    Enjoy a safari that combines the unique experience of a private game reserve as well as a 3-nights - stay at a Kruger National Park Rest Camp and a Panorama Route Tour. You get to see animals from an open safari vehicle; as well as from a boat on Olifants River. Your professional Khalanga Safaris nature guide will accompany you from day 1 to ensure your safety and comfort, facilitate the best animal sightings and share his profound knowledge and understanding of the African bush.

    Day 1

    Panorama Route Highlights

    Your safari adventure begins at OR Tambo International Airport when you board your shared shuttle transfer to Hoedspruit at 7:45am—later departures are available for a modified itinerary. You will arrive at the Drakensberg mountain range around 1:30pm where you will meet your Khalanga Safaris guide. Enjoy some of the scenic sights of the famous Panorama Route, such as The Three Rondavels and Bourke's Luck Potholes, and marvel at the views of one of the greenest canyons in the world. Later that day, we arrive at Tshukudu Bush Camp in Tshukudu Private Game Reserve, part of Greater Kruger National Park, where you will spend the night in a comfortable cottage. Dinner will be prepared for you by your guide.

    Day 2

    Private game reserve safari

    You will spend the whole day in Tshukudu Private Game Reserve, enjoying a bush walk and afternoon safari (activities shared with other guests of Tshukudu Bush Camp). Your Tshukudu Safaris guide has a wealth of experience of the area, and you can expect to see many of the Big Five as well as other lesser-known species. Your guide will prepare meals, including breakfast, a light lunch, and dinner. In between activities you can explore the camp and rest by the pool.

    Day 3

    Riverboat Safari and National Park game drive

    We start our day early and make our way to Phalaborwa. One of the day's highlights is a morning boat cruise on the Olifants River, with a chance to see many animal species (including crocodiles and hippos) in their riverine habitat. In addition, you might be lucky to see elephants, different species of antelopes, water birds, and perhaps even other members of the Big Five as you enjoy the serene morning and fresh air by the river. Later we will continue to the gated entrance of Kruger National Park, and you will embark on your first afternoon safari with your Khalanga Safaris guide. Your guide is highly experienced in locating animal sightings, understands all the signs of animals and nature, and is keen to share his vast knowledge. In the evening, you will join a sunset game drive (shared) conducted by Kruger National Park rangers. Breakfast is included, and lunch and dinner will be available at one of the rest camps, where we will be stopping for breaks.

We use an open safari vehicle for all of our game drives. Breakfast and dinner are included today.
