Please note:

In Dive The Big 5’s opinion, two nights / one full day on safari is not an ideal safari that we would recommend. Its way to short, but it gives you an idea of costs for the minimum time one could spend on a safari.
For an additional ZAR 2 615 per person, per night sharing, including dinner, bed, breakfast, you can spend an extra full day on safari in Kruger.

If you are a single traveller, for an additional ZAR 2 750 per single, per night, including, dinner, bed, breakfast, you can spend an extra full day on safari in Kruger.
We recommend a minimum of 3 full nights / 2 full days to do a Kruger Park safari justice.
