5 DAY KRUGER TOUR FULLY ACCOMMODATED
The Mpumalanga area is one of great contrast, bordered in the west by the towering escarpment with lush indigenous forests, crystal-clear streams and plunging waterfalls, and then falling away into the flat Lowveld bushveld, home to one of the richest diversities of fauna and flora in the world.

Various private reserves and the renowned Kruger National Park are located in this area. We spend time both in the Park and on our own adjacent private reserve. Being privately owned we are able to conduct game walks and open vehicle game drives on our property.

DAY 1: JOHANNESBURG - BUSH LODGE

Departing at 06h30 from Drifters Johannesburg Lodge, we travel the scenic road to Mpumalanga. Along the way we visit Dullstroom, traverse Robbers Pass and spend time at the quaint historic town of Pilgrim's Rest. We also visit Bourke's Luck Potholes and the Blyde River Canyon. Thereafter we wind our way down the escarpment to the Lowveld bushveld where we overnight in our well appointed DRIFTERS BUSH CAMP. Being adjacent to the Kruger Park, the tented camp is tastefully designed, totally blends in with the environment, and offers comfortable beds, en-suite bathrooms, a refreshing splash pool, and stunning views over the surrounding bush. Dinner tonight is cooked on the open fire. D

DAY 2: BUSH LODGE

We start the day with the customary coffee and rusks, before setting off on a game walk. We walk for approximately 3 hours in search of game, stopping regularly to learn more about the ways of the bush. A Drifters guide and tracker lead all walks. Return to the Lodge for a late morning brunch after which it's time to relax around the pool and to enjoy the surroundings. In the afternoon we conduct and open-vehicle game drive, which develops into an extensive night drive. Being in the bush at night provides us with the opportunity of viewing nocturnal animals, otherwise not normally seen. This evening we enjoy a hearty bush "braai" and again fall asleep to the sounds of the wild. Brunch ; D

DAY 3 : KRUGER NATIONAL PARK

We leave our bush Lodge in the morning to travel the short distance to the world-renowned Kruger National Park where we spend the remainder of the day viewing animals from the high vantage point of our vehicle. Enjoy a picnic lunch. Accommodation is in one of the park's rest camps. B L D

DAY 4 : HAZYVIEW

After breakfast and another extensive drive in search of the "Big Five" and variety of other animals that inhabit the Park, we exit and head for the sleepy settlement of Hazyview. Our next stop is the DRIFTERS HAZYVIEW LODGE, a spectacular log cabin built on stilts in subtropical indigenous forest right on the Sabie river and offering swimming, bird hide and lovely forest walks.

DAY 5 : HAZYVIEW - JOHANNESBURG

After a relaxed morning we depart to arrive in Johannesburg in the late afternoon.
