Private Luxury Small Group Kruger safari
Meet and Greet – arrival day
You will be collected from Nelspruit airport and transferred by our preferred private road transfer to the Kruger. After settling into your cottage you will get onto our open-sided safari game viewing vehicle for your first gamedrive.
Berg-en-Dal hosts white rhino, kudu, impala, giraffe, some elephant, reedbuck, klipspringer, grey rhebok and warthog.
Leopard and wild dog are regularly seen in the region. Lion are usually found in the lower plains on the roads to Skukuza and Crocodile Bridge. Bird watchers will find the appeal of the camp irresistible as a wide variety of birds species can be seen here. The swimming pool is the perfect place to cool off in the heat of the day.
Accommodation is a private en-suite cottage under thatch (including fresh linen and towels) that sleeps one to two people, near to where animals are often seen walking in the river to bed towards the dam.
Skukuza restcamp is named after the Tsonga name for James Stevenson-Hamilton, the first warden of the park. Literally translated it means 'he who sweeps clean', a reference to his removal of all the local people to make way for the establishment of the Park. The Stevenson-Hamilton Memorial Museum houses many interesting artifacts – very well known is the knife ranger Harry Wolhuter used to single-handedly slay a Lion and save his own life.
Skukuza is the Kruger National Park's largest rest camp and is situated on the southern banks of the Sabie River. Skukuza Restcamp is home to some interesting birds and amazing plant life.
Accommodation consists of a one-bedroomed private en-suite unit that is serviced (fresh linen and towels) and that sleeps two people.
Situated in an excellent game viewing area, Satara has relatively open bushland and the game is plentiful and diverse. Satara camp itself has a rustic charm, with the accommodation set out in a series of circles. Satara camp 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. Owls and nightjars add to the symphony that is punctuated by the whoop of hyena, the screech of jackal and the roar of lion.
Accommodation consists of an en-suite cottage with two beds (includes fresh linen and towels).
In all locations your guide Neil and Alistair, his chef, will stay close by and host hospitality and mealtimes from their cottage.
We always fit in an early morning game drive, and of course, a hearty breakfast before departure back to Nelspruit airport.
