Is this trip right for you?

On this itinerary you will have Game Drives in both the Kruger National Park and neighbouring Private Game Reserves.

  • The early morning game drive in Chobe National Park is in an open 4WD vehicle, and it can be quite cold in the morning. It's important to bring some warm clothes with you.

  • There will be many early starts either to make use of the better safari time or to beat the morning traffic on long travel days.

Set off early for a drive to Greater Kruger National Park, arriving just in time for lunch. The afternoon and evening will be spent in a neighbouring game reserve searching for game by spotlight.

Special Information
You may hear of the opportunity to see or interact with Lion Cubs within the Guernsey Private Nature Reserve. We recommend that Peregrine travellers bypass this activity, as it is contrary to Peregrine’s Responsible Travel guidelines. Professional wildlife conservation organisations, including Born Free and the World Society for Protection of Animals (WSPA), advise that habituating lions to humans can shorten their life and may result in lion-human conflict issues. While there is some merit in the argument that the money that you pay for the activity goes towards lion research, we feel that the negative impacts on the lions' rehabilitation far outweigh this.
An early start today sees the group heading into the Kruger National Park itself. The lodge is within the Greater Kruger region, so the drive will take approximately 45 minutes and upon entry, you'll find yourself in the perfect position to catch a glimpse of one, or hopefully all, of the 'Big Five': lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant. Take breakfast at a picnic spot then proceed with a full day of wildlife safari, stopping off at waterholes and various other points to observe these animals in their natural habitat. The group will return to the lodge in the late afternoon and have a free evening to swim, relax and relive their favourite moments from the day.
