An ideal day trip for groups

This personalised Kruger Park safari sets out at day break. Your group will be collected or met by prior arrangement at a predetermined location, either your hotel, our hospitality centre or a Kruger Park gate. Personal attention from our African safari guides will ensure that all your individual guest requirements are catered for. After a morning's exciting game viewing, you will be able to stop and purchase breakfast at a selected picnic spot or rest camp.The full day safari in Kruger National Park is both informative and educational, affording guests the opportunity of not just the wild life aspect of a safari, but cultural interaction as well. This is surely a unique Kruger Park experience. In the afternoon a stop is made at a lookout point, which allows everyone to stretch their legs and to enjoy the magnificent views. You will be able to purchase lunch from one of the shops.

Your guides will try their utmost to find wildlife and they are in constant radio contact with other vehicles to ensure that you don't miss the best sightings while on your Kruger Park safari. The only difference from our usual safari activities is that you do not get to stay for dinner and sleep over, so your safari ends in the late afternoon, when we exit the gates at closing time.
