Kruger Park & Sabi Sands

Itinerary Ideas

Kruger Park and Sabi Sands safari

Showpiece of South Africa’s extraordinary natural heritage, a Kruger and Sabi Sands safari is easily combined with other destinations around the country and beyond.

Ever-popular Cape Town and the neighbouring Cape Winelands and Whale Coast are easily included on the same itinerary as the Kruger and Sabi. A Garden Route holiday is also simple to add on: you can even self-drive this panoramic coastline at your own pace, return your car at Port Elizabeth and fly to Johannesburg. One of our most popular itineraries is to combine a Kruger and Sabi Sands safari with Cape Town and Victoria Falls – it’s a honeymoon favourite and delivers southern Africa’s three iconic destinations in one tour.

Browse our recommended itineraries below, each including a Kruger and Sabi Sands safari. If you’d like a more personalised tour, then simply contact us and we’ll tailor-make an itinerary for you based on your needs and budget.

WHAT TO DO

on a Kruger/ Sabi Sand Safari

1. Go on a Game Drive

Led by your professional guide & eagle-eyed tracker, morning & afternoon game drives are the highlights of a Sabi Sands safari. Off-road driving is permitted for extra close-up sightings.

2. Walk the Wild Side

A guided nature walk gives you the chance to see the smaller details & enjoy some excellent bird watching. For the truly adventurous, multi-day guided hikes are available in the Kruger Park.

3. Look for Leopards

Everybody wants to see one; go on a Sabi Sands safari & you’re more or less guaranteed. It’s Africa’s best destination for up-close sightings of leopards. Ask us about the best ‘leopard lodges’.

4. Explore the Night

A spot-lit night drive gives you the chance to spot Africa’s seldom-seen nocturnal animals such as bush babies, giant eagle-owls, porcupines & serval cats. You’ll be back in time for dinner.

5. Watch the Waterhole

With accommodation set overlooking water, the best game viewing is often enjoyed from an armchair on a shaded terrace. Sit back with a drink & watch the action unfold in front of you.

6. Bring the Kids

Dedicated staff, family safari programmes, kids menus & baby sitters – there’s no excuse for leaving the children at home! Ask us about the best family camps in Kruger & Sabi Sands

7. Be Treated like Royalty!

Many lodges have well-earned reputations for world-class cuisine & service, offering sophisticated spa treatments, private dining & beauty pampering – perfect for honeymooners & discerning safari travellers.

8. Get Involved

You’ll also have the chance to see another side to your Kruger safari. Learn about conservation programmes, visit local communities & contribute to development initiatives.

Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on!

Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.

Safari Online were extremely efficient and absolutely charming to work with.

Our 28-day itinerary took us to South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. A magnificent and unforgettable adventure. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently from the flights, transfers, rides, connections, etc. Absolutely wonderful! Can’t thank them enough!

Ann and Mario (Canada)
Professional, quick and top of the edge service!!!

From the very first contact we’re very happy about the respond time and quality of information from safari-online.com. Based on the received first tailor-made quote, which is a weblink with all the details about the flights, photos of the lodges etc. we knew that this is “our” partner for this trip. Our expectations were excelled!!!

Lukas (Germany)
It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.

Heather (USA)
Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Chris (USA)

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional. Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.
