DAY 1:6

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.
