2 Night Kruger Tented Safari
“Remember the quality of your Safari has EVERYTHING to do with the quality of the guide who leads your experience…”
Kruger Tented Safari Tour Overview:
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.
What to expect on your Kruger Tented Safari Tour:
Embark on an authentic Tented Safari in the Kruger National Park. Enjoy daily game drives in an Open Safari Vehicle, delicious meals, bushveld picnics and comfortable tented accommodation. From game viewing to stargazing, this “Journey through Kruger” captures the unique highlights of life in the Kruger.
Our Kruger Park Safaris take place in specially modified open vehicles which provide you with excellent game viewing opportunities and the finest, unimpeded vantage points for photography and bird watching. Our qualified, experienced guides enhance the experience with their deep understanding of the bush as well as the movement and identification of animals and birds.
Transfer from KMIA (Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport Nelspruit) to Kruger. (Dinner included)
Arrive at Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport OR in Nelspruit (Mbombela) town by shuttle bus by 13h00. Your Open Safari Vehicle will be waiting to take you on your "Journey through Kruger". As soon as you enter the Kruger National Park your afternoon Safari begins with a search for the elusive "Big 5". Stop for lunch (for own account) at one of the numerous Rest Camps/Picnic Spots situated inside the Kruger National Park with fully stocked shops, cafeterias and restaurants to cater for all diets.
After lunch we'll set off again in the custom built Open Safari Vehicles which feature tiered seating for optimal game viewing and photo opportunities. Check into your tented camp to freshen up before joining your guide for dinner followed by star-gazing (weather permitting). On a clear night there is a galaxy of stars waiting to amaze you. Snuggle up in your cozy bed and fall asleep listening to the syphony of animals as they communicate during the night...this is the way to feel at one with nature!
Full-day Open Vehicle Safari in the Kruger National Park. (Brunch & Dinner included)
You will be up early this morning. Depending on the time of the year it can be as early as 04h30. The earlier you get going, the better your chances of seeing animals, especially the big cats. However, remember that this is a huge wilderness area and it takes time to find animals.
At about 10h30 you’ll stop for brunch at one of the Rest Camps in the Kruger Park or at a remote picnic spot. It’s difficult to spot animals around midday as this is when they take a siesta, so it is the perfect time for humans to enjoy a siesta too. Cool off at the swimming pool before heading out on an afternoon game drive. A delicious dinner awaits you around the fire with your guide to discuss the day’s sightings. Hopefully you’ll also hear the distant roar of a lion or the call of a hyena.
Half-day Open Vehicle Safari in the Kruger National Park. (Brunch included)
Expect another early morning. Today will be your last opportunity to enjoy game viewing with your guide in search of animals both big and small. It will also be your final brunch at about 10h30 before you leave the Kruger in time to meet your transfer or flight.

Chacma baboons are numerous in the Kruger National Park and live in huge troops numbering up to 200 animals (typically between 30-40). Troops consist of a family group of males, females and their young. Young baboons depend on their mothers for transportation, initially the little “pink foots” cling to the underside of the mother. At around 3 months of age they start riding “jockey style” on mommy’s back (leaning against the tail for support) as seen in this footage...
There are approximately 10000 Giraffes in the Kruger National Park. They are gregarious and live in nonterritorial loose groups of up to 20 at a time, a behaviour that apparently allows for increased vigilance against predators. They have excellent eyesight, and when one giraffe notices approaching danger it will keep staring until the others look in that direction too. Giraffes live up to 26 years in the wild and slightly longer in captivity.
