Day 1: Johannesburg to Marc’s Camp
Pick up from your hostel or Johannesburg Airport and travel in an air-conditioned vehicle via Dullstroom or Nelspruit to the lodge. After a short break (swim/ early sundowner at the bar) you board the open Landcruiser for a 3 hour sunset drive. Your qualified guide will facilitate your first sightings of Africa’s varied fauna. We stop for photos of the magnificent African sunset. After dark, your guide will use a powerful spotlight to locate nocturnal animals. Dinner in the boma around a crackling fire will be a typical South African meal. Overnight in your simple, yet comfortable safari tent.
Day 2: Kruger National Park
Kruger Park time! After breakfast we board our open game viewer that provides unbeatable opportunities for a total sensual wildlife experience. These vehicles offer superior viewing and the absence of windows allows you to hear and smell the African bush and its denizens. Your experienced guide will show you many animals and birds that frequent this wildlife paradise. The Orpen / Satara region has open plains with numerous herds of giraffe, zebra and antelope that attract the big cats. Dinner and overnight again at Marc’s Camp.
Day 3: Kruger National Park to Johannesburg
Early morning game walk accompanied by your armed ranger. You will attempt to get close to the numerous animals that have made their home at Marc’s, especially nyala, buffalo and rhino. After breakfast, you drive via the Blyde River Canyon on your return to Johannesburg where you arrive in the late afternoon. Airport drop off by arrangement.
