Private Game Reserve Safari
Explore the wonder and beauty of the greater Kruger National Park area in this luxury experience. In this package, you will stay in one of the greater Kruger area private game reserves. All lodge accommodations in the greater Kruger area are luxury accommodations, and will vary slightly from one lodge to the next. Which lodge you will stay at depends upon availability at the time of booking. We will give you full details and the exact lodge name before confirming your reservations.
Johannesburg to private game reserve
You will be picked up in Johannesburg between 6:30 - 8:00AM and begin the journey to the greater Kruger National Park area. We will stop for lunch along the way (at your own expense). After reaching the lodge in the afternoon, you will have ample time to settle in. We will take our first game drive this afternoon in an open air vehicle for 3-4 hours. Weather permitting, we will enjoy dinner outdoors, discussing today's experience with our group.
All full days at the private game reserve
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Note: The 2 day safari will not experience a full day at the private game reserve.
The private game reserves offer an advantage over other parks: the animals are usually more habituated to humans, meaning that you will get to see them at a closer distance than usual! Most lodges also offer morning breakfast game walks, which you are free to join. The rest of the morning is spent at leisure, enjoying the surroundings or the pool. Lunch is served around 2PM. The afternoon game drive will extend into the evening, allowing you to perhaps see some of the nocturnal animals of the region.
Dinner will again be served al fresco, weather permitting. You will have the chance to relax, unwind, and compare notes with your fellow travelers.
Return to Johannesburg via Panorama Route
Another early morning wake up will ensure that we again see as many animals as possible on the morning drive. Breakfast will be served upon returning to the lodge. Then, we will slowly journey back to Johannesburg, traveling along some scenic countryside.
Along the way, visit several attractions that are part of the Panorama Route, including Blyde River Canyon (third largest canyon in the world) which includes the scenic points of the Three Rondavels, Lisbon Waterfalls and God's Window, a scenic viewpoint overlooking the Lowveld from a perfect vantagepoint.
There will be a break for lunch, at your own expense. Because the journey back to Johannesburg will take at least 6 hours, you are strongly advised to spend the night in Johannesburg before going onto your next destination. If you must travel on the same day, we recommend not scheduling domestic flights any earlier than 7:00PM, and international flights not earlier than 8:00PM.
