We stop in one of the small towns en-route for breakfast (included) and visit attractions such as the Blyde River Canyon, Three Rondavels, Lisbon Waterfalls and God’s Window. We return to Skukuza at around 11h00. This excursion is available free of charge, replaces one of the morning drives and will be co-ordinated by our staff while you are on safari with us.

Classic Kruger National Park Safari Camp Reviews

“Exceptional experience!”
14 August 2013
I highly recommend using Outlook as a great way of experiencing Kruger. You maximize your experience as you do not have to be concerned with details of eating and rooming let alone getting around the area to view animals. I stayed in a bungalow which was basic but very adequate. I found all Outlook staff to be excellent, excelling in everything including food and guides. The guides were extremely knowledgeable, eager to share information about the various animals we saw. Shared information added to the experience in a way I could have not appreciated if I were alone, trying to find my way around. The food was outstanding, my vegetarian diet not a problem for the chef. The drivers are prompt, efficient and patient. The passion the Outlook staff has for their work is very evident, making the overall experience exceptional. I wound not hesitate to use them again.

“Absolutely brilliant”
28 June 2013
We spent 3 nights in Skukuza Rest Camp in the Kruger National Park. Outlook arranged everything. It all worked like clockwork, from collecting us from our Jo'burg hotel to the amazing panoramic tour on the way back. Their chef prepared some excellent meals and we enjoyed the company of our fellow travellers. Our guide (Debbie) was exceptional. Not only was she very knowledgeable but she was very friendly and helpful too. We were glad that we didn't try to tour the park on our own. We would have missed so much.
