An early morning departure from Pretoria sees us heading towards the Kruger via the Drakensberg escarpment. We descend the escarpment into the “Low veld” taking in the magnificent views. The “low veld” provides ideal conditions for Africa’s famous wildlife to thrive. The Kruger National Park and surrounding reserves is home to large concentrations of animals and is ideal for safaris. We set up camp on the outskirts of the Kruger. Tonight, we experience traditional tribal Shangaan dancing and singing around the camp fire.

After an early morning breakfast, we head to the gate of the Kruger Park. Note that the game drives are conducted in specially adapted open game vehicles. These 4x4 vehicles offer great viewing as well as excellent photographic opportunities. The local guides are well experienced and know all the best spots to find the animals.  The guides are very knowledgeable and offer great insight with regards to the wildlife. We enjoy a morning game drive, before having a welcome break for lunch and a rest at one of the Kruger rest camps. The afternoon is spent searching for any elusive species that may have eluded us. After a long day in the park, we head for camp for a well-deserved rest.
