Embark on a full-day Kruger Park Safari from Hoedspruit, and encounter the Big Five with expert guides.


Going on a full day safari is the best way to experience the world-renowned Kruger National Park, departing from Hoedspruit! Home to the largest diversity of wildlife in South Africa with 147 species of large mammals, including the Big 5!
We will collect you early in the morning in Hoedspruit in an Open 4×4 Safari Vehicle for this full-day safari and drive to Orpen Gate (approx. 1 hour from Hoedspruit Town). These vehicles are comfortable and designed to enhance your game-viewing experience by providing you with an optimal view of animals higher than most cars.

The professional and qualified guides will wow you with their knowledge and understanding of the bush and animals. You will go home with gems of knowledge of the bush that you did not know before!
The guide will stop for breakfast and lunch for clients’ own accounts, during the game drive. Kruger Park’s rest camps have a great variety of restaurants and meals to choose from. You may bring along your breakfast packs from your lodge or pack a picnic. Please take note that no alcohol is permitted for day visitors in the park.
