We'll start our  8  days off at the southern part of the park spending 3 nights covering most of the Southern Part. The area is famous for leopards sightings and large prides of lions some with overlapping territories and game which is attracted to this area by Sabie and Crocodile River.​


On day 4 we will move northbound  towards the central part of Kruger. They don't call this area the lion country for no reason. It is located in the grasslands of Kruger which attracts many grazers and in turn predators. There are busy waterholes just outside the camp and animals can  be spotted from bungalows or restaurants area. We'll spend 2 full days in this area visiting well known lion territories.​ 


We'll check out on day 6 and make our way farther north to Shingwedzi, where we will spend our final 2 nights.Shingwedzi lies in the northern part of the Kruger National Park in the heart of mopane country.A scenic game drive along the Shingwedzi River in a south-easterly direction towards the Kanniedood Dam is one of the most rewarding drives in the Park. Waterbuck, nyala, kudu and elephant are often seen here and the bird life is prolific. Staying overnight at Shingwedzi is an experience that will last a lifetime. It is a rustic camp that still carries the essence of the bush and is untouched by modern technology. Experience magical evenings where the accommodation is arranged in two separate circles and the glow emanating from braai (barbecue) stands cast a tranquil spell.

We'll explore this area and spend the afternoon of day 7 at Parufi camp area. 

The Pafuri Border Camp lies in the northern most part of the Kruger National Park, in close proximity to Punda Maria, near the confluence of the Luvubu and Limpopo rivers. Visitors will find themselves in some of the most potentially productive birding territory in South Africa.
