  • We did the Safari through Kruger Park, Phalaborwa entry, divided into two days, one with Game Drive (6 hours) and the second via selfdrive (full day). On the first day it was nice to understand how a Kruger Safari works, the Guide took us to the spots where we could see Elephants, Giraffes, Buffaloes, Hippos and others. On the second day and on our own, we ran approximately 350 km and were able to see several animals, including the Lion. Just a negative observation, we were very poorly attended at the reception of gate Phalaborwa, the attendants talked among them on the local dialects and did not give proper attention, making sure the completion of the entrance time in the Park, causing another Guide to take us on Game Drive. In the rest nature helped overcome this failure in care.

  • We booked the game drives at Sefapane Lodge our hotel near the entrance of the Kruger Park, these were well cared for. The guides took all the time to show us the most beautiful places and gave good explanations about the life and survival of the wild animals. Very worthwhile
