5 Day Classic Kruger Fly-in Safari Johannesburg Special

5 Day Fly-in Classic Kruger Safari Special

There’s no better way to see the Kruger National Park than on a 5 Day Classic Kruger Safari with return flights from Johannesburg to a Kruger Park airport.


Day 1: Gauteng to Kruger Park

You’ll fly from O.R. Tambo International Airport to a Kruger National Park airport. From there, we will collect and transfer you to our camp.

After settling into your accommodations, you’ll get to go on your first Kruger safari – a SANParks Sunset Drive – which affords you the opportunity to see nocturnal wildlife. The Kruger National Park’s rangers are allowed to return after the normal gate closing times, plus, these drives take place in one of their vehicles with one of their rangers. This is not a private safari so there may be other guests on the drive. (Children under 6 years of age are not permitted on open vehicle drives.)

Dinner is served al fresco (weather permitting) and wine is served with dinner. Guests are, however, welcome to bring along additional/alternative drinks which can be purchased at Kruger Park’s shop.
(Dinner included)

Days 2, 3 & 4: A Full Day in the Kruger National Park

Kruger wildlife safaris are all about early mornings, and getting out there and seeing the animals! The time you go on your Kruger safari varies according to the seasons and camp gate opening times. We will set off on our morning safari after a refreshing cup of tea or coffee and snacks. Prepare to seek out your favourite Big Five safari wildlife as the drive should take approximately 3 to 4 hours.

On your return to camp, brunch will be ready. You’ll then have time to visit the Kruger National Park’s shop, which includes African curios, general food items and drinks, take a walk around the camp or relax in your chalet. Also, be sure to bring your binoculars, as Kruger Park is a bird watcher’s paradise!

After your leisure time, we set off on your afternoon Kruger safari. To allow our guests the best possible vantage point, we conduct all our safaris in specially adapted 4×4 open game drive vehicles. We then share stories under the stars after a scrumptious dinner served at our camp.
(Breakfast & Dinner included)

Day 5: Kruger Park to Gauteng

The sun rises over our final day in the Kruger National Park and we have one last chance to find the animals that have eluded us thus far. After breakfast, we’ll transfer you to an airport close to our camp in Kruger Park for your flight to O.R. Tambo International Airport.
(Breakfast included)

The Panorama Route (optional excursion)

We offer an optional excursion to visit select attractions along the Panorama Route in all of our Kruger safaris that are three days or longer, like the Blyde River Canyon, Three Rondavels, Lisbon Falls and God’s Window. This excursion is available free of charge, and replaces your game drives for that day. It will be coordinated by our staff while you are on your Kruger safari with us. (Kindly note that this excursion is not available on the first or last day of your safari due to time constraints.)

On this Fly-in Safari, we make use of facilities and accommodation situated inside the Kruger National Park and do not stay outside Kruger, unless forced to do so because of availability.

It is important to note that this is not a private safari and there will probably be other guests joining you on the game drive vehicles, air-conditioned mini bus transfer vehicles as well as in the dining facility.

Please note that Sunset Drive times are subject to change and availability on the day. These drives are conducted by SANParks, by one of their rangers and in one of their vehicles. There will most likely be other guests on this drive. Children under 6 years of age are not allowed on SANParks’ open safari vehicles.

Although we welcome children on our Kruger wildlife safaris, we reserve the right not to allow younger children on our normal game drives. This will entirely be at the guide’s discretion and is done to ensure a pleasurable Kruger safari for all our guests (including the parents). Should this be the case, a bush bumble (kiddies game drive) will be conducted after the normal game drive, especially for the kids. We do not offer babysitting services and, as such, one of the parents will have to stay behind to watch the children. Private safaris for families can be arranged at an extra charge.
