That’s also a big part of the reason that we do what we do – you could read about the Kruger National Park, or speak to friends and family that have been there and hear the tales they have to share about what they saw, but none of it will ever truly illustrate the vivid, rich and detailed nature of the South African bush – details that can only be experienced with your own eyes.

On a game drive in a Private Reserve, you probably won’t see any public vehicles either – this is because only safari vehicles go out on game drives. It’s a great way to ensure that there’s minimal congestion at sightings. Private Kruger safaris also usually do night drives, have a tracker along for the game drives and are allowed to go off-road if there’s a possibility of a good sighting.

Well, let’s see if we can help answer most, if not all, of your questions…
The best part about opting for a combined Private Lodge and Kruger safari is that it’s something that you can customise and make your own – you get to decide how many days to spend in Kruger Park and how many on a Private Reserve.

FYI: Accommodation in Kruger Park is in en-suite chalets with beds, linen, towels and soap. These chalets have a small fridge, air conditioning and mosquito proofing on the doors and windows, and accommodation during your private Kruger safari is in luxury en-suite rooms with beds, linen, towels and amenities, however, facilities vary from lodge to lodge.
