Explore the Kruger National Park.

An incredible 3 Star Lodge Tour to Kruger National Park in South Africa. The Kruger Explorer Safari travels from Johannesburg to Kruger National Park via the Panorama Route highlights of God's Window, Lisbon Falls and Graskop.

After settling in at the comfortable lodge we embark on an afternoon or evening game drive in Kruger. Spend a full day game viewing in open 4x4 safari vehicles on day two, hopefully sighting the Big Five, amongst numerous other wild animals and birds in the vast Kruger Park. Take a final game drive on the third morning, before returning to Johannesburg where this action-packed Kruger Explorer Safari ends.

Kruger Park Conservation Fees
The Kruger Park charges a daily Conservation fee for each person. The cost of this fee is not included in the rates indicated for this safari. However, upon making the reservation this can be included in the total safari price and then paid in advance to make it easier when on safari.

Health & Clothing
- Take malaria precautions and consult with a medical doctor before embarking on your trip.
- Use of insect repellents is advised as risk can be reduced significantly.

Clothing
South Africa’s climate is generally sunny and pleasant. Winters are usually mild, although snow falls on the mountain ranges of the Cape, Eastern Cape, Free State and Natal and occasionally in lower-lying areas, when a brief cold spell can be expected throughout the country.

Required clothing: Lightweight cottons and linens and rainwear for summer. Warmer clothes are needed for winter.

Please Note
This safari can be done over 3, 4, 5 or even more days with guaranteed daily departures. Should you wish to prolong your stay on this safari, your additional day(s) will be similar to Day 2 in the itinerary.

Day 1:
Our professional Driver/Guide will pick you up in Johannesburg in an air-conditioned vehicle and transfer you via the scenic Panorama Route to Kruger Park. En-route we will visit Pilgrim’s Rest, God’s Window and the Graskop Falls.
We will arrive at Hippo Hollow Lodge (or similar) in the afternoon where you will have time to check-in and freshen up before we depart on a game drive in the Kruger National Park.

You will depart on either an afternoon game drive or a sunset game drive (where you will get your first experience on an open 4X4 Safari vehicle.) The late afternoon offers the lower light game viewing with most animals heading down to the watering holes and offers excellent game viewing opportunities. (please note the sunset drive is subject to availability)

Accommodation: Hippo Hollow Lodge or Similar (Dinner Bed and Breakfast)

Day 2:
Your Professional Field guide will advise you off your pick-up time for this morning. You will be picked up from your lodge early in the morning on your full day game drive in an Open 4X4 Safari Vehicle.

We will enter Kruger National Park and enjoy a full day game drive on this day. We will stop several times during the day for you to freshen up and to stretch your legs. Your Professional Field Guide will ensure that you see the wildlife Kruger Park is renowned for and give you interesting facts and information on all aspects of the African Bush and Wildlife. (With a bit of luck, you will be able to add the Big Five to your “spotting-list”) We will enjoy breakfast at one of the Kruger Park Camps (packed by the lodge). We will also visit the Skukuza Main Camp of the Kruger Park.

We will return in the afternoon to your Lodge where the rest of the evening will be at leisure. Dinner can be enjoyed at the Lodge. (Depending on your dates of travel – dinner could be accompanied with traditional dancing)

Accommodation: Hippo Hollow Lodge or Similar (Dinner Bed and Breakfast)

Day 3:
We will once again collect you for an early morning game drive to try and find the illusive animals that you might have missed on your previous drives.

Fantastic tour! Only one thing to improve, the Safari vehicles. Leaking root, no rain protector during rainy day to prevent the rain water from coming into the vehicle. We got wet in the chilling winter. Not fun thing to have ourselves wet because you lost focus to search for animal. Otherwise great fun and we enjoy the tour alot.
