This afternoon we do a guided tour of the Centre with one of their guides. The centre is home to many endangered species, such as wild dog, cheetah, lion, vultures, king cheetah and many more.
A short drive takes us to our exclusive camp close to Kruger national park, where we will be staying the night. There is a large variety of wildlife such as zebra, giraffe, blue wildebeest, impala, bushbuck, nyala and much more, which we often see around the camp. After sunset you leave for a night drive in the neighbouring big five game reserve which is part of the Greater Kruger National Park. The game viewing on the night drive is exceptional, and the guides very knowledgeable. We then return to our camp, where you will hear hyenas, lion and jackal calling, while relaxing around a camp fire in the boma where we enjoy dinner.
Please note that we might do the night drive the following night.

Day 4: Kruger National Park (South Africa)
A short drive takes us to Orpen gate which is the most central gate to Kruger national park, where we arrive as the gates open. Kruger is home to 147 mammal (including the Big 5), 114 reptile & 502 bird species. You will be transferred to open sided 4 x 4 game viewing vehicles in which we will do game drives. Kruger national park is the same size as Israel, Wales or Netherlands and contains different vegetation types that attract different animals to different areas of the park.
Therefore we spend as much time on game drives as possible, so that we give ourselves a better chance of seeing different animal and bird species. We concentrate the game drives around the central region of the park, where we have a better chance of seeing the big cats and a large variety of animals.
Breakfast and lunch will be prepared by your guide and enjoyed at one of the many picnic sites inside Kruger national park. The guides will also stop at various view points and hides inside the park.
At sunset you will depart on a 3 hour night drive, done in a Kruger national park open sided game viewing vehicle with a Kruger guide.
