Collection from MQP or KMIA:
If you’re flying into Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport, your Game Ranger will pick you up off your midday flight. Then there’s a leisurely 40-minute drive up to the Kruger National Park, where we enter the game-rich Southern region of the park by the Numbi Gate.
From Numbi Gate we drive to Nkambeni tented lodge which is situated 10km west of the camp of Pretoriuskop within the Kruger National Park.
The lodge consists of Luxury timber and canvas suites with twin beds, bathroom en-suite with an indoor and outdoor shower, as well as a viewing deck overlooking the African Bushveld, where you may spot various antelope, elephants, rhino or lion coming down to the waterhole in front of the dining area where the resident Hippo are at play. You may also wish to enjoy an afternoon swim before dinner. A full bar is also available for all drinks and sundowners. This lodge is totally eco - friendly without impacting on the environment.
Once check in has been completed and a refreshing drink served on arrival you will be escorted to your suite. A afternoon game drive takes place from 15h00pm till gate closing. Dinner will be served in the dining hall at 19h00pm where a buffet dinner will be served with various salads, vegetables and meats, catering for Vegetarians, Vegans and Meat lovers. A dessert table is also offered with numerous desserts, tea and coffee is also available to enjoy after dinner.
Everything starts early in the Kruger park in order to have a greater chance of seeing the elusive cats still on the prowl. Breakfast will be enjoyed before this activity or after depending on your guides itinerary for the day. You will return to camp mid – afternoon.
You once again depart on a sunset/night drive returning to camp after dark for a sumptuous dinner served once again in the dining room overlooking the waterhole.
This morning after breakfast at 08h00 am we depart for the Panorama Route stopping off at the Three Rondavels, viewing the Blyde River Canyon and take a trip down into the Gorge at Gods Window returning to Nkambeni for lunch. After lunch at 15h30pm enjoy another afternoons game drive returning to camp at gate closing. Dinner is served on the deck at 19h00pm.
This morning you have the opportunity of going out on another early morning game drive before we depart at 10h00am back to Nelspruit.
It’s time to start back towards Johannesburg, and your last morning’s game drive will bring you into contact with large herds of Impala as we head on our way towards the Numbi Gate. Your driver will drop you off in Johannesburg at 16h00pm.
Drop-off back at Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport
If you’re flying out of one of the airports close to the Kruger Park, you will probably be lucky enough to spend an extra couple of hours viewing game. Your ranger will ensure that you leave the park in plenty of time to catch your flight from either Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA) or Mpumalanga Airport (MQP)
