Day 1 of the 4 day Kruger Camping Johannesburg/Kruger National Park
Sawubona! Welcome to South Africa. Early morning on Day 1 (around 5am) we depart Johannesburg, the ‘City of Gold’ and head off on an adventure of a lifetime. A truly unique African experience unfolds as we enter the Greater Kruger National Park ecosystem arriving at our Campsite in time for dinner (600 km, approx 8-9 hours travel time including stops along the way). One of the largest game reserves in Southern Africa, Kruger National Park is home to over 500 bird species, 100 species of reptile and 150 mammal species, including the Big Five and the endangered African wild dog. After settling into camp we venture out into the bush as we track the wildlife of the African wilderness in open 4×4 vehicles. Our afternoon Game Drive takes us into Big Five territory and continues on into the night where with the aid of spotlights we are introduced to some of the elusive creatures of the night. Our base camp for the next 3 nights is in the Andover Game Reserve which borders the Kruger National park. While at our base camp, we camp in permanent two-person dome tents (bedding is provided). Our campsites are National Park facilities and generally have hot and cold showers with flushing toilets.

Days 2-3 Kruger National Park
After an early rise we depart our camp and enter the gates of the world renowned Kruger National Park. Our game drive takes us on one of the better game drive routes within the park, giving us the opportunity to view the varied landscapes, ecosystems and abundant wildlife that is unique to Kruger National Park. Our entire day is spent game viewing, bird watching and stopping off at the various waterholes. We will take a break for lunch at one of the parks lunch spots along the way before continuing our Safari experience. Kruger National Park is reputed to have the continent’s greatest variety of animals and its sprawling stretch of savanna offers one of the best safari experiences in Africa. After an exciting day’s game viewing we head back to our base camp to enjoy an evening of tranquility around the campfire. Tonight we enjoy a traditional Braai (Barbeque) listening to the sounds of the night.
