Safari- makes us think of untamed wildlife, magical scenery & beautiful sunsets. Kruger is the most famous of all National Parks. Fly from Johannesburg to Hoedspruit or Nelspruit at the edge of the Park & continue onwards to your lodge.
At Kruger you will be certain to see a good selection of animals. Game viewing is done typically on a Game Drive vehicle twice a day- one early in the morning where you set out before dawn to see the animals getting up & maybe even enjoy breakfast in the wild. The second game drive takes place in the evening close to sunset where you can witness nocturnal animals coming out of their hiding. See a cheetah run & kill its prey(deer) or a Lion from a distance of one feet. Your driver & guide will give you immense information about the animals & increase your chances of spotting the Big 5 & the more elusive species of animals. All this followed by a barbeque dinner will make for an unforgettable memory. Accommodation at lodges mostly includes all meals & game drives.Plan My South Africa Vacation Plan
