Patience is a virtue. How true that saying is. We took our own vehicle into through the Paul Kruger Gate. Rather slow service, by the two staff serving. Some 33 minutes queuing to pay and get in. Over 2 full days, we travelled. we had seen the big 5 plus giraffes, wart hogs, zebras etc. It was a sheer privilege... More

Definitely a must see reserve for locals and foreigners. You're always bound to see some beautiful animals and sights when you're there.

I have been to Kruger many times, returning this past month with a friend on his first trip to Africa. It is always fun to see animals, but especially fun to watch someone else take in the scale of Africa and what it has to offer. In my opinion Kruger is a professionally managed park that takes pride in the... More

I have been going to the Kruger National Park since i was born, literally the first time my parents took me was when I was 3 months old. There is no place like it on earth, if you have never been you should put it on your bucket list. I keep going back as it is a place that you... More

Kruger was an excellent opportunity to see many of the big 5 along with many others. Able to get up close in many situations

An amazing place to visit and must be on the bucket list for any nature lover. If not a local utilise one of the tour companies (I certainly recommend Jurie from Vula Tours) as they have the knowledge and passion to make the most of your visit. Also sitting that bit higher gives great views of the elusive wildlife. Now... More

What a day! Within an hour of entering the park we had seen the Big 5 and saw them several times over plus many more animals by the end of the day. Maybe the clear views of so many animals is due to the drought conditions the park has suffered from over several years. Everything was so dry and greenery... More

Family of 4, 2 teenagers staying at Kruger camps. We recommend moving to one camp to another following a specific route. Example: crocodile bridge, then Berg en Dal, Lower sabie and Skukuza. If you move you get to drive different routes and different scenarios. We did not do the north part of the park! It's huge! If it's the first... More

Every time we go to Kruger is always a different experience. Here you can see animals in his own habitat and different species, the rivers and the mountains makes you feel very relaxed. It is very quiet and safe, just don't get out of the car and keep your windows closed. You have also camps to rest with good restaurants,... More

It was a nice experience although we did not get to see much animals. However I think it would be better if you travelled with a 4X4 so that you are able to drive to the gravel roads, deeper into the Park. However would not want to risk this with a car in case you get a puncture.
