What's included in this trip
Kruger Express - Camping SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Depart the urban wilds of Johannesburg, and discover the vast plains of the Kruger National Park where the Big Five roam. The park is home to 150 species of mammals including cheetahs, lions, zebras and aardvarks. The staggering amount of bird species, plus the wide variety of insects and reptiles, makes this the ultimate wildlife experience. Jump on board an open safari vehicle to explore the park in search of Africa's iconic animals.
Depart at first light for an entire days game viewing. With luck, there will be close encounters with lions, elephants and even a giraffe or two. At night, head out once more for a sunset safari drive and keep an eye out for night predators and other animals who make up Kruger's nocturnal community.
Enjoy another full day of game-viewing in Kruger before travelling to a private reserve in the late afternoon. In the evening, settle into a lodge and enjoy a drink and a tasty, traditional South African dinner.
Complete the safari experience with an early morning nature walk. Explore the wilderness one last time with a field guide and learn how to track wild animals. Sadly, it's then time to bid the African wilderness farewell. Travel along the Drakensberg Escarpment and see the spectacular Three Rondavels while overlooking the awesome Blyde River Canyon. Continue on to Johannesburg where this short but thrilling adventure ends.
