All of the below guided activities are bookable through Komati River Chalets when making your accommodation reservation or while staying at the property. It is however not advisable to leave the booking of your activities to the last minute as they often become fully booked in advance, especially in busy periods like school holidays, Easter and Christmas etc. We strongly suggest that you book in advance to avoid disappointment. 

KRUGER NATIONAL PARK - GAME DRIVES

 

Its going to be wild.

From Komati River Chalets:

We offer guided, half or full day Kruger National Park open top vehicle or closed vehicle game drive directly from our property. Our guides are highly qualified, experienced, attentive and passionate about every aspect of safari. 

Komati River Chalets to Kruger National Park, Crocodile Bridge Gate - 12.0 kilometers.

 

From Crocodile Bridge Gate Rest Camp - Operated by Kruger National Park themselves:

- A Kruger National Park employed guide will interpret the natural bush as well as offer further insight into the ways of the

Kruger National Park. 

- Guests need to arrange their own transport from Komati River Chalets to Crocodile Bridge Gate Rest Camp where you will meet up with your Kruger National Park guide and then climb on board the open vehicle to begin your game drive. 

Morning Drives:
Morning drives leave a half hour before official gate opening times, which vary according to the time of year, which means you will be the only guests driving around at that time. The drives' duration is around 3 hours and you will be able to enjoy the tranquility of the Kruger National Park at Sunrise. You will be transported on one of the Kruger National Park open vehicles from your camp of residence or entrance gate. 

Sunset Drives:
These drives leave the camp before dusk and return after sunset lasting around three hours. Sunset is a time when night animals  and predators emerge and a drive during this period is the perfect opportunity to witness the beauty of the bush as it changes from day to night.

Night Drives:
Night drives depart at either 19:30 or 20:00 depending on the time of year and last for around two hours. Kruger's nocturnal creatures are the stars of this show and you will have great insight into their secretive activities. It is also a wonderful opportunity to view our star filled sky away from city lights.

There are numerous path ways through the beautiful age old indigenous tree forest sporting beautiful views of the Komati River and some of its animal and bird life. The river is the home to wild crocodile and hippos so care must be taken at all times when walking in the forest.

There are over 400 bird species on offer in the area, and due to the river frontage some of Africa's finest water birds and fowl are local residents.
