Kruger is simply amazing. Despite lots of tourists, it is so large that it seems to accommodate everyone. It's a long list of what we saw from our rover: Leopard, Elephant, Rhino, Zebra, Impala, Wild Dog, Warthog, Giraffe and a multitude of colorful birds. The game crosses the road and seems to invite numerous close encounters. Very early morning is... More

Loved Kruger, it was well worth the visit. It's like nothing I have experienced before and it's safe to say, I won't go to a zoo again, this is definitely the way to see animals. We went for 2 1/2 days which was perfect. We saw Cheetahs hunting the first evening which was amazing. We got to see so many... More

The early bird catches the worm so they say and it is definitely true if you want to see game. We entered the park at 6am and had only driven a short way when we saw a Lion - wow! We held our breath as he chased a giraffe but she out run him. Then with another lion he stalked... More

Kruger National Park is just one of those special places in the world you just want to keep coming back and coming back and coming back! Every visit is different and you will always see a spectacular assortment of flora and fauna every time you visit. We have stayed in the KNP bungalows and travelled on the KNP game drives... More

Every trip is a unique experience. Today was a day for giraffes, elephants and birding. Entered through Crocodile Bridge and travelled the gravel roads to Lower Sabie for Brunch. Then cut across South of Skukuza and exited through Malelane. Nature unspoilt. If you are reading this as a foreigner and want to see the Big 5 then rather go to... More

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.

We camped at Tsendze Rustic Camp over the long weekend in March. There is no electricity in the camp and the ablution facilities function with solar panels (lights) and gas (hot water). There is 32 sites and the camp was fully booked, resulting in a much higher than normal noise level and much lower than normal rustic experience. It is... More

Please please take a "warm" jacket and a hat or scarf, a powerful torch and something to drink. It gets really cold on the open truck, even though the weather was warm. Entertaining drive and you will get to see some interesting animals but felt that we couldn't see as much due to the high grass at this time of... More
