Experience the magic of the Kruger National Park with us on a 5 Day Kruger Park Camping Safari. All our Kruger Park Safaris of 5 days or longer include a bush walk, allowing you to get really close to nature! On a 5 Day Kruger Safari you can hope to spot a wide variety of animals, including not only the Big 5, but also kudu, bush buck, hyena, wild dog, cheetah and many birds such as African fish eagle, pied kingfishers, ground hornbills and so much more!
5 Day Kruger Park Camping Safari:
Camping in Kruger National Park has never been this good. Fall asleep while being serenaded by the roar of lions and sounds of nature. Spacious dome tents, linen, towels and guest amenities provided. Shared ablutions close by. Scrumptious 2 course Breakfasts and 3 course Dinners with wine included. Morning and afternoon game activity as per itinerary.
Day 1: Gauteng – Kruger Park
We depart from Johannesburg between 06h30 – 08h00 to allow for various collection points. Our route takes us through the wide open spaces of the Highveld, down the escarpment and through the scenic Lowveld area. We stop for lunch en-route (own expense) and reach the Kruger National Park and Skukuza Rest Camp in the afternoon.After settling in to our accommodations, you go out on your first game drive which is a SAN PARKS sunset drive. A sunset drive affords you the opportunity to see nocturnal animals that are more active at night and the Park’s rangers are allowed to return after the normal gate closing times. Note that these drives take place in one of the Kruger Park’s vehicles with a Park’s ranger. This is not a private game drive and there may be other guests on this drive. (Children under 6 years of age are not permitted on open vehicle drives.) Dinner is a three course meal, served al fresco at our private camp within Skukuza. Wine is served with dinner but guests are welcome to bring along additional / alternative drinks which can be purchased at the shop.
Day 2, 3 & 4: Full day in the Park
Safaris are all about early mornings, getting out there and seeing animals! After an early wake-up call (the time varies according to the seasons and park gate opening times) we have tea or coffee & rusks (dried biscuits to be dunked in your drink!) We then set off on the morning safari which will take approximately 3-4 hours. Your guide has an intimate knowledge of the park, which contributes a great deal towards brilliant sightings! On returning to Skukuza, breakfast/brunch will be ready at our camp. You then have time to enjoy a swim, visit the Skukuza museum, catch up on some sleep, visit the park shop which includes African curios, general food items and drinks, take a walk around the camp, or simply relax at the viewing platform in front of the restaurant, which overlooks the Sabie River. Skukuza is also a bird watcher’s paradise! Be sure to bring along your binoculars! After a siesta we set off on the afternoon game drive. We conduct all our game drives in specially adapted 4×4 open game drive vehicles to allow our guests the best possible vantage point. We include a SAN Parks Bush walk for all our guests spending 5 days or more with us. These walks are also conducted by a Parks ranger and there may be other guests joining this activity. (Children under 12 years of age are not permitted on bush walks). The Bush walk takes place very early in the morning & you will not be joining our morning game drive on this day. A Bush walk allows guests to really get close to nature! Although you may encounter some animals, you should note that the purpose of such a walk is not game viewing, but rather exploring other aspects of nature. Please remember to pack comfortable walking shoes.We share safari stories at the camp fire under the stars after a scrumptious dinner served at our camp.
Meals: Breakfast & Dinner
Day 5: Kruger Park – Johannesburg
The sun rises over our final day in the Park and we have one last chance to find the animals that have eluded us thus far. After breakfast we return to Johannesburg. The drive back takes at least 6 hours and guests are advised to sleep over in Johannesburg on this night.
Optional Excursion (free of charge)
We offer an optional excursion to visit select attractions along the Panorama Route on all our Kruger Safaris of 3 days or longer. We stop in one of the small towns en-route for breakfast (included) and visit attractions such as the Blyde River Canyon, Three Rondavels, Lisbon Waterfalls and God’s Window. We return to Skukuza at around 11h00. This excursion is available free of charge, replaces one of the morning drives and will be coordinated by our staff while you are on safari with us. (Kindly note that this excursion is not available on the first or last day of you Safari due to time constraints)
Accommodation for this Camping Trip:
Spacious dome tent equipped with beds, mattresses, duvets, pillows, towels & soap for all Camping guests (Skukuza only). Ablutions are shared and serviced very regularly. Guests are reminded to bring along a flashlight.
