Kruger National Park

The Kruger National Park admitted the first three tourist cars in 1927. The park is one of the largest game reserves in Africa and is bigger than the state of Israel. Home to Africa’s Big Five, Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Elephant and Rhino, the park is also home to hundreds of other mammal species. Birds such as eagles, vultures and storks are plentiful. It is advisable to bring along a good pair of binoculars and a zoom lens to capture unforgettable creatures in their natural habitat.

The park is ideal for self-drive safaris with the main routes all being tarred. There is a 50kmh speed limit on the tarred roads while the limit is 40kmh on the gravel roads. Should you encounter a group of animals, try to be as quite as possible so as not to disturb them. This will give you more time to observe them in their environment. The park is part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park linking to the Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe and the Limpopo National Park in Mozambique.

Accommodation

When planning your trip remember that driving in the park at night is not permitted. Always ensure that the route you choose will give you enough time to reach your overnight accommodation before dark. The park has 21 rest camps to offer along with two private lodge concessions. Camping has become a favourite amongst many of the park’s visitors and requires no special permission within controlled camping areas.

In the area are a large variety of private game lodges bordering the Kruger Park.
