ITINERARY

Day 1

Kruger National Park (Dinner Bed & Breakfast)

We collect you at 07:00 from your doorstep, travel to the Kruger Park, and spend the day in this world-renowned reserve. We check in at Skukuza Rest Camp in the afternoon and have dinner in the camp’s restaurant.  A night drive in an open vehicle with a National Park’s Board ranger is optional (but very exciting).  Accommodation is in thatched rondavels (chalets / bungalows), all with private en-suite bathroom.

Day 2

Kruger National Park (Breakfast only)

After breakfast we go on one more game drive before leaving the park, and then head for the Escarpment at around noon.  Shopping and sightseeing are on the menu before heading back to Pretoria.  We will be back at around 18:00 and drop you off in Pretoria.
