Search of the Big Five

We drove all the trails we could in the Kruger and ended up spotting 4 of the Big 5 animals that live in the Kruger.

Without a doubt, this was the highlight of our 2 1/2 week trip to South Africa. Our rangers, Moses and Delphine, were friendly and knowledgeable. We were fortunate to only have 4 people in our group. What a pleasure to feel so close to the land. The morning walks always included something wonderful, from spotting a rhinoceros to looking at... More

I would recommend everybody visiting Kruger to take this (or one of the other) wilderness trails. It was an experience of a lifetime for me. With a group of 8 participants plus 2 guides we spent two superb days and three nights in the bush. We got up early to start our morning walk while it was still cool and... More

1st time on this trail having done 10 previous trails in KNP. Rangani goes about his business in a quiet but thoroughly professional manner and was ably assisted by Shaun. The camp is in good condition and the food was good. The waterhole at the camp also provided some great close views of game. The area is very different to... More

In and around Kruger you have the opportunity to live in luxury and view tons of game close up from your car. Instead you could choose to go on a wilderness trail, see less animals and when you see it, see it from further away. If this does not scare you away, you would like to live in a camp... More

December and apparently the end of the season, there was one more trail after ours before they stop for a month. We have done 3 wilderness trails before and we can't recommend them highly enough as a chance to slowly take in the beauty of Kruger. This time it had a bit of an odd feel to it as there... More

My guests went on this wilderness trial and loved the experience. The Game Rangers are excellent at what they do and as hosts, they were very good. This is a real bush experience so make sure you get the list from San Parks on what to take on the trial. What a way to meet Africa.

We spent three nights on the Wolhuter Wilderness Trail in June, 2015. Our guides Rangani and Moses were very professional and knowledgeable as well as being a pleasure to be around.
