Crazy Dave provided the best info I’ve encountered in traveling and booking all our arrangements online on the other side of the world. We added the Kruger Elephant tour onto our hunting safari, as it offered both game drives in Kruger plus touring the surrounding really nice scenery in the Blyde Canyon area. We were picked up by our fantastic guide, Ciska, in a safari vehicle with vinyl sides at 5 am at our lodging in Nelspruit. We traveled the second week of June, so the morning rides were cold, but she had thick blankets for us to wrap up in. Once we entered Kruger ( first in line!) at the Malelane gate, we did a morning game drive. She stopped for bathroom and snack/lunch/coffee breaks. Ciska drove us to our cabins at Lower Sabie. She prepared our dinner using the cabin grill and kitchenette. We took a night game drive by the Kruger guide, Petros. We had another morning and evening game drive on day 2, and stayed in cabins in Skukuza. We saw soooo many different animals, and Ciska and Petros knew the names, habits, and general locations of all of them and were incredible at spotting them. Kruger animals do not see the people in safari vehicles as predators, and so just ignore them. Ciska knew all the other guides and every vehicle shared info on sightings. There were not huge crowds; we usually only encountered another vehicle every 10 min or so. We left on day 3 through the Phabeni gate, near Hazyview. We toured the many scenic sites in the Blyde Canyon area. In each, we found vendors selling more or less the same variety of African-produced necklaces, carvings, etc. We enjoyed pancakes at Harry’s in Hazyview. Driving through the rolling misty hills covered in huge eucalyptus and pine forests was beautiful. Be sure to bring limited luggage as there is limited space on the safari vehicle. In early June, plan on layers with stocking cap, sweatshirt, wind proof jacket, gloves in the mornings and short sleeves in the afternoon and light jacket for the evening game drive, as sunset is about 5:30 pm. We were driven back to our lodging. We hired Crazy Dave to be our driver on our final day to take us to Chimp Eden and then on to the Nelspruit airport. Highly recommend.
