The iconic Kruger National Park is one of Africa’s largest and oldest game reserves with an outstanding diversity of wildlife. Here you can track the elusive big cats on a self-drive, witness herds of antelope basking in the sun and watch as mighty elephants cross the plains.
Founded by President Paul Kruger back in 1894, today the Kruger National Park offers some of the finest safari experiences in South Africa. Claiming an area just shy of 20,000 km squared, the wildlife found here goes far beyond the Big Five, with nearly 150 mammals and over 500 species of bird calling the Greater Kruger home.
The accessibility of the main Kruger Park makes it a frequent choice for self-drivers. There is a vast network of roads that make for easy exploration, however it can get very busy with no regulations over the number of vehicles at sightings and no off-road driving.
In recent times a number of private concessions have opened within the national park as well as luxury private game reserves. With these there is much more control over visitor numbers and vehicles at wildlife sites allowing for a far more exclusive safari experience. As well as this they offer experienced and highly qualified guides who will share their knowledge and give you an insight into the workings of the bush.
With direct flights to Cape Town and beach getaways such as Mozambique and Mauritius, a safari in the Kruger is a worthy addition to any South African itinerary. Get in touch with us to start planning your wildlife safari in South Africa’s Kruger.
