Kruger Bush Braai
An unforgettable dining experience deep in the Kruger bush
- ANIMALS PREPARING FOR NIGHT
Your guide picks you up in an open safari vehicle at your Phalaborwa accommodation or at the Phalaborwa Gate at 16:00 and you set off for a sunset drive. Game viewing in the late afternoon can be very rewarding as this is the time of day when animals are at their most active. The predators begin to emerge for a night’s hunting, and their prey become ever more active and alert as the long African night approaches.
As the sun dips towards the horizon, we stop for sundowners…
- African sunset
Sundowners in the bush are an iconic African experience.
We provide the sundowner and snacks. Nature provides the sunset.
Darkness descends quickly in Africa, and after our sundowners, the safari continues into the night…
- thrilling experience
The African bush at night is a mysterious place where predators prowl and the darkness echoes with strange calls and stealthy rustlings. Aided by powerful spotlights, you have a good chance of seeing lions and leopards prowling under the cover of darkness. The night is also full of mysterious animals that you never see by the light of day… bush babies, genets, nightjars, and many others.
Our night safari leads us deep into the Park to our bush braai site…
- an unforgettable meal
A lantern-lit braai around a bristling campfire, surrounded by the African night and all its nocturnal sounds is an unforgettable dining experience. Delicious traditional food unique to a South African braai is grilled on open fires. A variety of meat and famed local boerewors (“farmer’s sausage”) is on offer, together with scrumptious vegetables and a variety of fresh salads. Dessert and coffee or tea complete the wonderful meal.
A cash bar facility and some excellent South African wines are also available.
- a slow drive to the gate
Night Drive Back
After the braai, you will enjoy another night drive as we make our way slowly back through the Park to the Phalaborwa Gate. You will be dropped at your accommodation around 22h00.
