Full Day Game Drives

Full day game drives give visitors with limited time the opportunity to pack a lot of thrilling game viewing into a single day. Your day will start with an early (5.30 – 6.00am) pickup at the gate closest to your camp or lodge.

Once inside the park you can enjoy varied game viewing as we make our way to one of the Kruger National Park camps where we will stop for breakfast (usually supplied by your camp or lodge).

After breakfast we will move further into the park as we attempt to show you as much wildlife as possible. All our safari vehicles are linked by radio, to ensure that we know where any particularly interesting sightings have occurred. After lunch at another camp we will gradually make our way back to your drop-off point allowing time for a comfort stop at a camp or picnic site along the way.

Here the guests usually have breakfast (before 09h00) which is packed by their Hotel and they have a chance to browse through the shop. After Breakfast we continue with the game drive and en route we try to show guests as much as possible – our guides all have extensive knowledge and are always happy to share it and this will enhance the experience!

Experience nature first hand!

We pick up the guests from the predetermined point early morning and transfer them to a Big 5 Private Game Reserve. Here they are accompanied by armed and experienced game rangers that have the necessary qualifications in bush walks, dangerous game and advanced weapon handling. As the day breaks, guests are briefed about the basic rules of participating in a Bush Walk as well as the dangers involved.

The Rangers will introduce a number of skills to the guests including tracking, animal behaviour, identification, plants and trees.

A maximum of 8 guests is allowed on a bush walk, as a smaller group is easier to control and manage. It consists of a 3-hour walk in a Big 5 area and the emphasis is also on the smaller things that one usually misses when on an open safari vehicle!

Larger groups can also be accommodated by splitting them in to smaller groups of 8.

Panorama Route

Take a scenic drive to experience the beauty of the “Panorama Route” in the Blyderiver Canyon, which is 60 km long and is the third largest canyon in the world. There are a few viewpoints (God’s Window, The Pinnacle, The Three Rondawels) along the edge of the escarpment offering excellent views of the Blydedam, canyon and the river 600 m below.

The Berlin Falls can be reached by means of a foot path along the river where the water from the Berlin Creek falls down a 150 m drop into a large pool. The Lisbon Falls are at the point where the Blyderiver splits and large pools are formed before the water cascades over the sheer cliff to a pool 92 m below.

The Bourke’s Luck Potholes are deep cylindrical holes formed by the action of the sand and rock carried down by the river when in flood. Visitors can obtain a close view from bridges specially constructed over the potholes. Also visit the historic town of Pilgrim’s rest which is now a National Monument. It was established in 1873 when the first significant gold strike in South Africa was made.
