Spent an amazing day driving through the park! Spent 11 hours total driving and eating lunch in Lower Sabie. Saw tons of animals including the big 5. With a KNG map and the KNG sightings group on WhatsApp, the park was easy to navigate and...More

This was my 2nd trip with Neil and Alastair from Bearded Heron Safaris. I wouldn't visit Kruger Park with anyone else because of the small group size (maximum 6) and the 20 + years of experience Neil has in Kruger. Not all guides are the...More

We visited Kruger Nat. Park in August. I'm told the best times to go are January and August. While the trees are bare and everything is brown in August, it is easier to see the animals through the trees. We went on drives in the...More

Krugar is immense in size, compares to the state of NJ. Unless you have unlimited time, you can just choose one area, accessed by one of the "gates" in which to explore. They do allow private cars to drive around it, but extreme caution is...More

We were very happy with the overall trip and services in South Africa. This was an epic adventure and the attention to detail was first class.

Nothing beats Kruger. But whatever you do, take the guided tours. Especially with guides that have access to the radio. The best way to see all the park has to offer.
