Kruger National Park was proclaimed in 1898 and later extended to its present size of approximately 19,000 square km or 8,000 square miles. Where nearly 2 million hectares of the unrivalled diversity of life forms fuses with historical and archaeological sites - this is real Africa.
This Safari is an excellent choice for people who want to enjoy spectacular scenery at the Mpumalanga Panorama Route, combined with game drives to see the renowned big five (elephant, rhinoceros, lion, leopard and buffalo).

You will then visit the Berlin Falls, where numerous local arts and crafts are for sale.

Dinner at the restaurant.
Location: Kruger National Park Boundary Road
You will leave after breakfast to take a boat trip on the Blyde Dam. An interpretation tour will take you to the Kadishi Tufa waterfall and the Three Rondawels. An abundance of wildlife will keep you distracted while learning more about the natural history of the Blyde Canyon. The Kadishi Tufa waterfall, at 200 meters (around 660 feet) in height, is the second tallest Tufa Waterfall on earth. The waterfall’s formation strikingly resembles a face which is crying profusely, and is thus sometimes known as ‘the weeping face of nature’. Completing this, you will head to the heart of the Kruger National Park through the Orpen gate, watching game as you head to the Satara Rest Camp. (Lunch en-route not included, restaurants available) The Satara Rest Camp is situated in an excellent game viewing area, with the bush relatively open and the animals plentiful and diverse. The camp itself has a rustic charm, with the bulk of the accommodation set out in a series of circles. Satara is well wooded and the bird-life is prolific. At night the clink of fruit bats is fused with the chirping of cicadas and crickets. The calls of owls and night-jars add to the symphony that is punctuated intermittently by the whoop of hyena, the screech of jackal and the roars of lion. Enjoy a Sunset Game Drive which transitions into the night where you can see the nocturnal activities of Kruger's secretive creatures, and lasts at least 3 hours. Dinner at the restaurant follows. Overnight in a bungalow or cottage at the Satara Rest Camp, or similar.
Starting the game drive in our own vehicle early after coffee on the way out of the park, you explore every possible opportunity to view the spectacular wildlife scenery. Chances are excellent to spot a variety of some of the estimated number of animals: Lion, 1 620 – 1750, Leopard, 1 000, Cheetah, 120, Wild dog, 120, Spotted hyena, 5340, Elephant, 13 750, Burchell's zebra, 23 700 - 35 300, Hippopotamus, 3 100, Warthog, 3 100 - 5 700, Giraffe, 6 800 - 10 300, Buffalo, 37 130, Eland, 460, Roan antelope, 90, Sable antelope, 290, Greater kudu, 11 200, etc. (Brunch en-route, restaurants available) After a 150 km game drive, we return back to Johannesburg via Nelspruit (Mbombela).
