Bush walk and Tshukudu Game Reserve

At sunrise drive to the mighty Olifants River to enjoy a 4-hour bushwalk. Your rangers will lead you through the bush at a pace you can handle. The thrill of following big animals will remain with you forever. Adrenalin surges will be acute, notwithstanding that your rangers are adequately armed. Return to Tremisana for brunch. Later, you may sleep in your air-conditioned chalet, swim or read wildlife magazines in our Lapa Lounge. We will drive to Tshukudu Big Five Game Reserve in time for high tea at 3:30 pm, after which we'll enjoy an afternoon game drive. The rangers are in constant contact so as to be informed of the movements of the animals. You'll then return to Tremisana at 7:30 pm.

Day 3

Full Day Kruger National Park

Full Day Kruger National Park

Drive to the Orpen Gate of Kruger on a custom-built open-sided game viewer. You will have an opportunity to view game without intervening glass windows and also listen to and smell the denizens of the bush. We will have regular stops at picnic spots, rest camps and places of interest. The Orpen-Satara-Nwanedzi region’s open plains attract large herds of zebra, giraffe and antelope, that in turn, attract many predators. In fact this zone has the highest concentration of lions in Africa.
