Day 2 - 3

Kruger National Park, South Africa

We start our day with a bush walk before making your way to the Kruger National Park for a game drive in the truck. This evening we return to the camp and enjoy an evening game drive.

We spend the next full day in a 4×4 open top vehicle game driving in the Kruger, providing you with many incredible photographic opportunities, all the while keeping our eyes peeled for wildlife. Keep a lookout for Africa’s ‘Big 5’ (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo) as well as a wide range of other animal and bird species.

Formed in 1898 to guard the wildlife of the South African Lowveld, this National Park of almost two million hectares is unmatched in the variety of wildlife it boasts. The Kruger NP is also a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques and policies. About 145 mammal species, including the big Five, more than 500 bird species, some of which cannot be located anywhere else in South Africa, and 336 tree species can be found in the Kruger National Park.

When the very first tourist vehicles drove through the Park in 1927, they created their own camps in thorn-bush enclosures and were required to be armed with weapons in order to guard themselves from predators. During WWII, the Park was closed to the public and was then opened again in 1946, but under new management. Currently the Park is one of the most renowned safari destinations in the world with all the facilities you could expect from a top-notch holiday destination. However, it has thankfully maintained its wild, untouched environment that allows you to experience true Africa.

Day 4

Greater Kruger – Johannesburg, South Africa

Today we depart from the Kruger National Park and continue our travels back into Johannesburg. We journey along the incredible Panorama Route, stopping at Blyde River Canyon, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and God’s Window. Blyde River Canyon is the third biggest canyon in the world. Our tour comes to an end once we reach Johannesburg, the City of Gold, and we spend our final night together at a local restaurant, celebrating our tour.

The Panoramic Route found in Mpumalanga follows the rim of the Blyde River Canyon and encompasses some awe-inspiring views of the majestic Three Rondavels, Bourke’s Luck Pothole and the Pinnacle. Blyde River Canyon is the third largest canyon in the world and acquired its name in 1840, with ‘blyde’ meaning ‘joyful’, from the Voortrekkers who passed through en route to Lorenzo Marques, which is now famously known as Mozambique. It is one of the most magnificent canyons in all of Africa, with cliffs towering up to 800 metres high. Perhaps the finest view in the entirety of the Blyde River Canyon is that of the Three Rondavels – three enormous rock spirals jutting out of the distant wall of the canyon. Their summits look like the rounded roofs of huts, which is where they got their name. They are each individually named, one after each of the Swazi Chief Maripi’s wives. From lowest to highest, they are named Magabolle, Mogoladikwe and Maserote.

Where the Blyde and Treur Rivers join, water erosion has created one of the most incredible geological spectacles in the country, known as Bourke’s Luck Potholes. Over many, many years, bizarre cylindrical granite sculptures that have been formed by swirling water have created a sequence of dark pools which contrast dramatically with the streaked white and yellow lichen-covered rocks. Continuing along the road and following the Treur River south, we will pass more viewpoints, including Wonder View, the awesome God’s Window and the Pinnacle.

Johannesburg, or the ‘City of Gold’, is the biggest and most populated South African city and is the second biggest city in all of Africa (after Cairo). Gold was discovered in the mineral-rich Witwaterstrand in 1886 by George Harrison, an Australian prospector. This find began a massive gold rush as fortune-hunters flocked to the region from all parts of the world. A large labour force of contract workers quickly sprung to work in the mines, and within the span of just three years, Johannesburg transformed into South Africa’s biggest settlement. This city is the now the economic and financial centre of the country and though mining no longer takes place within the bounds of the city, the headquarters of the majority of mining businesses can be located here. Johannesburg is also renowned as the world’s biggest man-made forest, with more than ten million trees planted throughout the massive city.
