Day 1: Gauteng to Kruger Park
You’ll catch your flight from O.R. Tambo International Airport to an airport close to the Kruger National Park. From there, we’ll collect and transfer you to our camp.
After settling into your accommodations, you’ll go on your first Kruger wildlife safari – a SANParks Sunset Drive. It affords you the opportunity to see nocturnal animals, and better still, the Kruger National Park’s rangers are allowed to return after the normal gate closing times. Remember, these drives take place in one of the Kruger Park’s vehicles with one of their rangers. This is not a private Kruger 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 also welcome to bring along additional/alternative drinks which can be purchased at Kruger Park’s shop.
Day 3: Kruger Park to Private Game Reserve
Following an early wake-up call, you’ll receive a packed breakfast before we head to a Private Game Reserve. Arriving in time for the afternoon game drive, you’ll get some time to freshen up before heading out to look for African wildlife in one of the lodge’s open safari vehicles. This drive generally takes about 4 hours and tends to extend into the early evening. The Private Reserves are particularly famous for their ‘up-close and personal’ sightings of predators and, while we cannot guarantee these sightings, your chances of seeing the magnificent Big 5 and more are very good!
Dinner is served under the stars (weather permitting) and the day ends with discussions around an open fire about what you saw during the day and plans for the next day.
(Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner included)
Day 5: Private Game Reserve to Gauteng
An early wake-up call and the scent of freshly-brewed coffee signals the start of your last safari and one more opportunity to experience the magic that only the African bush can offer!
Upon your return, breakfast is served. You will then travel from the Private Reserve to an airport near the Kruger National Park, from where you will then fly to O.R. Tambo International Airport.

On our Kruger safaris, 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.
