Thousands of broken tree trunks are the proof of the passage of huge Elephant herds. The long neck of the giraffe breaks the round shape of the Acacia trees. The sleepy eyes of the Lion follow the nervousness of great buffalo herds. The magnificent Rhino trims the vegetation with has much gentleness as his size. Crocodiles, Hippos, Antelopes and many birds enrich a river that is already wealthy.

The night arrives and the comfort of Kruger Park infrastructures shakes the heat of a typical day in the African savannah.

In the morning, properly warmed by a hot coffee, you will realize that new trees felt to the weight of the Elephants. The giraffe’s swallows the humid leaves of the thorny acacias. The Lion hunted a buffalo that wasn’t aware of its danger. The rhino keeps on demanding fresh and green weed. The river, still filled with life, offers an opportunity to the ones that depend on them, to refresh themselves and kill the thirst.

The cycle repeats itself everyday. The only difference is being there or not.

  • The Driver will meet you early in the morning (05.00 Am) anywhere in Maputo. A light breakfast will be served on board of our vehicle while we drive to South Africa.
  • Once you enter one of the entry gates into the Kruger Park your afternoon safari begins and we’re off to search for the Big 5!
  • We’ll stop for lunch (own account) at one of the Rest camps in the Kruger Park and check into your Rondawels or Tent.
  • After lunch we’ll set off again in our open safari vehicles. The tiered seating offers the best viewing and photo opportunities.
  • Join your guide tonight for dinner, either in the restaurant or at your tented camp.
  • After dinner try some star-gazing! On a clear night there is a galaxy of stars waiting to amaze you! Snuggle up in your cozy bed and hear the symphony of animals as they communicate during the night! This is the way to feel at one with nature!
  • You will be up early this morning. Depending on the time of the year it can be as early as 04h30. The earlier you get going, the better your chances are of seeing animals, especially the big cats. But remember this is a huge wilderness area and it takes time to find animals.
  • At about 10h30 you’ll stop for brunch at one of the Rest camps in the Kruger Park or at a remote picnic spot. From mid-day the animals are taking a siesta and it is difficult to spot them resting under a tree or bush in the shade, so it is time for siesta for the humans too, or you can spend some time cooling off at the swimming pool. We’re off on another game drive later in the afternoon once things have cooled down and the animals start moving around again.
  • A delicious dinner awaits us again tonight, and you’re invited to spend some time around the fire with your guide to discuss the day’s sightings. Hopefully you’ll also hear the distant roar of a lion or the call of a Hyena!
  • It’s another early morning, and a last chance to enjoy game viewing with your guide to search for animals, big and small. It will also be your last brunch at about 10h30, before leaving the Kruger in time to meet your driver to return to Maputo at around 3.30 PM.
  • We are expected to arrive in Maputo at around 07:00 pm.
