Itinerary

ARRIVAL JOHANNESBURG – HAZYVIEW (405 km – 4.5 h)

Early in the morning, at 6:00 am, you will be picked up from the O.R. Tambo International Airport or nearby airport hotels. Meet and greet by our tour representative who will assist you with the transfer in a shared coach towards Hazyview, the Gateway to the Kruger National Park. The route takes us from the Johannesburg Highveld through the picturesque valleys of the Mpumalanga Lowveld. We arrive at the lodge in Hazyview approximately at 12:00 pm. Check-in to your lodge and spend the rest of the day at leisure. Hazyview is a small farming town and is renowned for its banana industry. It is known as the gateway to the Kruger National Park and is ideally situated to explore the Panorama Route. Golfers find many beautiful golf courses in the area. You can choose between many activities available at the lodge, from hot air ballooning, quad biking, to river rafting and superb hiking trails. Enjoy dinner there before settling down for your first night in Africa.

A spellbinding experience awaits you this morning. Head out to explore Kruger National Park, often thought of as the world’s largest wildlife zoo. Wake up early in the morning, before sunrise and jump into a safari jeep with a specialized wildlife ranger-guided and drive over to Kruger Park for your very first safari experience. You will start driving visiting various water holes, lookout points & rivers. You will have your breakfast packed by the lodge at a local rest camp/picnic venue, after which thrilling game drive continues and, like completing a wildlife bingo, you will try to spot all of Africa's highly sought-after Big Five: elephant, lion, rhino, leopard and buffalo. You will make two stops during the day, one for breakfast (packed breakfast by the lodge; included) and another for lunch (not included), at different rest camps throughout the safari. That way you will be able to take advantage of your time in the game reserve to the fullest and make sure you don’t miss any animal you were longing to see in its natural habitat. You will be driven back to the lodge in the late afternoon, at around 4:00 pm. The rest of the day is free for you to spend at leisure until dinner is served.
