ITINERARY
Day 1  Arrival

This guided safari departs 08h00 from a location of your choosing in Johannesburg. This drive follows the N4 scenic highway crossing the Highveld. We'll pass the vibrant town of Nelspruit before we arrive in good time at our authentic safari semi-luxury tented lodge in the wild Manyeleti. A quick lunch will be had on route. Pungwe Bush Camp is set in the lower Manyeleti Game Reserve. The Manyeleti is situated away from the mainstream tourist areas. Guests can experience the tranquility of an African safari in seclusion. The reserve shares unfenced borders with the Kruger NP which allows for free movement of wildlife. As such, you can be sure to only experience the best game viewing possible. This is prime “Big Five” territory, offering exceptional good possibilities for viewing the elusive leopard. After check-in, take a dip in the pool or laze around. Get ready for your exciting guided game drive on an open safari vehicle. A lovely dinner to be had in this great bush setting!

Meals: B,L,D
Accommodation: Pungwe Safari Camp

Day 2  Kruger National Park

You'll be treated to a morning guided safari walk and breakfast in the wild Manyeleti after which we venture into the Kruger proper. Every minute spent in the Kruger driving is world-class game driving territory. En route to our air-conditioned bungalows in Letaba, we stop at a picnic spot for a freshly prepared lunch. Keep your eyes open here for game. The idyllic Letaba Rest Camp overlooks a sweeping bend of the Letaba riverbed. From camp, one can often see game lining for a drink. The rest camp has an interesting natural museum dedicated to the colossal elephants of the Letaba area. This area is still known for its huge elephants! In the afternoon take a dip in the pool or enjoy the tranquil surroundings of camp. Enjoy a sunset game drive or sundowners at camp. Tonight you'll enjoy a delicious 3-course BBQ dinner (braai) while sipping on some good South African wine (or something else perhaps) around the fire. A great area to spot elusive leopard, rare roan, crocodiles and hippos.

Meals: B,L,D
Accommodation: Letaba Restcamp

Day 3  Kruger National Park

This day starts off with early morning coffee & rusks before we head out on a morning game-drive in search of predators and the iconic birdlife of the Kruger. On return to Letaba, a continental and full bush breakfast are served. After getting our things ready we head to the next rest camp, Satara. Satara is the Kruger's 3rd largest camp, situated in an excellent game viewing area. This is the only area in the Kruger where you might see the rare 'white lions'. The terrain here consists of open savanna which insures good sightings. Animal sightings close to the camp gates are quite common too. The hooting of owls, calling of nightjars, and the whooping sound of hyena add to the mysterious night sounds here. Lunch will be had en route to Satara Rest Camp. After check-in, enjoy the pool and camp surroundings. A late afternoon game-drive at Satara awaits. Freshen up and relax on return before you are headed on an exciting night game drive (included). BBQ dinner is served thereafter.

Meals: B,L,D
Accommodation: Satara Restcamp

Day 4  Departure

After breakfast, we leave Satara and enjoy a last game drive to the exit-gate of the Kruger. In the rugged mountains of the Great Escarpment of the Drakensberg, the plateau comes to an abrupt and dramatic halt, falling steeply away into the Lowveld, accompanied by incredible views over the grasslands of Africa. We snake along the Panorama Route affording incredible Blyde River Canyon views from a height of 1219 m, revealing the Blyde River cutting its way through lush valleys below. This route follows graceful waterfalls like the Sabie -, Bridal Veil - & Mac Mac Falls. You'll be stunned with the heavenly views from God's Window and Three Rondavels viewpoints (entrance fees included). Lunch to be had en route to Johannesburg. This Big 5 Five Kruger Safari Tour ends in Johannesburg at around 18h00, or subject to your time schedule, later or earlier. Drop-off at the airport or any location in Johannesburg. You'll return with lovely memories from a African safari experience.
