Climb aboard an open safari vehicle and embark on a game drive through Kruger National Park. Search for the "Big 5" of Africa and other magnificent creatures in the wilderness, where 2 million hectares are home to a variety of animals, from lions to giraffes.

Unser Guide hat uns in einer Tour die Big Five gezeigt. Wir waren das erste Auto, was morgens in den Park gefahren ist, dadurch haben wir sehr viele Löwen und Hyänen gesehen, die teils noch auf der Straße liefen. Das Highlight aber war der Leopard, welcher oben im Baum saß und neben ihm sein frisch vertilgtes Warzenschwein hatte.

Wir haben sehr viele Tiere gesehen und von unserem Guide auch viele Informationen zu den kleineren Tieren erhalten. Er hat mit seinem scharfen Blick auch die kleinsten ausfindig gemacht und uns vieles erklärt.

Die Panorama Route ist wunderschön, das Highlight bietet der Blick auf die Three Rondavels. Unser Guide hat uns neben den Schauplätzen auch sehr viel über die südafrikanische Kultur und Vegetation erzählt.

Good correspondence from the start. Easy to change the day as booked well in advance. Excellent driver Levi. Very knowledgeable. All in all an excellent experience

Fantastic experience. Beautiful lodge. Great guide!
