Day 1: Early morning pickups from Johannesburg and the airport, and we head for the Kruger Park, South Africa’s premier game reserve. The Kruger Park is located in the subtropical savannahs’ of the low veld and provides ideal conditions for wildlife. The Kruger National Park is surrounded by private nature reserves and many of them have removed fences allowing the animals to roam freely between the Kruger and private reserves. This whole area is known as the “Greater Kruger” and is ideal for safaris. Our adventure begins in the private reserve of Balule, where we enjoy our first game drive. Our drive continues into the evening and we have an opportunity to view nocturnal animals using spotlights. A traditional braai (barbeque) is enjoyed in a boma deep in the African bush. The night is spent at a comfortable thatch lodge.
Note that the Balule Game Reserve is a Big 5 reserve and is connected to the Kruger Park. All fences have been removed to allow for the free roaming of animals.
Day 2: An exciting day awaits you. We depart early morning on a game drive deep into the African bush where we will do a 3 -4 hour bush walk. Learn about the bush, including spoor/tracks and smaller animals. Enjoy the thrill of stalking large animals on foot. Note that the bush walk is led by an armed qualified ranger. We return to the lodge for brunch and a well-deserved rest. In the afternoon we head out on an exciting afternoon game drive. In the late afternoon / evening we make our way to our tree house accommodation where we have dinner.
The tree houses are simple and rustic and offer a very different experience. The tree houses are located on the Klasrie River in the Motlala Game Reserve which is home to a range of animals including black and white rhino, buffalo, giraffe and numerous antelope species.

We take a welcome break and lunch at one of the rest camps, before continuing our game drive. After an exciting day of wildlife viewing we return to the tree house for a welcome rest.
