TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

DAY 1

Half Day Safari

Within minutes of being picked up in your private open safari vehicle, you are on safari, in search of Africa’s magnificent wildlife! It is one of the most exciting experiences to view untamed Africa and its magnificent wild animals in their natural environment from an open safari vehicle! The Kruger is famous for its incredible density and variety of animals - and it’s definitely Big 5 territory, giving you the opportunity to experience fabulous sightings and encounters with Africa’s fabulous animals!

DAY 2

Kruger Morning Safari

We set out at sunrise with coffee in hand. Experiencing the start of a new day in the bush is very exciting. Wildlife is active in the early morning as the rising sun signals to the animals that it’s time for the predators to settle down after a night of hunting, and the rest of the park to wake up and set out for their day’s activities. Being part of the bushveld as its animals prepare for another day is an amazing experience and offers some fabulous sightings and experiences.

Afternoon Bush Walk

You haven’t experienced Africa until you’ve experienced it on foot. Being on foot allows you to be part of wild untamed Africa. The walk is led by two experienced and armed rangers who share with you their intimate knowledge of the bushveld and wildlife. It is incredibly thrilling. Although the walks are in Big 5 areas, the main aim of these trails is to have a wilderness experience. The focus of the walk is on you tuning in to your senses and the daily drama of life in the bush.

DAY 3

Kruger Morning Bush Walk

No two walk experiences in the bush are the same as your guides lead you through different parts of the bush, sharing their intimate and extensive knowledge of the bushveld with you. Walking through this fabulous bush - so rich in animals, beautiful birds and fascinating insects - allows you to connect with nature in a way that will give you a different perspective on yourself, and your life... and recharge you soul.

Afternoon Safari

After your bush walk you spend some time back at the camp, where you can eat, take a siesta, swim... or just chill under a tree! Then you set off on your afternoon safari. Your bush walk will have given you a new insight into the bush and the animals, making this an amazingly meaningful safari. You will be able to appreciate the bush and its extraordinary inhabitants in entirely new ways. In the late afternoon, we arrive at Letaba Ranch’s Mtomeni Tented Camp.

DAY 4

Letaba Ranch Morning Bush Walk

You begin your day with a private morning bush walk from your wilderness camp with your own private guide… just you, your guide and the magnificent wilderness. Being on foot immerses you in the bush. You feel part of the environment which allows you to focus on the patterns of nature, the intricacies of tracking, the signs of animal presence, the signalling sounds of birds and game, and the inter-dependent relationships of different animals. It is a life-changing experience!

Letaba Ranch Night Safari

Exploring the untamed African bush at night in your own private open safari vehicle and with your private guide is thrilling! Aided by a powerful spotlight you may have the chance to see mysterious animals that you never see by the light of day… bush babies, aardvarks, genets, nightjars, porcupines, and many others. For those used to living in light-polluted and noisy urban areas, the total darkness, the stunning Milky Way stars overhead and the incredible sounds of an African night is an experience you will never forget.

Evening Braai

Dinner is a stunning and unique South African eating experience - a braai (so much more than a barbeque!) There is little to beat sitting around a roaring fire in the African night while your food is being grilled over the coals... the magnificent stars above you, and the magical sounds of the African night echoing around you! Delicious food! Wonderful experience!

DAY 5

Letaba Ranch Morning Bush Walk

Once again you set out on a thrilling morning walk with your own private guide… just you, your guide, the untamed African wilderness and its wonderful animals and birds. Every moment spent exploring the solitude of the African bush on foot brings a new sight, a new sound, a new experience with animals and nature… it’s a truly magical experience... and a fabulous way to wind up your walking safari! 

Back to civilisation!

After your bush walk we set off on our drive back to Phalaborwa or the Kruger Park airport... leaving behind you this magnificent wilderness... but taking with you a lifetime’s memories of the exploring this spectacular part of the world and its wonderful animals both on foot and in your open safari vehicle!

Your safari involves many exciting hours viewing wildlife – and we want you to enjoy every second of it! As such, we carry tea, coffee and rusks, a cooler box of iced waters, a “library” of reference books, fleecy blankets for chilly mornings, and spare binoculars. And it is fully air-conditioned. . . with fresh bushveld air! 

Your guide during the walking safaris

Your guide

The quality of your tour experience depends largely on the quality of the guide. If a guide lacks knowledge, passion or personality, your tour will be less rewarding than they deserve. Your guide is amazing! He is truly gifted. He loves it all and shares it all! Being experienced, educated, passionate and people-oriented, he possesses the unique skill of bringing to life the totality of the tour in a way that is thrilling, life-changing, and tons of fun!
