Mobile Safari: Kruger National Park

South Africa


Mobile Safari: Kruger National Park

The concept of a Mobile Safari is possibly as old as the filming of Hatari, which was perfect for getting close to wildlife and nature. Today, mobile camps are setup under canvas in pre-designated areas along the great wildebeest migration route. During the tour, travellers have the opportunity to move from one private campsite to the next, ensuring exclusive wildlife sightings in the heart of untamed landscapes. The accommodation has en-suite bathrooms, hot showers, morning tea brought by personal attendant and superb camp cuisine. 

This South Africa Mobile (Tented Camp) Safari starts in Cape Town, considered the most beautiful city in the world. Explore its charming harbour and awe-inspiring Table Mountain. This flat-topped peak that presides over the city can be done by foot or by the far less taxing cableway, which offers revolving views on your ride to the top.  Walk down the oak-shaded streets, lined with cafes, boutiques and art galleries in Stellenbosch. Then stay in a Ngala Tented Camp in the world-renowned Kruger National Park.

Day 02 – Hike
Cape Town Half-day Table Mountain hike. This famous landmark is one of Cape Town’s wonders and the view from the top of the mountain is breathtaking. Thousands of visitors ascend this world-famous landmark by conventional means - the cable car! But the real experience of the Cape must be earned, by reaching this destination on foot. You will be guided on a memorable walk along the mountain, allowing you to reach the summit by a series of easy stages.

Start at Constantia Nek, proceed through a series of valleys and hills, before reaching the summit, and thereafter descend along the same path. No special equipment is needed on this walk. A good pair of running shoes, hat and a warm jacket is recommended. Upon returning to Constantia Nek you will be met and transferred to the V&A Waterfront for your Robben Island Tour.

Take an excursion to the infamous Robben Island, now a World Heritage Site and provides stunning views across the bay with Table Mountain as its backdrop. Your tour to the island includes the ferry trip there and back, an island tour and a tour of the prison with a former political prisoner as your guide. The trip is three and ½ hours including the 1/2-hour ferry trip each way.

Day 06 – Transfer
Kruger National Park Transfer to Cape Town Airport for your flight to Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport. Depart Hazyview in an open safari vehicle to Skukuza for lunch (own account) and an introduction to the Park. Use this opportunity to shop, as there are no shops at any of the campsites we use. This area of the Park offers excellent game viewing - we can expect to see general game, possibly lion and elephant and maybe even an elusive leopard. Guides prefer to use seldom driven roads on their way to the overnight camp. The Kruger National Park has identified several `wilderness' campsites for the exclusive use of the tented safaris within the central and southern section of the Park. Each site, situated in an area of unspoiled natural beauty is rich in bird and animal life. You can expect two fascinating days of drives, game and bird watching.

As the afternoon cools down we make our way back into the bush for a short afternoon game drive. Dinner is served around the campfire and opportunities exist to view game by spotlight from the campsite.

Getting There Johannesburg with its O.R. Tambo International Airport is the air transport hub of Southern Africa and is linked to the rest of the world by major airlines. Other international airports are located in Cape Town and Durban, but few flights from Europe or America fly directly to either destination. There is a good network of internal flights.

Travelling around South Africa is mostly by car and a good range of car rental companies are available. The road system is amongst the best in Africa. However, travelling off the beaten track to the national parks is virtually impossible by public transport. This is mostly organised by local tour operators.

When to go The best time to visit Kruger and most wildlife parks in South Africa is from May to September. This is the dry season and animals congregate around waterholes and rivers. The climate of South Africa is generally mild throughout the country with warm, sunny days and cool nights. There's really not a bad time to visit, but winter is a good time (especially October) if you are going for a safari – grass is short, and the animals tend to gather around watering holes.

In winter, due to altitude, temperatures drop to the freezing point, and in places even lower. Snow is a possibility June-August in the mountain areas. It generally rains in the afternoon during the summer (November-February) everywhere in the country except in the Cape Province, where it rains during the winter.
