Day 1 : Johannesburg – Punda Maria Restcamp
You will be picked up from your Hotel or Johannesburg International
Airport by your guide.
We head to the Limpopo Province passing through the Panorama Route for a quick stop before we head to Pafuri. Enter the Kruger National Park at the Pafuri Gate in the afternoon for an afternoon Game Drive before we book in at Punda Maria Restcamp. We overnight in Bungalows for the night and enjoy dinner at the restaurant. Punda Maria Restcamp is situated in the Sandveld region that is often described as the botanical garden of the Kruger National Park. There are numerous plant species which occur that are unique to the area. Game species most likely to be sighted include impala, zebra, buffalo, elephant, eland and sable and the area is a bird paradise.

Day 2: Pafuri Restcamp – Mopani Restcamp
06:00 am. Be packed and ready to leave Crocodile Bridge for an early morning game drive before we book in at Lower Sabie Restcamp and have some breakfast. After breakfast we get some refreshments and snacks and leave the Restcamp for a full day game drive. Lower Sabie graces the banks of the Sabie River, one of the few perennial rivers to flow through the Kruger National Park. Visitors cannot but feel soothed by the view towards the river and the Lebombo Mountains beyond. In this rest camp, the bounty and plenitude of nature are very evident, eloquently symbolised by the most conspicuous of its numerous trees, the mighty sycamore fig, which provides generously for the livelihood of many birds and insects. Not only do these giants produce fruit at least twice a year, but different trees produce fruit at different times, extending the gifts of life over many months. Watching the endless procession of animals coming to drink at the Sabie River establishes a sense of one’s own place in the eternal cycle. We head back to Lower Sabie before the gates closed for the night. Dinner will be enjoyed at the restaurant or if preferred a barbeque at the campfire listening to the sounds of the night. We overnight in Safari tents which consists of 2 single beds, a ceiling fan, a fridge, kitchenette, Utensils, Wc and shower.

Day 3: Mopani Restcamp – Satara Restcamp
Breakfast at the restaurant before we leave Mopani for a full
day game drive before we book in at Satara Rest Camp for the night. We overnight in Bungalows and enjoy dinner at the restaurant.

Satara is a busy camp, and not without reason. It is situated in an excellent game viewing area, with the bush relatively open and the animals plentiful and diverse. The camp itself has a rustic charm, with the bulk of the accommodation set out in a series of circles. Satara is well wooded and the bird-life is prolific. At night the clink of fruit bats is fused with the chirping of cicadas and crickets. The calls of owls and nightjars add to the symphony that is punctuated intermittently by the whoop of hyena, the screech of jackal and the roars of lion.

Day 4: Satara Restcamp – Skukuza Restcamp
Breakfast first at the restaurant before we leave Satara for Skukuza , the head camp in the Park. Skukuza is the Kruger National Park’s largest rest camp and administrative headquarters. It is situated on the southern banks of the Sabie River. The camp is well foliaged and there are some lofty trees along the river’s edge. Activities and facilities are diverse, as are the animals and plants found both within the camp and in the surrounding areas. Dinner will be at the restaurant.
