the park visit was amazing! i got to see animals that ive failed to see in other parks, including rhino. the Protea Hotel was nice to stay in: rooms are average though. service was good. friendly staff. good proximity to other attractions such as God's Window etc. the weather is a bit chilly though, even in summer.

We spent 4 days in the park and had an awesome time! Saw the big 5 and black rhino as well as some rare birds! We also went on a sunset game drive from Crocodile Bridge which I highly recommend! Our game ranger, Maxwell, was well informed and very friendly. A good visit all round!

Had the most brilliant day guided by Thornhill Safari lodge team. Saw all the big five plus cheetah and much more. Don't self drive here as you'll miss so much. Stay at a lodge and get the professionals to take you in as they see and find everything.

Everything was perfect in the Skukuza Camp. We had three perfect days in the Kruger, but we could have stayed there for a whole month!

Life changing experience. Great place to visit. Night safari brilliant. Pity some travellers forgot lions are wild and attempted to use camera flash. There is always one!

This was quite simply the holiday of a lifetime. We spent seven full days self driving from the top of the park to the bottom and would happily do that same holiday every year for the rest of our lives. Difficult to know where to begin describing it. All I would say is, you don't need to stay in luxury... More

We visited Kruger with our teenage sons. We did the Lebombo Eco Trail which starts on Sunday morning and ends on Thursday. For this trail we had to have a 4x4 vehicle and some experience in driving off road is definitely a must. On the official web it stated that the roads were unpaved but not particularly rough. It turned... More
