Lion King Tour
For the more discerning traveller, who prefers the comforts of life and can afford to pay for luxury.
Three days two nights which includes a private reserve lodge.
Leaving Nelspruit when the birds awaken, 5am we travel to Kruger, where we eagerly seek out the 140 mammals that have Kruger as their neighbourhood as well as the Big Five that also reside in Kruger. After game spotting we are rewarded with a leisurely breakfast at one of Kruger's idyllic picnic spots before we find our way to Lower Sabie, rumoured to be the top camp in Kruger for a bit of well deserved rest and relaxation in your bungalow.
Day two we arise early as the animals awaken after a fitful nights' sleep and make our way out the park over a three hour period as we tick off those animals not yet spotted. We leave the memories of Kruger firmly in our minds as we welcome our stunning stay over in a private lodge, situated in either, Sabie Sands, Timbavati or Thornybush.
On arrival we are given a truly royal welcome and experience the undeniable pleasure and true comfort of a game drive in an open 4x4 game vehicle that dares to get a lot closer to the game than in Kruger, as no private vehicles are permitted into the reserve. Once game spotting is completed we retreat to our luxury accommodation and indulge in superb meals and discover a different outlook of conservation, noticing the differences in this reserve to that of Kruger.
Day three after sleeping like royalty we awaken early to the sounds of the animals beginning a new day. We head on out for a last early morning game drive (or if possible a game walk). Once gaming is complete we take a leisurely drive up into the Small Drakensberg Mountain range, where the exquisite sights such as God's Window, Lisbon Falls, Bourkes Luck potholes which is the world's third largest and only growing canyon, the Blyde Canyon awaits us. Once we have captured these awesome sights on camera/video. We have a well deserved lunch at Harries Pancakes, famous for their delicious selection of mouth watering pancakes.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to time constraints. Blyde Canyon is only possible if time is on our side. Should there be planes to catch to other destinations etc., this could pose a time constraint. However if possible a stay over in Nelspruit is a must once we have returned in the late afternoon.
