Full day Safari Drive from Marloth Park

  • About 10 hours


With an early morning pick-up at 4:30 AM (summer months) or 5:00 AM (winter months), we will be exploring the area between Crocodile Bridge and Lower Sabie. In this area of the park, we have a higher chance of seeing the Big Five than any other area of the Kruger! You will undoubtedly encounter some exciting animals on this drive as the area is abundant with wildlife such as cheetah, lions, elephants, giraffe, hippo, crocodiles, zebras, impala and many more!

You will begin your full day safari tour at the Crocodile Bridge gate situated at the South Eastern corner of the Kruger National Park. Here you can be on the lookout for grazing Waterbuck on the riverbank before you enter the park. As the cats and the rest of the Big Five are known to get an early start, the morning is the best time to see wildlife in the Kruger Park.

As we drive away from the Crocodile River, the grasslands of the Park allow sights of lions, giraffe, spotted hyena and cheetah among others. Your experienced guide will ensure that you see as much wildlife as possible for the duration of your 8-10 hour game drive.


You will be picked up by your dedicated guide at 4:30 AM (summer months) or 5:00 AM (winter months). A morning game drive is sure to be a thrilling experience as the early morning is the best time to see the cats and the Big 5.

Entering from the South East entrance at Crocodile Bridge, you will be greeted by the likes of crocodiles and hippos peeping their eyes at you from the river.

At the gate the guide will do a short briefing on safety.

The first 3-4 hours you will be driving towards your first stop. The first stop will be at one of the picnic sites or rest camps in Kruger National Park for a short break.

After your stop you will driving around exploring more of Kruger until your lunch break at one of the picnic sites or rest camps in Kruger National Park.

Then you will be slowly making your way back to the gate and be drop off at your collection point.

What an amazing place this is. My Husband and I were blown away. Beautiful house with 4 stunning rooms surrounded by African bush and animals all around. Looking for some tranquility this is the place to be.

We were taken on an amazing game drive into the Kruger National Park and were amazed by the knowledge and experience of our Field Guides. Spent the whole day in the park where Belinda and Tiaan made sure we got to see Lions. We learned so much.

Thank you Bush & Gables for a weekend never to be forgotten. You'll be seeing us soon again. 😉

Very relaxed place. Enjoy the nature
