A short drive takes us to the gate of the Kruger National Park for our wildlife experience.  After driving to our camp we will settle down for the day and enjoy a hearty lunch.  Our camp (Satara Camp) is in the heart of the park, and is one of the best.
The Kruger National Park is home to 502 bird, 114 reptile and 147 mammal species (including the Big 5 - elephant, lion, buffalo, rhino and leopard).
The afternoon will be spent on a game drive, and then at sunset you will be transferred onto a 4x4 game viewing vehicle for your evening drive.  This is time to spot the nocturnal animals of this great park.
