From Johannesburg: 2-Day Safari into Kruger National Park
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 2 days
Look for the legendary wildlife of South Africa on a thrilling 2-day safari in Kruger National Park. Day 1: Benefit from pickup at O. R. Tambo International Airport or your hotel in Johannesburg, and then travel via a panoramic route to Kruger National Park. Head to your accommodation which is based in Hazyview outside the Kruger National Park to freshen up before your 2 hour evening game drive. Look for majestic lions, leopards, and other big cats out for the hunt. Return to camp to enjoy dinner around the camp fire. Day 2: Wake early for a morning game drive when the animals are at their most active. Search for big cats heading home from their nighttime hunts, and hyenas scavenging for remains. Return to camp for breakfast and a last chance to encounter animals in the wild before the drive back to Johannesburg.
Following pick-up from your Johannesburg hotel, stop for breakfast in Middleburg before driving another 2 hours for a coffee stop in Nelspruit. From there, head straight to Kruger National Park to discover the Big 5 and other animal species. Depending on what time you arrive and weather conditions, either eat lunch before the afternoon game drive or take your lunch after. Begin your 3-hour drive around the park as you keep an eye out for the famous Big 5 among other unique animals. Following the safari, begin the drive back to Johannesburg.

The guide was excellent in explaining not only about each animal, but also about the history of the cities we passed on the way. Struggled to find and photograph as many animals as possible within 5 hours of the game. Meanwhile we left Johannesburg and 5 hours away from the reservation. Staying in the van for 15 hours was exhausting
Amazing experience! We had a dream to enjoy the kruger a bit and our new friends Ben and Patrick helped us with it to the best of our ability. We are speechless to describe how important it was to make this happen. thank you very much from my heart.
Very nice trip! The guide was very symphatic and we were really lucky- saw 4 of the big 5, so great day. Would 10 of 10 recommend this
