The Kruger National Park and its surrounding area include some of Africa’s most stunning sights. From Bourke’s Luck Potholes to the third-largest canyon in the world and breathtaking vistas of the nearby mountains, valleys, waterfalls, rivers, streams, and many other natural features. Explore one of Southern Africa’s most incredible wildlife and picturesque locations by combining all of this with the renowned Kruger National Park and the nearby private game reserves. Canyon is home to such natural beauties as God’s Window, the Bourke’s Luck Potholes, the Three Rondavels, and Pinnacle Rock. It is set against the Greater Drakensberg escarpment. Many tourists who travel to this area appreciate the panoramic beauty that results from combining the Panorama Route with first-rate wildlife viewing in the Kruger National Park to create an unforgettable itinerary in Mpumalanga.
We will leave Johannesburg at 8:30 am and travel on some of the most beautiful roads to the Mpumalanga Lowveld region of South Africa. We’ll stop for lunch en there in Schoemanskloof, one of seven breathtaking locations along Mpumalanga’s Highlands meander. We will continue to Hazyview after our lunch break. We’ll spend the following two nights in a lodge that is located just outside the Kruger National Park, giving us the chance to quickly and easily visit the park to observe animals and begin experiencing the natural beauty and fauna of this country.
We’ll get up early on this day because we want to go into the southern area of the Kruger National Park as soon as possible for our full day of game viewing. You may view a variety of creatures, including rhinos, wild canines, herds of buffalo, and elephants, in the park’s southern region. Since the South often has a little more water than the North, it naturally attracts more animals, including other predators like lions and hyenas. Our day is spent driving around looking for wildlife animals. Nevertheless, we will frequently pause at several of the parks’ rest camps for some stretching and comfort breaks as well as a few waterholes along the way. We will leave the park in the late afternoon and return to our overnight accommodations.
After a solid night’s sleep, we’ll start the day a little more casually and savor a sumptuous breakfast at the lodge. Then, if anyone wants to participate in some adventurous activities, we’ll head off at our leisure to a neighboring activity center. Following our picnic lunch in the forest, we’ll travel a short distance to see one of the region’s most breathtaking waterfalls. You are also permitted to swim if you so like, so don’t forget your bathing suits! Before leisurely making our way to our lodging in Graskop, we will spend as much time as we like at the waterfall. We shall pay for our own dinner tonight in town.
After a peaceful night’s sleep, we awaken with the light and eat a hearty breakfast before leaving. As we travel along the historic Panorama Route today, we’ll make stops at several of the notable landmarks that earned the route its name. God’s Window, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, and the Blyde River Canyon, the third-largest canyon in the world, are a few of today’s highlights. On the way today, we will make a lunch stop at our own expense. We will spend a significant amount of time at each stop to ensure that we enjoy what we see and receive the full experience. The Panorama Route truly delivers some of the most distinctive and intriguing scenery in South Africa. We’ll go to the Greater Kruger National Park in the afternoon, where we’ll also enjoy a really great afternoon sun-downer game drive. We will make our accommodations for the following two nights after our game drive, during which we hope to view more incredible animals.
We shall watch the dawn while sipping on some coffee and rusks in the early morning. We’ll go on a bush walk this morning to experience how animals move and discover more about the minute, intricate aspects of how everything in nature works together. This morning, pay attention to the footprints and other traces that the animals leave behind as they go about their daily activities. Also, point out any noteworthy details we come across. It would be a bonus if we came across any animals on our walk because they typically have more acute senses than we do. We return to the lodge, where we will have brunch, slowly as the day begins to heat up. We will set off on an afternoon game drive later in the day when it starts to drop off a bit and the animals start to get more active. We will travel a little further here, which will offer us a fantastic opportunity to see some wildlife.
We will leave the Greater Kruger National Park region and slowly travel back to Johannesburg after another early-morning bushwalk and a leisurely meal. We will pass through the tiny town of Dullstroom, which is also referred to as the Fly Fishing Capital of South Africa, and have lunch your own expense. After returning to Johannesburg in the late afternoon, the tour will come to a conclusion.
