15 days in northern Kruger

Our 15-day private small group (max 6) safari itineraries in the magnificent Kruger National Park in South Africa have become extremely popular and sought after experiences of African wildlife interpretations and spectacular photography opportunities.

Accommodated in en-suite and air-conditioned single roomed or family roomed cottages, this safari itinerary combines the best of the Kruger National Park with 5-star guiding and hosting.

Your guide has travelled half million kms of the Kruger roads taking more than 2 000 international guests into this great and diverse big 5 wildlife reserve for more than 20 years, his passion, experience, training and knowledge of the biology, the behaviour and the ecology of the Kruger combined with his extensive knowledge and passion for wildlife photography turns your trip to the Kruger National Park into an unparalleled experience of African wildlife.

Your guide and his chef host and entertain your group with stories of the bush, a great sense of humour, compassion and professionalism, they combine 5 star hosting and guidance with fantastic South African outdoor cuisine and wildlife experiences, photography and interpretations.

We host these 15-day experiences of the Kruger National Park every month during the March – November seasons which include best opportunities to see the Kruger National Park at its very best.
Scientists, honeymoon couples and families wanting to combine a lot of laughs, plenty of education and stunning wildlife in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see one of Africa’s greatest natural spaces should seriously consider this itinerary:

Meet and Greet – arrival day
Our road transfer fetch you at Phalaborwa airport and drive you into Kruger. After settling into your cottage you will get onto our open-sided safari game viewing vehicle for your first afternoon gamedrive.

Mopani restcamp/ (restcamp/northernKruger) (1 night)
Huddled against and overlooking the banks of the dam, visitors can take advantage of the winter trend for park animals to move towards water sources as they migrate towards the dam's edge, providing excellent viewing opportunities.

Shingwedzi (restcamp / northern Kruger) (3 nights)
In the midst of a peaceful clearing along the Shingwedzi River, set within two adjacent rings are the camp's accommodation bungalows. Guests will stay in the en-suite comfortable air-conditioned rooms.

Pafuri Border Camp (restcamp / northern Kruger) (2 nights)
Crooks Corner, the infamous point of connection of three countries, played a role in the colourful recent past of the area. Accommodation is in the private Mockford House that sleeps 8 people in 4 bedrooms – three of them en-suite. The guest house boasts a braai area, camp swimming pool, veranda, lounge and dining room.

bold]Sirheni (bushveld lodge / northern Kruger) (3 nights)
Sirheni Bushveld Camp is located on the edge of the Kruger National Park’s northern plains. Running past to the Mphongolo River's Sirheni Dam, the camp's accommodation facilities and two bird hides survey a wide variety of passing game and birds.

Letaba restcamp (north Kruger) (2 nights)
The idyllic Letaba Rest Camp is situated on a sweeping bend of the Letaba River, midway between the southern and northern boundaries of the Kruger National Park, South Africa.

Roodewal Bush Lodge (bush lodge/northern Kruger) (2 nights)
Situated 44km north of Satara, on the banks of the Timbavati River, Roodewal is unique as it features the privacy of each individual sleeping unit, that makes it ideal for small groups who want total privacy. The whole camp can be occupied by the party that makes the booking, and the units are spaced to offer privacy to each guest. Another lovely feature at Roodewal Bush Lodge in Kruger is the private viewing deck, built on stilts which overlooks the Timbavati River.

Orpen restcamp (restcamp/north western Kruger) (1 night)
The area around the camp allows for watchings the nomadic Senegal (Lesser Black-winged) Plover, and, on a few occasions, Montagu's Harrier. White-faced and Comb (Knob-billed) Ducks, Little Grebe (Dabchick) and Lesser Moorhen, African Rail and African Crake, as well as Wooly-necked, Marabou, Open-billed (African Openbill), White and Black storks may all be seen in the camp and surrounding areas.

In all locations your guide and chef will stay close by and host hospitality and mealtimes from their cottage.

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...
