A sensational six-night South Africa adventure with safari thrills at Kruger National Park and a stay in Johannesburg - includes game drives, bush walks, all travel and extras

As soul-stirring safari jaunts go, it doesn’t get much better than South Africa - the fabled land edged on three sides by 1,864 miles of stunning coastline and fueled by remarkable national parks that assure sightings of the Big Five (a term coined by big game hunters to reference lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant). So it’s easy to see why this activity-driven tour will appeal to those seeking spellbinding scenery, exciting wildlife viewings, and epic bush adventures.

After spending the first night in Johannesburg’s affluent residential suburb of Northcliff, you’ll make your way to Mpumalanga - one of South Africa’s smallest provinces that’s also one of its most fascinating. Here you’ll not only get up-close(ish) with the celebrated big-name residents of Kruger National Park, but you’ll also get to enjoy game walks and drives with trackers and guides - all of whom will happily explain the intricacies of this majestic African wilderness.

Further thrills include road-tripping the Panorama Route along the northeast of the Greater Drakensberg Escarpment to see the Blyde River Canyon, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, and God’s Window - a spectacular vantage point overlooking the vast Lowveld. And then there’s the added luxuries that come with a tour of this calibre, including rustic-chic lodge accommodation, nightly sundowners, and ample free time to soak up the splendour of this incredible place.

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive at Johannesburg’s O. R. Tambo International Airport. Transfer to Greenfire Lodge Johannesburg for one night.
Day 2: Set off for Mpumalanga - the so-called “land of the rising sun” that extends east from Gauteng to Mozambique and Swaziland. You’ll stop for brunch in Dullstroom before winding your way down the Drakensberg Escarpment and into the untamed Lowveld. You’ll spend the next two nights at Greenfire Bush Lodge in a private reserve next to Kruger National Park.
Day 3: Highlights include a three-hour game walk with a professional guide or tracker and an afternoon game drive in an open-sided 4x4 vehicle (this will continue into the night to give you a chance to see nocturnal wildlife). Also included is a bush braai cooked on an open fire.
Day 4: Set off to explore the highlights of the Panorama Route – one of the world’s greatest road trips that takes you through raging rivers, fertile valleys, and up to soaring mountain peaks. Highlights include Blyde River Canyon, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, God’s Window, Graskop, and the Kowyns Pass. Transfer to Greenfire Lodge Hazyview where you’ll spend two nights.
Day 5: Set off for the southern section of Kruger National Park for a full day of game viewing with a professional guide. Although most of the day will be spent staking out the Big Five, there’s also a chance to stop at a designated rest camp.
Day 6: After a relaxed breakfast, depart Hazyview and make your way back to Johannesburg. Arrive at Greenfire Lodge Johannesburg late afternoon for an overnight stay.
Day 7: Transfer to Johannesburg’s O. R. Tambo International Airport for homebound flight.

Greenfire Lodge Johannesburg (first and final nights)

For a unique sleep in the north-west of Johannesburg, this charming 17-room thatched lodge in the quiet and affluent residential suburb of Northcliff makes an excellent alternative to a city-central hotel. Staying in a Double room, you can look forward to colourful decor, a comfortable bed with crisp white linens, and a private bathroom. On-site facilities include a private garden, a small restaurant, and an outdoor pool lined with sun loungers. You’ll also be within easy distance of some of Johannesburg’s top sights, including the Apartheid Museum, Constitution Hill, Emmarentia Dam and Johannesburg Botanical Gardens. Breakfast is included.

Greenfire Bush Lodge, Kruger National Park (two nights)

For sweet seclusion, this traditional nine-room lodge is located in the privately-owned Balule Private Nature Reserve next to Kruger National Park. There’s a modern look to the twin-bedded tented chalets, all of which have a bathroom, living area with sofa, private patio, and access to the dining room and communal pool. There’s also a viewing terrace for reliably good game sightings that go beyond the Big Five (think a huge amount of bird species as well as small mammals attracted by the riverine, forest, and open plains). Your stay here is on a half-board basis.

Greenfire Lodge Hazyview (two nights)

Set on the banks of the Sabie River, this eight-room lodge built on stilts is just 15 miles from Kruger National Park - the Big Five winner that’s home to more species of large mammals than any other African game reserve. Housed in a traditional thatched-roof chalet smack bang in the middle of the forest, your Double room comes with a comfy bed, shower, and balcony or terrace for knockout views of the river or grasslands. Facilities include an outdoor pool and a cosy lounge that’s perfect for sundowners. Your stay here is on a half-board basis.
