4 Days Kruger National Park Safari and Elephant Encounter

We offer a four-day safari to Hazyview area of the Kruger National Park and Elephant interaction.

The package includes transportation and all game drives are conducted in open 4X4 safari vehicles inside the Kruger National Park. The guests will have the opportunity to interact with elephants and learn more about these creatures.
