Stop At: Kruger National Park, Kruger National Park

Our Sunrise Half Day Kruger Safari is perfect if you prefer to only spend a morning in the Park but still want to maximize on game sightings.Our Sunrise Safari departs early for you’re nearest gate of entry. We start from 05h15 in the summer months (Oct – Mar) and from 05h45 during the winter months (Apr – Sept). The early mornings offer a great opportunity to look for nocturnal species that are still active before the sun gets to high and the day warms up. This is a great time to look for Lion, Leopard, WildDog and Hyena. At around 08h00am we will take our first comfort break . After our stop we will continue looking for larger more common species such as Elephant, Giraffe, Zebra and Buffalo. Around 09h30 we will stop at one of the Camps should you still need breakfast. Our Safaris cover a wide variety of interests and we prefer not to rush around just searching for the Big 5. The Kruger is a large space with exceptional Bio-diversity, wonderful heritage and abundant wildlife.
