Enjoy this prolonged opportunity to discover and savour the Bushveld’s secrets on foot.

After lunch at 13h30, board the open Landcruiser at 15h00 for a 2h Game Drive. Transfer to Masango where accommodation is in ensuite chalets. Dinner and overnight at Masango.

DAY THREE : Drive to the Orpen Gate of Kruger on a custom-built open-sided Game Viewer. You will have an opportunity to view game without intervening glass windows and also listen to and smell the denizens of the bush. We have regular stops at picnic spots, rest camps and places of interest. The Orpen-Satara-Nwanedzi region’s open plains attract large herds of zebra, giraffe and antelope, that, in turn, attract many predators. In fact this zone has the highest concentration of lions in Africa. Dinner and overnight at Masango.

 

DAY FOUR : Enjoy another full day of game viewing in the Kruger National Park. Dinner and overnight at Masango.
