Overnight:  Silvan Safari Lodge ( 5 star )  or  Elephant Plains Game Lodge  ( 4 star ) – Fully inclusive of all meals, twice daily game activities, daily bush walk [ Local branded alcoholic drinks included at Silvan ]

Day 8 – 9 :  Exciting Safari

Morning safaris

An early morning call from the Ranger will wake you before first light, while the kitchen brews hot coffee or tea, and prepares cool fruit juices with a muffin, rusk or other freshly made delicacy. So begins the morning safari.

The bush is already alive, the air filled with birdsong as the rising sunlight dances off beads of dew on spiders’ webs. Nobody, not even the tracker who can read the bushveld like a book, knows what’s in store. He will watch the road for spoor, leaning forward intently to find any print left by a predator during its hunt in the dark. There may be hushed discussions in Shangaan between Ranger and Tracker, and brief radio interactions from one vehicle to another. Sharing information ensures that the occupants of each Land Rover have the best chance of a wide range of sightings during their drives – and also ensures control and responsible behaviour as the vehicles move in close to the animals.

Morning guided bush walk

Renowned for luxury experiences, Sabi Sabi isn’t all about phenomenal game drives and exceptional dining. Opportunities for education and adventure are definitely on the cards for those interested and energetic. On the morning safari walk you can be part of a small group that sets out on foot after breakfast. The walk is an opportunity to feel the pulse of Africa through the soles of your feet and experience the bushveld at close quarters.

Sabi Sabi boasts approximately 350 different species of birds, a paradise for birdwatchers. Raptors are plentiful, including 11 species of owl, the seldom seen cuckoo hawk and rare bat hawk. There is an endless diversity of trees, shrubs and flowering plants, and whatever the time of year, no two walks are ever the same.

Evening safaris

Evening falls and you prepare for the night safari. As the fierce heat of the day cools, the inhabitants of the bush become restless, and the animals move out of the shade of the trees. The call of the crested francolin reverberates through the bushveld and birds increase the volume of their song. You will be aware of colours softening to the beautiful, gentle hues that vary with each season. New scents fill the air and as the sun dips behind the horizon your Ranger will choose a spot where you can stretch your legs and enjoy sundowners alongside the vehicle. Watch in awe as the sky turns to the sensational vibrant reds, golds and oranges typical of an African sunset. There is a lull as the animals sense the transition into a time of increased danger. It is during evening safaris that the nocturnal hunters start stirring, and their prey needs to be alert for survival through the night.

During your safari you may be lucky enough to watch lions prepare for their evening hunt. Their long bodies stretch to ease muscles cramped from lying in the shade during the day; sinews are lengthened and claws sharpened against a tree; the vegetation is marked with scent, and the wind checked for smells; only then do they set off in a slow, loose-jointed, arrogant amble. There are numerous nocturnal hunters and on your evening safari, with the help of a spotlight, a leopard’s eyes may reflect back from a nearby tree. Or you may be lucky enough to spot another smaller predator, a genet, African civet or African wild cat. One can come across scenes at night that become etched in memory: elephants moving heavily but silently in the moonlight; the incredible flying leaps of bushbabies from treetop to treetop, and the red shine from a lion’s eyes as it looks up from its kill.

Overnight:  Silvan Safari Lodge ( 5 star )  or  Elephant Plains Game Lodge  ( 4 star ) – Fully inclusive of all meals, twice daily game activities, daily bush walk [ Local branded alcoholic drinks included at Silvan ]

Rhino Post Safari lodge and **** Plains Camp is in the Kruger itself

With action packed Kruger National Park game drive safaris, guided walking safaris and an optional Sleep-out experience in Big 5 territory.

Day 1:  Your safari adventure begins

06h00 Your Driver will meet you in the foyer of your Johannesburg hotel and transfer your to the departure point for your luxury shared shuttle and a road transfer to Skukuza airport where you will be met by your Rhino Post ranger and transfer to the lodge

OR choose a 1 hour fight from Johannesburg to Skukuza  

Upon arrival at Rhino Post Safari Lodge you will be greeted by our friendly front-of-house team and welcomed with a chilled home-brewed iced tea on our deck overlooking the river bed before you are shown to your suite.

You will be offered a high tea at 15h30 in the lounge overlooking the waterhole before departing for an afternoon / evening game drive at 16h00.

Game drive safaris are conducted by professional rangers in open 4×4 vehicles.

Rhino Post also has the exclusive use of 170 kilometres of road within the Kruger after dark when other visitors are confined to camp.

Our afternoon drives stop for sun-downer drinks and snacks at sunset before continuing into the night in search of wildlife,

The drives return to the lodge in time for guests to freshen up and enjoy a drink before a sumptuous dinner on the deck.

Dinner is sometimes complimented by even more game viewing as animals come down to the waterhole to drink

Overnight: Rhino Post Safari Lodge  – Fully inclusive of all meals  ( brunch, high tea and dinner ), teas, coffees and twice daily game drives 

Day 2:  Scheduled Game Viewing Activities 

Rhino Post Safari Lodge offers early morning and evening safari drives. Safari drives are conducted in specially adapted open Land Cruisers, with professional guides.

In addition to limited driving on our 12,000-hectare concession, we have exclusive use of some of the Kruger National Park public roads at night. SANParks has allowed us the added advantage of being able to utilise 170km of Park roads after gate closing time – when all the self-drive tourists have left and when the other concessions have to be back on their respective properties.

Overnight: Rhino Post Safari Lodge  – Fully inclusive of all meals  ( brunch, high tea and dinner ), teas, coffees and twice daily game drives 

Day 3:  Safari Game Drives and Walking Safari 

Early wake-up call, and will have time for a cup of tea or coffee before heading out on your game drive.

Once back at the lodge, brunch will be served. Brunch is usually served between 10h00 and 10h30

At 14h00 we check out and you will be transferred by 4×4 to Plains Camp (home of Rhino Walking Safaris), a trip which takes about 30 minutes and is a mini-game drive in itself.

After settling into your 19th century explorer-style luxury tent and being shown around the camp, high tea is served

After your rangers have been through the safety precautions, you will set off on a Safari walk which is always an exhilarating experience. All walks are led by two armed guides.

You will later return to the vehicle in time for sun-downers and enjoy a night drive before returning to camp for a excellent dinner around the camp fire.

Overnight:  Plains Camp  – Fully Inclusive of all meals  (brunch, high tea and dinner), cold drinks, house wine and local beers, teas & coffees, morning walk and afternoon walk/game drive

Day 4:   Walking Safari Trail

All walking trails are enjoyed in the early morning or late afternoon to avoid the midday heat, with the average duration of the morning walk being between 3 and 4 hours.

On each walking safari our guides will share their wealth of “bush culture’’ – not only identifying flora and fauna but also explaining the medicinal uses of plants, local folk lore and interpreting wildlife tracks in the sand.

A hearty brunch is served after getting back from the morning walk.  Choose to take the opportunity to cool off in in the plunge pool or simply relax on the deck while doing some more game-watching over the Timbetene Plain.

High tea is followed by an afternoon walk and a evening game drive.

Drinks around the fire, followed by dinner complete the day.

Overnight:  Plains Camp  – Fully Inclusive of all meals  (brunch, high tea and dinner), cold drinks, house wine and local beers, teas & coffees, morning walk and afternoon walk/game drive

The platforms are elevated about four metres above the ground and guests sleep on individual sleeping decks in a tent made of mosquito netting. After you have settled onto your deck, you will enjoy sundowners overlooking the waterhole. While your dinner is being prepared over an open fire the night sounds will bring another dimension to your bush experience. Your guides will ensure your safety at all times.

The four decks accommodate a maximum of 8 people and there are two bathrooms that each have a flush toilet and shower.

After coffee or tea and a light snack the next morning, you’ll walk back to Plains Camp for breakfast and a shower or swim.

Note:

  1. Sleepouts will be cancelled in the case of inclement weather

2 Night Sensational Fly-In Kruger National Park Safari

2 Night Sensational Fly-In Kruger National Park Safari

If you want an Out of Africa experience, this is it.

With 6 Luxurious and opulent tented suites, Hamiltons Tented Camp awaits to welcome you into the very special realm of the legendary Kruger National Park.

From open vehicle game drives with extraordinary rangers, to delicious dinners around the camp fire , a day in the bush is an unsurpassed experience.

Located in the Western Kruger area bordering Sabi Sands and the Mayeleti concession, Hamiltons Tented Camp promises fantastic game viewing !

To understand the difference between Kruger and the concessions, The Kruger National Park is state owned and the concessions are privately owned.

Most concessions share an unfenced border with Kruger allowing free movement of the game.

Day 1:  Your safari adventure begins

Check in at Johannesburg OR Tambo airport for your direct flight (one hour ) to Skukuza airport.

On landing , one may see lions along the airstrip.

Met by your ranger , and you will be transferred the 63 km to the camp.

One already sees wildlife en route.

We arrive in time for check in and a delicious lunch

Dining at Hamiltons is a classy affair from crystal glasses to uniformed butlers. Every care is taken by the proud chefs to bring you the very best of African cuisine,

Your ranger will then brief you on the next couple of days game activities.

The afternoon/evening Game drive then departs deep in the African Bush, stopping at a viewpoint for sunset drinks

As the evening falls and darkness surrounds us , the rangers light their powerful spotlights which are moved from side to side

One often will come upon a thrilling lion kill.

After a wonderful time we return to the lodge for Dinner

Overnight: Hamiltons Tented Camp  – Fully inclusive of all meals and game activities 

Day 2:   In search of the Big Five 

We have an early start to the day with a 05h00 wake up call.

Hot coffee and rusks are served before boarding the Land Rover.

It can get chilly so bring a warm jacket and of course a hat for when the sun comes out.

The animals are most active at this time , still engaging with the nights hunt.

Your ranger knows the terrain well and will often work with their colleagues via radio when an important sighting has been made.

There is always a good chance of seeing the Big 5 on these drives as the area is very game rich.

After the thrill of the bush we return for a excellent hot breakfast!

Then we have a most thrilling hour and a half experience walking through the bush with our armed ranger. This brings us up close to the wild animals all around.

No perfume or cologne please!  Clothing must be khaki or neutral colours.

We then return for an excellent lunch.

Time to relax for High Tea where a selection of fresh pastries is served.

The afternoon evening game drive then departs where once again we drive deep into the bush in search of the Big 5!

We have a bush dinner this evening!

Overnight: Hamiltons Tented Camp  – Fully inclusive of all meals and game activities 

Day 3:  Safari ends 

Early morning game drive followed by breakfast.
