ABOUT ZINAVE NATIONAL PARK
The Park is undoubtedly one of the world’s greatest game experiences. Over the past few years, reunification efforts have been successfully executed; removing dividing fences that once separate the land, and animal movements, between adjoining reserves and national park territory. This unhindered landscape now offers increased game visibility and fosters more natural migratory movements, benefiting the health and vitality of game, and landscape, for even better viewing experiences.
This international transfrontier park now shares seamless borders with Mozambique, Zimbabwe and South Africa forming over 20,000 square km of uninterrupted African wilderness. A stunning home to the big 5 with the full range of Africa’s famous carnivores,
Kruger inhabits 18 species of antelope, 110 species of reptiles, 35 amphibians as well as 500+ birds and a myriad of insects.
Most wild animals are active at dawn and dusk, so to see them we’ll have to be too. Expect early starts to your days (seasonal dependent, from 4:30 to 6am) softened by a hearty breakfast pleasantly prepared by your guide.
We’ll spend about 4-hours searching for wildlife, followed by 1 hour lunch break at a rest camp (restaurants on-site) before we end the day with another 4-hour excursions through Kruger. When we see something, we always positions the vehicle with camera angles in mind and also cut the engine to more fully enjoy the animals in as natural a setting as possible.
Remember, our guides are there at every step, ensuring your trip in an exciting, comfortable, and once-in-a-lifetime experience worthy of reminiscing.
To get the most out of your Kruger safari tour, each evening you’ll experience a new rest camp as we traverse the Park’s southerly reaches, going as far north as the Shingwedzi River. This affords our clients the opportunity to witness a larger breadth of the park’s vast landscapes and game.
After a full day of driving filled with excitement, you’ll need a quality place to unwind and rest and we offer splendid accommodation options scattered throughout the Park. Each establishment is a highly provisioned luxurious experience, nestled into the natural surroundings and positioned for optimum wildlife sightings. Your party will stay in high-end bungalow or family chalets, depending on group’s size, and enjoy lunch and evening meals at the camp’s well stocked dining facilities.
We’ll spend our time focused in the South of the Park, where most animals congregate, so our camp options could include any of the following sites: Berg en Dal, Pretoriuskop, Skukuza, Lower Sabie, Satara.
Occasionally, due to client flights and strictly enforced park access times, our first evening will be spent at a game lodge just outside the entrance, however, where feasible we’ll spend all three evenings getting lost, figuratively not literally, in Africa’s wild beauty.
You’ll be logging in fair amount of road time, so having a comfortable and reliable 4x4 vehicle is crucial to a safe and enjoyable journey. Our specifically designed and remodeled safari vehicle is always professionally maintained, undergoing rigorous pre and post-trip inspection, giving us confidence, each journey will be a safe and pleasurable ride.
With access to a fleet of game-viewing quality CAR NAME, we never have issues accommodating our group’s various overland needs as well as providing unique, with windows particularly designed for, photographing opportunities during your safari or on the transfers within.
