kruger_national_parkSouth Africa's world-famous Kruger National Park offers overlanders and like minded travelers an experience of a lifetime!

The unspoiled environment offers great game viewing and creates an opportunity for you to experience wild Africa just as you imagined it.

Whether you are an early bird, awake before sunrise to view the bushveld's early risers at the waterholes, or tracking the nocturnal animals with spotlights at night, game drives in the Kruger is one of the best  experiences ever! Our Top 5 short trips are:

4 day 'Kruger Lodge Safari' This is a short trip, but it's definitely sweet. This trip is focused around the Kruger National Park which includes game drives and animal spotting that will keep you in awe of the beauty that can be found in the game park. 

6 day 'Vic Falls and Kruger Highlights' From the adventure playground of Victoria Falls through the northern Kalahari to the ever famous Kruger National Park. A short but rewarding tour!

7 day 'Kruger and Swaziland Lodge Safari' This mixed pot of highlights includes the best of scenic South Africa combined with the fantastic wildlife in Kruger National Park - and then add the best of Swaziland to the lot!!

7 day 'Kruger to Vic Falls' This week long trip takes in 'Big Five' game drives in Kruger and open skies in the Kalahari on the way to the rushing white water of Victoria Falls!

13 day 'Swazi and Lesotho Trek' This trip takes in the very best of the Kruger Park, Swaziland, KwaZulu Natal and Lesotho where meeting the traditional Basotho people and guided trek through this picturesque country provide the perfect end to this adventure.
