Pick-up at Nelspruit Airport will be at 13h15 PM. Please do ensure that your local flight to Nelspruit Airport  lands at 11h30 AM for local flights and 9h00 AM for international flights so that you will be on time for pick-up. Pick-up and drop-off at Skukuza Airport is included (as these flights match the safari times perfectly).

You will go out on your first Game Drive (SANParks Sunset Drive) after settling into your accommodation. Guests taking the 11 am shuttle will have a night drive. This sunset or night drive will reward you with spectacular African wildlife at night. SANParks’s rangers might return after the normal rest camp  closing times and other guests may join this drive.

Our game ranger and host will pick you up at reception after the sunset game drive and before the night drive for dinner. A tasty complimentary dinner is included at the restaurant within the Kruger National Park (each guest will have R250 to choose meals and drinks – tips already included).
