Short Description

This 5 day Kruger Park package encompasses tracking big game on foot and by open safari vehicle making for an exciting adventure creating the perfect South African safari experience. With the added attractions of a cultural experience and comfortable accommodations this Kruger Park package is bound to please.

Stride Take

South Africa is generally regarded as the best African destination for budget safaris, partly because its off season (May-September) usually finds dry, sunny weather up north, where Kruger National Park – the country’s oldest and largest game park – is located. Kruger, home to the Big Five and many more species, offers walking safaris along with driving safaris, and this tour includes both. Bush walks (led by professional trackers) are based out of a tented lodge while driving safaris are based out of a traditional lodge – where you might spot game from the swimming pool.

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.

Itinerary

Day 1: Johannesburg O.R. Tambo Airport to Kruger Park

In the morning, you will fly from O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg to Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport in Nelspruit. Upon landing you will be met by your driver who will transfer you into the Kruger National Park to your lodge. Built in true pioneer tradition the unique camp reflects the ambience of a 19th century naturalist's rest. Offering 4 African explorer-style tents, secretly tucked away in the bush, the camp overlooks a spectacular open plain, and game can be viewed from the swimming pool.

Day 2: Lodge in Kruger National Park

Feel the African soil under your feet and let your senses come alive as you set out in the early morning to discover the mysteries of Kruger Park. Let your professional guide and tracker teach you how to identify wildlife from their spoor and which plants have medicinal qualities. Satisfy the appetite you worked up during your walk with a scrumptious hearty brunch. The rest of the day is yours to relax, read a book, catch up on some sleep, take a revitalizing dip in the pool or simply enjoy the natural sounds of Africa.

Day 3: Lodge in Kruger National Park

This morning another extraordinary wildlife experience is awaiting you in Kruger Park. Your guide will pick you up at the lodge for the transfer in an open safari vehicle to the next destination where you will spend the following 2 nights of your tour. This camp is the perfect place to sink back into the folds of a comfortable chair on the wooden deck where you can enjoy fantastic views of game visiting the waterhole.

Day 4: Lodge in Kruger National Park

Today you will start with a safari game drive, which offers you the best opportunities to see wildlife from higher off the ground. This is the ideal way to waken all your senses whilst enjoying an unforgettable morning in the wilderness. Have coffee and tea before you can satisfy your increasing appetite at a breakfast feast back at the safari lodge. Seize the rest of the morning to relax before lunch.

The afternoon is yours to read a book, have a nap or simply enjoy the mesmerizing sounds of Africa. After high tea you will depart on an afternoon-night game drive tracking Africa's Big Five. Cool down with sundowners in the bush before returning to your luxury lodge for a scrumptious dinner. The chef will treat you to a cuisine inspired by African flavors combined with western culinary tradition

Day 5: Depart Kruger National Park for Johannesburg O.R. Tambo Airport

Enjoy discovering the mysteries of the bush this morning on a last game drive during your South Africa safari. Then it is back to camp for a delicious brunch, after which you will be transferred to Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport in Nelspruit for your flight back to Johannesburg.

We had a wonderful safari experience that we booked through Siyabona Africa! The company was kind enough to pick us up from where we were staying inside Kruger, and our guide was extremely knowledgeable and made sure we had the best experience possible. Dominique Overmeyer (the reservation specialist) was very helpful in getting our safari booked. I would recommend Siyabona to anyone looking for a great safari experience!

Yolande did a fabulous job in planning our trip through Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda. There was not one glitch with the plans and she was an exceptional communicator before and after the journey. The properties were fantastic and the itinerary exceptional! We did not have to worry about one thing while traveling as all transfers, guides, flights and plans were pre-determined. Thanks for a memorable and easy safari experience. I would highly recommend Yolande and Siyabona and hope to use them in the future for another trip!

Fantastic experience, exactly as promised. Siyabona arranged all details for a private one-day safari in Kruger Park, with a wonderful, experienced driver. We also had some luck on our side as we saw 4 of the Big 5 that day. I cannot wait to return with my entire family.
