This 4 day adventure safari is designed with families and groups in mind, wanting an exciting bush safari but having limited time. Your guide will go all out to entertain you on your open vehicle game drives as well as keeping an eye out for our Big Five.
From Numbi Gate your 4 day adventure safari follows the Numbi to Skukuza road, viewing plenty of game as we go. Many animals move towards water in the hot afternoon sun, and you’ll see herds of impala and waterbuck on the banks of the rivers and at the waterholes. When we pass a shallow section of the river you may see a family of hippos sleeping in the river, a sharp lookout being kept by the head of the family. Crocodiles are dotted about on the banks of the river, basking in the sun. By the time we arrive at Skukuza, the largest camp in the Kruger National Park, you will have had a good idea of what’s to follow in the next few days, on your Kruger Park adventure safari.
You’ll be booking into camp before the gates close for the night, and after checking in you’ll have a chance to freshen up in your chalet before joining others for a delicious buffet dinner at the camp’s restaurant.
The Kruger Park adventure safari gets going early in the Kruger park in order to have a greater chance of seeing the sometimes elusive game, you’ll get a wake-up call at 05h00 in order to be on the road when the gates open. Early morning is the best time to view our elusive leopard and lions still on the prowl as well as the hyena scavenging for food before the heat of the day.
After a leisurely breakfast you continue on your game drive while your ranger is keeping an ever watchful eye on the sky for eagles soaring on the mid morning thermals. You’ll see, tall elegant giraffes, their heads among the branches of the acacia trees, and a family of elephants crossing the road ahead of you on your 4 day adventure safari. You’ll see plenty of birds too – there are more than 500 species present in the Kruger National Park.
We’ll get back to camp mid-day allowing you time for lunch and relaxation by the pool side or time for a siesta before departing on your Sundowner safari returning to camp by 20h00, in time for a scrumptious buffet dinner, which you can enjoy in the open air, listening to the never to be forgotten night sounds of the African bush. The distance laugh of a hyena, or the roar of a lion.
Today is a new dawning in Africa with brilliant sunrises, the singing of beetles and birds as they get ready for another day in Africa. Back on your Kruger Park adventure safari, your guide is on the lookout for the parks preditors, leopard on the prowl, prides of lions on their morning walk to the watering hole for a cool drink before taking a siesta during the heat of the day. After breakfast, your 4 day adventure safari continues with a game drive before you make your way back to camp for a mid-day break, departing once again by 15h30 on another afternoon open vehicle drive returning to your camp as the sun sets. Dinner is once again served in the restaurant.
This morning after another spectacular sunrise we once again go out to spot the last of our Big 5 and smaller antelope, cats and birds, enjoying breakfast and then getting ready to depart from the Kruger by 09h30 and making our way back to Johannesburg. This concludes your Kruger Park adventure safari.
