WELCOME TO ELEPHANT HERD TOURS AND SAFARIS
Dreaming of Africa and your Kruger National Park Safari? Lying in the heart of the Lowveld is a wildlife sanctuary like no other, its atmosphere so unique that it allows those who enter its vastness to immerse themselves in the unpredictability and endless wilderness that is the true quality of Africa. The largest game reserve in South Africa, the Kruger National Park is larger than Israel. Nearly 2 million hectares of land that stretches for 352 kilometres (20 000 square kilometres) from north to south along the Mozambique border, is given over to an almost indescribable wildlife experience. Certainly it ranks with the best in Africa and is the flagship of the country’s national parks – rated as the ultimate safari experience.
Kruger National Park
A safari in the world famous Kruger National Park features on top of many people’s bucket list of things to do.
Game viewing from open safari vehicles in the Kruger National Park has to be one of the ultimate safari experiences in Africa, and being able to do this in a day is ideal for those who have limited time available to spend on safari. A day trip is an ideal way to experience the park and all it has to offer.
Sabi Sand Game Reserve
The Sabi Sand Reserve is the birthplace of sustainable wildlife tourism in Southern Africa. It is largely owned and operated by 3rd and 4th generation families who share a common vision with their ancestors.
Focus and foresight is on conservation. The Sabi Sand Reserve is the oldest of all the private reserves in South Africa. It was formed in 1934, and became a formal association in 1948 and is part of the largest conservation area in Southern Africa.

Hazyview is a small farming town in Mpumalanga, South Africa and is renowned for its banana industry. Close to Kruger National Park, the town’s name is derived from the shimmering haze that occurs during the heat of summer. Most of Mpumalanga’s private game reserves are found just east of Hazyview.
