Kruger Park Safari: Guided Full Day Tour in specially modified Open Safari Vehicle
“Remember the quality of your experience has EVERYTHING to do with the quality of the guide who leads your experience…”
The world-renowned Kruger National Park offers a wildlife experience second to none. At nearly 2 million hectares, it is the largest game reserve in South Africa, stretching 350km along the Mozambican border and is, on average, 60km wide. It is unrivalled in its diversity of species and is a recognized leader in environmental management techniques and policies.
Kruger is one of the premier game-watching destinations in the world. Approximately 145 mammal species occur in the park. It is possible to see all the classical African big game, including elephant, black and white rhino, hippopotamus, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, warthog and many antelope species. Large carnivores include lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and spotted hyena.
A Full Day Game Drive into the world famous Kruger National Park awaits! Anything to do with the word “game” whilst on a safari; like game drives or looking for game, all refers to wild animals in safari context. The guides will not only attempt to find the elusive "Big 5", but will also continuously point out interesting things throughout the Safari and share their knowledge throughout the day.
A typical Full Day Kruger National Park Safari Tour starts just before dawn. You will be collected from your hotel between 05h00 and 06h00 (seasonal) from where you will travel to the nearest Kruger entrance gate where your guide will pay the Kruger Daily Conservation Fees (included) and obtain the required vehicle entry permit.
The morning game drive normally lasts 3 Hours, after which a +/- 45 minute breakfast stop (own account) is made at either one of Krugers' rest camps or picnic spots where clean ablution facilities are available. You will be able to purchase food and drinks (credit card widely accepted), or make use of the picnic facilities to enjoy your packed breakfast provided by your hotel. Another 3 Hour game drive through a different area will take you up to lunchtime, lunch is for own account and the guide will break for about 1 hour before continuing.
Full day Kruger Safaris end around 16h00 back at the pick up location.
