Authentic African Bush Safari

We travel from Johannesburg and make our way to the lowveld… The two reserves that we will be staying in are connected to the Kruger National Park and are perfect for getting up close to animals. On the tour we’ll be spending time on foot with plains game, interacting with vultures and cheetah and going on the trail of the BIG 5 in our own private area of Africa! Get ready for the best African bush safari you have ever been on…

Pick up from OR Tambo International & drive through some of the most scenic areas of South Africa on our way to the small town of Hoedspruit! From there we travel 30 minutes to the Guernsey Reserve and arrive at our camp for the next 3 nights, Panzi Bush Camp.

This camp is a charming 16-bed camp, situated in a wooded gully in the Guernsey Private Nature Reserve near Kruger Park’s Orpen Gate. The thatched A-frame cottages have en-suite toilet and shower, and each has a private balcony. The reserve has a variety of plains game, including giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, buffalo and impala, as well as smaller nocturnal game such as genet, civet, porcupine and honey badger. The camp waterhole is popular with the animals and the guests, and a viewing deck gives lovely views of the waterhole and the Drakensberg Mountains.

For the next few days we head out on foot and in a safari vehicle to view the amazing animals that call Panzi home. This is not a BIG 5 reserve so we can relax a bit and learn about the animals, birds and trees that live in the area. I will show you some amazing things and also teach you the basics on how to track and survive in the wilds of Africa. We’ll also be visiting a local animal rehabilitation centre and a cheetah breeding centre!

Day 4 we make our way to our private camp in the BIG 5 Klaserie Game Reserve (part of the Greater Kruger Park) and get there just in time for lunch, a safari and enjoying our first night under the stars enjoyed with a magnificent home cooked meal, prepared by our own, personal chef Lindsay!

This camp is completely private and only your family and I will be present allowing you privacy that you will not find anywhere else. Situated just off the banks of the Klaserie River in a BIG 5 game reserve open to the world-famous Kruger National Park, the camp is a luxury camp. Recently upgraded and refurbished, it is set amongst beautiful natural gardens with well-established trees and fantastic bird life. It is the perfect camp for family and friends to come together and experience the bush. Each room is luxuriously built with a stylish en-suite bathroom. The camp has a comfortable lounge and indoor dining room, outdoor seating, barbeque and fire area, and a splash pool

Our days are spent getting up early and enjoying a morning game drive looking for Africa’s Big 5! Beside the Big 5, all the major plains game like giraffe, zebra and kudu are all present providing amazing photography options! Lion and leopard are seen often in the area. . I like to show you how intimate Mother Nature can be and will also introduce you to the smaller and lesser known creatures. We will also learn about local trees and their medicinal properties as well as getting to know the local bird population

This tour is VERY private and perfect for people who want to experience an African safari on their own steam. Morning and evening drives are designed around you and your family

What an adventure! We leave our camp after a safari and an amazing breakfast and make our way back to Johannesburg, stopping in Dullstroom once more to swap stories and photos!
