Day 1, Night 1

Johannesburg into the Drakensberg

Meet and greet at place of residence in Johannesburg or at the International airport by Alan Tours. We board the tour vehicle and depart for the Mpumalanga (“The place where the sun rises”) Panorama Route taking in the scenery which becomes more picturesque as we approach the escarpment that finally descends towards the low laying country known as the Lowveld.

We check into our  accommodation in the foothills of the Drakensberg and enter what is known as the Panorama Route. 

Freshen up and meet in the spacious dinning area for a delicious diner before making our way to your comfortable chalet and a peaceful night’s rest.

Overnight guesthouse, lunch, dinner, bed and breakfast

Day 2, Night 2

Panorama Route to the Kruger National Park 

Meet for a hearty breakfast before checking out and set off to descend to the warm lowlands below the escarpment. We travel through orchards of tropical fruit before driving through increasing numbers of privately owned nature and game reserves as we make our way to the entrance gate of the mighty Kruger National Park, the oldest and largest park in South Africa.

As we enter the park, we stop to check in and take a comfort break, before immediately starting our game viewing experience. We travel through the park towards our overnight accommodation at one of the southern camps, an area known for its abundance of wildlife and excellent Lion sightings. On arrival at our overnight accommodation, we check in before boarding the tour vehicle for the late afternoon game drive searching for the many animals, reptiles and birds in this magnificent National Park. The early evening is one of the best times to view the creatures of the park, when they start becoming more active in their never ending search for food and water.

We return to our rest camp for the evening meal at the camp restaurant. This is a great time to relax on your porch and enjoy the peace and quiet of the evening while listening to the sounds of the African night, the nocturnal creatures: the Fruit bats with their metallic clicking as they fly silently between the fruiting trees; the Black backed Jackal calling in defense of its territory; the low hoot of the Eagle owl or the chirpy call of the smaller Scopes Owl sitting in the trees above. The far off call of the Spotted Hyena or if you’re in luck, the deep bass of a pride of lions roaring in the dark will keep you entertained, until eyes heavy with sleep, you fall into a deep satisfying sleep.

Optional extra: Night game drive in the park’s vehicle.

Day 3,Night 3

Kruger National Park

We wake early for a fresh cup of coffee and a “rusk”, a traditional oven baked bread roll as we get an early start driving into the savannas, searching for the many sightings, with some of the animals coming to the end of their nocturnal wanderings, while others awakening to the new day, feeding and interacting with the world around them.

We continuously stop to view sightings such as Elephant, Lion, Buffalo and Hippo, Giraffe, Zebra and many others including a wide variety of birds, reptiles and insects that will keep you fascinated for hours, in the stunning scenery in which they live.

At midmorning we have the choice of returning to our rest camp or continuing with the day’s game drive after a hearty breakfast at another camp.

If we continue with our game drive, we enjoy a light lunch on the road before returning to our rest camp to freshen up while Alan Tours prepares a traditional braai (barbecue) on the open wood fire under evening star-lit skies in this African wonderland. We finally make our way to bed, lulled to sleep by the sounds of the wild.

We keep to our early morning schedule after waking to a fresh cup of coffee and a rusk before going out at first light to find what wildlife can be found.

Once again returning to our rest camp or continuing through the day stopping at a picnic spot or another camp for refreshments and a comfort break.

We return to our rest camp in the early evening to freshen up before taking our evening meal in the camp restaurant before a good night’s rest.
