5 Nights:
Off The Grid Kruger 

Escape it all on this immersive Big 5 safari as you spend five nights deep in the Timbavati Game Reserve. Start with two nights at Simbavati River Lodge, and enjoy four game drives looking for Africa’s iconic species, such as lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino, before heading to Simbavati Trails camp, an off the grid eco-camp located deep in the Timbavati Game Reserve.


At Simbavati Trails Camp you will focus on one of the most thrilling safari experiences of all -  walking safaris. Simbavati Trails Camp is where you can escape it all with a luxury-yet-back-to-basics ethos. Twice daily walking safaris will reconnect you back to nature and you can revel in the simplicity of a distraction-free world where the most pressing task is adding another log to the fire.
