There are three versions of this Kruger National Park bush walk tour, which is the major attraction on this overnight safari. You can see the differences below.
With the third Kruger game walk safari option (safari # 109), you will …
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. A sack lunch is provided today, for you to eat in the vehicle or at a rest camp along the way.
Your safari today will last about four to 4.5 hours, as we travel through the southern part of Kruger, alongside rivers and bushveld, hoping to see as much wildlife as possible. We’ll check you into your guesthouse, a short distance outside Kruger’s gate, where you’ll have a chance to freshen up, before we go back to Kruger.
You’ll now be going for a game walk out in the wild of Kruger – amongst any animals that happen to be on your trail! Please be aware that this is no zoo, and there are no fences or barricades between you and whatever happens to be out there. You will have two rangers with you, each with a rifle, but otherwise it is just you and the wilderness. Your rangers will inform you about the animals and animal spoor that you come across, and explain the significance of the natural phenomena along the trail. People really enjoy the experience of being out in the wilderness, away from civilization, and the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The game walk will last 2.5 to three hours.
When you get back, your guide will take you to a local restaurant of your choosing for dinner (extra cost).
Breakfast is included tomorrow morning, before we go back into Kruger for another safari drive.
Unfortunately, you will need to pay the Kruger entry fee again today. We’ll be meandering through the southern part of Kruger again, heading north. Depending on what time you want to fly out today, your safari can be up to seven hours.
Once we leave Kruger, there is a drive of about 45 minutes to a nearby airport, from where you will fly back to Johannesburg, arriving in the afternoon to evening, depending on what flight time you have selected.
