Kruger Encompassed

A visit to a G Adventures-supported school gets you right into the thick of it, balanced with a multitude of wildlife photo opportunities at a Private Nature Reserve and in Kruger National Park. Of course, our open vehicle safari drives give you even more chances to spot elephants, lions and rhinos, up close and in person. Top it off with a farewell Afrikaans Braai (BBQ) and you wont want the trip to end.
