Guests are collected from most Johannesburg hotels or OR Tambo Airport and head eastwards on a scheduled shuttle service to the Kruger National Park in the province of Mpumalanga, ‘the place where the sun rises’.

Check in and freshen up, before embarking on an afternoon’s game drive in an open safari vehicle. The Kruger National Park forms part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park. This peace park links South Africa’s Kruger National Park with Zimbabwe’s Gonarezhou National Park in the north and with Mozambique’s Limpopo National Park in the east. At 20 000 km2 the park is roughly half the size of the Netherlands.

Return to the hotel and enjoy dinner before retiring for the night.

The park’s diversity ensures an unforgettable bushveld experience.

The tour stops for lunch (own account) in a rest camp within the park.

What Clients’ Say

We really appreciate our clients feedback on their African Blue experience as we are constantly striving to improve our service levels and selection of tour and safari experiences.

“I used African Blue Tours for a 3 day Kruger Safari trip. Although it was on short-notice everything went very well and David did everything to make my wishes come true. The accommodation, transport and safari were exactly like it was described before or even better. It was just an awesome experience and I can definitely recommend to book with African Blue Tours. Thank you, David!”
