Kruger National Park has been our holiday destination since I can remember...my opinion...2 weeks in Kruger is a must...no better place to unwind (which takes time) and to become one with nature. We normally visit the south of the park and enjoy staying in different...More

The Kruger park is the true Kruger treasure. Try the detour roads and give yourself time to wander and take your time.

The Kruger National park is huge and contains an amazing variety of wildlife. We saw lions with a kill, hyenas stalking them, and absolutely loads of elephants; a group of about 30 walking along a dried up river bed. No rain at Kruger for years!...More

We flew in to Nelspruit airport and rented a car from there. Our first stop after entering from Numbi Gate was Pretoriuskop. The rondavel (bungalow) was simple but adequate with it's own kitchen, bathroom and braai. Utensils were provided. We drove down to Crocodile Bridge...More

This is an amazing park full of wildlife. You can spot the animals every few meters. From the big 5 the lion and leopard are hard to find. The best way to explore the park is by an game drive.

September & October best for game viewing - grass flattened or absent, no water lying in bush meaning animals have to visit main rivers and artificial waterholes. Trees in flower. Not too hot.
