Early morning wake-up call, time to enjoy some early morning tea, coffee, and rusks prior to departing on your game drive. The day starts early in the Kruger National Park with gates opening early depending on the time of the year.

Breakfast is enjoyed at either your camp where you are staying or at one of the many picnic areas found in the park. After breakfast, we continue our game viewing, stopping off at water holes, following river lines, and making our way back to camp during the heat of the day in summer October to April giving you time for a light lunch and then allowing you to relax, swim, read your book or enjoy a siesta. In winter we can stay out a bit longer from May to September. We depart once again three hours before sunset for our afternoon safari, returning to camp before gate closing time. Dinner is prepared by your guides.
