Kruger Lodge Experience (4 Days)

No holiday to South Africa is complete without a safari - a chance to spot the Big Five and to wander the vast open savanna. Heed the call of the Kruger and embark on a magical journey into this vast, game-filled national park. Search for lions, leopards, buffaloes, rhinos and elephants during the day and relax in a comfortable lodge at night. This action-packed tour is the perfect way to see the spectacular Kruger National Park without sacrificing creature comforts.

Itinarary 

Day 1 Johannesburg/Greater Kruger National Park

  • Early morning on Day 1 (around 5am) we depart Johannesburg, the 'City of Gold' and head off on an adventure of a lifetime. A truly unique African experience unfolds as we enter the Greater Kruger National Park ecosystem arriving at our Lodge in time for lunch (570 km, approx 7-8 hours travel time including stops along the way).
  • After some time to settle in, head off on a late afternoon/evening Big Five game drive in open 4x4 vehicles in a private game reserve. Sundowner drinks are enjoyed at one of the waterholes before continuing our game drive into the night.
  • After an exciting evening, return to the lodge to enjoy a traditional South African meal around a log fire.
  • Included Activities: Big 5 game drive
  • Accommodation: Lodge. Located in the greater Kruger, our accommodation is wonderfully intimate, with just 14 twin-share rooms. Rooms are constructed from local materials and are tastefully decorated and comfortably appointed. The lodge also offers a cosy bar, perfect for chatting with the other guests over a drink or two. There is also a crystal-clear swimming pool for a refreshing post-safari swim. However we think the quality which makes our lodge stand out from the rest is the friendliness and helpfulness of our team. They are committed to making your stay memorable!
