2 night / 3-day Kruger Park Open Vehicle Safari (Dinner, Bed and Breakfast)

Rates from:

Sharing $2,660.00 Single $1,330.00

Departures:

We normally depart from the OR Thambo International Airport, or any of the surrounding airport hotels, at around 08h00 in the morning and travel by luxury, air-conditioned minibus to the Kruger National Park. As we pass Nelspruit at around 13h00, you can also depart from Nelspruit if you prefer (same cost as departing from Jo’burg). This is a scheduled safari with fixed departure dates, but customized departures are possible, subject to availability. You can also request a private departure just for your group. For our scheduled departures, we take a maximum of 9 people per vehicle.

Accommodation:

The safari includes two nights' accommodation at one of the most popular camps in the park. The camp is situated in an excellent game viewing area. You will be staying in comfortable, air-conditioned bungalows with en-suite bathroom/shower. These bungalows are very clean and serviced daily with fresh linen and towels. They are equipped with either two or three single beds and insect screens are fitted at the windows and door. This is not a camping safari and you will not be expected to pitch tents, dig your own toilet, share accommodation with strangers or anything like that! The camp is safely fenced with an electric fence, and has a well-stocked curio/supermarket shop, a take-away café, restaurant and swimming pool. The camp also has a lovely viewing deck and walkway overlooking the Sabie River.

THE SAFARI COST INCLUDES:

• Return road transfers from OR Tambo International Airport (or surrounding hotels) in air-conditioned mini-bus. • Kruger Park entrance fee and daily conservation fees. • 2 nights' accommodation inside the Kruger Park in standard en-suite bungalows with air-conditioning. • All breakfasts and dinners. • Limited refreshments, tea and coffee. • All game drives on an open safari vehicle with expert guide.

2-night / 3-day

Kruger Park Open Vehicle Safari is one of our most popular safaris and offers you a quick, affordable way to experience the famous Kruger National Park, in the company of an expert guide.

Game drives:

All daily game drives are included in the cost and are conducted on an open safari vehicle, which is designed to offer an unrivalled game viewing experience. You will have an experienced and knowledgeable safari guide who can help you spot animals and will be able to interpret their behaviour and relay fascinating facts and stories about the bush. Our guides are English speaking. On each drive we offer courtesy binoculars, reference books and mineral water. We make regular comfort stops on all game drives, and your guide will take time each day to consult with you about the route and options for the day. With each booking, we also provide you with a complimentary map book of the Kruger Park.

Meals

Breakfasts and dinners are included in the tour price, and you will not be expected to help with the cooking. Breakfast or brunch is offered either at the camp or by our guide along the way, who will make a real feast of it! Our bush brunch in the Kruger Park, for example, is cooked up in grand style at a lovely picnic spot in the bush, perhaps overlooking a waterhole where you can view the animals coming down for a drink. Dinners are usually prepared by your guide and may take the form of a traditional South African braai (barbecue) under the stars, weather permitting. In some cases the guide may decide to make use of the camp restaurant instead. Drinks are for your own account. Our safaris are relaxed and informal, and there is no need to dress up for dinner.

Panorama Route:

Going back via the scenic Panorama Route with its view points and waterfalls is not offered as a standard option on this safari, because of the time involved. It would mean no game drive on the final morning, but taking a packed breakfast and going straight to the exit gate, then a rushed 10 hour drive via the scenic Panorama Route back to Johannesburg, and you would only get to see some of the views. We prefer to make the most of our safari time in Kruger and enjoy a final game drive on the last morning. If you would like to see the Panorama Route, we suggest spending an additional night so you don’t have to cut short your safari. We can easily add this on upon request, if time and budget allows.

 

Children:

Children are welcome on this safari, and if any of the children are under eight years of age, we will need to arrange a private departure for your group, with no other guests on board. A private departure costs a bit more. Children under twelve years old pay 60% of the adult rate. Children twelve years and over at the time of travel will pay full price.

Single supplement:
A single supplement of 25% applies. Kindly note that we need to have a minimum of two people in order to guarantee a departure.

THE SAFARI COST EXCLUDES:
* Flights, visas and airport tax.
* Personal travel insurance.
* Lunches / meals not specified.
* Drinks.
* Optional extras.
* Personal expenses.
* Gratuities (optional)
