After a satisfying breakfast you will head out on a full-day Panorama Route tour. 
Prepare for an amazing experience seeing some of the most scenic attractions in South Africa. 

After passing by the historically significant Mac Mac Falls, the Panorama Tour continues on to two of the area's most well-known sights: God's Window and the Blyde River Canyon.

One of the most breathtaking natural locations you will ever visit is God's Window.  This attraction is a must-see because it is located 6000 feet above sea level and offers breathtaking views of the Lowveld and the Kruger National Park. 

You will be able to take spectacular selfies and photos with an awesome backdrop - no filter required here! 

Day 3: Full Day Wildlife Safari in Kruger Park

Wildlife lovers are in for a treat today on a guided safari in Kruger National Park. Your expert ranger will track wildlife including as many of the Big 5 as possible.  

Herds of buffalo, zebra, and giraffes are also frequently seen, as are numerous other wild species and birds, such as hornbills, eagles, hippos, and a profusion of antelope, such as impala and kudus. 

Throughout the day, you will stop at Kruger Park picnic areas and rest camps for lunch and bathroom breaks. 

Day 4: Cruise The Blyde River Canyon

Today you will head out on a morning game drive in the 5,500-hectare Rietspruit Big Game Reserve. Enjoy the gorgeous views over Blyde River Canyon and the Drakensberg Mountain Range, while you spot a variety of wildlife including lions, elephants, cheetahs, leopards and rhinos.

Relax at the lodge and treat yourself to a spa treatment before you head out on a scenic cruise.
