Greater Kruger National Park - Arrive
Arrive independently to Johannesburg OR Tambo International Airport where your V.I.P meet & greet service will meet you at the door of your aircraft and assist you through immigration, baggage collection and customs. You will then transfer to your shuttle flight to Southern Sabi Sands. From the Sabi Sabi airstrip you will then transfer by road to the wonderful Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge.
As you bump along the park roads, the sun warm upon your face and air dry in the back of your throat, your senses are on high alert. This is the real Africa, cut away from the hectic pace of life, home to Africa's Big 5. The Kruger is alive, from the nervously twitching herd of impala after a night of predator action, to the wild dog cavorting like domestic pets alongside the road. Marvel as a herd of elephant simply appear from out the bush, then silently vanish back into the landscape.
You will arrive at your lodge and settle into your beautiful room. There may be time for some safari activities today before enjoying your first unforgettable boma dinner.
Sabi Sands - On Safari
With over 2 million hectares of pristine wilderness, the Kruger's biodiversity sustains numerous species of game and birds. The dry north consists of Baobab trees, scrubland and rocky outcroppings which can be seen for miles and animals tend to gather around water sources. As you come south, the park gets busier, animal numbers increase and the backdrop changes to grassland and acacia woodlands.
On the western borders, private reserves such as Sabi Sands open onto the Kruger, offering an exclusive game experience with the flexibility of night drives and off-road 4 x 4 safaris. The Sabi Sands is a private 65,000-hectare reserve known as one of the few places that you can see the Big 5 in one day. It has a diverse habitat with the Sand and Sabi Rivers running through it, a huge range of wildlife and a reputation for big cat sightings. Head out for an early morning game drive in open vehicles, stopping for a refreshing coffee break and a chance to listen to the sounds of the bush whilst admiring the landscape. After some down-time and a siesta back at camp, set off again in the late afternoon when the bush comes alive. Sundowners as night falls, then spotlights come out in search of a new range of creatures. Swaying to the movement of an open vehicle while wrapped warmly against the night chills, is an unforgettable experience. The call of a Nightjar darting overhead and the flash of eyes reflected from the bushes brings an entirely different twist to your safari and as you drop your head back and look up - the crisp night skies go on forever. For those needing to expend some energy, a guided walking safari is an ideal way to learn about smaller animals and plants.
Fly to Mozambique
As you bid farewell to Kruger National Park, you will take your transfer (via road and shuttle flight) this morning to Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport for your flight to Vilanculos Airport in Mozambique.

Azura Benguerra Island is one of the world’s most undiscovered, pristine environments.
