Get back to nature and track down the Big Five of the African bush on a 3-day safari to Kruger National Park. See spectacular African wildlife in their native habitat, and feel what it is like to get close to a pride of lion.
What to Expect
Steeped in legend and history, the iconic Kruger National Park is waiting to greet you on this thrilling 3-day safari adventure in its vast landscape. During the tour you will take afternoon and evening game drives, tracking the wildlife when it is at its most active. Stay in 3-star safari lodging and enjoy delicious bush dinners and sundowners.
Your base for the trip is Hippo Hollow, nestled on the banks of the Sable River, adding an “Out of Africa” feel to your journey. You will take unforgettable bush walks and 4WD game drives, and might even see hippos grazing from the comfort of your lodge.
Transfer from Johannesburg Airport to the Kruger Park, one of the largest game reserves in Africa. Covering a vast 7,500 square miles, the Kruger is home to a huge variety of wildlife, from the African wild dog to the blue wildebeest, not forgetting all of the legendary Big Five. After you have settled into your accommodation, your safari ranger will take you on an elephant encounter as the heat of the day begins to recede. Head back to your lodge after sundown for dinner.
Rise early for breakfast. Today you will take a full-day game drive in specially modified open vehicles for maximum viewing opportunities. The Kruger Park is an easy 10-minute drive from Hippo Hollow, so you will soon be searching the horizon for some of the 500 species of bird that call the Kruger home. Look out for giraffes, zebras, elephants and kudu. If you are lucky, you might even come across a pride of curious lions. Return to the lodge at the end of the day for another superb bush dinner.
Following breakfast, you are free to enjoy Hippo Hollow’s facilities at leisure, before the midday transfer back to Johannesburg. Leave with lasting memories of the scents, sounds, and sights of the African wilderness.
