Kruger National Park and Timbavati Safari

Day 1 - Kruger National Park
We collect you from your hotel after breakfast and set off for the world-renowned Kruger National Park. This park offers a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa and the world and is unrivalled in the diversity of its life forms. We take a leisurely game drive to our camp.

MEALS: Dinner: Kruger NP
INCLUDED: Kruger NP Daily conservation fee

Day 2 - Kruger National Park

Day 3 - Timbavati
Enter the Timbavati. The Timbavati Private Nature Reserve comprises 53,392 hectares of private land adjoining the Kruger National Park. The beauty of the Timbavati is that it allows you to go off road to view game – ensuring the best possible opportunities for sightings of the Big 5. We arrive at our lodge in time for lunch and some time at leisure before joining the rangers on the evening game drive.

OVERNIGHT: Gomo Gomo Game Lodge
MEALS: Breakfast: Kruger NP
Lunch: Gomo Gomo Game Lodge
Dinner: Gomo Gomo Game Lodge
INCLUDED: Entry into the Timbavati Conservation area

Day 4 - Timbavati
Game viewing is done in open safari vehicles and the camp size is so small, it feels more like home than a rest camp. Nothing is fenced off so it is not uncommon to have Hyena coming into camp to try and wash the dishes after supper!

Sightings are close, as the 4x4 game viewers go off road to view animals like Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Rhino, Elephant, Cheetah and Wild Dog. You also have the option of joining your ranger on a bush walk, to get up close and personal with many aspects of the bush that often pass you by on a game viewing vehicle.

A highlight is the sunset drives, where we depart from camp at about 15h00 and stop for drinks and some snacks before sunset. The drive resumes as soon as the sun is down and you have the opportunity to seek out the nocturnal inhabitants of the bush.

OVERNIGHT: Gomo Gomo Game Lodge
MEALS: Breakfast: Gomo Gomo Game Lodge
Lunch: Gomo Gomo Game Lodge
Dinner: Gomo Gomo Game Lodge

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...
