Our 4-day Kruger and Sabi Sand Safari begins with pick up from Johannesburg O R Tambo International Airport or your pre-tour accommodation, Nelspruit or Skukuza Airports.
Heading towards the world-famous Greater Kruger Park in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle, we leave the vibrant city of Johannesburg behind.
We travel northeast to Tydon Safari Camp, situated in a peaceful bush setting at the Shaw’s Gate entrance of the renowned Sabi Sand Game Reserve.
Arriving at Tydon Safari Camp there is time to freshen up before we venture into the bush on our first exhilarating sunset game drive in Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve. The Sabi Sand Reserve is best known for its exceptional leopard sightings and close-up wildlife encounters.
All of our game drives on this Kruger Park & Sabi Sand Safari are conducted in open 4×4 safari vehicles.
After our thrilling sunset to night game drive we make our way back to the safari camp, arriving after dark. At the lantern-lit camp a welcoming campfire awaits you in the boma area.
Quench your thirst with some pre-dinner drinks around the open campfire, before tucking into a tasty dinner. The evening meal is served either in the outdoor boma under the stars or in the thatch-covered dining area.
Unwind beside the flickering campfire at the end of your first action-packed day on safari in Greater Kruger, or retreat to your comfortable tented room for a good night’s rest.
