What to Expect

This 4-Day Kruger Safari will give you ample time to try and spot the famous Big 5 and some other elusive animals also. With a Sunset Game drive in a private reserve and a Full Day Safari in Kruger along with a leisure day and optional activities such as the Panorama route or additional game drives, you are sure to tick some animals off your list.

Transfers between Johannesburg and Kruger take 6 – 8 hours but follow a very scenic route through and also many stops along the way.

It will definitely be worth the ride though as we hope to get you up close to the animals within a private game reserve on your sunset game drive and also within Kruger on your full-day tour.

We do recommend the 5-day Kruger tour as ideal however if you do not have the time then this 4-day Safari will be a great opportunity for you to connect to nature and experience the magic of the world-famous Kruger National Park. If you are short on time you can hop on the 3-day Kruger Safari which will still give you excellent wildlife experiences in a short amount of time.
