Overnight Kruger Park air safari option 1

Home > Overnight Tours > Overnight Kruger Park air safari option 1


  • Fly to and from Kruger!
  • Overnight tour!
  • Spend the night inside Kruger National Park!
  • Actually land and take off inside Kruger!
  • Optional open air game ride!


There are two versions of this Kruger National Park overnight safari. The difference between them is that on this one you have the convenience of both flying into and out of an airport inside Kruger. With the other one (safari #115), you fly into an airport inside the park but fly out of an airport that is 45 minutes away from Kruger. The advantage of the second one is that you spend a lot more time on safari.

Today you’ll fly into a small airport that is actually inside Kruger National Park (flight included in the tour price)! The plane departs Johannesburg mid morning, and you’ll land in Kruger in less than an hour. Your guide will be waiting for you when you arrive, and literally just a few minutes later, you will be on safari!
Please note that the entry fee to Kruger is excluded and will need to be paid when you land.

You’ll be touring Kruger in an SUV or sedan, but you do have the option of upgrading to an open air game vehicle. This is more expensive, but is the best way of seeing wildlife. You can select this option when you check out. Depending on the time of the year, you will spend about 5.5 hours on safari today. A sack lunch is provided, for you to eat in the vehicle or when we get to the camp.

We will then check you into your rondavel at the rest camp. A rondavel is a typical South African rest camp dwelling, with a single room and a thatch roof. All the lodging inside the rest camp is very basic, although all units are air conditioned, and all have a bathroom with a private shower, toilet and handbasin inside. The beds are all single beds. There are no larger beds available.

This evening you have the option of taking a ranger led, game viewing vehicle safari, around the time of sunset (extra cost). Because of the time that the rest camp gates close, the only opportunity that guests have to be in Kruger after sunset is on one of these official park service safaris. Either before you leave or when you get back, you’ll be on your own for dinner (extra cost), at a delightful restaurant perched above a river.

Tomorrow morning you’ll have the opportunity to eat breakfast (extra cost), or grab a take-out (extra cost), before we hit the road, for another safari. The length of this will depend on what time you can wake up, as well as whether you want to have breakfast (extra cost) before or after the safari. Having said that, the safari is likely to be about five hours.

We’ll tour through the southern part of Kruger, doing our best to find you as many animals as possible, before dropping you back at the airport inside Kruger, for the short flight back to Johannesburg. You’ll arrive back in the late afternoon.
