New LD Copy:
Get an early start with a pickup at your Mpumalanga lodge for the drive into Kruger National Park, one of the biggest and most diverse reserves on the continent. Arrive at one of the many safari lodges in the park to meet your guide, an expert ranger who will also be your driver, and climb into an open-top 4x4 vehicle for your first safari drive.

Enjoy the incomparable scenery as your guide tells you about the sort of wildlife you may see during a morning game drive, including raptors and other bird species. Watch as the sun adds more and more light to the impressive park. Stop at several points along the way to take photographs, listen to more information about the park from your guide or simply enjoy the majesty of watching Kruger wake up.

Take a midday break for lunch at one of the safari lodges inside Kruger National Park (own expense), after which you’ll meet up with your guide once more for the afternoon game drive.

Hear more stories of the wildlife that lives in Kruger, including Africa’s famous ‘Big Five’ — rhinos, elephants, leopards, lions and Cape buffaloes — and keep an alert eye out for them. Learn how the ‘Big Five’ nickname came from game hunters who used the term to describe the most difficult animals to hunt on foot.

After the afternoon game drive, return again to one of the park’s lodges to say goodbye to your guide and get back into the coach for the drive back to Mpumalanga.

Customer Reviews


5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

The driver/guide was very knowledgeable. We saw all of the big five except lions during our game drive. There were plenty of animals to see and also time to rest along the way. I was very happy with the game drive and tour.
