Safari Experience – Kruger National Park 4 Star (3 Nights/4 days)
Escape into the tranquillity and magnificence of the African “bushveld”, where the only sounds are natural and the sights are of magnificent animals and the bright night sky. Open vehicle game drives will bring you up close and personal with the Big Five and all the other inhabitants of the bush. The Kruger national Park was founded by the government in 1926, thanks to the dedication of people who, in the face of a society that was of a very different mind, believed that the eastern part of South Africa needed to be preserved in its glorious, untouched state. Today, Kruger National Park encompasses nearly 12,000 square miles (larger than Israel) of wildlife safari country and supports more than 800 species of animals living in their natural habitats. The park, rich in biodiversity, stretches for 350 km from south to north along the Mozambican border before meeting up with the Zimbabwean border in the north. This is a paradise for the wildlife enthusiast and is a world leader in dynamic environmental management techniques and policies based on experience gained over more than a century. Your hotel is located only 100 meters from the Paul Kruger Gate of the Kruger National Park and is designed in typical safari lodge style with open air dining in the “boma” around the fire and free time can be spent observing game from the comfortable tree deck. 19 Sep, 2009: Very early morning check-out for flight to Johannesburg; Transfer from airport to Kruger hotel.
