4 Days Kruger Park Safari with Panorama Route in South Africa
This fantastic 4-day safari is our most popular Tour. The safari is conducted in an open vehicle for your sole use. This tour includes two nights inside Kruger National Park, one night at Satara Rest Camp, and one night on the Blyde River Canyon. All covid protocols will be followed, the tour is private, and we will explore vast open areas far from covid hotspots. A safari is a safe, enjoyable, and exciting getaway, and a wild planet has the experience to ensure that your safari is perfect.
Today is the start of your Safari Adventure! Kruger National Park is a wildlife paradise, home to over 140 different mammals, 500 different bird species, and 120 different reptiles.
Your transfer departs from O.R. Tambo airport at 7:45 a.m., and you will meet your private guide in Hoedspruit, a town just outside the park, in time for lunch.
After lunch, we will continue in an open safari vehicle to the Kruger National Park’s gates. We will then take a slow game drive from the gate to Satara camp, where you will be able to see your first Kruger wildlife sightings. Satara camp is located in Kruger’s grasslands and has a lot of grazers. Following the grazers are the predators, and Satara is known as Kruger’s predator capital.
We’ll arrive in Satara or Relevant shortly after sunset, and your chef will prepare dinner while you settle in and relax.
We’ll be spending the entire day in Kruger Park today. We set out at sunrise to explore, taking you to areas with high levels of animal activity and hoping to show you something magical. Kruger National Park is home to all five of Africa’s Big Five: lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos, and buffalo. It also has the most species of large mammals of any African park.
We will take you to a picnic site where we will serve breakfast with a view, and then we will slowly return to camp so you can relax and enjoy the camp facilities. We will then serve lunch at camp before embarking on an exciting afternoon drive.
We’ll keep looking for Kruger wildlife and return to camp at sunset. Tonight, we’ll cook everything over an open fire, and you’ll dine under the stars in our bush restaurant. Following dinner, you will embark on a Kruger night drive. Many big cats, as well as hyenas, porcupines, honey badgers, and other animals, are active at this time.
After breakfast, we pack our belongings and proceed to the Kruger National Park’s exit gates. We begin by traveling along the Drakensberg escarpment before beginning to ascend it. Our first stop of the day will be at one of the Blyde River Canyon viewpoints that overlook the Lowveld from the Highveld. We’ll get a bird’s eye view of the Lowveld we’ve been exploring for the past few days before heading to “Pilgrims Rest,” a very old mining town.
Pilgrims Rest has been designated a World Heritage Site due to its cultural significance, and the town appears to be frozen in time. From here, we travel to Graskop, a small town where we will have our own expenses lunch. After lunch, we’ll go to God’s Window, which has such a beautiful view that it’s thought to be God’s window to see the earth. We get a clear view of the earth from the clouds, and the view is simply breathtaking!
Tonight, we’ll sleep in a resort at the Blyde River Canyon and take advantage of the amenities on offer.
This morning, we’ll take you on a short hike along the Blyde River Canyon’s slopes, through some amazing forests teeming with the most beautiful birds. We will then have breakfast before packing up and meeting the transfer back to Johannesburg. We’ll meet the transfer around 11 a.m., and you’ll arrive in Johannesburg around 5 p.m.
