5 Day Kruger and Sabi Sands Safari for Families

Our 5 Day Kruger and Sabi Sands Safari for Families combines the 2 amazing game view areas in South Africa called Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve and Kruger National Park.

Price from: R31 347 to R32 848 pp (ZAR)

Short and sweet, this 5 day Kruger and Sabi Sands Safari offers a wildlife experience in two of South Africa’s most sought after safari destinations. Starting in Johannesburg, your family will be transferred to Lukimbi Safari Lodge in the Kruger National Park for the start of your African safari. Here, you will enjoy 2 daily game drives departing in the early morning and late afternoon, down-time at the lodge swimming pool and family dinners under the African sky. Your safari continues in Sabi Sands Game Reserve, bordering the Kruger National Park. Famous for having the highest leopard density of any private game reserve in South Africa, a Sabi Sands safari is your best bet at spotting this elusive Big Five member in South Africa.

Lukimbi Safari Lodge welcomes children aged 2 years and up. Babysitting services are offered from 07h00 at R130 per hour. The lodge hosts exciting kids’ activities in the safari playroom such as movie nights, arts and crafts activities and casting tracks. Outdoor activities include bush walks, treasure hunts, interactive sessions with rangers, boma dinners and picnics. A special kids’ menu is available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The family rooms include playful safari beds and cots customized to the shape of Africa’s animals.

Note – A private safari vehicle must be booked for families with children under 8 years at a rate of R4,000 per day.  *Kids activities supervised from after breakfast until 13h00.

Lukimbi Safari Lodge adheres to the Kruger National Park’s standards of sustainability in terms of their hospitality and wildlife conservation practices.

Idube Game Lodge specializes in the conservation of its rhino population. The reserve is also extending its efforts to the community on the borders of the Sabi Sands, Mpumalanga, in uplifting and improving their conditions, as well as their understanding of the value of the reserve for the future.
