Pick-up - Breakfast.
You will start your Safari in the early morning, collection will take place from your accommodation in White River / Hazyview or Nelspruit International Airport (KMIA) with an Open Safari Vehicle by your Dedicated Professional Field Guide. Heading for the nearest Kruger Park gate to ensure we enter the Park at Gate opening time, allowing us to maximise Game Viewing and possibly see some nocturnal predators like Lion and Leopard that might still be out on the prowl before the sun reaches it’s peak.
After entering the Park you will be briefed by your Dedicated Field Guide who will give you a brief History of Kruger, some interesting information regarding the reserve along with a few safety tips to ensure safety and comfort of all. Game drive will begin with your Field Guide following a carefully planned route along river courses and frequenting watering holes giving you maximum exposure to the many treasures on offer in the heart of the Kruger National Park.
Around Breakfast time after we’ve had plenty opportunity to take in the sights and sounds of the rolling hills that surround us and enjoyed all the big game encounters that cross our path, we will arrive out our Breakfast destination, either a main Restcamp or Picnic site found throughout the Park.
Breakfast - Lunch
Depending on your package option you will be treated to your pre-packed Breakfast or Buffet Breakfast professionally catered by our Shinzelle Edible Safaris Catering Team (Click here to view menus) at one of the Picnic Sites, or choose from the Restaurant menu at the various main camps in the Kruger, giving you an opportunity for some curio shopping at the same time.
Game Drive continues immediately after Breakfast as most Kruger regulars know, game viewing is scarce during the heat of the day and in the summer months can get unbearably hot, for this reason our itinerary plans to make the most of this period by visiting Historical Sites, Lookout Points as well as Bird Hides that are conveniently scattered around the park (of course Game Viewing is our main priority and we will remain flexible should there be sightings that are of more interest to you, our guests).
At Shinzelle Safaris we believe the mark of a good guide is one who can keep guests entertained when no game is on show. For this reason our Field Guides will take special care to point out the various, Trees, Grasses, Wild Flowers as well as Insects, Reptiles and Smaller Mammals to keep you engaged when big game is scarce.
Lunch - Drop-off
After the afternoon stretch you will have the opportunity to enjoy a delicious Lunch either Buffet style or preppacked and prepared by our Shinzelle Edible Safaris Catering Team (Click here to view menus) , or a selection off the Park restaurant’s menu.
Our Safari will commence after Lunch where you will enjoy the afternoon sightings that Kruger presents with your guide interpreting every detail in a professional, educational, ethical and fun manor. As the sun begins to sink and the earth starts to cool, we might be lucky enough to find a troop of baboons begin there evening antics as they start their routine forage, or watch in awe as an Elephant herd baths in the watering hole before quietly disappearing back into the bush.
We will reach the Kruger Park Gates shortly before closing time as the sun begins to set over the savanna where you will be transferred safely back to your accommodation with lifelong memories fresh in your mind.
