While residing in the private areas, it is worth your while to visit the public areas of the Kruger National Park as well. This area, which is only slightly smaller than the Netherlands, offers an unrivaled diversity of fauna and flora, fused with historical and archaeological sites.
Enjoy an entire day touring the different ecological zones with its unbelievable number of species of trees, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals – and of course the FAMOUS BIG 5, lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant. Be sure you have your binoculars, and we will provide the rest. An early start, accompanied by your professional tour guide, you leave the Lodge and head towards a day of game viewing, beautiful scenery and loads of fun!
After entering the Kruger, we keep our ears and eyes open. Anything can happen, and the chase is on! Following a hearty breakfast and a cup of coffee at Letaba camp, we visit the Elephant museum.
The search then continues as we explore further along the rivers and ravines. Lunch will be enjoyed either at a picnic spot, or at one of the rest camps in the Park, before we resume the trail. By late afternoon we exit the Park and head back towards Sausage Tree Safari Camp where a cold beer will be waiting for us, a true reward after an unequaled experience!
