Safari walks allow guests to get closer to the bush, and if you are lucky, closer to animals - big and small. A short game drive to and from the walking area adds to the excitement of the day.

Experience the thrill of the African bush as day changes to night in the Kruger National Park, in the company of an expert National Parks Ranger. As night falls, we turn on our spotlight and go in search of Africa’s “Big 5”. From the comfort of an open safari vehicle, you are likely to see some of Africa’s more unusual nocturnal animals.

Chimpanzee Eden & Botanical Gardens(Half Day Tour)
It’s a unique day, and we make the most of it! It’s conservation, education, and botany, but wholly experiential. We watch the lives of chimpanzees in semi wild surroundings at the Jane Goodall Institute Chimpanzee Eden – it’s a unique opportunity to study these primates who share 98 percent of our DNA! A gratifying thought is that our presence here – our entrance fee - contributes to the rescue of another chimpanzee. We enjoy a hearty lunch at the Institute, with time over for a leisurely stroll through the exquisite Lowveld Botanical Gardens. A fitting end to an enriching experience.

Canyon Cruise And Endangered Species Tour
(Full Day Tour)

View Africa’s largest active Tufa falls - the spectacular 200m Kadishi Tufa Waterfall, as well as the famous Three Rondavels – uncanny resemblance to traditional African huts. The abundance and diversity of wildlife, including numerous fish and antelope species as well as Hippos and Crocodiles, primate species and a diversity of bird life such as the African Fish Eagle, African Finfoot and much more, will keep you enthralled while you learn more about the natural history of the Blyde River Canyon. Then it’s off for an in-depth tour of the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Center where we’ll embark on a tour to view numerous endangered species including cheetah, wild dog, African Wild cat as well as numerous other wildlife such as lions, black-footed cat, ground hornbills, sable antelope and many more – an amazing and uplifting end to an incredible day!

Endangered Wildlife Special Tour (Full Day Tour)
It’s educational, it’s thrilling and, for those passionate about wildlife, nature and conservation, it’s an amazing day! We visit two highly successful conservation centers dedicated to preserving our wildlife, and experience a behind-the-scenes look at the extreme dedication and skill of our animal conservationists. It’s truly inspiring. We visit Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre – the largest in South Africa – and learn about techniques employed on injured, poisoned and abandoned animals and birds of prey. We’ll be invited to handle certain of the birds and animals. At Hoedspruit’s famed Endangered Species Centre, we’ll be privileged to see rare sightings such as wild dog, cheetah and aardwolf. We’ve planned lunch at the Center to maximize your time there, and we assure you, you’ll take away with you more than you imagined at the end of the day!

Enjoy a performance of traditional song and dance in the Royal Kraal followed by a sumptuous traditional dinner (included).

African Night Experience (Evening)
Join our guides on an open vehicle safari for an exciting late afternoon/early evening game drive within the Kruger National Park – we are in search for those elusive nocturnal animal sightings. After a few hours searching for late afternoon animal activities, what better way to reward our efforts by stopping and enjoying a sundowner drink taking in the spectacular views of an African Sunset? We follow this with a traditional South African dinner braai (weather permitting) before accompanying our rangers for a spotlight game drive in one final attempt to thrill our-selves with an unforgettable nocturnal animal sighting – will the gods be smiling on us and reward us for our efforts?
