Day 1: Johannesburg/Kruger National Park
Sawubona! Welcome to South Africa. We depart Johannesburg, the ‘City of Gold’ and head off on an adventure of a lifetime. A truly unique African experience unfolds as we enter the Greater Kruger National Park ecosystem arriving at our campsite in time for lunch.
Our base camp for the next 3 nights is in the Guernsey Private Game Reserve on the edge of the Kruger National park.
After settling into camp we venture out into the bush in Balule Nature Reserve and track the wildlife of the African wilderness in open 4×4 vehicles. Our afternoon Game Drive lets us get up close to the animals and continues on into the night where with the aid of spotlights we are introduced to some of the elusive creatures of the night. (D)
