Detailed itinerary:

Day 1: Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre (South Africa)
We depart early morning from Johannesburg & Pretoria.

This afternoon we do a guided tour of the Centre with one of their guides. The centre is home to many endangered species, such as wild dog, cheetah, ground hornbill, vultures, king cheetah and many more.
A short drive takes us to a 3 star safari lodge close to Kruger national park where we will be staying. The lodge has a variety of wildlife including blue wildebeest, impala, nyala, giraffe and much more. Clients can cool off in the large swimming pool, or relax by the vibrant pool bar.

A short drive takes us to Orpen gate which is the most central gate to Kruger national park, where we arrive as the gates open. Kruger is home to 147 mammal (including the Big 5), 114 reptile & 502 bird species. All game drives will be done in open sided 4x4 game viewing vehicles, for ultimate game viewing and photos. Kruger national park is the same size as Israel, Wales or Netherlands and contains different vegetation types that attract different animals to different areas of the park. Therefore we spend as much time on game drives as possible, so that we give ourselves a better chance of seeing different animal and bird species. We concentrate the game drives around the central region of the park, where we have a better chance of seeing the big cats and a large variety of animals. All our guides are very knowledgeable and will give you plenty of information on each animal seen, birds and the vegetation. Breakfast and lunch will be prepared by your guide and enjoyed at one of the many picnic sites inside Kruger national park. The guides will also stop at various view points and hides inside the park, where you can stretch your legs while looking for wildlife. You will also stop at shops during the day, where you can buy snacks, drinks etc. You guide will also stop at a shop before leaving the park, so that you can buy drinks for the evening.
