Days 2 & 3 – Kruger National Park: Enjoy two full days of safari activities including morning and evening game drives exploring Kruger National Park or your private reserve or concession. Meals and overnights at your lodge.

Kruger National Park: The park consists of nearly 8,000 square miles of unrivaled diversity of life forms fused with historical and archaeological sites – this is real Africa. This world-renowned national park offers a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa. Truly the flagship of the South African national parks, Kruger is home to an impressive number of species: 336 trees, 49 fish, 34 amphibians, 114 reptiles, 507 birds and 147 mammals.

Day 4 – Kruger/Depart: Enjoy your last morning on safari. You will be transferred to the local airport for your light aircraft transfer to Johannesburg for your onward flights.

Optional – Sabi Sand Treehouse: Add a night at Chalkley Treehouse, or Kingston Treehouse: Pack an overnight bag with your essentials, while leaving your other belongings back in your room at camp. The treehouses at Sabi Sand are for the hopeless romantic (ideal as a wedding or anniversary treat), the adventurer, the person who needs a complete disconnect and digital detox, or the wildlife enthusiast who prefers the bush au-natural (additional fee). All of the treehouses are securely constructed above the ground, where animals will remain at a safe and comfortable distance. Our field guide will provide a full orientation when he drops guests off before sunset and will remain on call via the radio left behind until it is time to leave the following morning after sunrise and a good cup of coffee!
