What to expect?
Excitement awaits you as you board a flight from O.R. Tambo international Airport in Johannesburg to Hoedspruit Airport inside the Greater Kruger National Park. You will be met by your Jewel of Africa Safari tour guide who will transfer you to the Guernsey Private Nature Reserve.
Check in and enjoy lunch before you meet with your ranger who will share great pointers on how to spot the wild animals in the bush. After your briefing, you will set off on your first bush walk in the Reserve. During this walk you can expect to see giraffe, buffalo, zebra, wildebeest and impala to name but a few.
Arriving back at camp as the sun is setting, imagine sipping a sundowner drink in the boma in a dry river bed before dinner is served. Enjoy a glass of superb South African wine with a cozy campfire in the background, while your guide points out the Southern Cross star constellation.
We depart early this morning for the Manyeleti Private Game Reserve. This reserve is open to Kruger National Park as well as the Timbavati and the Sabi Sand Private Nature Reserve and has excellent animal viewing opportunities! This reserve is private and exclusive only to rangers in 4x4 vehicles. Here you will have the opportunity to go off-road to get the perfect close-up photo of the wildlife!
You will return to camp for lunch and to enjoy some leisure time before your second game drive of the day. This is “Big 5” country so make sure your cameras are charged and ready at all times - expect the unexpected! As the sun sets you will be back at camp with the opportunity to freshen up before dinner is served!
You might have heard that South Africa is a world-in-one-country and today will bear witness to this as we depart after breakfast and to visit the breath-taking Panorama Route.
The Panorama route is a beautiful winding road situated on top of the magnificent Drakensberg Mountains which is the longest and largest mountain range in South Africa.
God’s Window is a beautiful viewpoint on the edge of the mountain range.
Lisbon Waterfalls and the Berlin Waterfalls are two beautiful falls with an interesting history.
The Blyde River Canyon is the third largest canyon in the world and the biggest all-green canyon in the world.
Bourke's Luck Potholes is where two rivers meet and a truly spectacular sight!
We will enjoy lunch in the lovely little tourist town of Graskop at the famous Harrie’s Pancakes and we will return to the camp before sunset.
The day starts early as you depart on safari in the world-famous Kruger National Park – where nothing is impossible! Your guide will tell you to expect the unexpected. The whole day is devoted inside the Kruger National Park with your Jewel of Africa Safaris private guide in closed air-conditioned vehicle.
Explore this vast 2 million-hectare wildlife haven, roughly the size of Wales, in search of the Big Five today - Lion, Elephant, Buffalo, Leopard and Rhino. Our guides are experts in showing you the hidden intricacies of the animal species, birds, trees, insects and all aspects of the fauna and flora. Enjoy breakfast and lunch at one of the many stopovers.
We return to camp as the sun sets over the African bush. Arriving back at camp, freshen up and enjoy some more of the world famous South African wines while reminiscing about the day’s amazing sightings before dinner is served.
We check out after breakfast and make our way to the nearby endangered species center for a tour of the facility. These animals were rescued from the surrounding area and when the time is right they will be released back into the wild. You can expect to see cheetah, wild dog, leopard, rhino and hyena to name but a few.
Once finished you will be transported back to Hoedspruit airport for your flight to Johannesburg remembering all too well the amazing experience you had the last 5 days!
You may leave Africa,
but Africa will never leave you!
