Ultimate Greater Kruger Hiking Safari

Regular Rate:
R 16,900 pps

This safari experience is for the adventurers and true nature lovers who are looking for a walking safari experience like no other. It is designed to offer 3 nights camping in the Balule Game Reserve, each night in a different location. 

Each day is spent walking through the 8000 hectare reserve in the Greater Kruger Park, and each night is spent at a new, fully set up mobile campsite in a scenic location. A maximum of 8 guests (sleeping in 4 tents) are taken on the Kruger walking adventure of a lifetime, with plenty of stops en route. A trained guide and tracker team will lead an informative, thrilling, and unforgettable walk in the wild.  

Balule Game Reserve forms part of Greater Kruger and shares borders with Kruger National park.
The Olifants River courses through the reserve, while prominent mountainous ridges and boulder koppies characterise the terrain, making it an incredibly diverse and interesting region to explore on foot.

Accomodation

Each of the 4 dome tents can sleep 2 people comfortably on individual mattresses, made up with bed linen, duvets, and pillows.

These foam mattresses roll up easily into canvas covers, and are easily transported and reassembled at the next campsite. Camping doesn’t come more comfortable than this!

Each tent has an attached bathroom, which consists of a bucket shower and chemical toilet. A specially designed canvas panel is erected adjacent to the dome tent, creating an enclosed, yet open-air, bathroom facility. Water for the bucket showers is heated on the fire and filled for each shower. 

The canvas exterior of the tent is lined with fly screen mesh, which allows the canvas flaps to be opened while keeping the insects out.

Comforts, such as bug spray and mosquito repellant, hand soap, and toilet paper are provided.
