Kruger National Park tours

Ten night tour to Kruger National Park Game Reserve - Tours can be tailor made to suite your needs. From camping to luxury accommodation.
Mating lions
All tours are designed for private people and friends travelling together – no groups will be mixed with strangers. As all departure points and requirements are different, only the costs in the Park are included. Once the person/group arrives at Skakuza Airport (Kruger National Park), they will hire a vehicle suitable for the individual/group and the tour guide will drive them around all day finding and interpreting what is seen. All roads are suitable for any type of vehicle. At times certain gravel roads may be closed during heavy rains but there are plenty of tarred/paved roads on which to travel and game view.
Male Kudu
35 Years tour guide and environmental education experience is put into making this the trip of a lifetime.
Giraffe
Which Camps in the Park will be used on tours can vary according to how much time is allowed when booking but I try to get to at least 3 different ones as vegetation is different at each and so are the animals and birds found there.

When booking, please indicate if you have special interests such as birding.
Wild Dog
Tours can be tailored to suit your needs: bigger/small groups, longer/shorter periods. Please ask for a quotation. Ideally, groups should not be larger than 7 people for maximum enjoyment.

General

No meals are included but the small store in the Camps have a variety of things which can be purchased.

All Camps have restaurants where meals can be eaten.

All Camps have communal kitchens where you can prepare your own – crockery, cutlery, pots, pans etc. are available.

All Camps have communal bathrooms – if you are staying in a bungalow, it has its own bathroom.

It is recommended to bring a light jersey/jacket even in summer as well as rain gear, a hat, swimsuit in summer and sunscreen.

All electrical points are 220v so adaptors are needed.

Internet access is available at most Camps but can vary in strength.

Modems for the Internet plus data bundles can be bought at the point-of-entry airports.

White Rhino

Prices quoted are subject to change according to the exchange rate fluctuation.

50% Deposit is required on booking and the balance 30 days before arrival.

Special needs such as wheelchairs must be specified when booking as the rates on accommodation will be different.
 
Winters are mild and summers can be very hot but the best time of year to view game is from May to November. At the height of our summer season, December to April, the grass is tall and cuts down visibility and photographic opportunities.
All game viewing depends on being in the right place at the right time so there is no guarantee on what will be seen on each day. Generally, at least 20 different kinds of mammals and many birds species can be spotted on a daily basis.
A third person sharing accommodation can be added at additional costs.
