Kruger Park Elephant Safari
We offer a four day packaged safari to Hazyview area of the Kruger National Park and Elephant interaction. On this packaged safari, guests stay at the popular Hippo Hollow Lodge or similar, situated near Hazyview on a half board basis. The package includes transportation and all game drives are conducted in open 4X4 safari vehicles inside the Kruger National Park. The guests will have the opportunity to interact with elephants and learn more about these creatures.
Transportation to Hazyview is operated by a professional driver who will pick you up in Johannesburg on the morning of your departure. All transfers are done in a luxury air conditioned vehicle, where you will be transported via the Panorama Route to Hazyview.
The Panorama route includes God’s Window, Lisbon Falls, and Graskop and all entrance fees are included in the package. There are numerous stops along the way for comfort breaks and photo moments.
Upon arrival in Hazyview, guests will check into Hippo Hollow Country Estate (or similar if not available), which is situated near the Phabeni Gate. The lodge is a 3 star establishment, rooms are air-conditioned and ensuite. All rooms have a view either over gardens or the Sabi River. The estate has two swimming pools and a restaurant where all the breakfasts and dinners are included. On particular evenings in the hotel, guests are treated to a Shangaan supper and entertainment. A hotel upgrade is available at a surcharge.
On your first evening, you will either partake in an afternoon game drive or an evening game drive. This is dependent on availability and will be communicated to the guest on route to Hazyview.
On your second day of the package, our guide will pick you up in the early morning and will spend the full day with you in the Kruger Park, where hopefully you will be able to view the Big Five. We will stop during the day for a number of comfort breaks and a chance to enjoy lunch. Lunch is at your own cost.
Our guides are highly trained professionals equipped with knowledge on virtually every living species in the Park, and will provide you with an insightful, unforgettable and enjoyable experience. You will be in an open 4x4 game vehicle, so please bring a hat, sunscreen and appropriate clothing.
Day three will include an elephant interaction and a half day 4x4 game drive in the Kruger National Park. You will be able to spend some time interacting with the elephants and learning more from the elephant handlers. Depending on the timing of the interaction, you will either partake in a morning game drive or an afternoon game drive.
On your fourth morning, our guide will pick you up in the early morning and will spend half the morning in the Kruger Park on a game drive, before returning to the lodge to freshen up and make your way back to Johannesburg.
