2019 (9 NIGHTS)
(2 NIGHTS) Talamati (private bushveld lodge/north central Kruger)
This private bushveld lodge is ideally situated in the central Kruger NP. Our drives and activities include several dams, open savanna and thorn thickets with some amazing riverbeds and pools to explore. Elephants, lion and buffalo are prolific in this area as well as the endangered cheetah.
Night time at Talamati plays host to unbelievable African wildlife sounds, and you are sure to see many animals at the waterhole by simply sitting in the game viewing hide for an hour or two. Bird watching is also prolific. A resident troop of baboons is always seen foraging around the camp in the evenings.
Accommodation is a private en-suite cottage that sleeps two people (fresh linen and towels included).
(2 NIGHTS) Satara (restcamp/ central Kruger)
Situated in an excellent game viewing area, Satara has relatively open bushland and the game is plentiful and diverse. Satara camp itself has a rustic charm, with the accommodation set out in a series of circles. Satara camp is well wooded and the bird-life is prolific. At night the clink of fruit bats is fused with the chirping of cicadas and crickets. Owls and nightjars add to the symphony that is punctuated by the whoop of hyena, the screech of jackal and the roar of lion.
Accommodation consists of a one-bedroomed en-suite cottage (fresh linen and towels).
(3 NIGHTS) Skukuza (restcamp/central Kruger)
Stevenson-Hamilton, the first warden of the park. Literally translated it means ‘he who sweeps clean’, a reference to his removal of all the local people to make way for the establishment of the Park. The Stevenson-Hamilton Memorial Museum houses many interesting artifacts – very well known is the knife ranger Harry Wolhuter used to single-handedly slay a Lion and save his own life.
Skukuza is the Kruger National Park’s largest rest camp and is situated on the southern banks of the Sabie River. Skukuza Restcamp is home to some interesting birds and amazing plant life.
Accommodation consists of a serviced (fresh linen and towels) private en-suite cottage that sleeps 2 people.
(2 NIGHTS) Lower Sabie (restcamp/south eastern Kruger)
Large numbers of game are attracted to the abundance of water, sweet grass and foliage in the vicinity of Lower Sabie Rest Camp, giving rise to a diversity of game, almost unequalled anywhere else in the Park. The area is also rich in lion, cheetah, elephant, hippopotamus, rhino, herds of buffalo up to 800 strong, and is known for its high density of warthog.
Accommodation consists of an en-suite unit which sleeps two adults, which is fully serviced (fresh linen and towels) under beautiful thatched roofs.
