Days 1: Fly into Kruger

You will take an air transfer in a light aircraft from O.R Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg to a private lodge in Timbavati Game Reserve. You will have some time to relax at the lodge before embarking on your first exciting game drive with your own personal ranger. Return to the lodge for a delicious dinner under the stars.

Day 2: On safari in Sabi Sand Game Reserve

Although you will want to spend more time in your luxury East African styled tent featuring an en-suite bathroom, Victorian bathtub, outdoor shower and a spacious deck overlooking the riverbed, you will need to make an early start to ensure you see as many of the Big 5 as you can.

Situated in the finest big game country, this area is home to lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo, giraffe, zebra and various species of antelope. Your morning and night private game drives will be conducted by experienced, knowledgeable rangers and trackers in open 4x4 safari vehicles.

Day 3: Travel to Timbavati

A morning guided bush walk will present the opportunity to discover the smaller, finer aspects of nature and track game on foot.

After a hearty breakfast, you will be transferred to your next private safari lodge in the Timbavati.

Experience colonial elegance at this luxury lodge. Your opulently decorated suite features a Victorian ball-and-claw bath, an indoor and double outdoor shower, as well as a private veranda with a hammock overlooking the bush.

Relax and enjoy the lodge facilities before heading off on an evening game drive where your knowledgeable guide will track fascinating nocturnal wildlife.

Day 4: In search of white lions

Spend another day exploring the African bush and seeing more wildlife on game drives and bush walks. Back at the lodge you can sit on the viewing deck overlooking a very active waterhole and see even more wildlife, or take a swim and cool off.

Go in search for the rare white lions that are found in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve. Sunset in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve takes you to a new landscape to enjoy sundowners while you watch shadows of the wild dance across the plains.

Day 5: Enjoy last moments on safari

Today you can relish one final game drive followed by a delicious breakfast, before you bid farewell to the wilderness and embark on your onward flight back to Johannesburg.
