A 2 night / 3 day guided tour of Kruger National Park
Lying in the heart of the Lowveld is a wildlife sanctuary like no other, its atmosphere so unique that it allows those who enter its vastness to immerse themselves in the unpredictability and endless wilderness that is the true quality of Africa.
The Kruger National Park is one of the largest game reserves in Africa. It covers an area of 19,633 square kilometres in north-eastern South Africa, and extends 360 kilometres from north to south and 65 kilometres from east to west.
The world-renowned Kruger National Park offers a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa. Established in 1898 to protect the wildlife of the South African Lowveld, this national park is unrivalled in the diversity of its life forms and is a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques and policies.
Depart from Johannesburg and drive down to the Southern Kruger National Park - this is a 6 hour drive through beautiful countryside. The route is very scenic as it drops from the "highveld" to the "lowveld" via some beautiful mountain scenery. Whatever time we leave, the intention is to get to an overnight stop in Marloth Park, just outside the Kruger National Park. Marloth itself has an abundance of African mammals and they roam in and around the accommodation areas. There are, however, no big carnivores in this area.
Arise at dawn and after a quick cup of coffee and some rusks we head towards the Crocodile Bridge gate, which is about fifteen minutes away. Enter the Kruger National park and spend the day game viewing in the Kruger National Park with your knowledgeable guide. Around mid-day you will stop at one of the rest camps in the park for lunch, which is for your account.
After lunch, the safari continues and we will exit the park in the late afternoon. Early in the evening we will take a "sundowner" drive down to the Crocodile River, 5-10 minutes away, so that we can see the sun go down and witness animals such as Elephant, Buffalo and Lion coming down to the rivers edge for an evening drink.
Once again we arise at dawn, have a quick coffee and cereal breakfast , and head to one of either Crocodile gates or Malalene Gate to enter the Kruger National Park. Again we will do some game viewing whilst heading to one of the parks Eastern gates in order to exit around 11:00 so that we can start the return journey to Gauteng.
