BushBreaks in South Africa Kruger National Park
South Africa’s iconic Kruger National Park is a must-visit for nature enthusiasts seeking unforgettable bushbreaks. Spanning an impressive 2 million hectares, this historic conservation area is home to the Big Five (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant, and buffalo) and numerous other species. Embark on game drives, guided walks, or thrilling night safaris to witness captivating wildlife in its natural habitat. Stay in a variety of accommodations from luxury lodges to comfortable campsites, ensuring a memorable stay.
Voyage2Africa introduces our safari enthusiasts to the Greater Kruger National Park, a union between Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, Balule Nature Reserve, Umbabat Private Nature Reserve and Thornybush Nature Reserve. Come and explore this vast, fence-free 184,000 hectares of land dedicated to wildlife. We guarantee unforgettable nature trail bush breaks in Kruger, the best way to become one with nature. The Olifants Trail is a good starting point at Letaba Camp and crosses both the Letaba and Olifants Rivers, habitats for an array of wildlife, including large predators, elephant and buffalo – and the regal African fish eagle.
BushBreaks in Zimbabwe Hwange National Park and Mana Pools
Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park and Mana Pools National Park are two gems that promise awe-inspiring bushbreaks. Hwange boasts an abundance of wildlife, including vast elephant herds, lions, cheetahs, and an array of bird species. Explore the park on game drives, walking safaris, or even horseback rides for a unique perspective.
Hwange (formerly Wankie Game Reserve) is the largest natural reserve in Zimbabwe, stretching a vast 14,600 square km, easily accessible in the northwest of the country, just off the main road between Bulawayo and Victoria Falls. Set off on exhilarating bushbreaks into this amazing park close to the edge of the Kalahari desert, a region with little water and very sparse vegetation, dominated by gorgeous Zambezi Teak trees and hosting over 100 mammal and 400 bird species.
Mana Pools, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offers a remarkable combination of water and land experiences. Bushbreaks in this watery ecosystem involve canoeing along the Zambezi River, where you may encounter hippos and crocodiles, or enjoy guided wilderness walks to spot elephants drinking at the water’s edge.
Discover 2,500 square kilometres of river frontage, islands, sandbanks and pools, flanked by forests of mahogany, wild figs, ebonies and baobabs – one of the least developed national parks in Southern Africa. Mana Pools only features 5 varied safari lodges in the park, all carefully built on the riverbanks. Two more special rustic lodges are situated upstream from the main rest camps and the large campsite along the river is popular with nature-loving visitors. This region is 100 km from any supplies so arrive fully kitted out if camping on the ultimate bushbreaks in Africa.
