All Kruger Park guided safari tours
with Tydon safaris
are spent at the ideally located Skukuza Rest Camp which is lined with tall, aged trees along the river’s edge, which brings guests close to nature in the wilderness that is the Kruger National Park.
Well-equipped and established in the Kruger National Park, Skukuza has excellent facilities and a range of wildlife in the region, including the Big Five, indigenous plants, herds of grazing animals and exotic bird life. Popular for families, couples and small groups, Kruger Park guided safari tours are best suited for guests who want to experience a wildlife safari in true African style.
Early mornings and late afternoons will be spent on game drives in search of wildlife animals, and the time between game drives can be spent relaxing and enjoying the peaceful tranquillity of the African bush. Typical accommodation used on Kruger safaris will be in twin bed, en suite, air conditioned grass roof chalets.
All game drives are done in open safari viewing vehicles to give guests the best possible wildlife and scenery viewing opportunities. Safaris are conducted by professional guides who have excellent knowledge of the Game Reserve, with all its history, cultural heritage wildlife and fauna, and will share all his or her knowledge with you during your safari tour.
Each morning and late afternoon, guests enjoy Game Drives in open safari vehicles, in search of animals both large and small,affording unparalleled photographic opportunities of the Big Five and much more (including over 300 bird species, a treat for keen birders!).
Experienced and personable rangers are coupled with local trackers. Together they ensure a first class safari experience.
Guided walks with an armed ranger may also be arranged. Helpful hint: Do not head into the bush in the middle of the day during summer months! Walks are usually arranged in the more moderate hours of the early morning. Being on foot brings an altogether different view of the bush.
