What to expect
The Kruger National Park is one of the worlds’ leading nature reserves and on a 5-day safari we spend a lot of time exploring the Park. Most operators only do 3-hour morning and afternoon drives, but the KNP is vast, and Kurt Safari was one of the first operators to introduce full-day safaris on our 3-day safari tours.
This gives clients a chance to see a larger part of the Kruger and different areas, compared to short 3-hour safaris which must remain close to the camps, resulting in driving the same areas on every safari. Spending a full day in the KNP can sound tiring, but the guides stop regularly at rest camps and lookout points. The extended time increases the chances of seeing more wildlife as we traverse different grasslands and ecological zones.
Your 5-day Kruger and Panorama Safari will include a Sunset / Night safari on Day 1, A full day open safari vehicle on day 2, a Full day Panorama tour in a closed vehicle on Day 3 and 2 morning safaris in the Kruger Park on Day 4 and 5.
80% of our clients on 5-day safaris encounter all the Big 5.
Kurt Safari makes use of 2 lodges in the Hazyview area, Umbhaba Eco lodge and if fully booked we use Hazyview Sun, both lodges are quality 4-star lodges and within 15 min of either Numbi or Phabeni gates. Kurt Safari only offers quality accommodation for our clients for all tours and Safaris. All rooms are fully serviced, with En suite, safe and comfortable 4 star accommodation.
