All logistics are covid-19 regulation dependent.

Start the day early on this intimate small group safari (less than 10 people) from OR Tambo Airport. A transfer from your hotel to the shuttle pick-up point costs ZAR 875 per transfer.

A scenic drive with fantastic photographic opportunities takes us though the escarpment and the lowveld to the Sabi Sands Game Reserve (when taking the shuttle service from Johannesburg). We advise guests to buy take-out meals at the standard road stop (on their own account).

The afternoon drives continue after dark (sunset drive) and dinner is afterwards.
