The Greater Kruger defies the imagination with a rustic expanse of savannah that covers the northeast of South Africa. The region is larger than most U. S. states and at times it seems it will feel as though there is no end to the evocative bushland and roaming herds. You will land at O. R. Tambo International and transfer into your private aircraft, a small plane that can easily land on Southern Africa's remote airstrips. Customized viewing windows will ensure that you can fully take in the elephant bulls and the marauding buffalo herds that grace the Greater Kruger.
Your private plane will offer expedited travel to each of your destinations, but the great highlight of traveling this way is the aerial safari. Every flight will allow you to see the land from an exclusive perspective, one that exquisitely portrays just how vast and untouched Africa can be. This afternoon you will fly to the north of the Kruger to cruise the length of the national park from north to south and admire the scorched colors that stretch out below. Your final destination is Mala Mala, a luxurious private game reserve that has an unfenced border with Kruger National Park. As you land, the animals that you saw from the air will be seen on your late-afternoon game drive to bring an intimacy that compliments the scale discovered from the air.
