3-Day Kruger Experience Tour from Johannesburg

Covering nearly 2 million hectares of unrivalled and diverse flora and fauna, the Kruger National Park also boasts immense historical and archaeological sights - a blend only to be found in Africa.  Viewed by many as the flagship of the South African national parks, Kruger is home to an impressive number of species.  Mpumalanga, which means "land of the rising sun" in the local Siswati language, has it all - from exhilarating wildlife, to secluded mountain retreats, ancient ruined cities, wild water sports, and some of South Africa's most diverse and vibrant African cultures. Mirroring the eclectic cultures, the radically different scenery, biome and ecology, offering visitors time in the world's largest green canyon at the Blyde River, highland heaths and ravine forests of Dullstroom, and the sub-tropical woodlands of Nelspruit, all within an hours drive from the iconic Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga, can aptly be viewed as a gateway to the wilderness.Tour highlights include: Sightseeing from Johannesburg via Middelburg, Dullstroom to Pilgrim's Rest; visit the Digging Site and Gold Panning Museum; Panorama Route, encompassing God's Window, Bourke's Luck Potholes, and the spectacular waterfalls in the Blyde River Canyon and its surrounds; Kruger National Park.
