A Taste Of What To Expect..
We start off this Safari in the greater Kruger National Park giving you the feel of a privately owned lodge surrounded by no fences and then move over to the worlds famous Kruger National Park. First visiting the Panorama Route along the way. The Mpumalanga area is one of great contrast, bordered in the west by the towering escarpment, with lush indigenous forests, crystal-clear streams and plunging waterfalls, and then falling away into the flat Lowveld bushveld, home to one of the richest diversities of fauna and flora in the world.
Collection in Johannesburg
You will be collected from OR Tambo Bus Terminal in Johannesburg at 06h30am by your driver.
Departing from Johannesburg at 06h30, we set off on the scenic road to the north east of the country where we encounter beautiful natural scenery. Lunch is enjoyed in the historic town of Haenertsburg, located on the edge of the escarpment with beautiful surrounding views. The road is filled with picturesque beauty, from mountain passes to the Acacia trees scattered across the African bushveld. The next two nights we get cosy at Imagine Africa’s Tented Lodge situated in a private reserve within the greater Kruger National Park, where animals roam freely and unrestricted. This privately owned reserve allows us the freedom to explore the wilderness in search of a variety of animals in open game drive vehicles, day and night. The Luxury tents overlook the Drakensberg Mountains and at night you can hear the sounds of the African Bushveld.
Meals: Dinner Included Highlights: Sunset/ Night Drive in Big 5 game area
After peaceful nights rest we start with an early riser light breakfast of fresh coffee and rusks (a traditional South African biscuit), before embarking on our morning experience within this Big 5 area. Guided by a qualified guide/Ranger we explore the wilderness, with heightened senses, always on the lookout for an animal encounter while discovering the smaller treasures often hidden from the eye. Before the heat of the day sets in, we return to the lodge for a scrumptious breakfast, after which it’s time to relax around the lodge and enjoy the serenity of the surrounding wilderness. Lunch may be enjoyed on the deck and mid-afternoon High Tea. With the heat subsiding in the late afternoon an open game drive is in order, which develops into an extensive night drive in search of nocturnal animals. As dusk approaches we pull over and enjoy a sundowner drink or two, while watching the magnificent sunset over the African bushveld. We return to the lodge for a welcoming dinner in the Boma.
