It’s time for the big finale as you board your onward flight to Sabi Sands, part of the greater Kruger National Park. Head into the bush on a guided game drive and see what you and your tracker can find in one of the most diverse, wildlife-rich areas in Africa. Sabi Sands is home to the fabled Big Five – leopard, lion, rhino, buffalo and elephant, so-called because they were the most difficult creatures to hunt on foot. Be sure to experience both a morning and an afternoon safari, as the animals exhibit different behaviours at different times of day. When not on safari, gaze from your viewing deck and see if you can spot grazing zebra, giraffe or kudu.
