Kruger Park Walking Safari

Basic Itinerary

Johannesburg - Walking Safari - Johannesburg

 

 
     

First Day:

On the day of departure you will be collected from one of our selected pick-up points in Jo'burg or Pretoria between 5.00-6.00am. The journey takes approximately 5 hours with stops along the way.

You will meet your ranger at a lovely bush pub at the edge of the reserves, where you will be required to sign an indemnity form and everyone forming the group, have their first lunch together.

After lunch, you are transferred in an open 4x4 Land Rover, to one of our bush camps, deep in the Greater Kruger National Park, making sure that over the next few days, you spend the maximum time enjoying yourself in the bush.......

Mornings:

In the mornings you set off at first light after a snack of rusks, cereal or yogurt/milk with tea or coffee.

Enjoying the cool morning breeze, your ranger may decide you walk directly from camp or to use the Land Rover initially, to get deeper into the bush!

Your ranger & tracker will decipher the tracks and signs left by the animals during the night. The thrill of walking, tracking and getting up close to any one of the creatures of the bush is an unforgettable experience, especially any of the Big Five.

On the walks there is also a lot of emphasis on all the other interesting things seen, such as trees, plants, insects and birds.

A big breakfast is prepared by chef back in camp and then there is free time to shower, socialise, unwind or siesta during the heat of the day.

Afternoons:

After lunch, it's time to head out again.

The afternoon's activity is a walk/drive combination, looking for tracks and activity in other areas of the bush.

After the walk we drive to a beautiful spot in the bush, where we’ll have 'sundowners' while waiting for a stunning African sunset.

As the diurnal animals and birds anxiously get ready for bed, the stage and sounds change and a whole new world awakens......

Nights:

This is when we connect up the trackers hand held spotlight to the Land Rover and slowly night drive back towards camp, searching for nocturnal creatures, that are so rarely seen during the day.

Back in camp a hearty dinner and a warm campfire will be waiting for you.

After a long day in the bush and after a few drinks, there is nothing more rewarding than sneaking off to your tent, getting into bed and falling asleep listening to the night sounds of the African bush, all under a blanket of the overwhelming stars of the Southern hemisphere!

Last Day:

On the last day you will go out for one last morning walk. Sniffing the typical scents of the bush you’ll realise how much you have learned already!

After breakfast it’s time to pack up and be transferred back to the bush pub. At the bush pub you will be required to pay (in cash) the Conservation Fee and for the drinks that you consumed, at the camps honesty bar.

With everyone saying their goodbyes, you are transferred to one of our selected drop-off points back in Jo'burg or Pretoria or drop-off at Jo'burg's Oliver Tambo Int Airport, arriving at approx 6.00pm.
