Itinerary

Join Johannesburg

Upon arrival at Johannesburg’s OR Tambo International Airport, please make your way to the Information counter in the International Arrivals Hall where you will meet a representative from Safari Club Hotel who will arrange your complimentary shuttle. Check in and spend the rest of the day/evening at leisure. Overnight: Safari Club Hotel.

Leave Johannesburg, transfer to private nature reserve in the Greater Kruger area

Safari Club Hotel will provide a complimentary transfer for you, to the coach terminal at Johannesburg’s OR Tambo International Airport. You should be at this coach terminal by latest 06.30am, for departure at 07.00am of your shuttle which will transfer you to Klaserie Nature Reserve, which shares unfenced boundaries with Kruger National Park. The journey takes approximately 5.5 hours, with 2 comfort stops along the way. We will meet our ranger at Hoedspruit, from where we will transfer to our bush camp in the Greater Kruger National Park. This afternoon there will be game viewing in a combination of walking and driving. To get a feel for the African wilderness after dark there will also be a night drive on one of your evenings here. As the diurnal animals and birds prepare for sleep, and the nocturnal ones awaken, the sounds change and a whole new world unfolds. Our permanent campsite has safari chalets with ensuites, is private and secluded and is not open to day visitors. It is unfenced and designed to blend in with the natural environment, adding to the wilderness feel. The camp is serviced by a cook and a camp attendant and every safari is accompanied by one or two experienced and armed game rangers. Dinner and overnight: Africa on Foot Camp.

Walking and driving safaris with experienced game rangers

In the morning, we will set off at first light after a quick breakfast of biscuits and a hot drink. Enjoying the cool morning air we may walk directly from camp, or use a vehicle to drive further out before commencing our walk. The ranger will decipher the tracks and signs left by the passing animals during the night. The thrill of walking, tracking and getting up close to wildlife is an unforgettable experience. During the walk we will concentrate on all the interesting things that are missed when game viewing by vehicle such as trees, plants, insects and birds. A big breakfast will be prepared back at camp, and then there will be time to relax and have a rest during the heat of the day. After lunch we will head out again on a walk/ drive combination activity. A cool drink in a beautiful location in the Reserve, while watching a stunning African sunset, concludes an inspiring day. Back at camp a hearty supper and a warm campfire will be waiting for us. After a long but rewarding day it is comforting to drift off to sleep listening to the sounds of the night beneath a sky full of stars that seems to stretch beyond the horizon. *Note: the combination of walks and drives in an open safari vehicle are dependent on weather and animal movements at the discretion of the rangers. Dinner and overnight: Africa on Foot Camp.

Last game walk, return to Johannesburg, trip concludes

We will go out for one last early morning walk today, appreciating our new-found knowledge of animal tracking and observations. After breakfast back at camp, we pack up and say our goodbyes before being transferred to Hoedspruit and back to Johannesburg International Airport, where trip concludes. Arrival in Johannesburg is around 18:00hrs. We recommend booking flights for onward travel after 20:00hrs or spending an additional night in Johannesburg.

Additional Information

Revel in an intimate safari lodge experience in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, bordering the Kruger National Park and Timbavati Game Reserve. There is no tarmac here and this is real bush and big game country. Elephants and other game roam through our comfortable and rustic bush lodge, which is the perfect base for exploration. Viewing wildlife on foot with our expert game rangers offers a breathtaking safari experience like no other. Game drives complement our experience by covering greater distance and allowing a different perspective to the thrill of spotting wildlife. At night the campfire and sounds of the African bush make for a truly special wilderness adventure.
