Kruger Park Classic Safari Itinerary:
Day 1: Johannesburg - Kruger Park (D)
On entering Numbi Gate we take a leisurely drive with your guide pointing out various bird species, antelope and discussing our flora and fauna with you. We stop at one of the Kruger camps for a lunch break before continuing on our afternoon game drive till gate closing time and we check in to your accommodation for a well deserved good nights rest at the end of your first day of your Kruger Park Classic Safari. Dinner will be served in the restaurant and your guide will let you know the time to meet him there.
Days 2: Kruger Park (B D)
The day starts early in the Kruger Park, as does your 3 day classic safari, in order to have a greater chance of seeing game, so you'll get a wake-up call at 05h30 in order to get on the road by the time the gates open. We'll stop at one of the Kruger camps for breakfast at 08h00 as well as a chance to stretch your legs. After breakfast we continue on our Kruger Park Classic Safari, hoping to spot as many animals as possible before lunch, when will then stop for another break, before making our way slowly back to camp to get ready for your night safari which departs at 17h00 and returns to camp by 20h00 after which you may enjoy dinner in the restaurant once again.
Day 3: Kruger Park - Johannesburg (B)On the last morning of your 3 day classic safari, you have the opportunity of concluding your Kruger Park classic safari on another early morning game drive before returning to camp for breakfast and packing up. We depart the park by 09h30. We may even take our luggage with us and have breakfast at one of the picnic areas before departing from the park. (Your guide will notify you the night before). It’s time to start back towards Johannesburg, and your last morning’s game drive will bring you into contact with large herds of Impala as we head our way towards the Numbi Gate. Your ranger will drop you off in Johannesburg at 16h00.
