THE WILD FLIES SAFARI EXPERIENCE:

As the sun sets, you are surrounded by giraffe & warthogs, whilst cooking your meal on open fire in the African Bush Veld. lf you know us and all our experiences, they are always real. It’s never changed, never will. We are based in Marloth Park, a secure Wildlife Estate that is abundant with game. Laying on the banks of the Crocodile river overlooking, the iconic Kruger National Park is world renowned for its Big Five Safari.

The Kruger National Park entrance is a short 15 min drive to Crocodile Bridge gate where we are situated. The Lower Sabie region is known as the best game-viewing area in Kruger.

We believe in an exclusive experience that actually gives you the chance to not just visit the main spots. Instead, the guide waits, understanding the movements & nature of the wild; knowing when something will happen.

Yes, we will visit the main camp to have a rest and breakfast. If there is a sighting reported then be prepared to leave, as our guide is tuned-in the whole time. We asked Jan, one of the guides, why WE are the best. He said “Be still, wait”. Then 5 min later a herd of 100 plus Buffaloes charge a Lion pride and there is “stand off” between these two mighty beasts.

Something about our safari companies that we partnered with:

As qualified Trails/ Field guides, the guides spent countless seasons exploring Kruger on Walking Trails and Game Drives.

Encountering amazing wildlife, interpreting their tracks, signs and learning their behaviour.

BEST WAY TO GET TO THE KRUGER NATIONAL PARK:

We do recommend rather to take a flight from Johannesburg to Nelspruit, which is the gate way to Kruger National Park, then its just 1hour driving to your accommodation. This will reduce the transfer time considerably.  Being fresh for for your 1st safari. Flight costs between Johannesburg and Nelspruit range from R 3000 – R 4000 return pp. (USD 200 – USD 260 pp return.) It’s a 50-minute flight. Its not the cheapest, but from our experience absolutely worth it. You will literally save about 2 days travelling by doing this. Since you are on holidays, time less travelled does matter.

Second option is to drive up with you own rent-a-car, make a stop en-route and stay over, so that you can be fresh for your 1stgame drive.

Ultimately your choice. Let us know and we will make your African safari a reality.
