Wild Card and Kruger Park Trails will be hosting Wild Jump, a collaborative event combining skydiving and a Kruger Bush adventure.  See the Kruger National Park (KNP) from an eagle’s view and tick off one more item on your bucket list. The actual skydiving will take place in Malelane, at an airstrip outside the Kruger National Park.

This initiative strives to connect communities and life style groups through activities such as sky diving and Kruger Bush adventures, providing a magnificent opportunity ranging from an extreme adrenaline rush to a thrilling wildlife experience in KNP.  Every person who enters this event will receive their own personalized All Parks Cluster Wild Card. “Wild Card is your passport to the beautiful parks of South Africa,” says Daniel Cornelissen, CRM and Loyalty Manager: Wild Card. “The Wild Card program looks at conservation from a holistic approach therefore the distribution of conservation funding from the event will be distributed across all the parks in the Wild Card Partner program”. The Wild Jump aims at making nature conservation relevant to all stakeholders through focus interest groups, enabling a stronger message and connectedness to nature.

The event takes place from Thursday 15 March to Sunday 18 March 2012 and again from Monday 26 March to Thursday 29 March 2012 in the vicinity of Malelane. Why not enjoy an exhilarating night drive from Berg-en-dal, meet the challenge of an off the beaten track 4x4 bush-drive near Pretoriuskop or venture out into the bush on foot with a trained guide at Skukuza. Derek Poole, Marketing: Kruger Park Trails says, “We offer a guided environment where you can experience an extreme adventure whilst still appreciating and learning about the environment. Wild Jump is about creating awareness through adventure.”

Members of the public as well as corporates interested in partnering/ sponsoring the event can contact Daniel Cornelissen. For more information or to register contact Derek Poole or email
