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.
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.
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.
Wonderful 3 Day Safari
I went on Safari with Outlook Safaris in June last year on part of a year out. Everything about the company was perfect, even before booking everything was very well taken care of. When I initially emailed with questions I was replied to very quickly and all the information I received was very useful, Robert was very patient with me. The drivers who picked me up in Jo’Burg were very friendly and professional and made the journey up to the Kruger Park very pleasant. I stayed in the most basic accommodation provided but it had all I needed including a fan and heater because the temperature varied so much. The Skukuza Park is stunning, with beautiful birds, baboons all wandering around. The game drives were amazing.
I just want to say that this was one of the most awesome experiences I’ve had. From the moment I first arrived until the sad last day I had to leave was amazing. Moss driving our group to Kruger National Park that first morning. Not sure if it was the early hour, but everyone was quiet and either looking out of the window, listening to their ipod, or getting some more sleep. I wasn’t sure what to expect. After our first stop for gas and snack some conversations started. By the end of the trip, I really missed seeing everyone every day and sharing those wonderful memories. I had such a good time building friendships and sharing laughs. I think I enjoyed making those new friends as much as seeing all of those wonderful animals in their own environment.

Both my husband and myself have traveled extensively and have had unquestionably one of the best experiences of our lives with Outlook Safaris. The first safari we took was the Classic 7 Day Kruger Park Safari, and this January/February we enjoyed the 5 Day Explorer Safari. Both safaris were wonderful and we were able to see many of the “harder to find” animals. The staff is enthusiastic about their jobs and it shows. Their excitement is only outdone by their knowledge of the bush.I would recommend also an overnight at Outlook Lodge on your return to Johannesburg where Chef and Manager Francois will pamper you with wonderful meals. The downy beds and intimate surroundings are refreshing after a soujourn in the bush. All in all, an experience never to be missed.

An Incredible Company
An incredible company. Debbie the guide and also game driver has a wealth of knowledge and passion for the wilderness like no other. Being a single female traveller, I felt completely safe. All the staff are friendly, the meals delicious and the experience is second to none! The game drive vehicles are large enough to feel safe but small enough to have an intimate experience with the animals.

4 Day Safari Wonder
We just finished a 4 day safari and had a wonderful time. Our guide Joostie was a riot. It was completely worry- free and that was exactly what we were looking for. Outlook Safaris took care of everything.
