Emma "Thank you for five amazing days! The guides were funny and knew som much stuff that I've never heard of before. The room was like stepping into a dream and I wish I could have taken that bed with me home! The wifi was fast and very cheap just remember thornhill2. The vegetarian food was one of the best I've had on the trip and the desserts- I could have eaten tons of them. Great help from Chris an..."

    Animal sighting in chosen area was not good, they should have chosen a better area for safari. Panorama trip could have been done on the last day back to johanesburg to save time.

    The trip in Kruger was not what I expected, focus was on the Orpen gate area, the different gides was good and new where to go to find the different animals. Transportation from Johannesburg to Kruger was a nightmare, the driver was speeding and we were... Read more

    Outstanding in every phase. The game drives were wonderful. As was the lodge staff. The lodge itself. And the food.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      The tour operator has advised that they do not have a hotel list available for this tour, as all accommodations are subject to change until 4-6 weeks before the departure date. After the booking is made you will be issued your final trip documents with your specific accommodation details. That being said, on this tour you will be staying 4 nights in lodges - hopefully, this can give you an idea of the kind of accommodation you can expect on tour.

    • When and where does the tour end?

      After yet another day packed with amazing experiences, you will arrive back to Johannesburg, where you can be dropped off at the airport or at any nominated Johannesburg or Pretoria hotel. The tour operator does not recommend booking any international flights until after 10 pm.

    • When and where does the tour start?

      The Kruger Short Break tour starts very early in the morning on the first day of the tour, so it is recommended that you arrive at least one day prior to the tour to settle in. If you are staying at the Holiday Inn Rosebank you will be picked up at 6 am on Day 1, however, if you are staying at an alternate hotel you will be picked up from 5:30 am onwards. You will then depart Johannesburg, the 'City of Gold' and head off on an adventure of a lifetime!

      Brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble. Very helpful sorting out my booking for four to surprise a family from Australia doing this cruise. Talked to representative’s in Australia & Canada at different times. Well done to all that have helped.
