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.

It was a great experience. I was very happy with all the attention. I had the opportunity to see lions attacking a group of buffalo and was priceless. Nothing like being in their house.

Totally worthy. I booked the Relaxing Kruger Safari and stayed at Camp Shawu, from the airport pick up, the reception, the safari time, the meals and all the services during my stage where first quality. I recommend Siyabona Africa, everything was exactly as explained and showed in the brochure and proposal. The price was good considering the level of the service. I travel in April and it was good season to spot all animals, including big five!If you are looking for a safari adventure but at the same time to relax and appreciate nature in a comfortable way this is the type of safari you should pick!

We had booked a stay in Camp Shawu via Siyabona Africa in Aug 2015. The booking experience was very pleasant and fast. They were transparent and had provided multiple options to make our trip memorable. The destination specialist Dominique was very helpful in answering multiple queries we had during the booking process. Overall a very positive experience and will definitely book via them in the future as well.

My family and I came over from NZ to a wedding in Durban. We had limited time so did not want to travel too far but still get to see some wildlife. Well were we pleasantly surprised. What a stunning place. Got to see some hippos, buck, zebra, ostrich, giraffe and many more. It was amazing only having to drive a short distance to experience something I will remember for a long time. Our accommodation was stunning to say the least and open the double doors right onto nature. Totally recommendable my only negative is that we did not have time to stay longer.

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.
