Day 1 : Kruger National Park

Guests are met at the airport in Johannesburg from where the Kruger Park & Private Lodge Safari travels overland, first to the town of Nelspruit, which is regarded as the gateway to South Africa’s Lowveld region, and then on to the Paul Kruger Gate. Upon entering the Kruger National Park, your safari begins as the first animals should be spotted within a minute or two. From Kruger Gate, the safari heads for Skukuza where guests are assisted with check-in. Some time is then allotted for relaxation before embarking on a late afternoon game drive in the area immediately surrounding Skukuza.

Day 2 : Kruger National Park

The day’s game drives are conducted in the southern section of the Kruger National Park. ¬†The area is characterized by wooded savanna and is well-watered by both the Sabie and Sand river systems. The area offers exceptional lion and leopard sighting opportunities, as both these predators occur in significant numbers in this part of the Kruger National Park. There is, of course, a wealth of other mammal and bird species that can be seen while on safari in the area.

Breakfast & Dinner
Day 3 : Sabi Sand

A last morning spent in the company of your African Sky guide is followed by a transfer to the Sabi Sand Private Reserve where the next two nights will be devoted to experiencing a private lodge safari in the Greater Kruger National Park. After being assisted with check-in at the lodge, guests may enjoy some time for relaxation before embarking on an open 4x4 safari conducted during the late afternoon.
