Overnight: Greater Kruger NP | Dinner
Greater Kruger NP
Johannesburg - Greater Kruger NP - breakfast. The following 2 days will start with an early wake up call - usually around 5 am. This is so we can get out in the park for when the animals are at their most active. This tends to be at dawn and dusk when it is generally cooler for them. We’ll take tea/coffee and a light breakfast before departing on our morning game walk, returning to the lodge in time for brunch.
On a typical walking safari you will be led by expert rangers who will brief you fully before departing. You will observe animal tracks, droppings and other indications of what animals have passed through during the night. It is a fantastic way to learn more about the wildlife and ecology than you ever would on a game drive. The game drives are beneficial because we can cover greater distances as well as allowing us to get closer to the big game.
After a few hours relaxing we take a light lunch and more tea before climbing aboard our safari vehicles for our afternoon game drive, stopping for sundowners at dusk before driving back through the park on a night game drive. Arriving back into the lodge in time to share our experiences over a pre dinner drink followed by dinner at the lodge. Finish the day with a tasty beverage around the camp fire before retiring for the night.
