Day 1: Johannesburg O.R. Tambo Airport to Kruger Park
You will check in at Johannesburg Airport for a morning flight to Nelspruit where you will be met on arrival by a representative and your road transfer to the classic safari camp in Kruger National Park.
First wildlife sightings can already experienced en-route to your classic tented camp once you enter the Kruger Park gate. Arrival at the camp is scheduled for the afternoon where you will enjoy a welcome drink before being taken to your room where you can settle in and freshen up.
You will meet back at the main camp area and then head out to the bush which is the starting point for the 3 hour afternoon bush walk. You will then return to the vehicle for sundowner drinks before embarking on a night game drive back to the camp. A traditional African dinner is served on return to your tented camp.
Day 2: Walking Safari in Kruger National Park
After the early morning wake-up call, you will enjoy a fresh cup of coffee/tea and snacks before setting off on a walking trail from the camp. The morning walk is an exciting experience, tracking African wildlife on foot by following “spoor” (tracks) of the different wildlife along paths through the bush.
The walk is normally a 3-4 hour activity at a leisurely pace and you will go through riverbeds and open plains deep into the bush. Refreshments and snacks are served at a stop en-route.
Return back to camp and enjoy a leisurely brunch after which you will have time to relax by the pool or read a good book. After a delicious high tea you will again set off on an afternoon drive which includes a bush walk. The night drive back to camp by spotlight will give you the opportunity of spotting some nocturnal wildlife. Enjoy dinner on arrival back at camp before retiring for the evening.
Day 3: Depart Kruger National Park for Johannesburg O.R. Tambo Airport

Breakfast is served once you arrive back at your tented camp, after which you will check out and get ready for the road transfer to Kruger Mpumalanga airport.
