The casual visitor to South Africa may find themselves enchanted by the endless open landscapes and sweeping plains, but a deeper look reveals how truly diverse this country is. From bustling cities to vast open areas, high mountain peaks to the desolate Karoo, adventure can be found almost anywhere.
This tour takes you northeast through the vast open areas of Mpumalanga and Limpopo, where you'll have the chance to explore Kruger National Park and walk the same grounds as Africa's famed "Big 5," (Africa's five big game animals: the lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo). You'll be traveling in reliable, custom-built safari trucks that offer enhanced visibility and comfort. Your veteran guides from Drifters Adventure Tours will introduce you to southern Africa's diverse wildlife and absolutely stunning landscapes before taking you deeper to the southern section of Kruger.
Known for its population of rare Cape wild dogs and big elephant herds, southern Kruger features some truly breathtaking scenery. You'll drive the plains in an open vehicle, go on a bush walk for a more personal safari experience, study the behavior of the animals with help from an experienced guide, and sleep in cozy lodges within the park. In between, you'll travel the famous Panorama route, with its picturesque canyons, waterfalls, and mountains. This tour allows the nature enthusiast the opportunity of a lifetime to experience one of the most unique ecosystems on Earth.
