Many don’t understand the appeal, but once you have experienced an overnight in a luxury tented camp with only canvas between you and the sounds of the bush outside, you will feel like you are one with the wild. Chances are it won’t be the soundest sleep you ever have – don’t underestimate how loud the bush sounds can be, or how close an animal can seem, especially lions roaring to gather their pride, but this is exactly the appeal.
This is a super adventure for the whole family, and very easily combined with a few nights in a “traditional” game lodge to experience the best of both worlds.
You will be met upon arrival at Johannesburg airport, and assisted with your flight to the Kruger. You will be transferred directly to your lodge in a private reserve adjacent to the Kruger National Park, where your safari adventure begins!
You will be taken on game drives in open game viewing vehicles in the early morning and late afternoon/evening. Late afternoon and evening drives include sunset drinks, and glimpses of the amazing nocturnal creatures. Larger game frequently sighted in the reserves include the big five, so this will be an absolute delight. In between meals and drives, you can just watch the game and birdlife pass by while relaxing by the pool or take a walking safari through the deep bush, accompanied by an experienced, armed ranger. It might be a little more strenuous, but it’s very exciting – The viewing of the animals from a vehicle just doesn’t seem to compare, to being part of the nature around you when out on a walking safari
3 Nights on Safari in a Private Reserve on a full board basis including two escorted game drives daily
After your morning game drive and breakfast you will be transferred to the airstrip for your return flight to Johannesburg.
