Leaving Nelspruit when the birds awaken, 5am we travel to Kruger, where we eagerly seek out the 140 mammals that have Kruger as their neighbourhood as well as the Big Five that also reside in Kruger. After game spotting we are rewarded with a leisurely breakfast at one of Kruger’s idyllic picnic spots before we find our way to a rest camp, a camp in Kruger for a bit of well deserved rest and relaxation in your bungalow.
Awakening we head out on a 3 hour night drive, that is hosted by one of Kruger’s expert game rangers. On our return we experience a truly South African braai under the incredibly beautiful African skies as the stars shine down, creating the most stunning ambience.
Day two we arise early as the animals awaken after a fitful nights’ sleep and make our way out the park over a three hour period as we tick off those animals not yet spotted.
We leave the memories of Kruger firmly in our minds as we welcome our stunning stay over in a private lodge, situated in either, Sabie Sands, Timbavati or Thornybush.
On arrival we are given a truly royal welcome and experience the undeniable pleasure and true comfort of a game drive in an open 4×4 game vehicle that dares to get a lot closer to the game than in Kruger, as no private vehicles are permitted into the reserve. Once game spotting is completed we retreat to our luxury accommodation and indulge in superb meals and discover a different outlook of conservation, noticing the differences in this reserve to that of Kruger.
Day three after sleeping like royalty we awaken early to the sounds of the animals beginning a new day. We head on out for a last early morning game drive (or if possible a game walk). Once gaming is complete we take a leisurely drive up into the Small Drakensberg Mountain range, where the exquisite sights such as God’s Window, Lisbon Falls, Bourkes Luck potholes which is the world’s third largest and only growing canyon, the Blyde Canyon awaits us.
Once we have captured these awesome sights on camera/video. We have a well deserved lunch at Harries Pancakes, famous for their delicious selection of mouth watering pancakes.
Once we have taken the perfect set of photo’s to place in our Brag Book when we return home, we complete a perfect day with a perfect pancake from Harries Pancakes, renowned for their delicious selection of pancakes.
