Sabie Safaris offers a unique 5 day guided tour to the Kruger National Park and Sabie Park Private Nature Reserve. We will spend our days searching for wildlife favourites such as the Big 5, but will also pay special attention to the smaller parts of the ecosystem, including mammals, birds, reptiles, and plants. A night drive and bush walk are also included in the itinerary.
South Africa Itinerary - 5 Day Guided Tour of Sabie and KrugerGuest accommodation is totally exclusive - a privately owned house surrounded by the tranquillity of nature in the Sabie Park Private Nature Reserve. This reserve is inaccessible to the general public, ensuring guests their privacy and relaxation!
Day 1: Guests are picked up at Nelspruit International Airport from where they will be transported to Sabie Park Private Nature Reserve. After unpacking, we will have our first afternoon game drive in the Kruger National Park. We will return to Sabie Park in the late afternoon to get ready for a delicious buffet dinner at the Protea Hotel.
Day 2: We will rise before the sun and embark on a morning game drive in the Kruger National Park, searching for various animals, including the Big 5 - lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino. Breakfast will be enjoyed at a scenic spot within the Park. Around noon, we will arrive at Skukuza rest camp, where we will enjoy lunch on a deck overlooking the Sabie River. After lunch, we will return to Sabie Park and spend the afternoon relaxing either by the pool or the riverside before going to the Protea Hotel for dinner.
Day 3: We will embark on an early morning bush walk through the Sabie Park Private Nature Reserve. Since most animals are more active during the cooler hours of the morning, we will have the opportunity to encounter giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, ostrich, kudu, impala and several other species on foot. Your trained guide will also take the time to teach you about the different plants, birds, insects, and animal tracks you might come across. Breakfast will be enjoyed at a beautiful picnic pot next to the Sabie River. After breakfast, we will have a short game drive before arriving at Pretoriuskop rest camp for lunch. The afternoon will be spent at the Sabie Park swimming pool or riverside. In the late afternoon, we will depart to the Kruger Gate, from where we will embark on a night drive through the Kruger National Park, searching for nocturnal animals such as lions, leopards, hyenas, genets, bush babies, owls, and several other species. A late dinner will be enjoyed at the Protea Hotel.
Day 4: We will rise early and go on a full day game drive through the Kruger National Park. We will travel north towards Tshokwane - a picnic spot located beneath massive indigenous trees - where we will enjoy our breakfast. From here we will travel to the south-eastern side of the park. We will arrive at Lower Sabie rest camp around noon, just in time for lunch on a riverside deck. After lunch, we will travel to the Lake Panic bird hide - a watering hole for many animal species. Lake Panic is also home to large populations of hippos, crocodiles, and many bird species, which are all sure to be seen. We will return to Sabie Park Private Nature Reserve at dusk and get ready for dinner.
Day 5: We will enjoy a delicious buffet breakfast at the Protea Hotel, after which you will have the chance to browse around the curio shop for arts and crafts. We will then take a final late morning game drive in the Kruger Park before travelling back to Nelspruit.
