Tour Itinerary

Day 1 - 2: The Panorama Route, Kruger, Mpumalanga

Collect your car at Johannesburg Airport and drive directly into Mpumalanga province in the Kruger Surrounds. This area is known for its scenic beauty, wildlife, birds and plant life. A drive along the Panorama Route - a 70 kilometre long circular drive that provides some of the best views of one of Africa's most beautiful lanscapes. Take a peek out of God's Window - a 600 metre high viewpoint on the edge of an escarpment, with rock formations, waterfalls and magnificent views of the Blyde River Canyon (the third largest green canyon in the world). Marvel at the astounding geological features at Bourke's Luck Potholes and explore Pilgrim's Rest, a quaint and beautifully restored mining town which is also a South African national monument.

Day 2 - 5: Kruger National Park

After two days in the Panorama region, travel to the world famous Kruger National Park - the largest, and arguably the most popular, game reserve in South Africa. Home to many different species of animals including the Big-5, Little-5, the birding Big-6 and many species of mammals, the Kruger National Park boasts incredibly diverse fauna and flora. On your Kruger tour you won't need your car as safaris are conducted in open 4x4 safari vehicles with experienced guides. When you are not on safari, you can relax next to the pool or enjoy a refreshing sundowner.

Day 5: Johannesburg

Your three thrilling days in the Kruger Park comes to an end. Return to Johannesburg by car (approximate 6 hour drive).

Please note: Should you prefer to stay within the South African National Parks (Government Kruger lodges) instead of private lodges, this can be arranged. In the South African National Park lodges you will conduct your own safari on a self-drive basis and without a ranger. This is a more affordable alternative private lodges (please see our website section to understand the differences).
