EXCURSIONS

Sunset

During the weekend you get the chance to go on excursions. Depending on the number of volunteers at the camp during your stay, excursions during the week may or may not be possible.

Here are some of the excursions we offer:

Kruger day trip

Experience a safari tour through the world renowned Kruger National Park! Kruger Park, being one of Africa’s largest wildlife reserves, covers roughly 19,500 square kilometers of territory! Inside you can find almost every wild animal species of Southern Africa, from a little scrub hare all the way to the Big 5 (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo).

On this excursion, you will leave camp early in the morning to get to the park right when the gates open. The guide will drive you through the park, providing information, and allowing you to take a wealth of photographs as you view these wonderful animals first hand! You will stop for lunch at a restaurant inside one of the park’s many rest camps, before heading back out for more animal viewing in the afternoon. The guide will then return you to camp after the park gates close just in time for dinner!

Don’t miss out on an amazing safari experience and a day you certainly will never forget!

Tshukudu Bush Camp overnight stay

On this excursion you will experience the luxury of an African Safari Lodge in Big 5 territory.

Tshukudu Private Game Reserve is located just near Hoedspruit next to the Great Kruger Park. During your overnight stay, you will experience an evening game drive in an open game viewing vehicle guided by a professional ranger.

You will then return to the camp after dark where a lovely meal will be prepared for under the stars! You will then wake up early the following morning to get back out into the bush to track down Tshukudu’s infamous cheetahs. They are comfortable with humans, as their mother was hand raised, however they live completely free in the reserve. You will be able to get out of the vehicle and walk alongside these magnificent animals.

After the morning bush walk, you will return to camp to pack your things before heading to Hoedspruit for breakfast!

Kruger overnight trip

Spend a night under the stars in South Africa’s famous Kruger National Park. During this excursion you will have two full days of animal viewing whilst driving along in the Park, an overnight camping experience at one of the campgrounds and an evening barbeque/braai.

You will leave the camp early on the first day in order to arrive at the park for a full day of safari. You will then stop for lunch at one of the rest camps and then carry on in the afternoon before arriving at the designated campground. The guide will set up camp for you while you relax by the pool and, and then prepare the evening meal. The following morning, you will pack up camp and head out for your second day of safari. You will then exit the park before the gates close and return to camp just before dinner.

This is truly an amazing camping experience that it’s like no other!

Panorama Route and Graskop Big Swing

Do you have an extreme adventurous streak in you? If so, then this excursion is for you. The Panorama tour is a lovely scenic drive atop the Blyde River Canyon. The Canyon is the 3rd largest canyon in the world and the largest “green canyon” due to its sub tropical foliage. You will stop along the way at multiple viewpoints including Gods Window, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, and the Three Rondovals.

You will then finish in Graskop and will have the opportunity to do the Big Swing. This is a 60m harnessed freefall over a cliff followed by a swing across a beautiful gorge. It is quite a thrill. Don’t worry, this part of the tour is optional for those that prefer the comfort of keeping their feet on the ground.

After the swing you will return to camp, stopping at a few more view points along the way!
