Day 1

Arrive Johannesbug and Fly to Skukuza

Arrive Johannesbug and Fly to Skukuza

Arrive at OR Tambo (JNB) International Airport and check-in for your flight to Skukuza in the Kruger National Park.

On arrival at Skukuza (SZK) Airport, you will be met by your private guide and transferred a short distance to the Sabi Sands area of the Kruger National Park, where you will be spending the following four nights on safari at MalaMala Main Camp. Enjoy your first game drive along the way.

On arrival at the lodge, enjoy a light lunch on the patio overlooking the Sand River. After lunch, you can relax and unwind as the African bush casts its magical spell. After late afternoon high tea and snacks, depart on your afternoon game drive in an open safari vehicle in search of Africa's Big Five. As the sun sets, the nightlife becomes active and you may spot a black-maned lion or perhaps a leopard on the hunt. Return to the lodge for a hearty dinner, and listen to the sounds of the African bush around a campfire.

Day 2-4

Full Day at MalaMala Main Camp

Full Day at MalaMala Main Camp

Enjoy twice-daily game drives in open safari vehicles, with your first drive conducted early in the morning before breakfast. On your return from your game drive, have breakfast and then spend a lazy morning at the lodge.

In the late afternoon, depart on your second game drive, watching the sunset from the safety of your game drive vehicle. As darkness falls, the night predators will start hunting, and this will give you the opportunity to view the nocturnal animals and listen to the sounds of the bush. Nothing beats seeing a lion kill or a leopard family walking in the bush, not to mention the amazing birdlife and the array of smaller mammals.
