Kruger is an unforgettable experience. There is wildlife in large numbers including the Big Five. Many birds are located here also. We had a great time on the safari vehicles.

An African Safari has been in the top 5 of things to do before...well whatever and while I didn't get to see all of the Big Five, I was very happy with what I did see. I'm amused at the reviews that complain about "not enough animals", etc since of course this isn't an amusement park. Given the huge size... More

An incredible time over the course of a few days in Kruger. Cannot recommend this amazing part of the world enough. Beautiful weather, fantastic people, expert guides. Overall would love to go back again and again. I recommend the early morning truck guides and our bush walk was the highlight of my holiday in South Africa

We had a truly memorable visit to Kruger. We were on an excellent Riviera holiday to South Africa. Kruger was such a highlight . With our guide Rufus we saw the big five in one viewing. We also saw many other antelope and of course giraffe,zebra and wildebeest. The rangers were in constant touch with each other and also very... More

It was a big Place, but we Think it was to Commercial. the other ones in the surroundings were as good as this and even better. You got the big five outside Kreuger Park, but not inside.

The Kruger is a once in a life time experience that should not be missed. Getting up at 4 in the morning has never been more rewarding! We saw all of the African wildlife that we hoped for, and even more. ..elephants, rhinos, lions, giraffe, hippo, zebra..and many more. I would suggest that you skip the night time visit at... More

We went to the Park twice in the week that we stayed in the area. As usual it was worth the visit. It was just very disappointing to find that, when stopping over for lunch, a Wimpy has now popped up at one of the rest camps. It just did not seem to fit in to the whole setting but... More

South Africa is a land of incredible beauty, but the Kruger National Park has to rate as the 'crown jewel'. Words fail me to describe the beauty of the land & to slowly drive through the park & see the wild in its natural setting. As you wander through the park, you just don't know what magnificent creatures you will... More
