Day 1: Johannesburg to the Lodge & Sunset Safari Drive on the Priavet game Reserve
The shuttle bus departs from Johannesburg's OR Tambo Airport at 6:45 am, from right outside International Arrivals. The drive takes 6-7 hours and you travel through a few touristic towns en route to the town of Hoedspruit. Of course, you make scheduled and unscheduled stops for the bathroom, to stretch your legs and to buy some snacks or refreshments along the way.
On arrival at the Lodge, you will get a brief orientation and then checked into your room. There is time to freshen up and enjoy a light snack before you set off on a sunset safari drive in the Reserve. Safari drives will be accompanied by a ranger or guide who has a comprehensive knowledge of all flora and fauna found in the Reserve. They are all very passionate people who have a special ability to teach you about nature. You arrive back at the camp as the sun is almost completely gone and you can sip on a refreshing drink or coffee at the camp dining area before sitting down to dinner. Dinner is served and you have a choice from a three-course meal including starters, main course, and dessert. After dinner, spend sometime around the fire sharing stories of the day before retiring to your room for a good night’s rest.
Day 2-4: Morning & Afternoon Safari Drives on the Private Game Reserve
Each day your safari begins with early morning tea or coffee and a light snack before venturing into the Reserve in search of Africa’s Big Five (rhino, leopard, lion, buffalo, and elephant) and the variety of other wild animals and birds that inhabit the area. You return to the Lodge to enjoy a hearty breakfast. There is no time to relax, have a swim or enjoy a SPA treatment before lunch is served. After lunch take a nap before high tea and your afternoon/ sunset safari drive. We return to the Lodge after the safari drive where dinner is served under the stars depending upon the weather.
Day 5: Morning Safari Drive on the Private Reserve & Transfer to Johannesburg
Today your safari trip comes to an end. However, there is still an exciting morning safari game drive planned. You will get a wakeup call from your guide and make your way down to the dining area for tea and coffee which will be served with biscuits before departing on your morning adventure. You will have the opportunity to spot animals that have eluded you thus far. Arriving back at the lodge after the safari drive, you enjoy breakfast then check-out from your rooms. You are collected at the lodge for your return trip to Johannesburg via beautiful landscapes and quaint towns. Your safari ends back in Johannesburg at approximately 17:30.
