Days 1 - 3: Welcome to Kruger
You will catch a flight from Johannesburg to a private game reserve in Greater Kruger Park. The first destination on your South Africa safari tour is a deluxe safari lodge in Manyeleti, a place of exquisite beauty and complete peace.
Situated amidst several thousand hectares of lush wilderness, it forms part of the Greater Kruger Park ecosystem. Your spacious suite has its own private plunge pool and deck which overlooks a waterhole.
Relax at the lodge, have a spa treatment or just read a book from the cosy library when you are not out on your morning and afternoon game drives.
Day 4: The adventure continues
After your morning game drive and a hearty breakfast, you will catch a flight to The Sabi Sand Game Reserve, which forms part of the 2.2 million hectare Greater Kruger National Park and is one of South Africa's premier wilderness areas.
This area is home to a large concentration of antelope, birds and reptiles, as well as the Big Five - elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard and rhino. After high tea, you will venture out on an afternoon game drive where you will stop for refreshing sundowners and marvel at the spectacular views sprawled out before you.
Upon returning to the lodge you will freshen up before meeting at the bar for a pre-dinner drink. Dinner is a grand affair served around an open fire in the boma under a starlit African sky.
Indulge in delicious cuisine while discussing the day's sightings with your guide. Retire to your room for the night and let the rhymic sound of the wild lull you to sleep.
Days 5 - 7: Game drives and bush walks
Game drives start in the early morning, the best time to spot game. You are woken up at least 30 minutes before departure, where you will enjoy steaming coffee/tea and rusks before leaving for your game drive.
The highlight of your trip is the close encounters with African wildlife from the safety and comfort of open 4x4 safari vehicles. This is your chance to explore the wonderful world of the Sabi Sands.
Your suite has an indoor and outdoor bath and shower so you can soak up even more of the outdoors and feel close to nature. Spend your afternoons at leisure relaxing before your afternoon game viewing activities.
Day 8: Enjoy your last moments
Savour the last remnants of your Kruger safari on a morning game drive with a short breakfast out in the wild.
There is time to say your farewells before catching a flight back to Johannesburg. Leave your footprints in the bush, your name in the guestbook and a piece of your heart in Africa.
