Kruger-tour-.jpg







This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience of the wonders of nature - you cannot get any closer to the pristine, diverse and exciting processes of an ecosystem protected and shared by people that care. This is your opportunity to enjoy and experience what you would normally only view on a wildlife documentary.
Enjoy a small group safari (no more than 8 people sharing) on a full service basis. Your guide is accompanied on safari by his hospitality chef, who takes care of the meals – all our cuisine is traditional South African in a wonderful outdoor setting.

Malelane (private bushveld lodge/southern Kruger)

12-13 SEPTEMBER 2011 (1 NIGHT) 

Malelane Camp accommodates a maximum of 19 persons. No day visitors are allowed, therefore resident guests can enjoy the privacy and intimacy offered by this camp. Witness the spectacular beauty of the rising morning sun illuminating the sky during morning drives, and the seemingly sudden awakening of the bush with the shrill burst of bird song and the canter of animals to waterholes.
Accommodation is a private en-suite bungalow for two people.
Satara (restcamp/central Kruger)

13-15 SEPTEMBER 2011 (2 NIGHTS)

After breakfast on the second day begins a fantastic privately guided game drive into the ecology and diversity of the southern landscapes of the Kruger, where you spend nights 2 and 3 in Satara. Situated in an excellent game viewing area, Satara has relatively open bushland and the game is plentiful and diverse. Satara camp itself has a rustic charm, with the accommodation set out in a series of circles. Satara camp is well wooded and the bird-life is prolific. At night the clink of fruit bats is fused with the chirping of cicadas and crickets. Owls and nightjars add to the symphony that is punctuated by the whoop of hyena, the screech of jackal and the roar of lion.
Accommodation consists of a serviced (fresh linen and towels) private en-suite unit.
Talamati Lodge (private bushveld lodge/centralKruger)

15-17 SEPTEMBER 2011 (2 NIGHTS)

This private bushveld lodge is ideally situated in the central Kruger NP. Our drives and activities include several dams, open savanna and thorn thickets with some amazing riverbeds and pools to explore. Elephants, lion and buffalo are prolific in this area as well as the endangered cheetah.
Night time at Talamati plays host to unbelievable African wildlife sounds, and you are sure to see many animals at the waterhole by simply sitting in the game viewing hide for an hour or two. Bird watching is also prolific. A resident troop of baboons is always seen foraging around the camp in the evenings.
Talamati is an ideal lodge to photograph the wildlife in open savanna, and often includes remarkable sights of hunting predators, large herds of buffalo and elephants aggregating around water holes.
Your accommodation at Talamati consists an en-suite unit (fresh linen and towels) that sleeps two people. They are fully serviced under beautiful thatched roofs and very comfortable. 
A morning guided bushwalkwill be conducted by Neil and another armed ranger on one of the mornings.
Skukuza (restcamp/central Kruger)

17-19 SEPTEMBER 2011 (2 NIGHTS)

Skukuza is the Kruger National Park's largest rest camp and is situated on the southern banks of the Sabie River. Skukuza Restcamp is home to some interesting birds and amazing plant life.
Accommodation consists of a serviced (fresh linen and towels) private en-suite cottage that sleeps 4 people. Wildlife in this region includes
hyena, kudu, wilddogs, giraffe, roan, eland, sable, warthog, impala, waterbuck, reedbuck and rhino.
Biyamiti Lodge (private bushveld lodge/south eastern Kruger)

19-21 SEPTEMBER 2011 (2 NIGHTS)

Nestled on the banks of the Biyamiti river, this private bushveld lodge plays host to some of the biggest buffalo herds in the Kruger. Elephants, lion and leopard are frequent visitors to the water pools in front of the lodge, as well as rhino (both white and black rhino) and hyena. Our game drives meander in and out of the river system, up and down rolling hills, and through the mixed thornveld and riverine areas of the Crocodile River.
Accommodation at Biyamiti consists of an en-suite cottage that sleeps two people, which is fully serviced under beautiful thatched roofs and very comfortable. A morning guided bushwalk will be conducted by Neil and another armed ranger.
Neil and his chef take up residence in another unit in each location from where they will host your meals, fireside conversations and great hospitality.

Departure day: On your last day after breakfast and a gamedrive you will be collected and transferred back to Johannesburg.

Varda & Dan
Dear Ince,

It is exactly three weeks since our return to Israel, full of stories, experiences and a definite wish to revisit SA in the future again.

I did want to say a special thank you  to you personally for the kind attention which you showed us from the first contact we made with you until the call asking us if all was ok.  The trip to the Drakensberg was just wonderful.  The scenery is not of your making but the conditions and our guide definitely contributed to a good experience.  We would recommend your company and Stef, our guide, to anyone at any time.  And if, at any time during the period of planning and decided, we had second thoughts about taking a trip of this kind, they soon dissolved.

I once again we wish you and your family a good 2012, in good health and fulfilment.
Sincerely good wishes and I hope that if you ever make a visit to our country, you will make sure to be in touch.
Varda
