last early morning drive, a shorter one, as we need to return to camp to have breakfast and check out. Then we’ll have a small drive through the park as we make our way towards the exit gate and hopefully get one last glimpse of something special. Then it’s onto the airport to depart with some fine memories of time well spent.
