At a glance: Kruger Day Trip
Our day trip to the Kruger National Park is the perfect way to see the best of the world-famous Kruger in one day. The Kruger National Park lies in the heart of the Lowveld and is South Africa’s largest game reserve; the tenth biggest in the world. The park has nearly two million hectares of unfenced African wilderness, in which more mammal species roam free than in any other game reserve (almost 150 species).
The Kruger has excellent infrastructure and offers visitors fantastic Big 5 sightings and birdwatching of over 500 bird species. This world-renowned park offers an exhilarating wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa.
Our qualified guides have years’ worth of experience in the park. They love nothing more than to share their knowledge with our guests and to make sure that you have the best safari experience possible.
How it works
Our team will pick up guests early in the morning from where they are staying. Game viewing is best before it gets too hot. Kruger Park gate times vary throughout the year, but most pick-ups will be at around 5am depending on where you are staying.
We can arrange pick up from your accommodation venue in Nelspruit, Malelane, Marloth Park, Hazyview, or even from your rest camp inside Kruger if you are already in the park. We can also arrange to pick up guests at all the Kruger Park entrance gates in southern Kruger.
We will embark on our trip in our custom-built open safari vehicle which afford all guests great comfort and the optimal view of animals, especially the Big 5!
Your guide will focus on finding you the best in the Park. These include the majestic Big 5, different types of antelope, Giraffe, Hippopotamus, Nile Crocodiles and many others. Your guide will also show you many different kinds of interesting local birds, like hornbills, eagles, the famous Secretarybird, colourful rollers, along with many different water birds. Learning about the trees, insects and general bush and nature around you is also on the cards.
We will stop at picnic spots and rest camps throughout the day for breakfast, lunch and restroom breaks.
Pick up at around 05:00 am from October to March and at 05:30 am from April to September.
Drop off between 16h00-17h00 pm.
These times can be adjusted according to your personal needs and situation.
