Relish three days of Big Five game drives around Berg-en-Dal, one of the most southerly rest camps of the Kruger Park.
Guests are met on arrival at O R Tambo International or any other location of their choice in either Johannesburg or Pretoria. The Kruger Park safari makes its way via Nelspruit to the Malelane Gate. Good fortune may favor you during your afternoon game drive, as sightings of the Big Five are frequent in this world-renowned wilderness arena.
Your experienced guide will share their knowledge of the Kruger Park with you during the morning and afternoon safari drives. The Big Five are the most widely known and recognized animals in the Kruger Park which, along with the hippo and crocodile, make up the ‘Dangerous 7'. Both of these species occur in great numbers in and along the watercourses of the Kruger National Park. You are almost certain to spot a crocodile basking in the sun on a riverbank or a pod of hippo wallowing in a dam, spurting plumes of water from their nostrils.
The wealth of bird species with which the Kruger Park is blessed should not be overlooked when enjoying the morning guided safari game drive conducted on this day. The ‘birding big six’ are, in many ways, as majestic as the Big Five. They consist of the Martial eagle, Kori bustard, Ground hornbill, Pel's fishing owl, Lapped-faced vulture and Saddle-billed stork. A multitude of other bird species may also be spotted, particularly along the banks of the various rivers that run through the Kruger Park. Following the morning game drive, guests travel back to Johannesburg along the national highway.
