This Luxury Kruger National Park Safari was designed for a couple from Naples, Florida who were celebrating their 20th anniversary. It was their first time in Africa and they wanted to see the Big 5 in South Africa’s famous Kruger Park. We sent them to 2 of our favorite Kruger safari lodges that are a bit off the beaten path and located in private game reserves. They had amazing wildlife encounters and were able to relax at luxurious camps offering all the creature comforts of a true home away from home.
They started their trip at Kings Camp in the Timbavati Game Reserve. They went on game drives and walking safaris to see elephants, lions, leopards, giraffes, and more out in the wild, almost close enough to touch. They were even lucky enough to see one of the extremely rare white lions on the reserve!
They loved the safari lifestyle: exciting game drives in the morning, bush breakfasts where they saw elephants walking past as they sipped their morning coffee, outdoor boma dinners around the fire, and being able to retreat to their luxurious suite after each adventure-packed day.
Continuing their Luxury Kruger National Park Safari, they flew to the northern region of Kruger for 2 nights at The Outpost. This unique lodge has a sleek, modern design that blends seamlessly with its stunning natural surroundings. While still in Kruger, The Outpost is surrounded by different landscapes than what you’ll find in the more popular south end of the park. Here, they were able to see not only the Big 5, but also some of the smaller and more elusive animals that are rarely seen in other areas.
Between the 2 camps, the couple had a spectacular Kruger experience and a milestone anniversary to remember forever. They returned home with countless memories and photos to share.
