Detailed breakdown

Day 1: Flying to Timbavati Game Reserve | 4 Nights

Up arrow
Kruger National Park, Kruger Private Reserves, South Africa

Start your family holiday with a flight from Johannesburg to Hoedspruit Airport, gateway to the famous Kruger National Park. Transfer on arrival to the family-friendly Ngala Safari Lodge in the Timbavati Game Reserve, a private conservation area adjoining Kruger.

You have time to settle in and head out on a late afternoon game drive before returning to camp for supper. Finish off the day around the campfire and plan your next few days.

Days 2-4: Exploring the Timbavati

Up arrow

Spend the next three days exploring the ever-rewarding Timbavati Game Reserve on early morning, late afternoon and early evening game drives. There is a fantastic variety of animals and birds in the reserve and Big 5 sightings are commonplace.

You could take off after breakfast on an exciting bush walk with a ranger and tracker. These walks offer a different perspective of the environment and you will learn a great deal about topics like tracking and traditional uses of plants, while the bird watching is excellent.

Return to the lodge after your evening game drive for a delicious 3-course dinner. Later that night, relax in the lounge and watch nocturnal animals at the lodge's two waterholes.

Ngala is a perfect place for families - each child receives a fun activity pack on arrival and babysitting services are also available.
