The perfect safari holiday in Kruger

Renowned as one of the best parks in Africa for its game drives – a trip to the Kruger presents a great opportunity to for wildlife viewing.

Kruger National Park, in north-eastern South Africa, is one of Africa’s largest game reserves. The parks surface area spans 19633 km² as many of the surrounding private reserves have removed their fences, allowing wildlife to roam freely between reserves. The Kruger is made up of the national park, and several private game areas adjoining. The best known of these are Sabi Sands, Timbvati, and the greater Makalili conservancy as well as Kapama, Manyaleti, Thornybush & Balule.

.The best wildlife viewing in Kruger is during the dry winter months from May to September. At this time the bush thins out and animals congregate around waterholes and rivers. Conditions tend to get better as winter progresses and in particular September when the mornings are a bit less chilly than in mid-winter. The best wildlife viewing time also coincides with the low season, making it quieter and slightly more attractive.

The wildlife in the Kruger National Park is the focus of the majority of any trips, and generally is very worthwhile. It has a high density of wild animals including the Big Five, hundreds of other mammals & diverse bird species. Mountains, bush plains and tropical forests are all part of the landscape.
