PLACES TO VISIT: Timbavati, Kruger

ITINERARY
Day 1  Arrival

A professional driver who will pick you up in Johannesburg on the morning of your departure. All transfers are done in a luxury air-conditioned vehicle, where you will be transported via the Panorama Route to Sabi Sands. Panorama route includes God’s Window, Lisbon Falls and Graskop and all entrance fees are included in the package. There are numerous stops along the way for comfort breaks and photo moments.

Arriving at Umlani Bush Camp or similar, you will be greeted by the friendly lodge staff and have time to settle in and rest before embarking on the afternoon game drive. Timbavati has a high concentration of wildlife and is known for the predators, especially the cats. Although the Timbavati is a private reserve and is a more exclusive safari experience, it forms part of the Greater Kruger Park with its borders being mainly unfenced with the national park.

Late afternoon and into the evenings is a great time to spot wildlife, after which you will make your way to the lodge for dinner and an opportunity to have a relaxed evening.

Meals: B, L, D
Accommodation: Umlani Bush Camp

Day 2  Timbavati Game Reserve

You will be greeted with a cup of coffee before heading off for the morning game drive in a 4x4 safari vehicle, hopefully with an opportunity to spot the Big Five waking and roaming in your path. There is an alternative to go on a morning bush walk rather than the drive if you so prefer.

Upon return from your safari, you will be served a leisurely breakfast and have the remainder of the morning at the lodge to catch up on sleep or resting at the pool.

Lunch will be served and there will be some more time to unwind before returning for an afternoon/sunset safari drive with your guide.

Sunset will be spent in the bush, after which you will be returned to the lodge for dinner and the evening at your leisure. 

Meals: B, L, D
Accommodation: Umlani Bush Camp

Day 3  Departure

Early morning rise and head out for your morning game drive to spot the animals that have been eluding you on your safari experience. Return to the lodge for breakfast and check out, where our driver will be waiting to transfer you back to Johannesburg via Nelspruit.

Should you want to fly in and out of Nelspruit (KMIA), rather than be transferred from and to Johannesburg, this can be arranged. The drive time is roughly two and a half hours to Nelspruit from the lodge or about six hours to Johannesburg.
