    4 Day travel itinerary 

    Day 1 - Johannesburg to Kruger National Park 

    Guests either self drive or will be transferred by group transfer or private transfer from Johannesburg to the Kruger National Park. On arrival at Paul Kruger Gate guests are met by Andrew and then moved over to their own personal Open Safari Vehicle. We then journey through to our first overnight - Satara. 

    Day 2 - Satara  to Letaba

    Day 2 starts with a sunrise walk in the surround grasslands of the central region. An area that is rich in game and offers incredible views, this morning walk explores classic open savanna with opportunities to see wonderful mammal diversity. With your safety overlooked by two armed park rangers, Andrew will share with you the incredible bio-diversity of the grasslands region and its important geology and macro ecological factors. You will also learn about track and sign as we look for the Big 5. 

    After the morning walk, which usually takes about 3 hours, you will return to camp for breakfast and then pack and start making way to your next overnight camp - Letaba. The drive to Letaba will take you across the mighty Olifants river and expose you to two new Biomes. We arrive at Letaba afternoon. 

    Day 3 - Letaba back down South 

    Day 3 starts with another sunrise walk but this time you will explore the riparian river frontage along the banks of the might Letaba River. This is a completely different walking environment to the previous day and explores water front habitat, the large riverine trees and offers wonderful mammal and bird viewing. 
    After the morning walk, which usually takes about 3 hours, you will return to camp for breakfast and then pack and start making way back south to Satara. The route back to Satara will focus on the eastern border roads that transitions through 3 different biomes and explore the vast openness of the Park. This is a very exciting drive, albeit long it showcases the very best of Kruger. If you dreamed on travelling through Africa, its rolling hills and open grasslands, this is it. The route also offers wonderful birding with species like Southern Ground Hornbill, Kori Bustard, Ostrich, Temmincks Courser and Chestnut-backed Sparrowlarks. 

    We arrive back in camp around sunset for a few cold sundowners, dinner and some R&R.

    Day 4 - Satara and depart

    On your last morning we will wake early and depart after coffee making your way south to our breakfast stop at Tshokwane outpost. The early morning departure offers us one last chance to find crepuscular species (active at dawn and dusk) like Lion, Hyena, Leopard, Honey-badger. After breakfast we make our final stop back at Paul Kruger Gate where you will then board your transfer back to JHB. Should you self drive then we will park your vehicle at Skukuza Camp where we will collect and drop ups off. Skukuza Camps is a 15min drive from the gate. 

    What our guests say :

    " Excellent - Our family of 4, including two teenagers, had the pleasure of spending 4 days on safari with Andrew. Pick up at our hotel was on time and entering the park at the Paul Kruger gate was easy. We enjoyed exploring different areas of Kruger in his clean and comfortable vehicle (blankets, hot chocolate/coffee, and binoculars were thoughtfully provided). Andrew’s knowledge of the park (terrain, soil, plants, birds and animals) is unbelievably extensive. In addition to spotting the “big 5”, we observed a variety of other animals/birds and the very rare cheetah and wild dogs! Andrew also provided airport transfers and a panoramic tour of the Blyde River Canyon including the Three Rondavels, Bourkes Potholes, God’s Window and another scenic stop. We ended our trip touring Cape Town with a guide recommended by Andrew. Thanks to Safaria’s full service, we had an amazing bucket list trip. "

    The adventure of Safari is an exciting adventure filled journey that captures the imagination of every traveller to Africa. Preparation is also part of the excitement and because the African bush can be unpredictable we advise that our guests kindly bring with them the following attire and items of a personal nature
    • Camera
    • Binoculars
    • A good bush hat for summer months or warm beanie in winter
    • Sunglasses
    • Comfortable shoes

    We don't recommend for heavily pregnant women or persons recovering from recent back or hip injuries/surgery.

    What to Wear:

    Summer Months : September to April
    Cool functional attire preferably in dull darker shades to create uniformity with environment. Always remember a good hat as well as sunscreen. Midday summer temperatures can reach upward of 40 degrees and afternoons can experience thundershowers. All vehicles are equipped with blankets and waterproof ponchos for our guests.
    Winter Months: May to August
    During the winter months we typically experience blue skies with a daily average temperature of 20 - 25 degrees Celsius. Early morning and late afternoons are cooler and we recommend warmer attire as this is amplified particularly when travelling on an open safari vehicle.
