  1. 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 evening game drive starting around 3:30 pm (winter) OR 4:30 pm (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. 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.

    OVERNIGHT: Private Bush Lodge - lunch, dinner, bed & breakfast

  2. DAY 2: Greater Kruger National Park

    Your Ranger will awake you with coffee, tea and rusks before heading out into the sunrise to see what has been happening in the dead of night and follow spoor of animals on the move. You will also be lead on foot to discover sights which you would miss from a vehicle. Vervet monkeys, birds in song, this truly is a beautiful way to bring on a new day in South Africa. Return to the lodge for a hearty breakfast and possibly relax around the pool for the morning or recline upon a chaise lounge overlooking the waterhole.
    We repeat the previous evenings cycle and head out again in the late afternoon for another game drive.

    OVERNIGHT: Private Bush Lodge - lunch, dinner, bed & breakfast

  3. DAY 3: Greater Kruger National Park to Johannesburg / OR Tambo International Airport

    Enjoy an early morning game drive with your experienced game ranger, pursuing the animals not yet ticked off your list.
    After your game activity you will return to the lodge for breakfast before heading to the entrance gate to connect with your return shuttle pick up at 11:00 am. Leave the park and travel back to Johannesburg, arriving at around 6:00 pm.



This safari departs early in the morning at 06:45 am from OR Tambo International Airport. It is recommended that clients do not book any connecting flights on the return day as travel times and stops may vary depending on the interests of fellow guests.

Please note: This safari takes place in the Greater Kruger National Park which runs along the unfenced western border of the Kruger National Park and offers the same excellent African safari experience as the game is able to flow freely through the bush into these areas.
