Itinerary

Day 1: Kruger National Park (Skukuza)

Stop At: Kruger National Park, Malalan Gate, Nelspruit 1350 South Africa
Today your Safari Adventure begins! You will meet the Kruger transfer at O.R. Tambo International Airport in the morning and they will bring you to the Wild Planet Team in Hazview, a small town outside of Kruger. Here you will meet your guide and enjoy a light lunch, we will then take a slow game-drive to Skukuza camp and you can enjoy lunch down by the Sabie River. You will be staying at Skukuza for 2 nights in a Rondawel with 2 beds, en-suite bathroom, AC, fridge and a patio with table and chairs. The camp has a comprehensive shop, restaurant, laundry and swimming pool. Skukuza camp is situated on the banks of the Sabie River and is the perfect place to see animals come for a drink or for a relaxing fence-walk where you can walk around, spotting animals or just sit at a bench and enjoy the beautiful view.

This afternoon we take you out for a short afternoon drive for a chance to spot some South African wildlife. When we return to camp we will prepare dinner before you depart on a Kruger night-drive. A Kruger ranger will take you out with a big spotlight looking for nocturnal life. Many of the cats are active at this time and you can see lions, leopards, serval, and civet in addition to hyena, porcupine, honey badger and much more.
Duration: 1 day

Meals included:
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Overnight at Skukuza Rest Camp in a Traditional Tatched African Hut called a Rondawel.

Day 2: Kruger National Park (Satara Rest Camp)

Stop At: Kruger National Park, Malalan Gate, Nelspruit 1350 South Africa
Just before sunrise, we will meet for a cup of coffee before we depart on a sunrise safari drive. We will drive along the Sabie River, a great place to find many animals here including elephants, lions and hippopotamus. We will have breakfast when we return to camp and then you can enjoy a moment down by the Sabie River before we leave Skukuza and travel north to Satara.

On route to Satara we will stop for drinks at a beautiful picnic site. We will then continue north and travel through a few different lion territories with some well-known lion prides, if we are lucky we may see the rare white lioness. We will arrive at Satara in the middle of the day just in time for lunch. You will then have some time to relax, check out some of the camp facilities, before we depart on an afternoon drive to explore the area.

Satara is located in the grasslands of Kruger, this attracts many grazing animals to the area. It is an excellent area for viewing the wildlife and there is a waterhole just outside the camp where you can spot animals whilst at camp. This evening we will serve dinner at camp.

Day 3: Kruger National Park (Satara)

Stop At: Kruger National Park, Malalan Gate, Nelspruit 1350 South Africa
Early this morning we will go for a safari drive in the Satara area. We will be searching for all the predators that make this area their home, including leopard, lion, hyena, cheetah and wild dog. If we are very lucky we may find a predator on a hunt. We will enjoy breakfast at a picnic site before returning to the camp.

Once we are back at the camp you will have some time to relax and enjoy the camp facilities during the hot period of the day. You can go for a walk along the fence and spot some animals or you can go for a refreshing swim to cool down. After lunch we will go out on an afternoon safari, by now we should have found most of the animals you were hoping to see and maybe some that you were not expecting. We will return to camp at sunset and enjoy a last dinner around the fire in the park.

We will then leave the camp and take a slow drive to the exit gate. Hopefully there will be one last exciting sighting for you to enjoy before we leave the park.

We will then drop you off for the return transfer to Johannesburg, going back to Johannesburg you will take the scenic route.
