Day 1: Johannesburg to luxury Kruger Lodge
Today you fly from Johannesburg OR Tambo airport to Nelspruit, Kruger National Park. Upon arrival your guide will wait for you at the terminal exit and transport you to the luxury Kruger Lodge where you will be spending the next 4 nights. Should you arrive before sunset you can enjoy the local estate wildlife such as the zebras and giraffes roaming freely around the lodge. At night as you lay in your luxury bush chalet remember to listen for the lion’s roar early morning as you are very on the border of Kruger National Park itself. All breakfasts and dinners are included at this safari lodge. Kruger Lodge is known for its traditional cuisine and relaxing swimming pool area amongst other things. Enjoy a complimentary sunset drive on arrival should day light allow.
Day 2: Full Day Guided Game Drive in Kruger National Park
Today you will get up early to start your full day open vehicle game drive experience. After a quick breakfast of fruit, rusks and coffee or juice you will hop into the game vehicle driven by your qualified guide for the day. A short drive takes you onto the Kruger National Park. Here you will spend most part of your day viewing the Big 5 and many more of the animals that Kruger National Park is home to. A mid morning brunch is enjoyed at one of the rest camps in the park and you return home early afternoon before the heat of the South African sun gets too hot.
Day 3: Morning Guided Bushwalk and Guided Night Drive in Kruger National Park
Today you will rise early for your guided bush walk, return to the lodge for lunch and a well deserved afternoon rest before setting off on the guided night drive in Kruger National Park.
The early morning bush walk is guided by a Kruger National Park guide and lasts approximately 3 to 4 hours. The walk will allow you to experience the thrill of examining the wilderness at close quarters, where you will track rhinos, elephants and lions on foot while learning all about the fascinating African bush. You will be transported to walking routes via an open vehicle and it is advisable to wear a hat, clothing items in neutral colours, as well as thick-soled footwear with good ankle support. Please avoid wearing white, cream and red clothing items on walks as it could attract unnecessary attention. In order to maximize the walk experience, insect repellents, binoculars and cameras are a must.
Each evening the night drive is guided by a Kruger National Park professional guide ranger armed with a .458 rifle. An open safari vehicle will transport you into the nocturnal world of the Kruger National Park. The night game drive departs from camp and lasts for approx three hours. You may have a chance of using one of the three spotlights on the vehicle to see some nocturnal wildlife in the Kruger Park. The night game drives are a very enjoyable experience. Upon return to the lodge a platter will be served.
At night the predators are more active, so going on a night drive increases your chances of seeing either a pride of Lions on the move or a Leopard out hunting.
Day 4: Full Day Guided Game Drive in Kruger National Park
Today you get to do the full day game drive again as this time you will drive a different route in Kruger National Park and most likely also encounter many different animals…
After a well deserved rest you head back out to the Kruger National Park again to enjoy your very last game drive of this holiday which is the guided sunset drive. During this drive you will track and view the nocturnal animals of the park as they hunt and roam during the still of the night.
Day 5: Transfer and flight to Praia do Tofo, Mozambique

Post Holiday feedback Form
In short, I had a fantastic holiday and would happily recommend your service and support during the holiday. Your rapid response and resolution to my queries, even on your weekend, gave me total piece of mind. Although I covered a fair amount of distance the experience was very relaxing as you had taken care of everything. I found the use of vouchers both simple and effective. Although it was a bit tricky with the initial flight delays, once I arrived in Africa everything worked well. The overall impression of the providers were incredibly friendly and professional. You managed to design a holiday that pretty much fit exactly to the specifications I asked for. So, in short, thank you for a stress free holiday.
