    4-day - ​ Luxury Kruger Park & Panorama Route Safari ​ Get an authentic wilderness experience with your African Safari! Have unrestrained luxury while experiencing magnificent wildlife sightings in Africa’s most iconic game reserve. Kruger National Park was proclaimed in 1898 and later extended to its present size of approximately 19,000 square km or 8,000 square miles. Where nearly 2 million hectares of the unrivaled diversity of life forms fuses with historical and archaeological sites - this is real Africa. The world-renowned Kruger National Park offers a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa. This Tour is an excellent choice for people who want to enjoy spectacular scenery, combined with game drives to see the renowned big five (elephant, rhinoceros, lion, leopard and buffalo). Itinerary: If you arrive a day or two earlier, we recommend booking an excursion to Soweto or the Apartheid Museum. You will be picked up at any of the following spots for the start of the tour between 6 am and 7 am: 1. O.R.Tambo Airport, 2. Gautrain Centurion Station, 3. Your centrally located hotel, 4.

An abundance of wildlife will keep you distracted while learning more about the natural history of the Blyde Canyon. The Kadishi Tufa waterfall, at 200 meters (around 660 feet) in height, is the second tallest tufa waterfall on earth. The waterfall’s formation strikingly resembles a face which is crying profusely, and is thus sometimes known as ‘the weeping face of nature’. Completing this we head to the heart of the Kruger National Park through the Orpen gate, watching game as we head to the Rhino Post Safari Lodge for 2 nights, situated at the southern end of our 12,000 hectare private wilderness concession in the Kruger National Park. The concession shares a 15km unfenced boundary with the famous Mala Mala and Sabi Sand reserve with an abundance of wildlife moving freely between the two reserves. The concession and surrounding areas is noted as an excellent game viewing area, home to all of the Big Five as well as a variety of other mammals, reptiles and birds. Twice daily game drives in open 4 x 4 vehicles with professional guides are included. In the late afternoon after a delicious high tea, you can enjoy an evening safari drive, winding down with sun downers, watching an African sunset and spotting nocturnal animals in the Park. Have excellent game viewing and photographic opportunities from the main Lodge deck. You can enjoy a selection of South Africa's finest wines from the wine cellar. Whether you need to de-stress with an Anti-Stress Massage, recover flexibility with a Deep Tissue Massage, or just pamper yourself with a Tribal African Wrap, the spa treatments are done professionally in the privacy of your own room. (Sleepout decks overlooking the Xiteveteve waterhole provide the ultimate in bush experiences. This is an activity where guests sleep on individual sleeping decks, connected by ladders and walkways to each other, the bathrooms and the main deck. Dinner is cooked over the open fire. This activity is optional and must be pre-booked.) ​Day 3: An early morning game drive leaves at about 06h15 after an early tea, and returns between 09h30 and 10h30. Guides at the lodge meet the requirements of the South African National Parks to ensure that your encounters with the African wilderness are exciting, informative and safe. You can relax at the pool for the rest of the day, or be taken by your Tour Operator for another game drive during the day. The evening drive departs at 16h00 and returns between 19h00 and 20h00, stopping for sun downers at sunset. *[Please note that you have the choice for days 2, 3 and 4 in The Kruger Park to either stay for 2 nights at Plains Camp, home of the Rhino Walking Safaris, or at the Rhino Post Safari Lodge.
