Waterval Boven is known as a world class climbing destination and the Kruger Park.. well we think you've heard of it 😉 The big 5 (Elephant, Leopard, Buffalo, Rhino and Lion) feature heavily in the park and there is an abundance of bird and plant life to learn about.

Rock Climbing Safari Itinerary:
The tour departs Johannesburg (Pretoria) at 08:00 for Waterval Boven. We take a brief pit stop to grab some lunch and snacks for our climbing excursion. We'll settle into our chalet/guest house and head out for our afternoon climbing adventure in the beautiful valleys and cliffs of the area. No climbing experience required! Time to freshen up when we return before taking in a well deserved dinner in town. Lights out!
After a scrumptious breakfast and time permitting we'll pass by the old mining town of Kaapsehoop with some stunning views of the De Kaap valley below. We'll grab some lunch in Nelspruit before entering the Kruger Park to settle into our accommodation. An afternoon game drive is in order! We arrive back to camp to a sunset braai (barbecue) cooked by your guide. Take a load off and enjoy the camp fire as we take in the beauty of the park at night and get ready for the days to come.
We hit the ground running on day 3 at 05:30 with coffee and biscuits before departing for a sunrise game drive in an open top vehicle. Returning to camp we'll sit down for a hearty breakfast and some leisure time. The middle of the day can be quite hot so a chance to lounge by the pool is most welcome. We continue on in search of the BIG 5 by visiting alternative parts of the park. Our guides like to stay in the park as long as possible and look to catch a sunset before returning to camp for dinner.
We depart again early, this time for a guided bush walk, offering us a completely different view of the park. Hungry stomachs will be filled with breakfast at the restaurant afterwards. Once again we'll have some leisure time during the day to either spend by the pool or take in more game. Today we will have an early dinner as we have a fantastic night drive in an open top vehicle organised! Keep your eyes peeled, many of these animals are not visible during the day.
We enjoy our last breakfast before breaking camp and heading out. As a last prize, we take the panoramic route and visit the stunning Three Rondavels and Blyde River Canyon (one of the largest in the world). We'll also briefly explore the heritage town of Pilgrim's Rest before returning to Johannesburg. This town is a living museum to the gold rush days of the past. Arrival at Johannesburg. Tour ends.
