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 5 Day Kruger Tour you will experience all those exciting things that South African nature has to offer.
We pick you up from your hotel in Gauteng or Johannesburg Airport and travel
to the subtropical Lowveld via the Highveld grasslands. At Tremisana Game
Lodge in the Balule section of the
Kruger National Park you have time to unwind at the bar, enjoy a refreshing
dip in our pool and relax in the beautiful tropical gardens before we board an
open Landcruiser for a 3h sunset drive. This is your first opportunity to
experience the varied fauna and flora of Africa. We enjoy watching the
magnificent African sunset and, after dark, use spotlights to locate nocturnal
animals. A traditional South African dinner is served in the Boma and you
spend the night in one of our en suite chalets.
DAY 2 :
We drive to a remote spot along the Olifants River to enjoy a 4h Bush Walk at
sunrise and experience the thrill of following big animals accompanied by a
ranger leading you through the bush at a pace you can handle. Adrenalin
surges will come to their expense, even if your ranger is adequately armed.
After returning to Tremisana Lodge for brunch we enjoy an afternoon game
drive at around 15h00. Afterwards, we transfer to Marc’s Treehouse Lodge,
where accommodation is in tents near the Klaserie River. All tents are
equipped with beds and bedding, soap and towels and electric light and fan.
Dinner is served at Marc’s Camp.
DAY 3 :
Drive to the Orpen Gate of Kruger on a custom-built
open-sided gameviewer and get the opportunity to view game
without glass windows between them and you. You can listen to and smell the
denizens of the African bush. During our drive we have regular stops at picnic
spots, rest camps and places of interest. The Orpen-Satara-Nwanedzi of
Kruger Park boasts open plains and supports large herds of zebra, giraffe and
antelope, which then again attracts numerous lions and other predators. The
zones we visit have the highest concentration of lions throughout Africa!
DAY 4 :
After breakfast we visit the Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre, where injured
and orphaned animals and birds receive medical treatment. There you get the
opportunity to get close to some of the centre’s residents, as, for example,
lions and leopards. At around 15h00 we drive to the Tshukudu Game Lodge
and enjoy another open vehicle game drive in the Big Five Tshukudu Game
Reserve. Accommodation for the night is at Marc’s Camp.
DAY 5 :
Enjoy a walk at sunrise before breakfast is served. Afterwards, we drive up the
Panorama Route to see the scenic splendours including the Three Rondawels
and the Blyde River Canyon. Return to Gauteng will be in the late afternoon.
Airport drop-off can be arranged if requested.
