5 Day Best of Both Worlds Safari
The reason we love this safari so much is that it combines one of our favourite little camps (nDzuti) with a night just outside of the Klaserie Game Reserve allowing guests to have 3 full days of game viewing in the private Klaserie Game Reserve (where you are allowed to go off road more) with a full day inside the Kruger National Park. While there is no difference in vegetation and game viewing, many people would just like to experience a game drive inside the Kruger National Park and this safari offers this. Tom Cats which is the camp that you would stay at on your last night is very simple and nothing like nDzuti, but it does allow the full day game drive in Kruger Park which would not be possible if clients were to stay at nDzuti for all 4 nights. What is nice about Tom Cats is that it does have a public little bush pub next door which is a great place to unwind at the end of your safari and perhaps even meet some of the local peeps.
Guests are collected from OR Tambo for accommodation within 5 km of the airport and travel by micro bus to The Greater Kruger Park- a 5 hour journey. They then change vehicles and enter the reserve to travel 20km to nDzuti Safari Camp. Lunch is served before the afternoon game drive. The drive stops for sundowners before continuing as a night drive in search of nocturnal wildlife or maybe one of the big cats. Dinner in the boma around the fire and overnight in air-conditioned safari camp with en-suite bathrooms.
Tea and coffee with biscuits and fruit are served before the early morning game drive. After a 3-4 hour guided drive/walk guests return to camp for a hearty breakfast served at the fire or in the thatched dining room. Later lunch is served and guests can relax at the pool or in the hide overlooking the waterhole. Tea and coffee and purified water is freely available all day. Afternoon game drive/ night drive, now guests are familiar with the process and involved in spotting some exciting wildlife sightings. Dinner and overnight.
Same as Day 2
After tea and coffee in the early morning guests are collected for a journey into the Kruger National Park. The vehicle stops briefly at Tom Cats where luggage is off loaded and a packed picnic breakfast is collected. The full day is spent in the Kruger National Park, stopping at rest camps and picnic spots for refreshments and to stretch the legs. The tour leaves the Park before closing time and heads back to Tom Cats for drinks and dinner and a rest full night sleep in en suite rooms with ceiling fans. The Kruger is a vast area and needs some time to explore. A full day in the National Park can cover some ground and add interesting wildlife encounters to the tour.
The morning is at leisure birding or fishing at the picturesque dam at Tom Cats. A relaxed breakfast is served before the Johannesburg shuttle leaves at noon to get back to the city at 17:00hr.
