It is easy to take a safari from Maputo, Mozambique’s capital city, to the famous South African Kruger National Park. This way, you get to see something of two countries – the destinations share a border. Tour groups only need to travel about 100 kilometres to the South African border post from Maputo, then another 20 kilometres to the Park. This takes about two hours.
Guides do the rest – assisting travellers through all border formalities and treating them to special extras along the way. But don’t forget that passport! For expert advice, contact us if you want to see some of Mozambique and some real wildlife. A Kruger Safari from Maputo is for you.
Some tours start early in the morning from Maputo and all tours are excellent value where guests are treated like gold. There will usually be drinks and snacks on the trip to the Park and time to stretch the legs along the way. A day trip to the Kruger features lunch at one of the camps in the south, in between wonderful game drives to see the Big Five if lucky.
Find elephant to buffalo, giraffe, impala, zebra and maybe lion and rhino. The rare African wild dog may also just run past that day! Some safaris into the Kruger National Park from Maputo last two days with one night in a safari camp, complete with a bush dinner. Many safaris take place in open safari trucks and game drives continue until the evening when guests book into their accommodation.
Dinner around the fire and a warm shower will see guests ready for the second day which starts very early so that this game drive can search for animals like leopard and lion. Somewhere along the way, a hearty breakfast will be enjoyed, again at a Kruger rest camp. Leaving the park is another game drive in itself and then the return to Maputo, another scenic journey through two countries.
What a wonderful way to see the thriving city of Maputo and some genuine wildlife!
