Visit Kruger National Park

Kruger National Park is all about the wildlife. Lions stalk their prey, leopards snooze in the trees, and herds of elephants roam the plains. Choose from a luxury safari lodge or a simple camp, then join your guide for a 4X4 safari in South Africa’s flagship national park.

South Africa’s (and potentially even Africa’s) flagship national park, Kruger is world renowned for its high densities and huge variety of wildlife. Game viewing here is an absolute treat - get your camera ready and prepare to spot mighty herds of elephant and buffalo, lion, cheetah, giraffe, hippo, zebra, the odd rhino and leopard, and impalas at every turn. Look out too for the indigenous plants and insects that call this park home.

How to get around

Hit the road

Kruger National Park is criss-crossed by an extensive network of very well maintained roads, so it’s easy to drive around. You can choose to do this in a hire car, which you might want to upgrade to a 4x4, or join an organised safari from your lodge, which will include a driver and a guide. There are advantages to both – on your own you are free to go where you like for as long as you like, while with a guide you can learn more about the plants and animals you spot along the way.
