Day 1: Johannesburg / OR Tambo International Airport to Greater Kruger National Park
We leave Johannesburg from 05:30 -07:15 am, depending upon your pick up location and head north towards the vast wilderness of the Kruger National Park and the safari hub of Hoedspruit, where a short while later we will arrive at the Greater Kruger National Park Entrance Gate and you’ll climb aboard open safari vehicles for the short drive through the reserve to the lodge.
Check in, freshen up, enjoy some lunch and prepare for your afternoon game drive starting around 3:30 pm (winter) OR 4:30pm (summer).
Home to the ‘Big Five’ as well as 147 species of mammals, reptiles and birds, prepare for an amazing experience. Using all their senses & experience, your Ranger will seek out the animals and stop for anything of interest, possibly the spoor of hunting lions or a herd of dazzling zebras. Sunset time is enjoyed on a vantage point with some sundowners and snacks, before we change into night mode and using flashlights, search for the secretive nocturnal creatures of the bush like a sleek genet or unforgettable view of a leopard.
When it gets really dark, your Ranger will pull out a powerful telescope and regale you with stories of the spectacular African night sky and her many constellations.
Upon returning to the Lodge, a blazing fire and yummy dinner awaits, along with your first night’s sleep in the wild and untamed African bush.
