We’ll either pick you up from your hotel/guesthouse in Gauteng or from the Johannesburg Airport. We’ll then travel via farmlands to the picturesque low veld towards Kruger National Park. On the way we stop for lunch in the quaint town of Dulstroom. After lunch we continue our journey to a game lodge in the Balule Section of the Kruger Park.

After a short break, during which you may unwind at the bar, have a swim or relax in the tropical gardens, we’ll board the open landcruiser for a 3 hour sunset wild life game drive. Your guide will show you various animals and birds and after darkness falls we use spotlights to locate nocturnal species.

Dinner will be an unforgettable bush braai (BBQ)  at the Marula Tree Boma.

After dinner, we’ll continue the night drive on our way back to the lodge. You stay overnight in a comfortable air-conditioned en suite thatch-roofed chalet.

Awaken at sunrise for an exhilarating day in the bush! We’ll drive you to a remote part of the Balule Game Reserve, where you enjoy a 4 hour bush walk with and armed ranger. Your experienced field guide will lead you through the bush.

After lunch you continue with your game drive. Your experienced ranger will show you many animals and birds that frequent this wildlife paradise. The  Orpen-Satara region  in Kruger boasts open plains and supports large herds of zebra, giraffe and antelope  which in turn attract numerous predators. In fact, the zones we visit have the highest concentration of lions in Africa!
