Tour Overview

The Kruger Park boasts 450 bird species. The Big 6 — Kori bustard, Martial eagle, Saddle-billed stork, Lappet faced vulture, Pel’s fishing owl and Ground hornbill. There are over 3 times more bird species in the game reserve than there are mammals. So, you’ll see birds without even trying. They’re in the bush, at rest camps and picnic spots scavenging for food. They’re swimming in the lakes, wading in the dams and walking along the riverbanks. We shall be staying in two camps one in the Southern Kruger and at our special Waterhole lodge.

  • Small groups.

The truth is that the more time you spend on safari, the more time you’ll have to see something
