Itinerary

Day 1 - Introduction To The Wild

You will be collected by one of our friendly guides, meeting and setting off with fellow

travellers towards a private game lodge situated in a Big Five Game Reserve (part of the

Greater Kruger). After checking in, you may rest in your air-conditioned en suite chalet,

have a quick refreshing dip in the pool, unwind at the bar or relax in the beautiful gardens.

At around 17h00 we board the open Landcruiser for an exciting Big 5 Sunset Game Drive.

Watch the magnificent African sunset, and after darkness falls, rangers use powerful spot

lights to locate animals. The light from the spotlight is reflected by the tapetum behind the animal’s retina – so what one sees first is the “eyes” of the  animal. This first introduction to

the wild will continue with a candle-lit dinner, served in the middle of the African bush.

While enjoying the magical atmosphere of the Bush Boma, you’ll taste one of South Africa's favourite dishes: the famous Braai! You’ll then be taken back to your chalet for the night.

Accommodation: En suite air-conditioned chalet at a private game Lodge. The chalets have a tea/coffee station and are supplied with shampoos and insect repellant.
Included meals: Dinner

Day 2 - Bush Walk and Game Drive

Awaken at sunrise for an exhilarating day of unforgettable bush life. Your guide will drive you to a remote part of a Big 5 Game Reserve, where you will enjoy a 4h Bush Walk. Your experienced guide will lead you through the bush. We usually walk along the banks of the Olifants River where abundant bird life is often encountered. Sightings of elephant, hippo and crocodile are common. The thrill of following Africa’s large animals until you can take a photo will remain with you forever. Adrenalin surges will be acute, notwithstanding the presence of your armed ranger. You’ll then return to your lodge for a brunch and a lunch a bit later. We’ll then go on an afternoon game drive around 15:00 (open vehicle) looking forward to seeking out the infamous Big Five (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant, buffalo). Upon your return, you’ll be transferred to your new private reserve where dinner will be served. You’ll overnight here in an en suite chalet. 

Accommodation: En suite chalet on a private game reserve. The chalet has overhead fan, electric lights and power points and all the comfortable beds are covered by mosquito nets.
Included meals: Brunch, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3 - Kruger National Park

After breakfast, we head towards the Kruger National Park on the open-sided Game Viewer
vehicle and enter the park at Orpen Gate. The added elevation and absence of windows allow for excellent viewing and photographic opportunities. The day will be spent leisurely driving, and eagerly seeking out whatever game comes our way. Your qualified guide will show you various animals, large and small, that frequent this outstanding wildlife paradise and will stop as often as desired for prime photo opportunities or to answer any questions.
The zone of Kruger you visit has the highest percentage population of giraffe, zebra,
wildebeest and impala that attract numerous lions and other predators. Our route will take us to our lunch spot at a rest camp where you’ll be able to sit at a restaurant and/or buy snacks and refreshments at own costs. Lunch also offers a welcome opportunity to stretch your legs and enjoy a little shopping. The rest of the afternoon is spent trying to find those animals that have eluded us during the morning drive. We then make our way back to our private camp where dinner will be served and where you’ll be able to reflect and share your experiences of the last few days with fellow travellers.

Accommodation: En suite chalet on a private game reserve. The chalet has overhead fan, electric lights and power points and all the comfortable beds are covered by mosquito nets.
Included meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 4 - Kruger National Park

After a hearty breakfast, enjoy another full day game-drive, in an open Game Viewer, in the
Kruger National Park. This Private Reserve is home to numerous wild animals and chances of finding the Big Five in this enclosed reserve are very high. Buy your lunch and stretch your legs at a rest stop on our route before we continue on our adventure. There will be numerous wildlife sightings and excellent photographic opportunities in this lovely,
quieter reserve. The reserve covers a large range of vegetation types, from riverine forest of big, old trees, to open plains providing rich habitats for the healthy animal and bird populations. After watching the sun go down, we make our way back to camp on the lookout for nocturnal creatures as  we drive. Dinner will be served on arrival.

Accommodation: En suite chalet on a private game reserve. The chalet has overhead fan, electric lights and power points and all the comfortable beds are covered by mosquito nets.
Included meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 5 - Return Through Blyde River Canyon

Before leaving the Wild, you’ll enjoy an early morning Bush Walk in another part of the Game Reserve accompanied by an armed ranger. You will be shown various interesting details of the bush, including insects, spoor and scats. You have an excellent chance of encountering Buffalo, Nyala and other game on foot. After breakfast, we head towards a well-known touring spot: "The Three Rondavels", part of the Blyde River Canyon, which
is the third largest canyon in the world. Thereafter we continue on our journey back to Gauteng where we should drop you by your accommodation or airport at around 17:00.

Included meals: Breakfast
