    What to Expect
    You will be picked up at the Skukuza Airport at 10:50am. Head out on your first game drive in an open-air safari vehicle with an experienced guide. Choose to see the park come alive at night with our Night Game Drive (own expense) or spend your evening relaxing. Enjoy a delicious dinner at the camp restaurant. There is a convenient shop in the park that offers fresh and affordable food. Spend the evening at either the Rest Camp Skukuza, a double occupancy bungalow with air-conditioning and an en-suite bathroom. You may also stay right outside the park in similar accommodations in Hazyview Town, depending on availability.

    Day 1: Arrival Skukuza Airport

    Flights coming in from Johannesburg and Cape Town arrive at either 10:50am or 1:05pm. You will be picked up and taken directly on your first game drive in an open-air safari vehicle with an experienced guide. If you are traveling in the morning, your lunch break is around 1pm.

    Then check into your accommodations and have a short break. In the afternoon, head out on another safari adventure until the gates close. Enjoy a campfire gathering in the evening or go out on a Night Game Drive (own expense, approximately R350 per person) with a Kruger Park Ranger.

    Day 2: Full Day Kruger Park Safari

    Rise to the beautiful sounds of the park and enjoy some coffee or tea. Then, head out to the bush on a full-day safari. Comfort stops are made during the day for meals. Your guide will take you to different locations within the park where different animals can be spotted. Keep your eyes open for Africa's Big 5 including lions, elephants, rhinos, buffalo, and leopards. Be amazed at what the African bush has to offer by way of stunning landscape and rich habitats.

    Watch the sun set and choose from a relaxing evening in camp or an evening adventure on a Night Game Drive (own expense).
