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.
You are picked up from your hotel in Gauteng or Johannesburg
Airport and travel to the subtropical Lowveld via the Highveld grasslands. We
bring you to Tremisana Game Lodge in the Balule section of the Kruger
National Park, where you will have time to unwind at the bar, enjoy a
refreshing dip in our pool and relax in the beautiful tropical gardens.
Afterwards, you get your first opportunity to experience
the varied fauna and flora of Africa and watch the magnificent African sunset
on a 3h sunset drive, before we use spotlights to locate nocturnal animals in
the darkness. For dinner we provide an unforgettable bush braai in the Marula
Tree Boma deep in the African bush. After dinner the night drive continues.
You spend the night in comfortable en suite chalet at Tremisana Lodge.
DAY 2 :
We start the day with a 4h bush walk as soon as sun rises, starting at a
remote spot. A qualified ranger guides you through the bush at a pace you can
handle and we experience the thrill of following big animals together. Adrenalin
surges will come to their expense, even if your ranger is adequately armed.
Brunch is served at Tremisana Lodge at 13h30. At around 14h30 we
departure for an afternoon game drive, before then transferring to Marc’s
Treehouse Lodge to spend the night in romantic and fascinating treehouses.
Dinner is served in the open Boma.
DAY 3 :
We drive to the Orpen Gate of Kruger on a custombuilt
open-sided gameviewer. There you get the chance to view
game without intervening glass windows and listen to and smell the denizens
of the bush. During the drive we have regular stops at picnic spots, restcamps
and places of interest. The Orpen-Satara-Nwanedzi region’s open plains
attract large herds of zebra, giraffe and antelope, that, in turn, attract many
predators. In fact, this zone has the highest concentration of lions throughout
DAY 4 :
After breakfast, we travel to the Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre, where
injured and orphaned animals and birds are receive medical treatment. There
you have the opportunity to get very close to some of the centre’s residents,
including lions and leopards. After lunch we drive to Tremisana, before
heading towards the Big Five Tshukudu Game Reserve around 15h00 for high
tea. We continue the day with an open vehicle game drive in Kruger’s Big Five
reserve. In the evening you return to Marc’s Treehouse Lodge for dinner and
stay there overnight.
DAY 5 :
Start the day with a sunrise walk. After breakfast, we drive up the Panorama
Route to see the scenic splendours including the Three Rondawels and the
Blyde River Canyon. You return to Gauteng in the late afternoon. Airport drop-off
can be arranged.
