Itinerary

Experience South Africa's best known National Park

Travel from Johannesburg through Mpumalanga's picturesque Panorama route to see views over the magnificent Blyde River Canyon. The highlight of this overland tour is undoubtedly the famed Kruger National Park with its wide variety of animals. Enjoy wildlife viewing in South Africa's best known National park.

This tour can be extended to Durban or Cape Town - ask us how!


Day 1. Johannesburg to Kruger National Park Highlights. Blyde River Canyon, South Africa. Accommodation. Hotel Numbi.

We start this tour leaving South Africa's largest city Johannesburg and make our way across majestic mountains to the Panorama Route where we can view the breathtaking Blyde River Canyon. Travelling on, we arrive at Hazyview, a small town bordering the Kruger National Park and to our accommodation for the next few nights. 4 images Blyde River Canyon, South Africa 3 images Hotel Numbi

Day 2. Kruger National Park Highlights. Kruger National Park, South Africa. Accommodation. Hotel Numbi.

Rising early, we board the open 4x4 game driver vehicles with our resident guide and head to the Kruger National Park. Home to over 505 species of birds and 148 species of mammals (and many reptiles), we head into the bushveld and begin our safari.

The day is spent enthusiastically seeking out not only the Big Five - Lion, Rhino, Elephant, Buffalo and Leaopard; but also the countless other animals. See the majestic giraffe towering over the flat-topped Acacia trees and the dazzling zebras posing among the tall grasses. We pause in the heat of the afternoon and take a break at one of the rest camps where the local info centre will also have information on sightings in the area.

In the late afternoon, we return to our comfortable accommodation and enjoy a lovely cooked dinner around the open fire. 6 images Kruger National Park, South Africa 3 images Hotel Numbi

Day 3. Kruger National Park Accommodation. Hotel Numbi.

Kruger has a number of different plant biomes which span from north to south and give rise to a variety of habitats for its inhabitants. For this reason there is such a great variety of birds and animals which we seek out again today.

After breakfast, we re-enter the park for our second day's game driving experience. With a camera and binoculars at hand, we drive in our open 4x4 safari vehicles traversing the terrain in search of any wildlife we may have missed the day before. 3 images Hotel Numbi

Day 4. Hazyview to Johannesburg Highlights. Johannesburg City .

Today, we make our way back to Johannesburg where our tour ends in the late afternoon.

Additional Info

PRE TOUR ACCOMMODATION:
This tour departs Johannesburg early on day 1; we strongly recommend therefore that you plan to arrive the day before departure to overcome any jet-lag and acclimatise to Africa. We would be happy to book pre-tour accommodation for you – please call or email us (or speak to your agent) with your arrival details and accommodation requirements. However please book early to avoid disappointment and the risk of having to find more expensive (or less convenient) lodgings.

If time allows, we also suggest planning a night or two extra (after your tour) to make the most of Johannesburg and the surrounding area.

ACTIVITIES & EXCURSIONS:
These are optional activities that are booked during your holiday and paid directly to the provider while on tour. These options offer a variety of experiences and allow you the freedom to decide what activities you would like to do.

GAME PARK VISITS:
In order to maximise the quality of game driving and to comply with local authority rulings, some of our National Park visits and game viewing is carried out using services provided by local African ground handlers. As well as enhancing our experience using local guides and smaller vehicles it also allows us to contribute at a ‘grassroots’ level to local economies from which local people benefit.

TOUR STYLE:
This is a participation tour and your help will be needed in assisting with the various day to day duties, such as shopping, cooking and keeping the truck tidy (usually on a rota basis). But don’t worry it’s not all hard work and it’s a great way to meet the local people and get to know your fellow travellers. Your contribution benefits the success of the tour - most people find the greater their involvement, the greater their enjoyment of the whole trip.
