If you’re particularly short on time, but you don’t want to miss out on a visit to the Kruger, this 4-day guided safari offers just enough of an experience to really understand why it holds the title as the top game-viewing destination in the country.
Greater Kruger is a must for those looking to experience the best of the country’s wildlife, however, on this guided tour you will also witness the majesty of the Panorama route as you drive from the city of Johannesburg (with a few of our favourite small towns in between).
Your guide will let you in on this often overlooked hotspot, filled to the brim with scenic mountain vistas, valleys, and waterfalls. The beauty of this trip is that you can spend each day fully-engrossed in what’s around you. The daily itinerary is pre-planned, with two daily meals, accommodation, park fees, and transport all included.
This affordable guided Kruger Park safari kicks off in the city of Johannesburg. You’ll be picked up at the airport or your nearby Johannesburg hotel before hitting the South African roads. Expect a decent amount of driving and an early start, but it’ll be well worth it once you get going.
Today’s highlight comprises of an interactive tour of the Panorama Route, which includes a stop at one of the most incredible lookout points in the country ― God’s Window. With a name like that, you know you’re in for a real treat.
After a leisurely stop in the oh-so-charming little town of Graskop, you’ll arrive at your comfortable Hazyview accommodation in the late afternoon. After dinner, you will have some leisure time before your next day’s guided Kruger safari.
Over the next two days, the itinerary will focus on the mother of all wildlife areas: the Kruger National Park. Each morning will kick off with a full-day immersive game drives led by an experienced ranger-guide who knows the park like the back of his hand.
He’ll know exactly where to take you to catch a glimpse of the ‘locals’ ― prides of lion, giraffe, buffalo, zebra, warthog, various species of antelope and plenty of birds. Sightings are always down to luck, but with your Ranger on hand to lead you through the Kruger, keep your eyes and ears peeled and your camera close at hand. Breakfasts and dinners will be included each day, with lunch stops at various rest-camps.
After a jam-packed experience in the Kruger, it’s time to head back to Johannesburg via one last morning safari in the Kruger National Park. A breakfast pack is included, but if you get peckish, there will be just enough breaks at petrol stations to keep your snack supply well-stocked.
You should arrive at O.R Tambo International Airport between 17:00 and 18:00 so that you can catch your connecting flight. Always remember to allow for enough time, in case of unforeseen circumstances. If you’d like to stay another night or two in the ‘City of Gold’, our African Safari Consultants will be delighted to help book your accommodation and city tours.
