Many African wildlife safaris in South Africa rely solely on the attraction of the Big Five and often environmental awareness is overlooked in the rush to view the big game, but at this classic lodge, the emphasis goes beyond the wildlife.
Getting back to nature is a big part of the safari experience at this classic lodge and the guides are all trained to provide a truly memorable African wildlife safari at an eco-friendly camp in South Africa. With great game viewing and intimate, close to nature encounters, this package offers a classic Kruger Park safari experience.
You will be met at Skukuza for your 40-minute transfer through Kruger National Park en-route to the lodge.
Upon arrival at the lodge, staff will be waiting to assist with check-in procedures and taking you through to your tented room. You will then have time to settle in and freshen up before meeting back on the main deck for delectable afternoon snacks.
The first exciting open safari vehicle game drive will follow which is a 3-4 hour excursion deep into the wilderness. You will arrive back at camp in time to enjoy dinner under the African night sky.
Following your early morning wake-up call with coffee/tea and rusks, you will head out on an open vehicle safari game drive, during which your ranger will track African wildlife such as lion, buffalo, elephant, rhino and cheetah. After the game drive, a hot brunch will be served at your classic lodge.
The hot midday period can be spent relaxing at the pool with a book, or maybe on your private patio overlooking the African Bush before late afternoon snacks. Embark on an afternoon open safari vehicle game drive which also doubles as a night drive since your return to camp after sunset. This experience will give you the opportunity of spotting nocturnal African wildlife in their natural habitat.
A traditional African dinner is served on your return to the camp. Discuss the days' sightings with new friends around the fire with an after dinner drink before turning in for the evening. Nothing beats the experience of staying close to nature in a tented suite and falling asleep listening to the sounds of the bush.
After another early wake up call, depart on the final morning open safari vehicle game drive where you will have a last chance at spotting any animals that you might have missed so far. Breakfast is served once you arrive back at the camp. After breakfast you will be transferred back to Skukuza.
