Overview

Covering nearly 2 million hectares of unrivalled and diverse flora and fauna, the Kruger National Park also boasts immense historical and archaeological sights - a blend only to be found in Africa.  Viewed by many as the flagship of the South African national parks, Kruger is home to an impressive number of species.  Mpumalanga, which means "land of the rising sun" in the local Siswati language, has it all - from exhilarating wildlife, to secluded mountain retreats, ancient ruined cities, wild water sports, and some of South Africa's most diverse and vibrant African cultures. Mirroring the eclectic cultures, the radically different scenery, biome and ecology, offering visitors time in the world's largest green canyon at the Blyde River, highland heaths and ravine forests of Dullstroom, and the sub-tropical woodlands of Nelspruit, all within an hours drive from the iconic Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga, can aptly be viewed as a gateway to the wilderness.

Tour highlights include: Sightseeing from Johannesburg via Middelburg, Dullstroom to Pilgrim's Rest; visit the Digging Site and Gold Panning Museum; Panorama Route, encompassing God's Window, Bourke's Luck Potholes, and the spectacular waterfalls in the Blyde River Canyon and its surrounds; Kruger National Park.

Itinerary

Day 1 (D)
Morning departure from Johannesburg, travel to the 'Land of the Rising Sun' - Mpumalanga. Your 5.5 hour journey takes you through incredible scenery - mountains, panoramic passes, valleys, rivers, waterfalls and forests characterise the landscape. Arrive at your hotel, the Protea Hotel Kruger Gate, in the late afternoon. Check in to start your Kruger Experience immediately with an afternoon open vehicle game drive into the Kruger National Park. All safaris in the Kruger National Park are operated in specially designed open safari vehicles and you are accompanied by a qualified and experienced FGASA and SATOUR registered guide.

Accommodation: 4* Protea Hotel Kruger Gate or similar (Bed & Breakfast)

Day 2 (B/D)
After breakfast, embark on a full day safari into the Kruger National Park. The safari starts early in the morning and your guide will cover as much area as possible. Stops will be included at the various lookout points within the park and you will be given the opportunity to explore man's interaction with the Lowveld environment over many centuries - from bushman rock paintings to majestic archaeological sites like Masorini and Thulamela. These treasures represent the cultures, persons and events that played a role in the history of the Kruger National Park and are conserved along with the park's natural assets. A packed lunch will be enjoyed inside the park. Return to the hotel in the early evening in time for dinner at the hotel.

Accommodation: 4* Protea Hotel Kruger Gate or similar (Bed & Breakfast)

Day 3 (B)
After an early breakfast, depart the Kruger National Park and travel back to Johannesburg via the 'Panorama Route'. The Panorama Route is best known for its cultural heritage and its dramatic landscapes. It leads through the rugged mountain range of the northern Drakensberg in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa. Travel through 'Gods playground' to God's Window overlooking the green Lowveld. Further north along the route, stop along many well-positioned vantage points from where one has a view of the 33 km long Blyde River Canyon gorge, which starts at 'Bourke's Luck Potholes' and ends at the 'Three Rondavels'. The Potholes are very impressive rock formations that were shaped millions of years ago by erosion. The bizarre swirl holes developed when the once rapid river carried masses of sand and debris. Time and weather permitting, stop at various waterfalls along the way.

The tour ends on arrival at your Johannesburg based hotel by 6pm.
