An Exclusively Private Kruger Luxury Safari

You will experience a completely private safari at your very own game lodge with all the comforts of home including your own chef and guide… On average only about 40 people a year get to experience this with Moriti, making this a very unique Kruger luxury safari! Our days are spent getting up early and enjoying a morning game drive in an open-sided game vehicle looking for all these amazing creatures and birds including interesting info on trees and plants. Walks are awesome to experience, especially in such primitive surroundings

What Can You Expect on this Safari

What makes us so special and unique is the exclusivity we have on over 19 000 acres of pristine, Big 5 wilderness. This beautiful part of Kruger located on the central western border is part of the 5 million acre Greater Kruger Park. The animals roam free on these lands and you get to experience one of Earth’s last remaining wilderness areas which is home to 147 species of big game including lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino and 517 species of birds! The length of the safari is completely up to you… Your only guideline is it has to be more than 3 nights, the least amount of time in our opinion you need to spend out here. From there, you decide on how long you want to spend on your Kruger luxury safari!

FAQ's

How Much Will This Cost?

Moriti is a very unique, specialised safari business… Due to the fact that we tailor-make all our itineraries specifically from guest to guest, a fair idea of cost online is not possible. We need to know exactly what you want so we can quote you accordingly because a set itinerary may not work for you. The relationships that we have with our destinations is very special to us and will always stay a secret to only but a few (psssst, that’s your cue!)

Requesting a quote from Moriti’s site will always result in a better rate for you because all of our Kruger luxury safari packages are tailor-made with your needs in mind

Payment and Currency?

We accept all major credit cards and can organise EFT payments as well

It’s not required to bring thousands of dollars in cash into Africa. Facilities in Africa have improved dramatically in recent years, and it’s now possible to pay by Visa and Mastercard at most locations. Currency exchanges and ATMs are available at most airports

Visa Info?

There are many websites that have information about visas to the African countries we work out of. The rules and regulations change constantly and as such, please contact your embassy directly to get the correct information at the time of your booking… This will make sure you get the correct info from a reputable source

Best Time For Me to Go?

Summer

This is from December-March and the average daytime temperature peaks at around 34°C or 93°F. The area is very hot, often with amazing thunder showers! From mid-morning to mid-afternoon the animals often find cool spots making them difficult to spot. On the plus side, many antelope species have babies with them

Autumn

This is from March-June and the average daytime temperature peaks at around 29°C or 84°F. Rainfall is at its highest, vegetation is at its thickest and it is still hot, although cooler in the evenings. Antelope species are now rutting (mating rituals) for the breeding season which is fascinating to watch

Winter

This is June-September and the average daytime temperature peaks at around 25°C or 77°F. Great game viewing can be had all over southern Africa! Days are mild and pleasant and the evenings are chilly. The vegetation is less thick and the game viewing is at its best around the permanent water sources

Spring

This is September-December and the average daytime temperature peaks at around 29°C or 84°F. By far the best time to do a Kruger luxury safari. Many migrant birds return and the game congregate around the sweet grasses and permanent water

Travel?

You can choose to drive to and from the airport with your guide which is included in the rate or you can choose to fly to either Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport in Nelspruit, starting point for all the tours except the private safari where you can fly to Hoedspruit Airport. All tours, you can choose to fly to Johannesburg or Cape Town via Hoedspruit Airport at the end

This is perfect if you are not keen on the 4-7 hour drive from Johannesburg to the various starting points… Although, some have said their guides sparkling conversation skills and music choices are worth it (citation needed)

What to Pack?

  • Hats, sunblock, insect repellent and sunglasses
  • Swimming costume as the lodges have pools
  • Something warm for the game drives during the winter months
  • Comfortable shoes
  • Camera and binoculars
  • Any electrical charges you may need. We run on 220 volts
  • Any medication you need

Health & Safety?

Vaccinations

In Africa, things change constantly. As such, so do rules and regulations. Make sure you ask your doctor about vaccinations before coming to Africa and make sure you specify which countries you will be visiting

Malaria

We have written a comprehensive blog post about malaria to keep you in the know. Please click Malaria Info for more info

Snakes

There are many snake species found in Africa, only 10 of which are regarded as deadly. You may be lucky enough to see them living their daily lives out in the bush… Please be aware though that these creatures are very scared of humans and if left alone, pose very little threat to you. If ever one gets too close for comfort, never lash out, that is what we are here for

Ticks

Ticks are often seen in the summer months hanging off grass stems looking for a tasty animal to latch onto. We do encounter them on walks occasionally and suggest you bring insect repellent and wear long pants and boots on our walks

Tipping Info?

Tipping is a general practice in South Africa. A large number people in the tourism industry that serve you get a salary, but are encouraged to deliver a better service to increase their income from tipping

Here is some information on tipping in South Africa

  • In restaurants, 10% to 15% is the accepted tipping standard on the bill amount
  • Petrol attendants at gas stations – from R5 up
  • Porters at airports – between R5 and R10 per luggage
  • Hotel porters – between R10 to R20 per porter service
  • Rangers and trackers – between R200 to R300 or more per day for both
  • Site guides (e.g. a guide at an activity) – R100 per person
  • Guides – anything between R200 to R300 per day, but R300 is the norm

Please be aware that this is a guideline and you should never feel obliged to tip anyone… It is your discretion and thoughts on the service you have received that should govern your tips

Connectivity?

Most of the lodges that we stay at have got WiFi access, some may be slower than others (hey, it is the bush now)

If you would like to use a mobile phone while on safari and do not want to pay more than the actual safari itself on international roaming then we would suggest using a local sim card… They are very cheap and airtime and data is equally inexpensive. Your guide can take you to a local shop to buy one, but bear in mind:

  • Make sure you know the size of the sim card your phone uses
  • Make sure you have unlocked your phone as some phones do not allow other sim cards to be loaded

Food and Drink?

Food and drink play a huge role in any Kruger luxury safari. On an African safari, they often find the lasting blend between old-world tradition and modern culinary influence. The sense of wilderness isn’t interrupted as you dine beneath the stars, a fire crackling and nocturnal animals calling and moving around. Menus are unique, blending local ingredients – sometimes those you won’t find served anywhere else in the world – with an international focus, perfectly delivered. Each lodge will also have a well stocked bar or we will purchase our own drinks, so in short, you will be well looked after

Hygiene?

Sometimes it’s hard to picture. You’re heading deep into the bush, a hundred miles from a tarred road or town. There’s going to be no running water. You’re going to be far from a borehole and just can’t imagine how you have a wash. And a shower? In such remote wilderness? Rest assured that each lodge has clean water and varied amenities depending on the accommodation, but all will have a hot shower / bath and a clean, flushing toilet
