One of the best-known and largest game parks in South Africa, Kruger National Park offers superb wildlife viewing opportunities. It’s a public park, so you can drive yourself in there. The private reserves adjacent to the Kruger extend the range of the wildlife and offer less crowded game drives, combined with upmarket accommodation.
Reasons to visit Kruger National Park & Private Reserves include:
Wildlife viewing in this region is at its best from May to October as it is dry so wildlife is easier to spot as the grasses die down.
