Close Encounters

7 Day Big 5 Kruger Safari Experience

Mask Group 9

Are you tired of isolation? Let’s Go and discover a different form of isolation in the wilderness of the Kruger National Park. South Africa has unmasked itself and is waiting to welcome you to the BIG 5 country.

View the lions, leopards, buffalo, elephants, and rhino living freely in their natural environment. Nothing comes close to experiencing the raw power of the lion hunt, the sheer bulk and force of the rhino, the delicacy and grace of the leopard, the supreme confidence of a herd of elephants and the adrenalin racing charge of the African buffalo.

The Guided Safari Game drives in the Kruger National Park and close up encounters with the wildlife and animals is an experience not to be missed. The warm and welcoming environment at the Lodges will ensure you have a unique and memorable Safari Tour.
