We spend the next 2 nights in a comfortable Bush Tented Lodge in a private reserve within the greater Kruger National Park, an area where animals roam naturally and unrestricted. Being neighbours to the Kruger National Park, our tents are beautifully designed in order to blend in with our surrounds.

We make our way back to camp for an early afternoon brunch, after which we spend some time unwinding by the pool. In the afternoon we climb aboard an open vehicle in order to conduct a game drive that transforms into a lengthy, but thrilling, evening game drive.
