Once inside the Kruger Park we will be on the lookout for wildlife en route to our campsite.  After setting up camp you will have a chance to relax for a couple of hours before heading out on an evening sunset drive with your experienced Kruger guide.  This drive lasts between 3 and 3.5 hours, which gives you the opportunity to see plenty of wildlife.  On your return your guide will have dinner ready for you.

Day 2:  Kruger National Park
Starting the day early we will go on a morning game drive and hopefully spot loads of animals and birdlife in their natural habitat.  The Park is home to 147 mammal (including the Big 5), 114 reptile, & 502 bird species.  4x4 open-sided vehicles will be used for the game drives to give you the best viewing possible.  Breakfast and lunch will be enjoyed at one of the picnic sites inside Kruger National Park.
