Embark on a Kruger Park Safari with an experienced guide and stay at Hippo Hollow Country Estate.
Surrounded by the Magic of the African Bush.Only ten minutes from the world famous Kruger National Park (Phabeni Gate), Hippo Hollow offers comfortable accommodation set within tranquil indigenous gardens just outside Hazyview, the activity gateway to the Kruger Lowveld.
Hippo Hollow is nestled amongst lush indigenous gardens on the outskirts of Hazyview, and is only a 10 minute drive from the world famous Kruger National Park, making it the ideal destination from which to access the reserves of the Lowveld and the sights of Mpumalanga.
We depart Johannesburg and make our way to Hippo Hollow Hotel in Hazyview where you will be staying for the next 3 nights. The Hotel is a mere 10 min drive from Phabeni or Numbi gate of the Kruger National Park. The Hotel is a lovely, safe & privately run hotel with amazing meals for you to look forward to.
We check-in and you have time to unpack and relax before we depart for an exhilarating safari drive. You return to the Hotel in the late afternoon.
Our safari starts very early, before sunrise, to the Kruger National Park in specially fitted open vehicles. We enter through the Kruger Gate into one of the best wildlife areas of the KNP; here you will spend the day on a safari with your ranger and we will visit various water holes, look out points & rivers.
We have our breakfast, which was pre-packed by the lodge, at a local rest camp and then we will continue our safari looking for the mighty Big 5, not missing out on over 100 mammal & 500 bird species – your ranger will ensure the very best experience. Your guide will stop at a local rest camp for lunch where there is a great menu, then we continue with our safari.
We return to the lodge late afternoon (around 4 pm) after a great day on safari. You can then relax and even jump into the swimming pool before we have dinner at the lodge.
Today you have a leisurely breakfast before taking a stroll over the swing bridge to Elephant Whispers Sanctuary. Witness their intelligence, compassionate nature and the sheer delight the elephant experience when interacting with their human counterparts. The Elephant Interaction offers you the opportunity to feel their constantly curious trunks, touch their rough skin, exchange trunk greetings and offer tasty treats, while learning about their behavior and history from the Elephant Handlers.
After the tour you make your way back to the hotel to check out. You will be collected from the reception area for your transfer back to Johannesburg.
