South Africa Kruger Photo Safari

Overview

South Africa Kruger Photo Safari

Are you looking for a perfect add-on for your hunting safari or a stand alone luxury South Africa Kruger photo safari?  The famed Kruger Park is bordered on the Western side by a number of private reserves.  A few years ago, the fences between the Kruger Park and these private reserves was removed allowing game to move freely between the National Park and the private reserves.  The major differences between viewing animals in the Kruger Park and on the private reserves is that on the private reserves, you will be viewing the animals from professionally guided open safari vehicles that are allowed to take their vehicles off road.  On the private reserves, you will not see regular cars while out on safari!

A trip to the Kruger private reserves is well worth adding a few days to your trip to South Africa or the southern part of Africa.  This area is easily accessible from Johannesburg by plane.  We will arrange a light aircraft flight directly to your safari lodge.

The luxury lodges that our clients enjoy offer arguably the finest game viewing in Southern Africa as they maintain exclusive rights to thousands of acres of prime photo safari property.South Africa Kruger Photo Safari

TRAVEL INSURANCE:  REQUIRED!  

Links to the companies we recommend:

Travelex Insurance       Ripcord Insurance

While we do everything in our power to protect our clients from travel problems, we cannot prevent illness, natural disasters, wars, deaths, lodge closings and more; we live in uncertain times!  The only way to protect yourself and your investment is through travel insurance. Travel insurance can provide medical coverage, cancellation due to natural disaster, illness, death in the family, lodge closings and other unknowns; in this day and time, anything is possible.  Lodges count on you to protect your investment as they cannot refund your payments due to the nature of the product they offer.

Finally, travel insurance is time-sensitive and must be purchased within a certain number of days of your deposit to cover preexisting conditions, lodge closings and other various issues.  It is still available later but the benefits may be more limited.

Both companies offer evacuation insurance in addition to their travel insurance but Ripcord has more thorough coverage in this area.

The Ripcord membership and travel Insurance provides the highest levels of medical, security, evacuation and rescue services in the industry combined with travel insurance:

  • Remote rescue services from point of injury or illness
  • Medical evacuations to the member’s home hospital of choice
  • The best evacuation and rescue triggers that include rescues for medical conditions that will result in permanent injury in addition to just requiring hospitalization
  • Security extraction services for geopolitical events and natural disasters
  • Involuntary detention resolution services for members who are held against their will
  • Consulting services from special operations veterans, paramedics, nurses, and physicians
  • Travel insurance

Testimonials

Corinna, you were right, this was a trip of a lifetime. We all had an incredible time. I couldn’t pick one place over another because each one was fabulous. Gisella was so fun and everything she had planned was so good, even the crazy weather added to our adventure…

We tracked down all of the big 5. We saw 4 Manyeleti male lions sleeping, Eyerfield lion pride, good rhino sighting, many elephants, herd of buffalo and 6 different leopards, including two leopard cubs. Good general game, zebras, kudu, many impala and also one male cheetah
Give us some time and we want you to plan us another adventure. New Zealand or maybe the Amazon??
