SAFARI OVERVIEW
Our Safari's allow you to get up close and personal with the Fauna and Flora of the Famous Kruger Park. We are Kruger Park Safari Specialists and our intimate knowledge of the park and which areas of the park are most likely, dependant on the Season to be the Game Hotspots, maximises your chances of seeing the Big Five, even on short Safari's. Our Overland Safari Vehicle simply amazes all who travel in her and offers great facilities (see below) with spectacular comfortable game viewing. Our Safari’s have NO hidden costs and include Transport, Park Entry (Conservation Fees), Accommodation, Meals as specified (see Below) and Daily Game Drives in our Safari Vehicle.

GENERAL INFORMATION
We try to depart from a central point in Johannesburg by 06H00 on the morning of the Safari. Generally this is from the Gautrain Rapid Rail Station in Midrand or OR Tambo International Airport Bus Terminal. If you require inexpensive but upmarket accommodation on the night before or the night at the end of the Safari, we can arrange this for you and can collect and drop you off at this accommodation in Beaulieu. If you are a group of 6 or more you can book a Private Safari or if you are travelling Single as a Couple or a Family you can join an existing Safari which requires a minimum of 4 travellers to be confirmed.

ACCOMMODATION
Camping Accommodation is in Canvas Dome Tents that you can stand up in with Lighting for each tent, Comfortable Foam Mattresses with Sheets, Pillows

CATERING
Day 1 includes Full Lunch (en-route) and Full Dinner and the last day includes a Full Brunch at a convenient venue outside the park. On all other days we have Breakfast (Coffee/Tea, Rusks and Muesli with Yogurt), Full Brunch and Full Dinner.

Day 1 - We will collect you at the OR Tambo International Airports Bus Terminus or Gautrain Midrand Stration where you will board the Safari vehicle. Our Safari vehicle is spacious and seats 12 with seat belts, the seat layout is such that it there is a very social atmosphere on board. There are storage boxes for valuables and personal gear you want to keep with you in the floor of the vehicle. Each set of seats has a table between and the seats face each other rather than our guests all facing forward in rows of seats. After a short introduction to the many facilities on board the vehicle such as the music system, flush toilet, heating system and Honesty bar facilities and completion of the indemnity forms we depart for the Kruger National Park. Once we drop off the Highveld Escarpment and into the more temperate almost tropical climate of the Lowveld the scenery becomes spectacular. We head for our Kruger entry gate where we will not only enter the park but have a full sit down luncheon. The excitement of entering one of the premier Game Parks on the planet is palpable and we offer a small prize to the first guest to spot an animal once we enter the park. We now meander on our first game drive towards our first overnight Rest Camp, en-route we will provide interesting information about the park and the various Fauna and Flora we encounter. Depending on your accommodation preference we will either set up camp or book into our accommodation. We will have an alfresco dinner around the fire or in our chosen accommodation. Each day we keep a record of the wildlife spotted and by whom on the sighting board on the back wall of the Safari vehicle. At the end of the Safari the Guest who spotted the most game will be presented with a surprise gift…just a little fun and keeps everyone on their toes. We do have a couple of spare sets of binoculars available for those who do not have. 

Day 2 - After a Breakfast of Coffee, Tea, Rusks and Muesli with Yogurt or Milk, we will follow one of the game drive routes to our next rest camp stopping along the way at a picnic sites for a full Brunch. Our Safari truck is very high and each set of seats has a huge panoramic opening window with a smaller opening window at the top for ventilation which affords great Game Viewing and Photography. There is a more than adequate Charging System with adapters on board for charging Cameras, Go Pro’s, Laptop’s etc. There is a comprehensive nature library on board…everything from the grasses and trees to mammals, arthropods and insects to mention a few. Besides Elephants and possible other Big Five animals we should be spoilt with sightings of the various Plains Game such as Zebra, Wildebeest and other Antelope. There are areas of the park well known for the number of Cat sightings…Lion Leopard and Cheetah and we choose rest camps in these areas. For example Satara is a wonderful rest camp with a swimming pool and beautifully appointed accommodation and excellent camping facilities. We regularly spot the resident Honey Badger padding around camp going about his business. Once we have arrived at our rest camp we will book into our accommodation before relaxing in camp and then going out on our afternoon game drive. Night time in camp is always interesting, the whoop of a Spotted Hyena, the roar of a nearby Lion pride and the very unnerving cry of the Thick Tailed Bush Baby (Galago). Fiery Necked Night Jars, Crickets and Frogs add to the cacophony. If you are on a camping Safari the lighting system on our vehicle insures that when you need to get drinks or access your personal gear on board the truck at night, you won’t be fumbling in the dark.

Day 3 - With an early start after a quick breakfast we follow one of the many game drive routes to one of the beautiful picnic sites where we will have Brunch. Our Safari truck has a heating system for those chilly mornings and Pillows and Fleecy Blankets for your personal comfort. We will Game drive back to our rest camp in time check out of our accommodation. The Safari vehicle has fridges to keep your drinks ice cold…for your convenience we offer an honesty bar at prices much lower than those of the park shops but you are welcome to supply your own drinks and use our fridges. A flush toilet ensures that a fantastic sighting will not be cut short because someone needs the toilet, especially useful when we have children on board. We now head out on our second Game drive of the day en-route to our next rest camp arriving in the late afternoon, check in and prepare dinner…we may spot the resident Spotted Hyena who patrol many of the camp fences and possibly a Small or Large Spotted Genet. Weather depending we do some Star gazing and if you are from the Northern Hemisphere we will point out a few Constellations that you never get to see like the Southern Cross. Our Safari vehicle is equipped with fridges and cooler boxes on board and once the day warms up access to cold water and drinks is always appreciated. We have an alfresco dinner in camp.

Day 4 - This is our last full day in the park and we definitely want to make the most of it…a quick breakfast and we are at the gate for opening time. On seven day Safari’s we try to stay 2 nights at two of the rest camps, this means no pack up on one of the mornings and we can really get into the park very early. Although the theory is that early morning and late afternoon as the best game drive times our experience is that you can spot game any time of the day and some of our most spectacular sightings have been in the late morning. A leisurely game drive with Brunch in the park sees us back at camp. A little free time allows you to browse the shop for a few last minute gifts and curios you may want to buy. If you have chosen to do the Panorama Route (additional cost of R 350 per person) on the way back to Johannesburg then we will exit the park today and head for the Forever Resorts Blyde which poises us perfectly on the brink of the Blyde River Canyon for the Panorama Route we do en-route back to Johannesburg. If we are not doing the Panorama Route then we will do an afternoon game drive ending up at our last rest camp where we will have a full Dinner. 

Day 5 - We sadly pack up for the journey home but not before delighting in the fact that we still have time for a last game drive to the park exit gate and trust us some of our most spectacular sightings have been on this very last day. We will have a full Brunch at a suitable establishment once we have exited the park (included) before making our way back up onto the escarpment from the Lowveld back to the Highveld and heading back to Johannesburg. We will end up back at the Bus Terminus at OR Tambo International Airport from where you can access hotels and guest houses in Sandton and Pretoria via the Gautrain. If your post Safari accommodation is near the Airport these establishments usually offer free airport transfers to their guests, Taxi’s are also available. We will say our good buy’s and see you on your way.If we are on the Panorama Route we visit the Three Rondawels, Bourkes Luck Potholes and Gods Window before heading for home stopping en-route for Brunch (included) and then on to Johannesburg.

JUST SO YOU KNOW (Footnotes) 
Entry Gates, Rest Camps and Routes may differ due to accommodation availability.
