Day 1: Johannesburg – Kruger Area

We  collect  you  from  your  hotel or  Johannesburg  Airport  and  travel  via  Dullstroom   to  Tremisana Game  Lodge.  There  you  board  an  open  Landcruiser  for  a  Sunset  Drive on this Big Five  Game Reserve.  After dark, spotlights are used to locate nocturnal animals. Dinner will be an unforgettable BUSH BRAAI in the Marula Tree Boma deep in the African bush. Continue with the night drive after dinner and overnight in an en suite chalet at Tremisana Lodge.


DAY 2 :  Kruger Area

Awaken at sunrise for an exhilarating day of unforgettable bush life.  Drive to a remote part of the Balule Game Reserve, where you enjoy a 4h Bush Walk.  Your experienced field guide will lead you through the bush. The thrill of following Africa’s large animals until you can take a photo will remain with you forever.  Adrenalin surges will be acute, notwithstanding the presence of your armed ranger. Return to Tremisana for brunch. At around 15h00 we go on an afternoon game drive.  Transfer to Marc’s Treehouse Lodge where accommodation is in fascinating and romantic treehouses.


DAY 3 : Kruger Area

We travel to the Kruger  Park where we board our open Gameviewer.  The absence of windows and elevated vantage position allow for excellent photographic opportunities. You will have an amazing chance not only to view game but also to listen to and smell the African bush and its denizens. There will be regular stops at picnic spots and rest camps. Your experienced ranger will show you many animals and birds that frequent this wildlife paradise.  The Orpen-Satara region boasts open plains and supports large herds of zebra, giraffe and antelope that attract numerous predators.


DAY 4 : Kruger Area -Johannesburg

Enjoy an early morning walk accompanied by an armed ranger. We then drive to the awesome Three Rondawels and the Blyde River Canyon. Return to Gauteng in the late afternoon. Airport dropoff by arrangement.
