5 Star National Park
Dec 2020
Kruger National Park certainly is the place to experience the beauty of nature and animals and it doesn't disappoint on every occasion.
Returned with my teens and had an amazing experience and created lasting memories. We sighted all of the BIG 5 and so many more. The landscape, rock formations and scenery was awe-inspiring. This incredible Park is truly a must for all nature lovers and definitely value for money for the day visit.
The Skukuza Day Visitors area seemed a bit neglected but all in all a wonderful visit.

My first visit to the Kruger National Park! Wow what an amazing experience!! It is so well organised with comfortable rest places where one can have a picnic. It was so clean and safe. This Park is 2.5 million hector! I enjoyed the animals so much! On my first safari I saw the lions enjoy their kill of a buffalo! What a sight!! For the first time I sighted a leopard! What a gracious animal but scary! The Kruger National Park is still the best for sightings of the big 5! It exceeded my expectations!! Highly recommended!

Best nature reserve
Dec 2020 • Family
Visiting Kruger was an amazing experience. There is such a wide variety of wildlife. It is a privilege to be able to experience nature in this way. The park itself is well looked after- the roads are in good condition, there are a number of rest areas in clearly demarcated areas. Would love to visit again and again.

Good...bucket list checked
Nov 2020
We loved the ability to do a self-drive in the park in our car, this was our preferred method of touring the park as we had a jumpy 3-year-old in tow and could not use an open-top safari vehicle. The park roads are paved and you don't need a 4WD.....literally any car will do. Network coverage is not available in most parts so if you can download and save your offline map you will be all set to navigate through this enormous park. Take note of the big five animal sightings displayed on the boards at the entrance of the various gated rest stops.

Being from Kenya though, we admittedly had high expectations and were disappointed that we did not spot as much of the big five except for elephants. This is possibly due to our preference to self-drive sans guide but the boards did not indicate these prized animal sightings in the two days prior....or really just our bad luck. Lots of birds and springbok. The signage on some of the attractions could be improved.

Skukuza rest stop has a swanky cafe with great coffee, snacks and a train-themed sitdown restaurant. The play area is a plus if travelling with kids. Though we prefer the vistas of the savannah in the East African game drives, Kruger was on our bucket list and it was a good experience.

November perfect time
Nov 2020 • Family
We have been here several times. Never have we seen so many different kinds of animals like this time around in November. Also there were lots of baby animals around from all sorts. Really the perfect stay.

Better than before Covid 19
Sep 2020
My 53rd visit since 1998 and stayed in Chalets in Skukuza, Satara and Talamati for 9 days and traveled just under 2000km We had awesome sightings as if the animals wanted to put up a show for us after the Covid lock down. The Park is in the best shape that I've seen it for many years and it is evident that the lock down time has been used to do a lot of upkeep. Gardens, roads, accommodation etc all in a far better shape than before - now is the time to visit this gem.

Outstanding experience
Sep 2020 • Family
We booked with Hylton Ross On Safari Africa for a safari in a game viewing vehicle with tiered seating which allowed for optimal animal spotting. The guide, Johan was amazing. He pointed out animals we didn't notice and imparted interesting information. We can't wait to come back and try the 2 night tented safari. Prices are well-worth it for the outstanding experience.

This is paradise

We have just returned from visiting this wonderful game reserve. Despite it currently being very dry, we saw an incredible amount of wildlife.
Seeing the BIG 5 if you send a couple of days in the game reserve is a certainty...just be patient.
In a nutshell, it was a fantastic visit!
