Welcome to one of the oldest, largest and most well-established national parks in Africa. Home to the widest diversity of wildlife in South Africa and delivering some of the finest game viewing in the world, Kruger offers an unforgettable safari experience for wild life enthusiasts on a budget as well as those in search of a more luxurious getaway.
Kruger National Park is located in the north-eastern part of the country and covers more than 2 million hectares of land. The Big 5 (lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant) can very well be found here in 1 single day! But when visiting Sabi Sands, part of the Kruger Park, then you have also a very good chance to see at least 1 leopard in a day. Kruger delivers fantastic wildlife sightings with healthy populations of the familiar but also the more sought after animals such as wild dogs and birds.
Kruger is ideal for everyone: both visitors that explore the park with their own vehicle or stay at one of the luxurious private game reserves and do the opposite of roughing it: expect silver service, private swimming pools and bush dinners. A timeline can be seen in the overview below. The greener the box is by the month, the better it is to travel to Kruger in that period!
