It doesn’t get much better than a Kruger Park safari. Home to the widest diversity of wildlife in South Africa and delivering some of the finest game viewing on the continent, the Kruger offers international award-winning accommodation, smooth-running logisitics and some of Africa’s best trackers and guides, ready to take you on Big 5 game drives and big-thrill walking safaris.The term Kruger National Park usually refers to the main park itself, open to the public but far bigger and wilder than you might think – particularly the further north you go. Game viewing is excellent throughout this country-sized destination.
If you’re a wildlife lover, there’s no place better than the Greater Kruger for a real South African safari.
With incredibly diverse animal life and stunning African scenery covering an expanse of over 2 million hectares, nothing quite compares to a private lodge safari in Kruger.
You’ll track leopard, lion and all kinds of other wildlife at dawn, accompanied by your expert safari guide and return at dusk when the animals are at their most active.
While the Kruger National Park is renowned for its awe-inspiring safari experiences and abundance of plant and animal life, it also offers an enormous range of unparalleled safari accommodation. Ranging from Tsonga styled lodges that emanate romance and warmth, to luxury lodge perched on the banks of the Crocodile River, the Kruger National Park does not disappoint when it comes to traditional and luxurious safari accommodation.
There are different highlights and attractions to be found in the Kruger National park .The Fact that it has a privately owned and managed status, the service offering in the private reserves has outshone that of the national parks’. The main difference is that the safari experience in the private reserves is a far much outstanding one. Wildlife sightings are managed between the lodges in these private reserves, so you will never go a single day without viewing game. The best part about game viewing at Kruger is that the 4×4 vehicles are able to track animals off-road, thus offering you higher chances of finding animals in their most hidden places in the bush.
Unlike most African bush drives, you will hardly find a situation where there is overcrowding of vehicles and tourists during game drives.
Night game drives also tend to give you a better experience as most animals come out of their hiding place in the night.
All this, in addition to the exclusive dining experiences, high class levels of accommodation, service and amenities that you would wish to experience.
The best time for observing the animals is the dry winter season, due to the summer rainfall of this area. At this time the grass is low and bushes and trees don’t have leaves, so that one can have an unobstructed view of the wildlife. Because it virtually doesn’t rain in winter the animals are more concentrated around the few waterholes which allows for good game viewing.
