Hi All

Rite so here I start off, my girlfriend and I are heading up to Kruger for 2 weeks. We leave the 25th July (Friday). We staying at Lower Sabie for 3 nights, Skukuza 3 nights, Satara 4 nights and back to Skukuza for 3 nights.

I am planning on proposing to her while we in the park.
I was planning on doing a early morning game drive with a champagne breakfast with a ranger to take us out. Do they still perhaps do this?
Else I was planning on doing a guide walk through Kruger.

If anyone knows about the breakfast drive and a good ranger to take us I'd highly appreciate it.

I am looking so forward to this trip and I'm counting my days till we leave.

Cole

Thank you so much. I really appreciate it.
We both huge wildlife fanatics, so I'm sure it's going to work out great.

Is that through the rangers? I'm going to call the park tomorrow to find out info and what they could perhaps arrange for me.

Thanks for the info.

Bush braai one is taken by the Sanparks into the bush for about an hour and a half drive. Then you arrive at a "secret destination" in the bush where a delish braai is prepared .. plus drinkies ( I think you have to pay for those ... not sure
Then afterwards there is a further game drive and you are delivered at your door in the Camp .

Unfotunately Cole I think all Sanparks drives and activities need at least a minimum of 4 folk to make it viable But there is no harm in asking and telling them the reason . There has to be a cook the person who is on Guard duty with a beeeeg gun and possibly the folk who do the driving etc

Hi Cole,

Congrats in advance :D

I would suggest that you contact the camp and speak to the hospitality manager (or camp manager) and find out what is available and what they can do to accommodate your plan.

Good luck,
Janine
