Kruger & Sabi Sand Reserve Big Cat Safari Tour
This is a 9-day Big Cat Safari Tour to South Africa’s Greater Kruger National Park and is a relaxed-paced trip available as a set-departure tour (or on request) where you can expect to see around 30 mammals, including three big cat species and over 300 species of bird. This safari offers undoubtedly the most readily accessible big cat safari holiday in Southern Africa, as well as some of the finest game viewing and photographic opportunities. This is especially true when it comes to the big cats and other magnificent wildlife like elephants and rhinos, all to be seen on this unique safari in the Greater Kruger National Park.
"We very much enjoyed our week exploring the South Cape region, Western Seashore Park, and Little Karoo and week and a half adventure from Johannesburg through Kruger National Park and back! It was the fall season but still we saw 350 species of birds and about 20 species of mammals. Excellent, experienced and well informed tour guides." -Teresa Norris.
Covering a huge swathe of remarkably diverse woodland savanna in the north-east corner of the country, this park and the adjacent private reserves are easily accessible by road and air. Unlike some other large parks in the sub-region, there’s no need for expensive charter flights or bone-jarring road journeys and, after landing at Skukuza Airport, one can be on your big cat safari in Kruger Park and game viewing minutes later!
The park is some 350 kms long from north to south and offers a wonderful array of different types of landscapes, from the well-wooded hills and rock outcrops of the south-west to the open basalt plains in the central region, and is home to over 500 bird species, 137 mammal species, 119 reptile species, 33 species of amphibians and nearly 50 species of fish.
This big cat safari ventures into the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and offers a cherry-on-the-top experience, with close-up encounters with big cats that have been known to be highlights of a lifetime for participants. Photographic opportunities abound and keen photographers are known to return from a 9-day tour with 10 000 plus images stored on their memory cards and hard drives.
