Kruger Park - Fly in Big 5 Safari

This is a great trip for those looking to spend quality time in the African bush while still enjoying the comforts of home. Selati Camp is based on the golden years of the Kruger National Park and will take you back in time to the beginning of this wonderful Big 5 game reserve, renowned for it's Leopard sightings.

Day 1
Depart from Johannesburg Airport and fly directly to the Sabi Sabi air strip, in the Kruger National Park. Times to be advised on booking.

Arrive in time for lunch. This lovely small camp is set on the banks of a river is the perfect destination for honeymooners, or those people wanting to get away from the madding crowds, to a peaceful, romantic bush setting, with the added comfort.

Check in and freshen up and then it's off on your first safari, in open safari vehicles, with a professional ranger and tracker. This area of the Kruger National Park is famous for it's Leopard sightings, so let's hope luck is on your side. You will return to the Lodge after dark. Dinner

Day 2 & 3
Your days start with an early morning wake up call, followed by tea/coffee before heading out into the bush on your morning safari. A well deserved breakfast will be waiting for you back at the Lodge. The rest of the day is yours to relax by the pool or to sit on the veiwing deck and watch the African bush go by. Lunch and then afternoon tea before setting off on your dusk safari, giving you another opportunity to find Rhino, Buffalo, Giraffe, Lion, Elephant and a whole host of antelope. Dinner.

Day 4
After your last game drive and a good breakfast, it's off to the airstrip and back to Johannesburg.

You can fly onto Camp Jabulani for an experience of a lifetime - Elephant back safaris on African Elephants, in Big 5 country!!

International Flights Not Included
Prices subject to change without notice.

Why you should book with us.
We offer guided safaris and tours for small groups and families, often for as few as only two guests.This means guests get a special, private and intimate safari; 2. We focus on personal attention to detail (promising AND providing just that). We are able to stay in one place, viewing for longer - we are flexible which sets us apart from other companies that must stick to time frames and itineraries.
Most of our tours are owner run and operated, giving you the peace of mind that what you pay for is what you get and more. Service, Safety and value for money are our priority.

What to bring.
It is advisable to bring light bush coloured clothing for during the day but always have something warm available for the evenings, especially in our winters (June to September). A light jacket and long pants for the evenings are however recommended, more so for protection against mosquito bites than insulation. During the summer months the area can experience thunderstorms so a raincoat is advised. Swimming costumes are a must, especially during our summer months. A good sun hat (wide brim recommended), is a definite must. A high factor sunscreen/ sunblock is advised for all times of the year. Other important items to bring along are your sunglasses, comfortable walking shoes, insect repellent (most establishments provide repellents) and all personal toiletries. Comfortable walking shoes are also handy.

Binoculars, cameras and video equipment is always good to have, however most establishments carry binoculars on their game vehicles and we carry a good pair in our vehicle, so don't stress if you don't have a pair of your own. Make sure you have all the necessary chargers/batteries and lots of film as some locations do not have well equipped shops, should you forget! A good flash light is also a good piece of equipment to have.

The Kruger area is a malaria area so it is advisable to take the necessary precautions, however, it is usually cheaper to buy them once in the country, if you have a day to spare in a town/city where there is a good chemist - they are much cheaper here in South Africa.

About our trip providers and reviews

Our Trip Providers

We carry out extensive company checks on all our providers, over 20 years we have built strong personal relationships with each of them, which assures you of an unparalleled service, great value and the trip of a lifetime.
We have participated in many of the trips found here (we have a nice job) and make our own independent assessments of the services provided, ensuring they meet with our own high standards.

All the trips are supplied by the end provider of that trip.
You may find the same or similar trips elsewhere, usually these are offered by an agent.
We prefer to give you direct access to the trip provider for reasons outlined below:

  1. Best price.
    The price you see here is the direct trip price set by the provider, the same price as purchasing directly with them (which is how it works), there are no added commissions.
    This means you are not paying an agents commission and the provider is receiving their fully budgeted trip cost.
    (agents can demand discounts from providers as well as adding commissions to the providers trip price)
  2. Easy customisation.
    By booking directly with the end provider, making changes is quick and easy.
  3. Fast problem solving.
    On the rare occasion that an issue may arise before or during your trip, by dealing directly with the end provider, problem solving is quick and efficient.
  4. Helping Africa help itself.
    The most straightforward way to assist the economic opportunities and conditions for local people across Africa, is by direct financial interaction with people in Africa. In a nutshell "Tourism".
    This kind of direct tourism gives opportunity to local people.

We limit the number of providers we work with in order to strike a balance between a good choice of trips and to be sure we can honestly recommend the service and validity of each provider.
Because the majority of trips can be customised by the providers, the choice of trip configurations is in the tens of thousands.

Our Reviews

We have 3,000+ reviews for our trips and providers.
All our reviews are fully qualified, we do not take unqualified reviews.
We show all reviews, the good and the critical (very few). Our providers have the ability to respond to reviews and those responses are shown alongside the review.
Acquiring genuine reviews is actually very hard, for our genuine travellers we make this an easy process but many people although satisfied with the service they received do not leave a review.

Many reviews on the internet can be left by an open process with little or no checks.
At best unqualified reviews are worthless, at worst they are misleading. We never take unqualified reviews.

We hope you find a trip to your liking and we are here to assist.

Wishing you happy travels...
