On arrival at the airport, our representative will pick you up and transfer you approximately 1 hour to the safari lodge. Enjoy the rest of the afternoon relaxing and getting to know the camp and the mineral springs. Dinner is served this evening in the traditional open air "Lapa".
Before breakfast our ranger will take you for a 3-hour morning game drive in an open Land Rover. Most of the African wildlife can be encountered here, including elephant, rhino, zebra, lion, giraffe, crocodile, hippo, leopard...the list goes on! Return for breakfast, you deserve a rest and time to enjoy the Makutsi Springs. In the early afternoon, depart for another 3-hour game drive before returning in time for a sundowner at the Makutsi Lapa.
Depart at 5am for a full day’s game viewing in the world famous Kruger National Park. The early hours of the day are used for finding as much game as possible. Your guide will take a picnic style breakfast along, and a stop is made at one of the many rest areas to enjoy it. After breakfast, you will head off on more game exploration until lunch time (at your own expense), when you stop at one of the camps inside the Kruger National Park.
After lunch, head off again for more game viewing before returning to Makutsi around 4-5pm.\
This morning is at your leisure. Enjoy the warm mineral pools or your own private safari while sitting on your terrace, reading a good book.
Depart Makutsi at 3pm for a 5-hour game drive. Around sunset, light snacks and drinks will be enjoyed during a short Sundowner break. After snacks, continue your safari in search of the various nocturnal animals. Take a jacket along in winter, as it can get chilly once the sun disappears. Return to Makutsi Main Camp around 8pm when dinner will be served.
After breakfast depart at 9am for a day of sightseeing in the breathtaking Drakensberg Mountains and Blyde River Canyon. Several stops are made along the way, including the Bourke’s Luck Potholes and the Three Rondavels viewpoint overlooking the Blyde Dam.
