Kruger Park & Sabi Sand Experience in a Nutshell!
Tydon African Safaris offers many safari packages, such as the Kruger Park Safari, that combines a visit to the Kruger National Park and the Sabi Sand Reserve.
Your adventure begins and ends in Johannesburg. The Kruger Park Safari comes in different sizes! What I mean here, is that the duration of the trip to the Kruger Park Safari ranges from 3-7 days.
In essence, the Kruger Park Safari offers game drives in the Kruger National Park and the Sabi Sand Reserve, but their numbers will differ depending on the length of your trip. For instance, the 3-day safari includes one game drive in the Sabi Sand Reserve and 2 in the Kruger Park, whereas the 7-day safari offers four game drives in the Sabi Sand Reserve, and six in the Kruger Park, as well as a bushwalk in the Sabi Sand reserve!
Therefore, your days will be spent on game drives (morning and afternoon drives) in an open 4×4 safari vehicle, allowing you to get even closer to the wilderness!
Also, on the last day of your trip, you will head back to Johannesburg by traveling through the “Panorama Route”. This is a 5-hour drive encompassing many scenic landscapes such as Gods Window, Lisbon Falls, and Graskop.
Kruger National Park
The Kruger National Park is the largest park in South Africa with nearly 2 million hectares. The Park is located in the provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga with the nearest town being Nelspruit.
The Kruger Park is one of the most sought-after destinations in South Africa. It has gained notoriety for the game viewing drives of the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhinoceros). Besides the Big Five, the Kruger National Park encloses an impressive array of wildlife and flora.
Sabi Sand Game Reserve
The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is next to the Kruger National Park and shares an unfenced border of 50 km (30 miles). Since the reserve is privately owned, off-road driving is permitted which enable you to get even closer to the wildlife. Furthermore, night drives can take place within the reserve, and there is one scheduled for the first night of your Kruger Park Safari adventure.
The Sabi Sand Reserve is considered the best destination for catching a glimpse of the elusive leopard.
So, Who Is This For?
Tydon African Safaris have designed many safari packages to fit all budgets as well as various travelers’ styles. Therefore, the packages available include luxury safari, romantic getaway, and adventure travel.
The Kruger Park Safari is perfect for families, small groups, and solo travelers.
The group size is relatively small and is around 2-4 people, so it could very well end up being just you and your family on a private safari!
The Tydon Safari facilities are situated within the Skukuza Camp in the Kruger National Park. The camp facilities include a swimming pool and a lounge area, where you could relax during your downtime. You’ll be staying in a comfortable air-conditioned chalet with all the amenities (toilets, shower, electricity).
