This 4-day Kruger Escape Safari offers a tranquil escape in the heart of the beautiful African bush. It is based on a 3-night stay at a classic Kruger Park Safari Camp in a private concession removed from the crowds. Enjoy excellent game viewing, including the Big Five - buffalo, lion, leopard, rhino, and elephant. Discover the peace and tranquillity of life in the bush.
Your day starts mid morning at Johannesburg Airport where you board your plane for the flight to Hoedspruit airport. Look out for your name as you are welcomed off your flight. It is a short drive to the unique Hoyo Hoyo Tsonga Lodge situated in the heart of the Kruger National Park. You can also transfer from Johannesburg to Hoyo Hoyo by road. This trip leaves Johannesburg at 8.00 am and arrives in the early afternoon at Hoyo Hoyo Tsonga Lodge where you will settle in to your beautiful surroundings.
This morning you can take part in a walking safari which offers you use of the unspoiled Bushveld. Learn more about this beautiful area, and its diverse and fascinating inhabitants. It is not only the wildlife that is interesting, but also their habitat.
Have a coffee or tea in the bush before satisfying your appetite at a breakfast feast back at the Camp. After breakfast your guide will pick you up at Rhino Post in an open safari vehicle and drive you to Plain’s Camp.
Built in true pioneer tradition Plain’s Camp reflects the ambience of a 19th Century naturalist’s rest. Offering four African explorer-style tents which are set in an Acacia Knobthorn thicket, the camp overlooks the spectacular Timbitene plain, abundant in game best viewed from the revitalizing plunge pool. An Africana book collection and treasures from another era weave the spell of days gone by.
Guests staying at Plains Camp can explore the 12 000 hectare luxury private wilderness area in the Kruger National Park. This is the only wilderness area in the Kruger Park to be given to a private operator. Sharing a common boundary with famous Mala Mala Game Reserve for 14km allows for sightings of an abundance of game. The area is only 20 minutes from Skukuza, the heart of the Kruger National Park.
This evening you will spend around the campfire. There is a spotlight on the wooden deck which you can use to check which animals are drinking at the waterhole at night on the plains stretching out in front of you across the flickering fire.
Feel the African soil under your feet and let your senses come alive as you set out on an early morning game walk to discover the mysteries of the bush. Let your professional guide teach you how to identify animals from their spoor and which plants have medicinal qualities. You will be amazed at what the Shangaan people use elephant dung for…
Satisfy the appetite you worked up during your game walk with a scrumptious brunch. The rest of the day is yours to relax, read a book, catch up on some sleep, take a dip in the pool or simply enjoy the natural sounds of Africa
Later another game walk will have you putting your newfound knowledge to the test in tracking spoor before you return for an evening of more delicious bush cuisine around a candle lit dinner table. Keep your eye on the waterhole for the chance of amazing wildlife interaction.
On the final day of your safari you can experience the thrill of an early morning game drive or walk for the last time. After brunch you will be transferred to the airstrip for your flight back to OR Tambo International, for your onward arrangements.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
