Kruger National Park är en av Sydafrikas största turistattraktion. Det är hem till Big Five såväl som 336 trädsorter, 34 amfibier, 114 reptiler, 49 fisk-, 507 fågel- och 147 däggdjursarter har Kruger National Park blivit Sydafrikas ultimata safaridestination.
Set your sights on Kruger National Park and Timbavati Private Game
Reserve, a private game reserve that shares a fenceless border with Kruger National Park (which let’s
you experience this vast wilderness without the crowds, and where the vehicles can go off-road to get
really close to the animals).
This is one of the best areas in South Africa to see the elusive leopard, and also the only place in the
world where the white lions roam wild. In the late afternoon, you set off on your first game drive which
also includes a “sundowner” (a drink) in the bush to watch the sun set. The last part of the drive will be in
the dark, and your guide has a strong torch so that he can spot nocturnal animals. Once back in camp,
gather by the fire with your fellow guests and then enjoy a delicious dinner.
The lodge is my favourite camp in the whole country. It is rustic but comfortable, and gives you a real
bush experience. There is no electricity (but the office has a generator if you should ned to charge your
phone or camera) and at night the camp is lit by oil lanterns. The camp is unfenced, meaning that you
are staying in the middle of the wilderness (although elephants are discouraged by a high wire as they
tend to steal the water pipes).
Meals: breakfast and dinner (all drinks included)
Activities: afternoon game drive
You will be woken just before sunrise, and after a cup of tea it’s time to meet the new day in the bush.
After about 3 hours, you return to camp and eat a big breakfast. The rest of the day is free. You may
want to sit on the deck and watch the animals at the nearby waterhole, take a dip in the pool or perhaps
a nap. After lunch, you depart for your evening game drive just like yesterday.
Meals: breakfast, lunch & dinner (and all drinks)
