Day 1
You will be met at Mpumalanga Airport and transferred to your hotel situated near Hazyview on the scenic Panorama Route.
 
Check in and relax in this region that is famous for its beauty and wildlife.
Day 2
This morning visit a local Elephant Park to experience a very special close-up encounter, where for 1-hour you can interact with and feed one of these gentle giants.
 
Afterwards visit the Graskop Gorge Lift for breathtaking views over the surrounding countryside. Take the lift down into the gorge, where there is a short trail across a wooden bridge into the forest with the backdrop of a pretty waterfall.
Day 3
This morning we drive 1.5-hours to Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre where you have the unique opportunity of viewing wild lion, leopard, cheetah, eagles and vultures at close quarters. Animals found injured, poisoned or orphaned are given a second chance and released back into the wild.
 
In the afternoon we drive back through the green Blyde River Canyon - the third largest canyon in the world. Enjoy wonderful views from Pinnacle Rock, Wonder View and the Three Rondavels lookout, with the option to take the Graskop Gorge lift (pay locally if you wish to do this activity, as it involves a fairly strenuous walk with plenty of steps & crossing a suspension bridge). Also visit the Lisbon Falls and the unusual Bourkes Luck Pot Holes - cylindrical holes formed from the swirling waters of the Blyde and Treur Rivers.
 
Note: Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre is closed on Sundays.
Day 4
Today transfer to your lodge in the world famous Kruger National Park, a drive of 2 to 3 hours depending on the location of your lodge.
 
After checking in, enjoy your first thrilling game drive in an open-top vehicle accompanied by a ranger. Game viewing opportunities should present themselves almost immediately and hopefully you will see several species of antelope, zebra, wildebeest and maybe even giraffe today - as well as several of the Big Five - before dining under the stars in the atmosphere that only the African bushveld can provide.
Days 5 To 7
Rise at dawn to take advantage of the best game viewing conditions of the day, as you enjoy a thrilling shared open-top game viewing drive with a lodge ranger in the world famous Kruger National Park.
 
Explore some of this vast game sanctuary that is the size of Wales, offering magnificent game viewing opportunities and the highest concentration of lion in the whole of Africa. Hope to see several of the Big Five today - lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino - as well as many other species before returning to your lodge for breakfast.
 
The rest of the morning is free to relax by the swimming pool or enjoy bird watching at the lodge, before setting out again in the late afternoon for another game drive. With nearly 150 different species of mammals and over 100 species of reptiles in the Kruger National Park, you can hope to see cheetah, giraffe, hippo, kudu, crocodiles, sable antelope, waterbuck, warthogs, baboons, wild dogs and many other interesting animals. With over 500 different bird species including eagles, kingfishers, vultures and storks, outstanding bird watching is also guaranteed.
  
After a beautiful African sunset, enjoy the balmy evening and pristine stars of the Milky Way as you have never seen them before – as well as the spectacular Southern Cross.
Day 8
Enjoy some final early morning game viewing in the Kruger National Park.
 
Afterwards transfer between 2 and 3.5-hours to Mpumalanga Airport (depending on the location of your lodge) for your flight home.
