Itinerary

Day 1 - 2: Kruger National Park

On the first morning of your Ultimate Kruger Safari you will catch a flight from Johannesburg O. R. Tambo International Airport to Skukuza Airport in the Kruger National Park. There, you will be met by your guide for a road transfer to Rhino Post Safari Camp. Keep a look out for wildlife en-route to the private luxury Kruger lodge where you will spend two nights. After a refreshing welcome drink and some relaxation time, head out on a game drive in a private concession of the Kruger.

Led by the local guides, spot prides of Lion, or perhaps even the endangered White Rhino. Return to a delicious meal served around the roaring fire in the boma. Fall asleep to the gentle sounds of the bush at night. In the morning, choose to sleep in, relax at the lodge or head out on an early morning game drive. Watch as the bush comes to life with the beginning of a new day, smell the fresh clean air of the morning. Return to a hearty breakfast at the lodge. Set out once again and discover the diverse wildlife of the Park, including herds of Impala, Kudu and Zebra. Once again, savour a tasty picnic at one of the scenic rest stops.

Your guide will help you spot and identify the many species of birds in the park such as the majestic Tawny or Martial Eagles. Don't forget the smaller animals such as Warthog, Banded Mongoose and Steenbok. Head out on an exciting afternoon game drive in search of the Big Five. Stop for sundowners before searching for nocturnal animals such as Porcupine, Civet and Leopard on an evening game drive.

Day 3 - 4: Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve

Your adventure continues as you leave the south of the Kruger National Park and head towards the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve. Enjoy a game drive en-route to the Sabi safari lodge where you will spend the next two nights. Inyati Game Lodge enjoys a prime position on the banks of the Sand River, surrounded by unspoilt wilderness. After a sumptuous buffet lunch, have a siesta before the afternoon game drive. The region is famous for its big cat sightings and perhaps you will see Cheetah or Leopard.

In the evening, tuck into a gourmet meal under a canopy of stars in the boma area. Fall asleep in your luxurious suite to the sounds of the African bush. Enjoy a morning game drive before breakfast, after which you will leave the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and travel through the Kruger Park once more seeing wonderful wildlife along the way. Tuck into a tasty picnic lunch before heading to Hazyview to have an intimate encounter with a group of habituated African Elephants.

Day 5: White River

You will arrive at Oliver's Restaurant & Lodge in Hazyview after a road transfer from the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve. Located close to the Kruger National Park, this South Africa safari lodge is surrounded by many banana plantations. This country lodge enjoys a secure position in the White River Country Estate, overlooking the White River Golf Course. Enjoy a luxurious stay in your private suite, prepared with a range of modern amenities.

After settling into your Hazyview suite, a road transfer will take you to Elephant Whispers for an exhilarating afternoon with the gentle giants of the bush. This sunset interaction allows you to walk with the elephants or enjoy an unmatched position on the back of this wildlife wonder. Return the elephants to their stable, where you will assist the guides in hushing these creatures to sleep.After a magical evening, you will be returned to the safari lodge in Hazyview for a freshly prepared dinner and a chilled bottle of wine.

Day 6: Johannesburg

On the final day of your 6 day safari in South Africa, you will depart from Oliver's Restaurant & Lodge on a road transfer to Nelspruit. The 30-minute transfer will deliver you to Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport, where you will board a 1-hour flight to O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg. In Johannesburg, you will meet your onward travel arrangements.

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.

Accomodations

Rhino Post Safari Lodge, Mutlumuvi, Kruger Park, South Africa

With the camp's location inside Kruger National Park and sharing a common boundary with the world-renowned Mala Mala Game reserve, you will be amazed by exceptional game viewing.

This is a small safari camp with only 8 luxury tented suites, ensuring outstanding service and personal attention. Step into a surreal world of luxurious tented accommodation under huge Jackalberry and Tamboti trees creating an oasis in the middle of the bush overlooking a seasonal river bed.

Here you will be spoiled with first rate cuisine served under the stars whilst enjoying a glass of the finest wines available from its extensive wine cellar.

Merely 40 minutes from the main gate of Kruger National Park, this unique wilderness area offers eco-tourists the ideal base for close encounters with the Big Five from the comfort of open safari vehicles and experiencing authentic safari style accommodation.

Inyati Game Lodge, Sabi Sands Game Reserve, South Africa

The Sabi Sands Game Reserve's popularity lies in its diversity of species and relaxed big game, allowing for intimate sightings and close-up photography.

The game lodge completes the experience with its impressive lawn running down to the banks of the Sand River and a wooden deck at the river's edge allowing for superb game viewing without having to leave the camp. With riverine vegetation being the natural habitat of elephant and hippo, you are sure to see these animals enjoying the cool of the water during the heat of the day when you are not out on game drive.

The main lodge areas are all open for unspoilt views over the river bank and surrounding bush, and from relaxing afternoon drinks at the Warthog Hollow bar, to outdoor dining in the open air boma with a bush barbeque , the staff at the lodge know just how to make sure that you never forget where you are - in the middle of the African bush an a safari adventure!

Riverside location with scenic vistas across the Sand River
