The 2-night/3-day Kruger safari tour offers a different and exciting excursion to guests who don’t mind roughing it slightly to enjoy the privilege of a unique African bushveld experience. Guests stay in rustic but comfortable treehouses at a bushveld lodge on a private game situated on the border of the Kruger National Park. The treehouses are nestled in a riverine forest with views of the Klaserie River and a busy waterhole. The tour is a combination of guided sunrise bush walks, Big Five safari tours with a professional safari guide in an open safari vehicle and evenings spent under the stars enjoying an authentic African bushveld braai (barbeque). The 3-day Treehouse Kruger Safari ends with a tour of the Panorama Route which includes the world-renowned Blyde River Canyon and the Three Rondavels.
