Excursions / safaris. Can you book at rest camp ?

Hello

In September we are staying in Pretoriuskop and Crocodile Bridge.

We are generally self driving but we want to experience a couple of the typical open top vehicle safaris.

Can we book into these at the camps, are they offered everywhere?

Thanks :)

Yes, you can book excursions at the camp.

But also in advance at the SANP head office. Have a look at the website. Most camps offer the same standard activities. But it may vary depending on demand.

You can book at the camp but popular drives fill up quickly so better book in advance on sanparks website or at least 1-2 days prior while there.

The SANParks ranger led game drives are in big (20 person), canvas top vehicles. Book a sunset drive early in your stay - if you enjoy it, you can book more. Bush walks are fun as you can do that on your own. In order to do a “typical open top vehicle” safari you will have to book a night at a private lodge or use a private concessionaire in Kruger. I don’t know how to do the latter but I know they’re available.

Thanks. I am happy enough doing it in a group of 20 +

Thanks. I'll have a think about whether to pre book or risk it and do it as we arrive.

From my experience, did not have any problem booking the same day for the evening drives.
