What to Expect

Take a walk on the wild side! On this 4-day tour, you get the best of both worlds - wildlife spotting and an epic adventure! Cruising in a custom designed adventure truck that provides excellent photo opportunities from a high vantage point, you'll be sure to see some of Africa's most iconic animals.  You'll also travel in an open-topped safari vehicle specifically designed for Kruger game viewing. Perfect! 
There'll be early morning game walks, evening game drives and before returning back to Johannesburg, you'll visit the Panorama Route! Here you'll see God's Window, Bourke's Luck Potholes and the Three Rondavels - all part of the World Heritage Blyde River Canyon.

You have the choice between accommodated (permanent tent with ensuite) or camping style accommodation.
Day 1: Johannesburg to Kruger National Park (dinner) 
Please note that during the next few days (while we are visiting Kruger National Park), the order of activities could change without prior notice and a degree of flexibility is needed.  This is to allow for maximum game viewing opportunities and experiences.

Accommodated: Two per Permanent Tent with En-suite Bathroom
Camping: Campsite with Shared Bathroom

Leaving the city of Johannesburg behind us we make our way east through the coalfields of Mpumalanga. Our journey today follows in the footsteps of the old trade routes to the Lowveld and the Kruger National Park. We set up camp at our base for the next three nights and enjoy a lovely sundowner drive.

Day 2: Kruger National Park (breakfast, dinner)
Accommodated: Two per Permanent Tent with En-suite Bathroom
Camping: Campsite with Shared Bathroom

This morning we enter the Kruger National Park for a full day of game viewing. You'll have the opportunity to explore the park in open game viewing vehicles! You'll gain access to areas trucks can’t always go, and see some amazing sights along the way.

Day 3: Kruger National Park – Panorama Route (breakfast, dinner)
Accommodated: Two per Permanent Tent with En-suite Bathroom
Camping: Campsite with Shared Bathroom

As is customary when on safari, we rise early this morning to enjoy a guided bush walk. Being in the bush on foot offers a unique opportunity to appreciate the smaller details of this great wilderness area.  After our walk, we exit the park and journey along the scenic Panorama Route where we will visit God’s Window, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and the Three Rondavels.
These highlights are all part of the World Heritage Blyde River Canyon- the third largest canyon in the world! As you follow the winding path, you have to stop and stare in wonder at the astonishing panoramic views below, as the sheer edges of the cliff drop down 800m into the river below.

We return to camp in the evening to enjoy a lovely local dinner and dance.
Day 4: Kruger National Park to Johannesburg (breakfast)
Please organise your own accommodationtonight.
We enjoy our last drive through the park before setting off to Belvedere Estate.

We arrive at Belvedere Estate in the late afternoon and all travelers are invited to join us for a traditional meal tonight. This can be booked with your guide on the day before arrival. Many great tales are shared and tonight presents an opportunity to join fellow travelers in celebrating the many wonders of African travel.
