5 Day Classic Kruger Fly-in Safari Johannesburg Special

Experience Kruger on a 5 Day Classic Safari with return flights from Johannesburg to Skukuza

Itinerary

Day 1: Gauteng – Kruger Park

You depart OR Tambo International Airport to Skukza Airport. Our guide will collect you at Skukuza Airport and transfer you to your Rest Camp.

After settling in to our accommodations, you go out on your first game drive which is a SAN PARKS sunset drive. A sunset drive affords you the opportunity to see nocturnal animals that are more active at night and the Park’s rangers are allowed to return after the normal gate closing times. Note that these drives take place in one of the Kruger Park’s vehicles with a Park’s ranger. This is not a private game drive and there may be other guests on this drive. (Children under 6 years of age are not permitted on open vehicle drives.)

Dinner is a three course meal, served al fresco at camp. Wine is served with dinner but guests are welcome to bring along additional / alternative drinks which can be purchased at the shop.

(Dinner included)

4 day fly in classic kruger safari young cheetah

Day 2, 3 & 4: Full day in the Park

Safaris are all about early mornings, getting out there and seeing animals! After an early wake-up call (the time varies according to the seasons and park gate opening times) we have tea or coffee & muffins. We then set off on the morning safari which will take approximately 3-4 hours. Your guide has an intimate knowledge of the park, which contributes a great deal towards brilliant sightings!

On returning to Camp, breakfast/brunch will be ready at our camp. You then have time to enjoy a swim, catch up on some sleep, visit the park shop which includes African curios, general food items and drinks, take a walk around the camp, or simply relax. Be sure to bring along your binoculars!

After a siesta we set off on the afternoon game drive. We conduct all our game drives in specially adapted 4×4 open game drive vehicles to allow our guests the best possible vantage point.

We share safari stories at the camp fire under the stars after a scrumptious dinner served at our camp.

(Breakfast & Dinner included)

Day 4: Kruger Park – Gauteng

The sun rises over our final day in the Park and we have one last chance to find the animals that have eluded us thus far. After breakfast our guide will transfer you to Skukuza Airport for your flight to CPT.

(Breakfast included)

camping kruger safari lion with cub drinking water

Optional Excursion (free of charge)

We offer an optional excursion to visit select attractions along the Panorama Route in all our Kruger Safaris of 3 days or longer. We stop in one of the small towns en-route for lunch (excluded) and visit attractions such as the Blyde River Canyon, Three Rondavels, Lisbon Waterfalls and God’s Window. We depart Skukuza at around 11h00 and will be back between 17h00 and 18h00. This excursion is available free of charge, replaces one of the afternoon drives and will be co-ordinated by our staff while you are on safari with us. (Kindly note that this excursion is not available on the first or last day of you Safari due to time constrictions)

Notes

On our safaris, we make use of facilities and accommodation situated inside the Kruger National Park and do not stay outside the Kruger, unless forced to do so because of availability.

We have a permanent camp in Skukuza, which is also where our open game drive vehicles are based. However, should Skukuza be fully booked guests will be booked in Pretorius kop Rest Camp.

It is important to note that this is not a private safari and more than likely there will 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 game drive times are subject to change and availability on the day. These drives are conducted by SAN PARKS, 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 SAN Parks open game drive vehicles.

Although we welcome children on our safaris, we reserve the right not to allow younger children on our normal game drives. This will be entirely up to the guide’s discretion and will be in order to ensure a pleasurable game drive 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 and as such one of the parents will have to stay behind to watch the children. Private game drives for families can be arranged at an extra charge.
