Full description
Wake up early in Hazyview Town, Skukuza, Pretoriuskop, or Protea Hotel Kruger Gate and get ready for a full day of safari. After your first cup of tea or coffee your guide will be at your hotel or lodge for pick-up before sunrise. A short drive of 10 minutes will bring you to the entry gate of the park where you will skip the normal line of tourists and get in 15 minutes before general opening. Then it's off into the African bush! The early mornings normally bring the best results in searching for predators and the Big 5 animals (lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, and Cape buffalo). Stop at a viewpoint to have a bush coffee or tea to warm up and take in the natural beauty of Kruger Park.

After a (hopefully) action-packed morning drive, go for a late breakfast at the restaurant on site. After breakfast, the game drive continues and you'll visit a different area to explore and search for different types of animals: zebra, giraffe, elephants and many more. Not to mention the abundance of bird life in and around the Kruger Park - there's always something to see! After lunch is a great time to visit the waterholes and riverbanks to see who's moving about and looking for a drink.

In your private vehicle, your guide will be in constant discussion with you about the amazing sights you're seeing and will take into consideration your expectations and plans for the day. With your experienced nature guide, spend as long as you like in certain places and go at your own pace. Comfort breaks are done during the day at picnic spots or camps with bathrooms and small shops for your convenience. At the end of the day, you'll head back to your pick-up point.
