Photo Safari Client

The Deluxe Kruger/Timbavati Photo Safari is an 8 day excursion that starts and ends at Johannesburg’s OR Tambo Airport. From the airport we take you directly to Kruger Park, where each couple will stay 3 nights in air conditioned en-suite chalets. The next three nights will be at Umlani Bush Camp in the Timbavati Game Reserve where each couple has their own Rondoval with bed, and en-suite toilet and shower. On the last night you will stay at one of the area’s finest 4 or 5 star accommodations such as the Chestnut Lodge on the Panorama route.

All breakfasts and dinners are included, all transfer fees, tips, gratuities, tariffs, taxes and other costs are included. Your only additional costs during the Safari will be for 4 lunches, any alcoholic drinks and souvenirs. You will be accompanied by both safari guide Chris Kruger and photo guide Mark Bretschneider. This is a sample tour. Schedules are approximate and outings will lengthen or shorten to accommodate optimum viewing and photography of wildlife on the move in their natural habitat.
