The Kruger National Park is South Africa’s largest game reserve and home to an incredible variety of wildlife, including the Big Five. This classic 3-day tour offers just enough time to take in the highlights, including the Orpen-Satara region, the Blyde River Canyon and the Three Rondawels. Enjoy sunrise and sunset game drives, a traditional Bush Braai at the Marula Tree Boma, and accommodation in a safari lodge.
More

* A traveler said: "Overall I give this safari package a 5 star rating. I was beyond what I could have ever imagined. Viva Safaris goes out of their way to give you the ultimate safari experience through sunrise, sunset and all day drives through the game parks. The personnel at the loge were exceptional, the food was great. The only negative item was that I was given the impression that on the day of arrival there would be time to relax, maybe take a dip in the pool before heading out on the sunset drive. The drive from Johannesburg took 8 hours including stops so we didn't arrive until 5:00 pm and the sunset drive was departing at 5:30 so there was barely enough time to put your bags in the room before activities begin. I would definitely do this safari again, although next time I would book either the 4 or 5 day instead of the 3 day."

Skateboarding and big cities around the world can't be separated from each other - we love how the city's skaters use the urban space in Johannesburg on a daily basis! Johannesburg sometimes has a negative and controversial reputation as a city and so does skateboarding - this tour is about challenging these ideas! By looking at the inner city through the eyes of a skater and life-long resident of Johannesburg, we challenge these stereotypes and look at how we can build a more skateboard and people friendly city in Johannesburg! If you've ever wanted to learn how to skate or are interested in learning more about the city of Johannesburg - or are just looking for something different to do - then this tour is for you! We love skateboarding and we love our city, we want to share both of them with all of you and the world!
