Kruger Trip


Kruger National Park is located in north-eastern South Africa, and is home to many animal species, including the “Big Five” (lions, elephants, leopards, buffalo, and rhinos). Kruger is known for being one of the largest national parks on the planet, spanning almost 20,000 square kilometres! If you are interested in going on a safari, Kruger Park is the place for you!

For a fair price, Zanchieta offers Kruger trips which both start and end at our farm in Bloemfontein, South Africa.The trip lasts 5 days and 4 nights, with accommodation in Marloth Park, just across the Kruger border at crocodile river. Marloth Park (17.5 sq km) is home to many free-roaming animals including zebra, giraffes, ostridge, monkeys, kudu, bush babies, and more! There are opportunities in Marloth to walk among the animals, and even to feed them. During free time on the trip, there are also optional  excursions available in Marloth park, such as tiger fishing, 4×4 quad biking, and a small shopping area. 

The accommodation house in Marloth Park can sleep 10 guests total. There are 2 private rooms which can sleep 2 people each, and a lofted dorm room which can sleep 6 people. The minimum group size is 3-4 people, for trips with less than people there will be price adjustments.

School Trips


Zanchieta can accommodate large groups, such as school field trips. There is a large parking area with enough space for buses, and grass areas for playing and picnics. Large school groups may be divided into smaller groups for our guided walking tours as well, which do not allow any physical animal interactions. Our campgrounds are also available for braais and to use as picnic areas. 

Pre-booking required, contact bookings@zanchieta.co.za or 0722003272

Weddings and Honeymoons


Looking for an exotic wedding or honeymoon destination? Come stay in our Lodge overlooking the lion enclosures! Zanchieta is a beautiful place to take your wedding photos and there is ample privacy. Listen and enjoy the sounds of lions and jackals echoing at sunset.

Birthdays


Zanchieta is an exciting place to host a memorable kiddie’s birthday party! 

Parties may begin at 13h00 and include guided walking tours which start daily at 16h00. 

Lunches may be included, but you provide birthday cake, snacks, and decorations.

Inquire for quotes on food, drinks, and general pricing! 

It is also possible to host a party on our campgrounds, but it would be self-catering. Braai facilities are available and the land is good for picnics, which would be a lower cost than hosting close to our main farmhouse with lunch included.
