The Kruger National Park is the home of more than 500 bird species, 100 species of reptile and 150 mammal species, including the Big 5 (elephant, rhinoceros, buffalo, lion and leopard) and the endangered African wild dog. During the 3 Day Kruger Tour you will experience all those exciting things that South African nature has to offer.
You are picked up from your hostel or Johannesburg Airport and brought to
Tremisana Lodge in the Big Five Balule Game Reserve via Dullstroom. There
we board an open Landcruiser for a sunset drive in this Big Five Game
Reserve. After dark, spotlights are used to locate nocturnal animals. In the our
new Marula Tree Boma deep in the African bush we provide you with a
traditional bush braai. Accommodation for the night will be an en suite chalet
at Tremisana Lodge.
After breakfast, we spend the day travelling through the Orpen Gate of Kruger.
Due to the added elevation and because it has no windows the open-sided
gameviewer allows for excellent viewing and photographic opportunities. A
qualified guide accompanies you to show the various animals that frequent
this outstanding wildlife environment. The Orpen Gate of Kruger provides the
highest percentage population of giraffe, zebra and antelope, which then again
attract numerous lions and other predators. Dinner and accommodation is
provided at Marc’s Camp. Every tent is supplied with bed and bedding, towel
and soap, electric light and a fan.
The day starts with an early morning Bush Walk accompanied
by an armed ranger, who is able to show you various interesting details of the
bush, for example, insects, spoor and scats. Additionally, you get an excellent
chance of encountering Buffalo, Nyala and other game on foot. After breakfast
we drive to the Three Rondawels of the Blyde River Canyon before we return
to the hostel or airport at around 17h00.
