Our African Sunrise Safari greets the dawn chorus at 06h00am (Oct - April) and 06h30am (May - Sept)Guests will either self drive to the designated Kruger Park Gate or have their accommodation transfer them for the early morning start. To ensure that our guests get the most out of their safari drive we recommend departing from either Phabeni or Numbi gate. These gates are located within 10km of Hazyview being the closest main town. Our guests are kindly requested to pre-sign the Safaria Indemnity form as well as provide ID to their resort or lodge in advance so that we can ensure a quick and easy access through the Parks gates on the morning your safari. We will enter the gates shortly after opening and your professional guide will introduce you to the splendour of the Kruger National Park, reading the mornings tracks and signs.Between 08h30 to 09h15 we will stop at one of the rest camps for breakfast (all meals for your own account) before heading out again into the bush. Whilst in the rest camps we will unpack some of the history and iconic landmarks in the camp areas and close vicinity. Part of the magic of Kruger is understanding her history and events that shaped the land. After breakfast we will again head out into the bush for another 3 hours in search of further sightings. Lunch will be around 12h30 at one of the camps. After lunch we slowly make our way back to the designated Gate entrance around 15h30pm where you will be collected by your resort or lodge transport and returned to enjoy your sundowners after a day on safari.What our guests say on TripAdvisor: “Best Game Drive in Kruger / Mpumalanga”"Having experienced many game drives previously in the area, I can confidently say Safaria with Andrew is in a league of its own! A truly 5 Star experience with possibly the warmest and most knowledgeable guide in South Africa. A comprehensive learning experience inclusive of relevant history as well as plant and animal facts. All this is told in the most passionate manner in a luxurious environment! Very highly recommended."
