3 Day Greater Kruger Semi-Luxury Tour
Greater Kruger National Park area
This area is home to an array of spectacular scenery and world famous for its abundance of animal, bird and reptile life. The area is stunning bushveld with typical wooded Savannah, offset with Marula, Knobthorn, Jackalberry and Leadwood trees to name but a few.
The Private Greater Kruger Reserves shares unfenced borders with the Kruger National Park which means predators and other wildlife roam freely throughout. On a walking safari guests will be led by experienced and professional game rangers through a wildlife area rich in game including lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, buffalo as well as hyena, hippo, giraffe, zebra and a whole host of other wildlife. In addition to walking safaris, Big 5 game drives and night drives are offered allowing guests to participate in a full spectrum of safari activities.
The reserves in the Greater Kruger are private meaning that the guests get an unbeatable safari experience.
Greater Kruger National Park
Get picked up from O.R Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg Hotel or catch a quick domestic flight.
The drive to the Lodge can take about 5-6 hours.( Domestic flights are more or less 1 hour)
Arrive in the afternoon, settle in and enjoy lunch, before you depart on your first exciting open vehicle Sunset Game drive.
Return back to your accommodation and enjoy dinner around the boma fire.
The following day, during summer, an early wake-up at 05h00 starts the day (while winter is later at 05h45). It gets very hot and guides like to bring guests back to camp before 9am while it is still cool. Walks take between 2 and 3 hours and are followed by a hearty breakfast at the dining table.
Between 11h00 and 14h30 guests have time to themselves. Relax with a book, take a nap with the sounds of the local birdlife, have a dip in the pool and catch a tan in the sun. At 14h30 lunch is served, consisting of salads, cheese, cold meat and a light quiche or pie.
Game drive begins at 15h30 and traverses this exceptional area of the Greater Kruger National Park area. At the time the sun sets, guides take their guests to a spot where they can snack on biltong, nuts and chips, while sipping on something cold(Inclusions of snacks depends at which Lodge you will be staying). Return to the lodge by 19h30 and freshen up before dinner at about 08h30.
