JOHANNESBURG TO PLAINS CAMP IN THE KRUGER PARK

DAY 1

Today you make your way to OR Tambo International Airport for your early morning flight to the Kruger Park. You fly directly into the Kruger National Park and be picked up and transferred in an open vehicle to the camp. Plains Camp, an intimate camp made up of 4 stylishly appointed en-suite tents nestled in the shade of a knobthorn cluster.  Here we specialize in bringing an authentic bush experience to life, offering unforgettable and informative guided walking tours designed to bring you closer to nature, finding the often unseen and fascinating aspects of the African bush. 

After settling into your rooms you will go on an afternoon sunset safari drive, returning to camp for dinner.

BUSH WALKS, SAFARI DRIVES & OPTIONAL SLEEP OUTS

DAY 2-4

Walks take place with a maximum of eight guests accompanied by two armed guides. Experience nature intimately, using all five senses.  Marvel at the miracles of nature: from the fascinating minutiae of insect life, vibrant birds, the fragrance of wild herbs and the adrenalin injecting exhilaration of colossal animals and sinewy predators at their own level. Responsible and ethical eco-tourism is our core, and animals and plant life are treated with utmost respect.  Encounter animals in their natural habitat on their terms, knowing that your pleasure is not only not harmful to nature - with no off-road driving, harassment of animals or captivity; but that a percentage of your spend goes directly toward conservation. For the adventurous, take this experience a step further by pre-booking a night at the Sleepout Decks;  spend the night on open sleeping platforms under the stars.  Enjoy a dinner cooked on an open fire by your guide and fall asleep to the sounds of hyenas whooping or the rumble of elephants close by.

Morning Walks take place early to ensure that you return to camp before it gets too hot. The average morning walk takes 3-5 hours, totaling 5-12kms.

The Terrain is fairly even (*see fitness requirements), but comfortable walking shoes are a necessity. It is advisable to walk in long trousers to protect your legs from grass and thorn scratches.

Before departure, your guide will issue you with back or hip packs to carry, containing water and juices. The assistant trail guide carries a first aid kit as well as snacks for a refreshment break on the walk.

Afternoon and evening activities usually comprise a combination of a short walk and a drive. The afternoon activity is decided upon between the rangers and the guests.  This may include a short walk and after sundowners jumping onto a vehicle and completing the activity with a short game drive before heading back for dinner! 

Our Sleepouts are weather dependent. The feasibility is affected not only by rain on the day, but also in the day or two prior to the sleepout as the decks are built in a very sensitive soil area.  The area cannot be serviced after heavy rains without a high level of erosion risk to the access road.

PLAINS CAMP IN THE KRUGER PARK TO JOHANNESBURG

DAY 5

The sun rises over our final day in the Park and we have one last chance to find the animals that have eluded us thus far. After breakfast, you are transferred back to the Airport for your flight to Johannesburg’s OR Tambo Airport. On arrival in Johannesburg, your tour with us ends.
