Escorted Kruger Safaris

Booking an escorted safari means that you or your guests are going to be looked after by one of our professional specialist guides from the minute they arrive until the minute they leave. A specialist guide is someone who has been to the camps before and has an in-depth knowledge of the reserves and a lot of previous experience. He not only guides the safaris, he manages every aspect of it. For example; luggage retrieval, medical and dietary requirements, cooking meals, paying the bills and sorting out any unexpected travel hiccups which happen in Africa despite every precaution being taken. They are a font of knowledge on the country, its politics and people. They all have a deep passion for our wildlife and understand the issues of conservation.

Your guide wakes you in the morning for game drives, gets the kettle on while you’re still rubbing the sleep out of your eyes and has the coffee ready with homemade muffins by the time you are fully awake. He spends 5-6 hours in the bush with you trying to find as much wildlife as he can for you and then repeats it again in the afternoon for another 3 hours. After that he cooks dinner for you and will sit with you afterwards to discuss the days’ events. Very few lodges do that these days. At some private lodges, the staff take it in turns to be the person on duty in the evenings and there is every chance that you won’t see a ranger at dinner the whole time you are there, let alone the ranger who you have been on game drive with. We believe that you should be able to spend the evening talking to your guide about your encounters that day, it’s all part of the experience and it’s how you learn more about the bush and its’ inhabitants

Due to the nature of the business, the people they meet and the things they experience, our rangers are great characters & storytellers, with a wealth of patience and a wonderful sense of humour. This is supported by a love of people and the wildlife whose lives and ways they share with the lucky guests travelling with them.

KRUGER UNDER CANVAS

  • Four or Five Day Tour
  • Kruger National Park – the very name arouses evocative images of crisp, clear winter mornings with an orange sun rising from the horizon, the early morning call of lions in the distance and the whickering alarm call of the zebra; the sweet scent of Mother Africa’s greatest piece of paradise, stirred for another day of adventure; and after a day in the bush, settling down and feeling the primeval prickle of hair on the back of the neck as the hyena whoops in the dead of night.
  • We invite you to experience the Kruger with us and our experienced expert guides. See one of the world’s great wildernesses from the safety of our specialised, open game viewing vehicles, wallow in our comfortable safari-style tents and delight in the textures of the bush and the tastes of our delicious and imaginative camp fire cooking.
