    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.

Frequently Asked Questions

    • 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!

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

      Intrepid offers a pre-arranged airport transfer option at an additional cost for this tour and they recommend that if this is your first time in Johannesburg or if you are travelling alone, you pre-book an arrival transfer. Just contact our Customer Support team to arrange this. If you wish to make your own way to the hotel, metered official Airport Taxis are also available.

    • What are the optional excursions?

      The optional excursions for this tour are:

      Kruger National Park - Day trip. Price: ZAR1450
      Private Game Reserve - Big 5 game drive. Price: ZAR800

      Please be advised that this list is a guideline only and all prices are subject to change.

    • Can you assist with booking additional accommodation?

      Of course, we can! Once you have a confirmed booking on this tour, we can request additional accommodation for you with the tour operator.

    • What is the age range?

      The minimum age requirement for this tour is 6 years old, which means that children under 6 years of age are not eligible to join this tour. There is no maximum age limit for this tour and according to Intrepid, it is all about shared attitude, not age.

    • I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

      If you are travelling solo on this tour, a mandatory single supplement will be added to your booking.

    • Do I need a visa?

      As a tour booking website, TourRadar cannot organise visas for you on your behalf as the visa requirements are regularly being updated and vary for the nationality of one traveller to the next. It is for this reason that we recommend checking with your local embassy or consulate website for the latest up to date information.
