Kruger & Scenic
Mpumlanga Fly Drive

The northern part of South Africa is the most developed and at the same time the most unspoilt. Johannesburg is the most “Afripolitan” city South Africa has to offer and is the economic powerhouse of the country. To the north you will find a dry savannah landscape stretching to Zimbabwe. Travel east and find the world’s 3rd largest canyon. Below this lies the famous Kruger Park. The private game reserves surrounding the Kruger offer South Africa’s finest game viewing experiences.
Kruger & Scenic Mpumalanga Fly Drive Itinerary

Day 1 Your first taste of Africa

Most flights leave the UK in the early evening and travel through the night to arrive into Johannesburg early the following morning.

Things to remember about planning your fly drive
1. Select the right size of vehicle for your party. Distances are a little further than you perhaps expect in South Africa.

2. Think about a good mix of accommodation and we strongly encourage use of some of the smaller guest house accommodation, which you will find is first class.

3. The information you will be provided with will give you detailed directions to your hotel/safari and we provide maps for your whole itinerary.

4. Please allow time for excursions along the route.
