Kruger National Park, South Africa
We travel up to the world famous Kruger National Park and begin with a game drive in our truck. We will spend the day driving through the national park in our truck, which gives us an elevated view to spot wildlife. Most of the day will be spent driving through the park. The Activity Package offers the the opportunity to experience Kruger in an open 4×4 safari vehicle. You have a second opportunity to enjoy an optional game drive this evening.
The following morning starts earlier for those wanting to do an optional morning walk while the rest of the day is spent travelling through the incredible Panorama Route, making stops at the Blyde River Canyon, God’s Window and Bourke’s Luck Potholes before returning back to the camp in the afternoon.
Set up in 1898 in order to protect the wildlife of the South African Lowveld, the Kruger National Park (of almost 2 million hectares) is unmatched in the variety of animal species it contains and is a world leader in advanced environmental techniques and policies. The Park is home to approximately 145 species of mammal, more than 500 bird species (some of which are strictly indigenous to South Africa) and approximately 336 different tree species.
In 1927, when the first tourists visited the Park, they carried weapons and set up their own camps in areas surrounded by thorn bushes in order to guard themselves from predators. Throughout World War II, the Park was closed to the public and was then re-opened under new management in 1946. Currently, the Kruger National Park is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the entire world, complete with the facilities one could expect from any top holiday destination. However, it has still managed to maintain an untouched environment that provides you with a truly ‘African’ experience.
