Almost everyone who comes to this part of the African continent will want to check off an authentic African safari in Kruger National Park. A camping safari trip to the park for five days is a great way to get away from it all and relax.
A trip to Kruger National Park is everything you could hope for from an African safari, and the best way to make the most of your time there and see everything you came for is to do it with a skilled guide and spending your evenings in front of your tent under the stars.
South Africa’s most famous wildlife reserve has earned its spectacular reputation in part due to the incredible variety of animals and plants that can be found there. It is no wonder the Kruger Safari Co.’s five-day camping safari is such a popular option for seeing the region’s breath-taking scenery.
We leave the Johannesburg OR Tambo Airport bus terminal at 07:00 for your transfer to Hazyview. It is a 5-6 hour drive, and you will stop for lunch (at your own expense) along the way.
From Hazyview, you board an open safari vehicle for a late afternoon safari drive into the park, after which you are checked into your accommodation.
Dinner is served under the stars at our private camp within Pretoriuskop.
The night is spent in your comfortable domed tent at the camp and your package includes dinner.
Following an early wake-up call each day, there will be time for tea or coffee and rusks before departing for a full day open vehicle safari drive from approximately 06:00 to 15:30. Brunches are included along your route, and your guide will also stop for you to purchase refreshments further during the day.
Dinners are served under the stars at our private camp within the rest camp after some relaxation back at the camp or added optional activity.
The nights are spent in your comfortable domed tent at the camp and your package includes hot beverages and rusks, light brunches and three-course dinners.
You wake up early again, pack up and depart on a morning safari drive in the open vehicle. Breakfast is included along route in the park before you are dropped off in Hazyview and get into the transfer vehicle back to Johannesburg.
