Day 2: Full Day Open Vehicle Safari in Kruger National Park

All safaris commence before sunrise, taking advantage of Mpumalanga’s status as the “place of the rising sun” as the first province in South Africa to witness the sunrise. This early part of the day, filled with anticipation, is the best time for wildlife encounters. After a short drive to the park, we enter through its gates, and your guide will have insights into the best areas to spot wildlife, including the Big 5 and plains game. This period offers the best opportunity to see predators in action.

The lodge will arrange breakfast packs, and after approximately 3 hours of safari, your guide will make a stop for breakfast, restroom breaks, and a chance to enjoy coffee. The safari will continue, exploring Kruger’s diverse ecological zones, each with its unique range of wildlife. We will visit rivers, watering holes, plains, and Bushveld regions.

Lunch will be at a rest camp, offering a variety of dishes and an opportunity for curio shopping or enjoying a cold beverage.

Today, we depart from the lodge before sunrise, once again experiencing the thrill of the early morning safari.

The lodge will arrange breakfast packs, and after about 3 hours of safari, there will be a breakfast and restroom stop with the opportunity for coffee. We will continue exploring Kruger’s various ecological zones, including rivers, watering holes, plains, and Bushveld regions. The vastness of Kruger means that guides can cover different areas of the park each day.

Lunch will be at a different rest camp, offering various dining options and a chance for shopping or enjoying a cold beer. The safari will then proceed towards the lodge, with an anticipated arrival time of around 3:30 pm to 4:00 pm.
