What you'll do

One of the continent’s most famous wildlife watching areas, the Kruger National Park and its surrounding private reserves need little introduction! Filled to bursting with an abundance of wildlife, the Big Five are all present and correct and the chances of seeing cats are excellent. Many come to Kruger to see the secretive leopard with a good success rate, and white rhino also feature high on the elusive species list. In the northern, remote areas, the birding is fantastic, and they are your best bet for a back-to-nature walking safari (although walks are also available in other areas too).  In Kruger, however, game drives, self-drive or guided, are the words on everyone’s lips. With its vast road network and good facilities, Kruger is one of the best places in the world for a self-drive safari and the majority of roads are suitable for 2WD. Otherwise, join a game drive with a professional guide; morning and afternoon game drives are par for the course but in some concessions, evening drives are available for the chance to see the rare nocturnal species. All in all, an iconic safari destination that you will remember forever.
