South Africa's World Famous Park

Views: 79 Visited: Apr 2019 Reviewed: May 09, 2019

One of the greatest and largest national parks in Africa. The world famous Kruger National Park is home to the famous Big 5 - lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino. The park also holds a big concentration of cheetah and wild dog in this magnificent reserve. It’s not uncommon to see these animals while spending a few days in the park.

As a visitor to the park who lives very close to the Kruger it’s my opinion that it holds the greatest... read more

Kruger National Park is one of the most famous game parks and offers a variety of accommodation and wildlife and is a Big 5 game reserve. I have visited this park many times. The game viewing never fails to disappoint. I also suggest entering down south by the Malelane gate and taking a drive to the middle of the park to the main camp called Skukuza. There is a spa here where you can have a meal at the main restaurant which has a lovely deck w... read more

Classic big 5 safari in the heart of South Africa

Views: 537 Visited: Jun 2015 Reviewed: Mar 09, 2016

Arguably one of the most famous national parks in the world, the Kruger National Park offers one of the best wildlife experiences in Africa. On an average 4-day stay between the months of May to September you can expect to see most of the big five as well as many other African mammals, birds and fauna. The photos attached are taken from the Timbavati Game Reserve, on the Western Edge of Kruger. read more

My First Safari

My first safari was this past October at the Skukuza Rest Camp operated by Outlook Safaris. My daughter and I simply loved it beginning with the transfer from/to Johannesburg from our hotel to our accommodation and actual daily tours led by truly professional and knowledgeable guides. read more

Kruger National Park

Views: 490 Visited: Sep 2014 Reviewed: Feb 09, 2015

I visit this park often and really enjoy nature at its best with the park and camps that blend in with nature. The park management look after this park quite well and you can read about it in various media magazines, Facebook pages and other media.
Although the old traditional restaurants have fallen away, they have been finally replaced with Mug & Bean, Cattle Barron and others. Not bad food at all. The camps do manage the accommodation wel... read more

3 Ways to do Kruger

Views: 584 Visited: Nov 2014 Reviewed: Nov 25, 2014

South Africa's Kruger National Park is arguably the most affordable and most accessible major African game park. Because of this and because of the consistently good all-year game viewing, it is also one of the most popular game reserves in Africa.
There are basically three ways to "do" Kruger:

1) You can go on your own and self-drive.
2) You can go with a tour operator on a guided safari.
3) You can stay at a private safari lodge.

Pssst!! Secrets about Kruger...

Kruger National Park in Mpumalanga, South Africa is an amazing place...

That is if you know the secrets:

1: Time
2: Place
3: A bit of luck
4: Rainfall
5: Were to go

1: Timing
Your timing to see some of Africa's top wildlife animals is best early morning when the gates open and about an hour before the gates closes.
WHY? It's not that hot and being animals in the wild the only thing they are concerned about is survival, this me... read more

1 thing you didn’t know about Kruger

Views: 696 Visited: Jul 2010 Reviewed: Jan 18, 2014

I have been coming to the Kruger National Park since I was a little girl. Our family holidays took place in the camps on the banks of the mighty Olifants River. I remember early mornings with coffee and rusks to get ready for game drives. Sunsets without television or telephones (this was before mobile phones and the Internet!), just whiskey for the mom, beer for the dad and some cool drinks for the kids.

Kruger has grown up with me. It is... read more

Excitement in the African Bush!

Views: 644 Visited: Oct 2013 Reviewed: Nov 22, 2013

On a recent trip to South Africa, I was lucky enough to visit the spectacular Kruger National Park. What a thrill!

We stayed at Savanna Private Game Lodge in Sabi Sand Game Reserve, which is located in the Greater Kruger Park area.

During our safari adventures we saw the Big 5 in two days, as well as other exciting wildlife, including crocodile, wild dogs (with their pups!), mongoose, warthog, wildebeest, zebra, and much more.

Kruger: The Perils of Box-Ticking

Views: 562 Visited: Aug 2005 Reviewed: Nov 05, 2013

We stayed at Mopani Camp on our first ever safari vacation. Bar/restaurant had excellent balcony overlooking a lake full of hippos, crocs and birds. Shop, cafeteria. Camp was full of savannah scrub and a big baobab, a micro-safari in itself. Chalet was spacious and well-appointed. Only complaint (also encountered elsewhere in SA) was lack of European norms of service when ordering/waiting for food. Went on a game walk, two night drives and a f... read more

Stunning...easily lives up to the hype

Views: 499 Visited: Feb 2013 Reviewed: Sep 20, 2013

Piles of fresh dung and bulldozed trees had got me excited, and within moments of entering Kruger, a large herd of elephants slowly crossed in front of us. Buffalo were seemingly everywhere, strange-looking creatures that I grew to like over my three day safari. In the Kruger it felt like we were always on a game drive, in particular there seemed to be no end to the rhino sightings.

Kruger National Park is in Mpumalanga province, in the no... read more

Wild about Kruger - a magical place for the 'DIYer'

Views: 520 Visited: Jan 2012 Reviewed: Sep 17, 2013

Kruger National Park is, without a doubt, one of those places that all safari-lovers should visit at least once in their lives.

It's huge. It's untamed. And it's up to you to find the fun.

Kruger offers great value for money. You can very reasonable accommodation, but still have access to some of the most amazing game in the world. The trade-off is less luxurious accommodation, and no personalized service.

If you've never tried a sel... read more

THE African Safari National Park

Views: 834 Visited: Jan 2009 Reviewed: May 22, 2013

Although there are places all over Africa that will blow the mind and your expectations out of the water, Kruger truly delivers. The main roads through the park are unobtrusive enough, and the numbers of game high enough, that you are virtually guaranteed to have a Jurassic Park-level experience.
We witnessed a herd of rhino, cheetahs fighting, a leopard in a tree, and a full-on bull elephant showdown. Every corner of the park is worth visiti... read more

Africa's wildlife at its best (with excellent tourist luxuries!)

Views: 641 Visited: Sep 2011 Reviewed: May 02, 2013

Kruger National Park is part of South African tradition and a much loved safari, game trekking and holiday spot. It has so much to offer, from accessibility to the largest game of all African parks, waiting to be spotted around every bush, accommodation options to suit every taste and budget and even Internet availability and a golf course these days. No wonder it gets a bit crowded at times! But the park’s almost 20,000 square kilometers are... read more

Wonderful Leopard Sightings in Kruger Park

Views: 696 Visited: Jun 2012 Reviewed: Apr 23, 2013

The Kruger National Park has to be on everyone's bucket-list! If you have not yet been here, start planning your adventure. There are dozens of options for accommodation - Berg en Dal camp is my personal favourite as it is more modern then the older camps and has a swimming pool - very important in Summer! Of course, there are also many luxury accommodation options if you can afford them, but our family loves to stay in self-catering bungalow... read more

Whether you stay in the 5 star luxury accommodations or the bare bone basic accommodations at the Kruger National Park, you will not leave empty handed.
