South Africa has always been abundantly blessed with great destinations and tourist attractions making it one of the top travel destinations in the entire world. The Kruger park is one of the largest and most animal populated game reserves in Africa and is situated in the northern parts of South Africa. Timbavati safari lodge is situated within the park which contains the big 5 as well as many unique species of insects, birds and fauna & flora. In this article, we will take a look at the various forms of safaris on offer within the Kruger park and Timbavati Safari lodge.
Different Types of Safaris:
- Full Day Kruger Park Safari – Our full day safari takes you through the extraordinary landscapes of the Kruger National Park in the company of one of our vastly qualified guides and drivers of the bush tailored game cars. The guides are experts in sensing and following the movements of wildlife, so there are excellent chances of an abundance of spectacular wildlife sightings and rare photographic and video memories.
- Elephant Back Safari – Clients are seated on a comfortable canvas-covered saddle attached behind an experienced elephant handler. From this vantage point, they are able to view game, antelope, giraffe and zebra up close as the elephants move without a sound in single file through the bush. It is also promising to see the Big Five as the reserve contains lions, wild elephant, leopard, rhino, and buffalo.
- Walking Safari – The game rangers begin each walking safari with an all-inclusive briefing on how to behave when facing animals on foot as they are frequently sighted on these safaris. Witness the glorious sunset whilst getting up close and personal with the unbelievable wildlife. The walks always cover new terrain, ensuring a complete experience.
- Hot air balloon safari – It is never possible to guarantee any sighting of any game, but your chances greatly increase when taking to the skies on one of these amazing safaris. Experience watching wild animals go about their daily business while taking in one of Africa’s breathtaking sunrises to boot.
With top quality accommodation, food, activities as well as having friendly, qualified and experienced guides, Timbavati is sure to provide you with the ultimate African safari experience.
