The great infrastructure in the Kruger National Park makes it ideal for a self-drive safari experience.
Clients are met upon arrival at O R Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg by a representative of African Sky Safaris & Tours, who will present them with their Kruger Park self-drive safari itinerary, a map book of South Africa and a GPS. At this time, clients are also presented with accommodation and other relevant vouchers which they will require on their self-drive safari. Clients are then assisted with obtaining their rental vehicle before embarking on their Kruger Park self-drive safari.
You'll enjoy three nights and four days exploring the southern reaches of the park from a base at Skukuza Rest Camp, the largest of the park camps. Skukuza hosts some of the best restaurants in the park, along with a fascinating museum documenting the park's human and natural history. The camp also overlooks the prolific Sabie River, one of Kruger's most significant perennial waterways.
The Sabie River will form the backdrop of your self-drive game drives, as the route between Skukuza and Lower Sabie Rest Camp is very generous in terms of game viewing. Leopards love the large, riverine trees, and all walks of wildlife will wander down to the water's edge for a drink. The river itself teems with wildlife, including hippos, crocodiles, fish, numerous waterbirds and even Cape clawless otter.
On an evening of your choice, you will accompany a park ranger on a night drive in an open-air 4x4 vehicle. This will allow potential encounters with nocturnal animals like genets and bush babies, or hyenas and hippos. The most thrilling sighting is typically lions or a leopard on a kill, as these big cats often prefer to hunt under the cover of darkness when their prey is most vulnerable.
