Experience South Africa's best known National Park

image

Travel from Pretoria through Mpumalanga's picturesque Panorama route to see views over the magnificent Blyde River Canyon. The highlight of this Rediscover Africa tour is undoubtedly the famed Kruger National Park with its wide variety of animals. Enjoy wildlife viewing in South Africa's best known National park.

Day 1. Pretoria to Kruger National Park Highlights. Blyde River Canyon, South Africa. Shangaan Cultural Evening. Three Rondavels, South Africa. Accommodation. Hotel Numbi.

Our journey begins as we depart from South Africa’s administrative capital city, Pretoria. Driving across the scenic Mpumalanga province to marvel at the mountain scenery of the Panorama Route. We make our way to Hazyview bordering Kruger National Park. Fences between the National Park and surrounding private reserves were removed several years ago to form the Greater Kruger, an area of some 24000 sq km.

Wildlife is free to roam the area and it has become incredibly diverse in both fauna and flora. From the dwarf mongoose to the famed ‘Big Five’, almost every major African mammal is present. There is also prolific birdlife and over 330 varieties of trees. This evening we enjoy Shangaan tribal dancing and their cultural singing, while sitting around a log fire under African skies.

Day 2. Kruger National Park Highlights. Kruger National Park, South Africa. Accommodation. Hotel Numbi.

An early rise before heading toward the Kruger National Park gates, for an intense yet rewarding day of game driving with our expert guide at the wheel. Kruger is home to over 505 species of birds, 148 species of mammals and many reptiles.

We avoid the hot midday sun and enjoy the peacefulness the rest camp has to offer before heading out again after lunch. There are many facilities available for game viewers such as restaurants, souvenir stores and swimming pools. For those wanting more game driving there is the option of heading out on a night safari.

Early evening, we all enjoy a lovely dinner gathered around the warm fire crackling in the stillness of night.

Day 3. Kruger National Park Highlights. Kruger National Park, South Africa. Accommodation. Hotel Numbi.

After a light sunrise breakfast, we re-enter the Park in an open 4x4 safari vehicle for our second day’s game diving day.

With cameras and binoculars on hand we spend the morning and afternoon winding along beaten tracks and marked routes encountering many species which are indigenous to this region. Kruger has over two million hectares of unrivalled diversity of ecosystems boasting an incredible concentration of wildlife and we hope to encounter some of these including the ‘Big 5’ - elephant, rhino, leopard, lion, and buffalo.

We return to our accommodation during the late afternoon.

Day 4. Hazyview to Pretoria Highlights. Pretoria City.

Today, we make our way back to Pretoria where our tour ends in the late afternoon.

*Transfer is via a shared shuttle vehicle.

Additional Info

PRE TOUR ACCOMMODATION:
This tour departs Pretoria early on day 1; we strongly recommend therefore that you plan to arrive the day before departure to overcome any jet-lag and to acclimatise to Africa. We would be happy to book pre-tour accommodation for you – please call or email us (or speak to your agent) with your arrival details and accommodation requirements. However please book early to avoid disappointment and the risk of having to find more expensive (or less convenient) lodgings.

If time allows, we suggest planning a night or two extra (after your tour) to make the most of this part of Africa. Accommodation is usually available locally on arrival, but you can also pre book this with Acacia.

ACTIVITIES & EXCURSIONS:
These are optional activities that are booked during your holiday and paid directly to the provider while on tour. These options offer a variety of experiences and allow you the freedom to decide what activities you would like to do.

ACCOMMODATION:
Twin / Double share accommodation with facilities (3 nights), some may be with bar or swimming pool.

TRANSPORT: Self-contained, custom-built safari vehicle with ‘club lounge’ seating for 8 including tables, 16 forward facing seats, plug sockets, freezer, water tank, library, music player input, safety features and 70-litre individual luggage compartments.

GAME PARK VISITS:
In order to maximise the quality of game driving and to comply with local authority rulings, some of our National Park visits and game viewing is carried out using services provided by local African ground handlers. As well as enhancing our experience using local guides and smaller vehicles it also allows us to contribute at a ‘grassroots’ level to local economies from which local people benefit. These local services are included in the Safari Pass.

TOUR STYLE:
Your help with occasional day to day duties, such as helping with shopping, cooking, dishes and keeping the Acacia vehicle tidy is entirely on a voluntary basis. It’s a great way to meet the local people and get to know your fellow travellers. It contributes greatly to the success of the tour - most people find the greater their involvement, the greater their enjoyment.
