Our Kruger-Park Safaris!!


For those who don’t have much time - this is the Safari for you!

You get to see and experience the southern part of Kruger National Park. Be part of your surroundings with a "braai" under the awesome African night sky, a night in a tent while the lions roar and the hyenas laugh, and start the next day with a hearty "bush breakfast". You will do a Night Drive with the Kruger National Park Guides, and an early morning Game Drive. During the day we also see many of the wild animals that this world famous park is renowned for!
