Highlights

 

Experience the iconic landscape of the African savannah and its legendary wildlife on a 9 day Kruger Safari tour.

Touch down in Johannesburg and use this dynamic city as a springboard for a quick internal flight to Nelspruit Airport, the gateway for visitors about to venture into Kruger National Park. Feel the anticipation of your first contact with this world-famous park build as you check into your luxury lodge and sit down to feast on your first three-course dinner (a nightly occurrence while you’re on safari!).

All grumblings about wee-hour wake up calls are sure to vanish the moment you set out on an early morning game drive. You’re on the search for Africa’s Big 5 – lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and Cape buffalo. The potential for wildlife encounters isn’t just limited to this famous handful however, and some of the other Kruger residents you may come across include giraffe, hippo, zebra, hyena and antelope. These games drives are led by expert guides who will not only offer you their honed skills in helping spot certain species, but also educate as to the conservation work and history of Kruger National Park. The time you have at the Kruger lodge is a mix of game drives and free time (including the possibility for optional excursions to Swaziland and Drakensberg), and you’ll reconvene with other guests every night to swap tales of your time in the savannah.

Those wanting to experience more of incredible South Africa can extend their time away to a 14 day itinerary. These extra days away have you travelling to Cape Town, the vibrant port city on South Africa’s southwest coast, for an itinerary that includes a full-day tour of the Cape Peninsula, a cable car trip to the summit of Table Mountain, a tour of Afrogem, and an entire day devoted to independent exploration.
