Kruger Park Safari Drives

For most of our guests, the promise of a wild adventure in the iconic Kruger National Park is a must-do. To help make this experience as exceptional as it should be, we have collaborated with Foxy Crocodile Bush Retreat to offer you awesome OSV (open safari vehicle) safari options -... Please note that prices vary between local (South African) and international guests, as determined by the entry and conservation fees of Kruger National Park.

For an extra enjoyable safari, the Foxy Crocodile Team took feedback from guests to heart and created open safari vehicles (OSVs) that have awesome extras for a comfortable and memorable safari.
Our open safari vehicles have heated seats for cold/ winter early mornings, and fans to keep you cooler in the summer heat.
Our vehicles are configured for quality over quantity to ensure that each guest has a 'window seat' for a close-up encounter in the wild. In addition, each row has a set of binoculars, and camera stabiliser bags for the enthusiastic photographers on board.
Built-in cup holders keep your beverages/ flask with tea or coffee safe and accessible on your adventures, and we know how much you want to share your sightings with friends and family who couldn't join you, so our vehicles are WIFI enabled, and each seat has USB ports so that you can keep your batteries/ devices charged and ready for the perfect shot.
For when it gets chilly, we have snuggly blankets and protective ponchos too. BUT, none of these thoughtful extras will mean a thing without brilliant, experienced and knowledgeable guides, that are passionate about our world-renowned fauna and flora, so we pride ourselves on offering you the company of some of the best local guides.

All packages include a breakfast pack for each guest, and their entry/ conservation fees.

Lionspruit Safaris

Lionspruit is a reserve in Marloth Park. This 1500 ha territory is home to four of the iconic BIG 5. But, as every nature-lover knows, it's not just about the BIG 5 animals, and Lionspruit does not disappoint - it is a treasure trove of wildlife, beautiful trees, stunning birds and SO much more! We are so excited to offer our guests the following safari options to this aptly classified as 'irreplaceable' environment. Guests are collected and returned to their accommodation.

Sunset Drive -  R495-00 per person
Night Drive -    R395-00 per person (2 Hours)
Bush Braai -     R990-00 per person

Our bush braais are, for many people, the most intimate immersion in nature. Sightings on the evening drive often include some of the local Big 5 residents, but there is something incomparably magical about sitting down to a freshly prepared traditional feast, out in the wild, under a dazzling canopy of stars, with the symphony of the night drifting across the ancient bushveldt. This is what memories are made of. This is what legends are made of...
