There are daily flights at regular intervals with South African Airways and Kulula.com between Mpumalanga–Kruger Airport and Johannesburg, and once daily between Mpumalanga-Kruger Airport and Cape Town. There are also flights available to and from Victoria Falls as well as Maputo in Mozambique.
You will be met at the airport near Nelspruit from where you will be transferred to Kruger National Park. Kruger National Park is South Africa’s largest and best known game reserve.
The bio-diversity of the park is extraordinary. More than 600 species of birds and numerous plant species can be found in addition to a variety of big game, of which the Big Five are often sighted.
You will have an open safari vehicle with a very knowledgeable game ranger to serve all your needs, 24 hours a day. Game drives will be unlimited. The pace will be set by your group.
One game walk is included. This game walk will be with game rangers from Kruger National Park. Other guests in the Park will also probably also partake on this game walk.
The rest camp (lodge) where you will overnight depends on availability of accommodation at the time of your booking.
To stay outside of the Kruger National Park is just not the same experience as within the Park. The accommodation might be more luxurious outside of the Park and Temba Tours are aware that you would be able to have a better hotel in your home country or elsewhere in South Africa. The hotel should certainly not be your first priority when you are on safari.
Keep in mind that Kruger National Park is fenced off. If you stay outside the park you simply miss the activities of the game at night. Over and above this is the fact that a Kruger National Park Safari is an experience offering far more than just game drives. The barbeque fires in the rest camps add to the atmosphere, while the night sounds all add to make a Kruger Safari the highlight of any South African tour.
On a Temba Safari you will certainly experience all of the above. Accommodation in Kruger National Park is in chalets. The locals call it “luxury” but it is certainly not five star accommodation. However, it will be clean, air-conditioned and you will have a veranda where you can relax. All rest camps have curio shops and other convenience stores, a large swimming pool as well as a good restaurant.
This tour includes all meals, all game activities and return airport transfers. The first bottle of wine at dinner will be suggested by your private game ranger at his discretion and he or she will also settle the bill. All other beverages will be for your own account.
