DAY 1

Cheetah Rehabilitation Centre

Dx1

Twin Share – En Suite

Leaving behind Johannesburg we head through the scenic province of Mpumalanga and check out a cheetah rehabilitation centre, a non for profit organisation, where we see the remarkable work done by volunteers trying to rehabilitate these cats and other wildlife. Travelling onwards, to a private game reserve bordering the Kruger National Park, we arrive at our traditional Ndebele ‘rondavel’ accommodation. These comfortable twin share, en suite rustic rooms will ensure a good nights sleep in preparation for our early start the following day. To further help us unwind we enjoy and evening of singing and dancing by the local Ndebele people, a colourful people who live in the northern South Arica and southern Zimbabwe.

DAY 2 - 3

Kruger National Park

Bx2 Lx2 Dx2

Pre Erected Tents – Bed & Bedding Provided

We rise early and transfer into our open safari vehicles for two full days in Kruger National Park. South Africa’s flagship game park the ‘Kruger’ has over 2 million hectares of unrivalled diversity of life forms fused with historical and archaeological sights. With cameras and binoculars at the ready, we explore the untamed wilderness on game drives, and hopefully we will see some of the Big 5 - elephant, rhino, leopard, lion and buffalo. The Kruger is home to over 505 species of birds, 148 species of mammals and many reptiles. The impressive atmosphere of the park enables you to understand why it holds such a unique place amongst the world’s great game reserves. We spend two nights here and campsite within the park, staying in pre erected tents with beds, bedding and small light. A typical day would be going ‘on safari’ in the early morning, returning to our camp for lunch and going out again. Whilst in the park, if available, you have the option of going on a guided night drive to view nocturnal animals in their natural habitat.
