7-Day Ultimate Kruger Non Fenced Walking Camping Safari

This 7 Day Ultimate Kruger Non Fenced Walking Camping Safari is a Wild Planet exclusive and provides a Kruger experience above and beyond all others. The Safari is a fully inclusive group camping experience with a maximum group number of 8 guests and is operated in an open safari vehicle. The Safari allows the guest to explore Kruger in a variety of different ways. There will be open Safari game drives, an open safari night drive and multiple morning and afternoon walking safari`s.

The 7 Day Ultimate Kruger Non Fenced Walking Camping Safari is split into 2 halves, for the first half  guests will be camping at the public camp sites in 3 different camps in the central area of Kruger National Park. Whilst at these camps guests will be joined by a Wild Planet Safari guide and a chef/ assistant. Together they will set up camp and prepare all meals as well as guide you through this fantastic area in Kruger. Guests will depart on daily sunrise and sunset safari drives in search for some amazing wildlife sightings.

The second half of the safari is north of the Olifants river, guests will spend the next 3 nights in an non fenced private campsite far away from the public roads of Kruger. We will be joined by 2 armed Kruger guides for this part of the safari and they will take guests out for walks into the bushveld every evening and morning while at this exclusive private camp. This rustic camp is as wild as a safari can get in Kruger and there is no electricity, the toilet is a long drop and the shower is solar heated. This is a fantastic, highly exciting experience, wild animals could be in or around camp at any time of the day.

Wild Planet Safari will provide all camping equipment, including a large tent that you can stand inside, a stretcher bed, a foam mattress, linen and sleeping bag. Guests need to bring a flashlight, headlamp and good walking shoes. There is no supplement for solo travelers and any solo guests will get their own private tent.

7-Day Ultimate Kruger Non Fenced Walking Camping Safari

Day 1. Johannesburg to Kruger National Park (Maroela Camp)

Today your amazing adventure begins. The transfer to Kruger departs from O.R. Tambo at 6:45am and will transport you safely and comfortably to Hoedspruit, a small town bordering Kruger National Park. In Hoedspruit you are invited to enjoy an own expense lunch and to do some shopping for the tour, we will then drive the short 40 min trip to the gate to Kruger.

We will enter at Orpen Gate and will be staying at the beautiful Maroela Camp on the banks of the dry Timbavati River. The area is great for elephant and lions. It is also a great place to start looking for the Wild Dog pack that operate around this area.

Maroela Rest Camp is only available to campers and offers a far more intimate experience than the larger rest camps, we will take you out on an exciting afternoon drive in the area around the camp and we will return to camp at sunset.

Tonight we will enjoy dinner at the camp around the fire whilst enjoying the night sounds of the African Bushveld.

Meals Included: Dinner

Day 2. Kruger National Park (Satara Rest Camp)

Early this morning at sunrise we will head out into the wilderness in search of some great animal sightings. We will search high and low for some of the predators that may be active and search for some of the gentler herbivores. We will enjoy a picnic breakfast in the park before we return to Maroela to pack up and head off to Satara.

We will take a slow drive along the Timbavati River through some excellent lion habitat towards Satara. We should arrive at lunch time and enjoy a small meal while we set up the camp for the night.

This afternoon we will take you out for a safari drive in the Satara area, this a great place to find lions, the vegetation is dominated by open grassland and attracts many grazing animals like zebra. This in turn attracts many lions to set up territories here and we have excellent chances of finding these fantastic predators.

We will return to camp at sunset and enjoy another dinner under the African skies before you go on a night drive in Kruger.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Day 3. Kruger National Park (Balule Campsite)

We will venture out at sunrise this morning again, as this is the best time to find active animals and it is the best time to take the most stunning photo`s. We will enjoy a picnic breakfast at a wonderfully wild picnic site with stunning views of the Sweni River, after this we will return to Satara to freshen up before we depart for the next camp, Balule.

Balule is another intimate camp site only available to campers. The camp is close to the Olifants river and provides an ideal spot to enjoy the bird life in Kruger, it is also on the main route that the elephants take to visit the river during the day and night and we are sure to have some herds pass right by. We will serve lunch at camp and then depart on an afternoon drive along the Olifants River.

This area is going to give us the best chance of finding the elusive leopard as they have set up territories all along the banks of the Olifants. Dinner will be served at camp tonight.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Day 4. Kruger National Park ( non fenced, private rustic campsite Nyahiri)

Early this morning, at sunrise, we will head out for one last drive along the Olifants River. This is one of the most beautiful areas of Kruger and offers stunning views and great wildlife. We will enjoy breakfast at Olifants camp and then return to Balule to pack up. Today we will head north towards Mopani to an exclusive rustic camp, Nyahiri.

The next 3 nights will be spent at this camp and it is an experience to beat all experiences in Kruger. The camp has no fence or electricity it is deep in the bush away from any public road or camp. We will be joined by 2 Kruger guides who will be armed, together with the 8 guests and us, we will be the only people at the camp. We will supply all equipment necessary to be safe and to have an awesome time.

We will arrive just after lunch and settle in, as the temperature cools down we will head out into the wilderness on foot. On the walks we will enjoy the smaller things as we slowly explore this wild area.

Dinner will be served at the camp.

Meals Included: Breakfast and Dinner

Day 5. Kruger National Park ( non fenced, private rustic campsite Nyahiri)

At sunrise this morning we will depart on an exciting bush walk, we will follow the game trails as they wind their way through the Savannah and search for some interesting signs of recent animals activity. It will only be us and the bush, we will not hear the sound of any cars or other people. A truly amazing experience.

We will return to the camp for breakfast and spend the heat of the day relaxing in the shade of the camp trees while sharing stories and experiences from living in the bush. We will enjoy lunch at the camp and then venture out again on another bush walk. We will enjoy talking about the tracks and spoor of the animals, something that is very difficult from the confines of a vehicle.

We will return to camp at sunset and start a comforting fire to sit around and enjoy all the sounds of the wilderness that we will be sharing the for the night. Dinner will be served at camp.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

 

Day 6. Kruger National Park ( non fenced, private rustic campsite Nyahiri)

We will be up at sunrise this morning and enjoy the fresh smells and sharp sounds that signal the start of a new day in the wild bushveld. After a cup of hot coffee we will head out again on foot, if we are very lucky there may be some fresh animal track nearby that we may investigate if it is deemed safe. We will return to camp for breakfast and some time to relax.

At midday we will take a drive to Mopani camp to restock for our last night together and to enjoy lunch at the camp restaurant, own expense. We will then return to our rustic camp and set off on a last afternoon walk. What a great experience this will prove to be.

Tonight we will enjoy dinner at camp and enjoy each others company for one last night in the wild.

Meals Included: Breakfast and Dinner

Day 7. Kruger to Johannesburg

We will be up early this morning and you will enjoy one last morning walk while we take down the camp and prepare for departure. When you return we will serve breakfast and then depart the camp for the return journey to Johannesburg.
