3 Day Kruger National Park and Crocodile River Safari

3 days
About this activity

Day 1: Johannesburg to Crocodile River

Stop At: Malelane Gate, Kruger National Park, Malelane - Skukuza Rd, Malelane 1320 South Africa
You will depart from the Tambo International Airport on a shuttle transporting you through to the City of Nelspruit where a driver will meet you and privately transport you to Hamilton's Lodge. After checking-in you will take a walk onto the Crocodile River Bridge. The bridge is actually in the Kruger National Park where you can safely stand and see animals such as crocodiles and hippos in the river and other animals coming to drink. Later in the day you will take part in a sunset game drive, returning later in the evening for dinner at the lodge (Dinner will be at your own cost; choosing from the a la carte menu which caters for most tastes). Enjoy the sights and sounds of the bush and connect with nature all around you as you relax under the African stars on the lodge's open deck, take a late evening swim, buy a drink from the bar and then turn in for the night.
Duration: 16 hours

No meals included on this day.
Accommodation included: Hamiltons Lodge, Bed and Breakfast

Day 2: Kruger National Park

Stop At: Kruger National Park, Malalan Gate, Nelspruit 1350 South Africa
You will rise before dawn and go for a sunrise safari with an experienced park ranger. This is a special time of day as the Kruger awakens and comes to life. Dawn is the busiest time of the day for wildlife viewing. Watch the iconic Fish Eagles cry as they soar along the river. Hopefully there will be a matriarchal herd of mother elephant and their babies or a savage but necessary lion kill, perhaps a majestic bull elephant and a herd of stern looking African buffalo. You will return to the lodge for breakfast and then spend the rest of the day at your leisure. There are optional choices like a visit to a local town, a private tour that offers elephant or horse back safaris, microlight flights over the reserve and nature walks or again you may just feel like relaxing and having lunch at the lodge. Later in the evening you will return to Hamilton's Lodge for dinner at your own cost and your overnight stay.
Duration: 1 day

• Breakfast
Accommodation included: Hamiltons Lodge, Bed and Breakfast

Day 3: Kruger National Park to Johannesburg

Stop At: Kruger National Park, Malalan Gate, Nelspruit 1350 South Africa
You will rise early for your last safari drive at dawn, with the choice of either a morning game drive or a safari walk. Arrangements need to be made in advance - you must let us know a week or two at least before your trip. A walk in the bush gives an entirely different perspective to the area than driving. After breakfast at the lodge you will start your journey back to Johannesburg or if going on to Cape Town there is a very convenient flight leaving at lunchtime every day from a local airport. We can drop you off there (in which case we refund/discount the cost of the shuttle back to Johannesburg). This is where your safari will end.

You can extend your trip by spending an extra night in the independent Kingdom of Swaziland. There is also a trip along the Panorama Route, which rivals the Grand Canyon in the US and an overnight stay there. If pushed for time we can fly you in and out to a local airport at surprisingly low rates. Talk to us about these extra options.
