Kruger & the Panorama Route

A superb holiday with a combination of amazing wildlife and dramatic scenery.

8 days from £2350pp plus international flights.

Exciting game viewing in Timbavati (Kruger), dramatic scenery, and lots of activity! This is some of South Africa's superb wildlife viewing and landscapes all wrapped up in one package.

  • Explore the Panorama Route inc Bourke's Luck Potholes, God's Window and more
  • Chance to visit a wildlife rehabilitation centre and other highlights
  • Superb luxury camp in the famous Timbavati Private Reserve
  • Excellent wildlife viewing, including chances to see the Big 5
  • Night drives

The gorgeous scenery and fascinating sights of the Panorama Route combine with the wilderness and wildlife of the Timbavati Private Game Reserve to make this an unmissable South African holiday.

Based for 3 nights at the lovely Rissington Inn near Hazyview, you are close to the gorgeous Panorama Route, not far from Kruger, and there are so many exciting activities you can choose to do from here.

We have arranged one (shared) tour of the Panorama Route for you, we've left you with a full day to decide what other activity you'd rather do whilst here. The Inn will help you plan and arrange this at the time.

The highlight of this trip, however, must be the wonderful game viewing in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve which shares an unfenced border with Kruger National Park. From antelope to zebra, this region is home to all the animals, birds and reptiles we associate with Africa including, of course, the 'big 5'.

With experienced safari guides, you have a great chance of seeing baboon, elephant, lion, cheetah, hippo, leopard, warthog, wild dog, buffalo, impala - the list just goes on and on. Timbavati is an area of 12,000 hectares with a reputation for diverse wildlife, there are 40 species of mammal recorded and over 360 species of birds. Not much can compare to watching a herd of elephants playing in the mud pools or a lazy pride of lions resting in the heat of the day. This is South Africa at its best!
