3 DAY KRUGER PARK: SABI SANDS COMBO SAFARI
Day 1: Gauteng – Kruger Park
We depart from Johannesburg between 06h30 – 08h00 to allow for various collection points. Our route takes us through the wide open spaces of the Highveld, down the escarpment and through the scenic Lowveld area. We stop for lunch en-route (own expense) and reach the Kruger National Park and Skukuza Rest Camp in the afternoon.
After settling in to our accommodations, we head out on our first game drive! We conduct all our game drives in specially adapted 4x4 open game drive vehicles to allow our guests the best possible vantage point. On our return, we have some time to visit the Park’s shop, go for a walk & just familiarising ourselves with our surroundings.
Dinner is a two course meal, served al fresco at our private camp. Wine is served with dinner but guests are welcome to bring along additional / alternative drinks which can be purchased at the shop.
Day 2: Kruger Park – Sabi Sand Game Reserve
Safaris are all about early mornings, getting out there and seeing animals! After an early wake-up call (the time varies according to the seasons and park gate opening times) we have tea or coffee & rusks (dried biscuits to be dunked in your coffee or tea). Our morning safari will take approximately 3 hours. Your guide has an intimate knowledge of the park, which contributes a great deal towards brilliant sightings!
Directly after breakfast at our camp, we head to the world renowned Sabi Sand Game Reserve in our closed, air conditioned tour vehicle. We arrive in time for lunch and have some time to freshen up before departing on your afternoon game drive in one of the lodge’s open game drive vehicles. This drive generally takes about 4 hours and tends to extend into the early evening. The Sabi Sand is particularly famous for its brilliant sightings of leopard. Although we cannot guarantee these sightings, your chances of seeing these magnificent animals are very good!
Dinner is served on your return under the stars (weather permitting). The day ends with discussions around the open fire about what you saw today and the plans for tomorrow.
Breakfast, Lunch & dinner included
Day 3: Sabi Sand – Panorama Route – Johannesburg
An early wake-up call and coffee sees you heading back into the bush in the hope of seeing more of Africa’s spectacular wildlife.
Upon your return breakfast is served. Directly after breakfast we begin our journey back to Johannesburg. The final highlight of our safari is exploring the renowned Panorama Route! Attractions visited include the Blyde River Canyon, Three Rondavels, Lisbon Waterfalls and God´s Window. We stop en-route for lunch (own expense).
The drive back to Johannesburg takes at least 6 hours and guests are advised to sleep over in Johannesburg on this night

The child policies vary from lodge to lodge. Some lodges do not accept children under 12 at all, while others gladly accept children but do not allow younger children on the open game drive vehicles for safety reasons. These lodges offer babysitting services at a nominal extra charge. Please be sure to enquire about this before making your reservation.
Guests flying out of OR Tambo Airport on the last day are reminded to not book any flights earlier than 19h00 (domestic) or 20h00 (international) in order to give us enough time to get you to the airport. We recommend that you rather stay over in Johannesburg if possible. Since we cannot guarantee our arrival time in Johannesburg on the last day we will not be held responsible for re-imbursements of flight tickets, should we arrive later than expected. Guests flying out of Nelspruit on the last day may, depending on their flight details, not have enough time to see the Panorama Route. Private transfers for guests with early flights can be arranged in advance at an extra charge.
