All self-catering accommodation in the Kruger Park exclude game viewing activities however you can book additional Game Viewing Activities separately. Your options include sunset, late night and morning game drives, as well as bush walks.
These Kruger Park game drives are conducted by experienced, accredited Parks Board Guides and are offered from all Rest Camps and Bush Camps in the Kruger National Park.
The drives are between 3-4 hours and are weather dependent. If there is too much rain and stormy conditions prevail the drives will not go out or they will be shortened.
The early morning/dawn drives leave at around 04:30am in summer and 05:30am in winter (30 minutes before gate opening times).
The sunset drives on the other hand leave 2 hours before the gate closing time. In summer this is around 16:30pm and you are requested to check-in at reception at 16:00pm.
In winter the drive leaves around 15:30pm and you are requested to check in at 15:00pm. The departure times are given only as a guide as times vary throughout the year.
Unfortunately no children under 6 years are allowed on any of the game drives and no children under 12 for the bush walk. Children under 12 years pay half of the full price for the game drives.
You have to confirm the exact departure time and collection point with reception the previous night when you check- in to your accommodation.
Sometimes due to bad weather a game drive may be canceled. This is out of our control and unfortunately unpredictable.
We are not always informed by the camp so please ensure that you contact us when you get home. You will receive a full refund on the canceled activities.
Most Rest Camps and Bushveld Camps offer some form of game viewing activity but not always all of them.
There are only a few select camps that offer the late night drive. Please confirm with your consultant at the time of booking.
To avoid disappointment we definitely recommend pre-booking at least some of your activities. Each camp only has a certain number of vehicles and these are quickly booked up.
If you are keen on flexibility try and pre-book at least one game drive in advance so you do not to miss out.
