Join us for a tailor made safari with Thula Seats Open Safari Vehicle operators, affectionately referred to as OSV’s by the guides. Experience exhilarating life changing moments in the world-renowned Kruger National Park. Qualified local field guides will accompany you on your safari, giving you their personal attention while sharing their knowledge about the great variety of wild animals, birds and the scenic beauty of the untamed African bush.

We offer Half Day Kruger Safaris, either in the morning or in the afternoon, but for the Kruger National Park and its wildlife to truly get under your skin, open your schedule or stay a day longer and take advantage of the Full Day Kruger Safari. Are you alone? No worries. As our safaris are shared, you will be spending the day with other people on the open safari vehicle forging new lifelong friendships.

The passionate guide will collect you with an open safari vehicle at your Lodge or Hotel before heading to the Kruger National Park gate and the life altering moments that lay beyond. There will be knee blankets, poncho’s and bottled water available for your comfort during the safari. During your Kruger Park Safari lunch is excluded, but for your convenience there will be a stop at one of the Kruger National Park Rest Camps.

This is also a time of reflection and gives you an opportunity to stretch your legs when you use the camp’s amenities. Visit the restaurant and if you have time, do not miss out on the memorabilia you will find in the Kruger Shop. The day will wind down as you are transferred back to your Lodge or Hotel after your unforgettable Kruger Park Safari.

Unfortunately children under 6 years old are not allowed to enter the Kruger National Park in an Open Safari Vehicle but Thula Seats can however arrange your safari in an air-conditioned closed vehicle to include the young ones.

The main areas and Kruger Park entrance gates we are currently focusing on is Phabeni gate and Paul Kruger gate near Hazyview. Further down at the Komatipoort and Marloth Park area the southern Crocodile Bridge entrance gate are used.
