Day One – Departing Johannesburg
This morning you will be collected from your hotel, heading east to the Mpumalanga region.
After freshening up at your lodge, enter the world-famous Kruger National Park and spend the afternoon game viewing in your closed touring vehicle. The park offers some of the best game viewing and wildlife opportunities in the world – and you will soon appreciate the challenges of managing this unique reserve. Return to the lodge for dinner and overnight.
The day begins with early morning coffee or tea, followed by a thrilling open vehicle game drive (with English speaking game ranger) through the Kruger National Park with pre-packed breakfast. Your guide will endeavour to spoil you with sightings of the Big 5, general game and prolific bird life. Return to the lodge for lunch (for own account) and a short siesta. In the afternoon we will journey once again through the magnificent expanses of the Kruger National Park, unrivalled in its diversity of flora and fauna. Enjoy an afternoon of game viewing in your closed touring vehicle pursuing the Big 5 and other rare and endangered species. Return to the lodge for dinner and overnight.
Enjoy breakfast before setting out to explore the magnificent Panorama Route, one of the most scenic routes in the region, offering glorious views, spectacular landscapes and exquisite waterfalls. Visit majestic sights including God’s Window, the Three Rondavels and Blyde River Canyon – the third largest canyon of its kind in the world, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and the charming village of Graskop, one of the first gold mining camps in the country. Return to the lodge for dinner and overnight.
Enjoy breakfast before starting the return journey to Johannesburg. Arrive in Johannesburg, at O.R. Tambo International Airport, at approximately 14h30, where your tour ends.
