This game drive starts at the Phabeni gate and ends at the Orpen Gate. During this game drive you will experience different areas of Kruger National Park.  You will have plenty of game viewing opportunities and great photographic moments.  We stop for lunch at one of the parks rest camps (own account).

You will be transfered to an exclusive luxury lodge deep in the bush. This is the non-commercial area of Kruger and is not open to the public. The lodge is unfenced, solar powered and absolutely stunning. The lodge sleeps a max of 10 people. That is what we mean when we say exclusive.

Dinner and overnight in luxury accommodation. A private chef is included in the package.

Day 3:

This morning you will enjoy coffee and biscuits before departing on a thrilling sunrise game drive in the greater Kruger reserve. Here game drives often take you off-road as the guide tracks animals in the wild. Expect some intense sightings as the guide gets you as close as possible to the wild animals. You stop for refreshments somewhere deep in the bush.

Refreshments on safari

After refreshments you continue your on the edge of your seat game drive through the African Bush. Later you return to the lodge for a scrumptious breakfast. Afterwards you can enjoy some quiet time. The beautiful deck overlooks a nearby water hole that often attracts various animals.  Later you will depart on a bush walk with your armed ranger.

After your riveting bush walk you will enjoy a light lunch. During the afternoon you can relax and enjoy quiet time or keep an eye on the waterhole. You never know when animals might show up!

Late afternoon you will depart on a sunset and night game drive. The guide uses a spotlight to locate nocturnal animals.

Dinner and overnight.
