What do we do?

Day 1
Your guide will meet you at the Johannesburg International Airport or at your hotel. You depart after breakfast or as soon as you have cleared customs and immigration.

Soon you leave the concrete jungle behind as you travel across the eastern Highveld towards Mpumalanga. The first two hours of your journey takes you past maize fields, grasslands, coal mines, power stations to the edge of the escarpment. As you decent down the escarpment you can sense the change in climate and see the vegetation changing. At Nelspruit you will pass through the subtropical Lowveld region and continue to Kruger Park.

(Frequent stops at convenience shops with clean rest rooms will be made along the way.) Your journey to your lodge will take approx 5hrs.

You will arrive at the lodge around mid-day - you have time to unpack, relax, put your feet up or scout the lodge environment. Mid afternoon is time for your first safari - search for Giraffe, Kudu, Zebra, etc.... and yes the BIG 5: Lion, Elephant, Rhino, Leopard and Buffalo.

Back at the lodge you enjoy a sundowner drink on the viewing deck overlooking the Sabie river, listen to the sounds of the African Bush. After a multi course restaurant dinner you can enjoy the stars that fill the African sky before heading to bed.

Meals: Dinner.

Day 2:
Your choice of either an early morning safari, returning to the lodge for breakfast;
A mid-morning safari, returning to the lodge around mid-day.

As you travel through the park your guide will share his knowledge about the history of the park, animals - big and small, birds and other creatures found in the park.

Remember: Because of the family focus of the safari you will have freedom of choice to stay longer at sightings that interest the children. Eg. They may enjoy looking at a troop of baboons and spend considerable time watching them play – no problem that is why our safaris are appreciated – private and flexible!

After lunch you will have some free time. Have a walk in the lodge gardens, spend some time bird watching, play with the kids, have a swim or relax on the safari deck with that special book…

Your afternoon safari will be around 15:30. Apart form searching for wildlife, you visit some waterholes, scenic stops and vista viewpoints - the ideal opportunity to take that picture that show the wide plains of Africa.

About our trip providers and reviews

Our Trip Providers

We carry out extensive company checks on all our providers, over 20 years we have built strong personal relationships with each of them, which assures you of an unparalleled service, great value and the trip of a lifetime.
We have participated in many of the trips found here (we have a nice job) and make our own independent assessments of the services provided, ensuring they meet with our own high standards.

All the trips are supplied by the end provider of that trip.
You may find the same or similar trips elsewhere, usually these are offered by an agent.
We prefer to give you direct access to the trip provider for reasons outlined below:

  1. Best price.
    The price you see here is the direct trip price set by the provider, the same price as purchasing directly with them (which is how it works), there are no added commissions.
    This means you are not paying an agents commission and the provider is receiving their fully budgeted trip cost.
    (agents can demand discounts from providers as well as adding commissions to the providers trip price)
  2. Easy customisation.
    By booking directly with the end provider, making changes is quick and easy.
  3. Fast problem solving.
    On the rare occasion that an issue may arise before or during your trip, by dealing directly with the end provider, problem solving is quick and efficient.
  4. Helping Africa help itself.
    The most straightforward way to assist the economic opportunities and conditions for local people across Africa, is by direct financial interaction with people in Africa. In a nutshell "Tourism".
    This kind of direct tourism gives opportunity to local people.

We limit the number of providers we work with in order to strike a balance between a good choice of trips and to be sure we can honestly recommend the service and validity of each provider.
Because the majority of trips can be customised by the providers, the choice of trip configurations is in the tens of thousands.

Our Reviews

We have 3,000+ reviews for our trips and providers.
All our reviews are fully qualified, we do not take unqualified reviews.
We show all reviews, the good and the critical (very few). Our providers have the ability to respond to reviews and those responses are shown alongside the review.
Acquiring genuine reviews is actually very hard, for our genuine travellers we make this an easy process but many people although satisfied with the service they received do not leave a review.

Many reviews on the internet can be left by an open process with little or no checks.
At best unqualified reviews are worthless, at worst they are misleading. We never take unqualified reviews.

We hope you find a trip to your liking and we are here to assist.

Wishing you happy travels...
