Depart from Johannesburg or Pretoria in the comfort of your air-conditioned microbus and travel east across the Highveld farmlands. Continue down the scenic Elands Valley to Nelspruit - centre of our finest citrus farms. Enter the Kruger Park via one of the southern gates in time for lunch. Spend the afternoon on your first exciting game drive looking for elephant, giraffe, hippopotamus and antelope. Our guide will teach you to spot the animals & ensure that you have access to open windows for photos & videos on all game drives. Towards evening arrive at your Rest Camp and book into an ensuite chalet with air-conditioner and insect screens. Freshen up and then time for a "sundowner" drink before dinner in the privatised restaurant and overnight.
Awaken at dawn and listen to the birds before driving out of camp hoping to find some of the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino & buffalo). Enjoy a hearty breakfast then continue to a waterhole to see hippos, crocodiles & birds before returning to camp for siesta or perhaps an afternoon swim. After dinner board the open safari vehicle equipped with spotlights for a night drive ( duration 2-3 hours ) when you can search for predators and other nocturnal species. Overnight at your Rest Camp listening to the sounds of hyena and often lion.
Pack up and depart on another memorable early morning game drive looking for elusive species such as leopard lurking in the African bush. Breakfast and time for shopping before leaving the Park for your homeward journey. Relax and enjoy a drive through the fertile farmlands via Schoeman's Kloof and up to the Highveld for lunch. Arrive back at Johannesburg Airport before 16.00 for onward flights or continue to your hotel or Waybury House.
