For a selection of lodges and hotels near to the Skukuza Airport or OR Tambo International Airport, have a look at our selection below. Many of these lodges and hotels offer a free shuttle service to and from the airport bus terminal.
We make use of a trusted Shuttle Services, a transfer company that shuttles guests to and from the Kruger National Park from the bus terminal. The shuttle leaves at 6:45 am and we ask that guests be at the shuttle by 6:30 am. (Please don’t be late they have to depart in these specific time slots)
You arrive in Marloth Park, where you will be staying for the duration of your stay, at 12:00 pm to 13:00 pm. Met by one of our experienced safari guides, you will be transferred to your accommodation and have some time to relax and settle in before heading off on your first safari at 14:30 pm. This first safari is an afternoon/sunset tour. As the Sun warms the African bush throughout the morning and mid-day the animals seek shelter in the shade from the blistering sun and become inactive. As the afternoon approaches watering holes and dams will be the most popular site to visit and see animals. As the temperatures begin to cool in the late afternoon animals will start to move towards the water to hydrate.
With the sun setting over the African bush, the sun sets appear redder and redder as it gets closer to the horizon. This makes the perfect opportunity to enjoy a magnificent red sky African Sunset. This presents photographers with the most beautiful photos to be taken.
You will be accompanied by a highly qualified and well-experienced guide who will be able to educate and give you an insight on a variety of topics while searching for the famous “Big 5”! Our guides will do their best to make your Kruger National Park experience a memory that will not be forgotten.
Just before the park closes for the day, we journey back to the accommodation. At your accommodation you will have some personal time to relax and enjoy a filling dinner at the restaurant.
The next morning is quite an early one, so we suggest getting enough rest the night before.
