Day 1: Kruger Private Reserves

Day 3: Hoedspruit

Drive to the Orpen Gate of Kruger on a custom-built open-sided Gameviewer. You will have an opportunity to view game without intervening glass windows and also listen to and smell the denizens of the bush. We have regular stops at picnic spots, restcamps and places of interest. The Orpen-Satara-Nwanedzi region’s open plains attract large herds of zebra, giraffe and antelope that, in turn, attract many predators. In fact this zone has the highest concentration of lions in Africa.

After breakfast, we travel to the Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre for injured and orphaned animals and birds. You will have an opportunity to get close and personal to some of the residents, including lions and leopards. After lunch you drive to Tremisana. At around 15h00, we drive to the Big Five Tshukudu Game Reserve for High Tea. Enjoy an open vehicle game drive in this Big Five reserve. Return to Marc’s Treehouse Lodge for dinner and overnight.

Day 5: End of Itinerary
