A safari has long been on my bucket list so I was thrilled when I was able to check it off this past March. It was part of a package tour my friend and I purchased thru Smartours and just for one day, however, after leaving our hotel at 5:00 a.m. and traveling about 45 minutes to get to Kruger... More

When we asked where shall we go to once we're in the park we were told "to just drive" so thats what we did and sure enough you will see animals and birds of all shapes, sizes and colour. Needless to say if you see cars stopped then you are more than likely to see something and if truth be... More

Just had a great, two day safari in Kruger National Park. Saw all of the Big Five except leopards. But, also saw spotted hyenas and black sided jackals. Our party of four spent one night at the Skukuza Camp, which was ok, but the food was nothing to get excited about. The next day, we enjoyed a late breakfast at... More

I had the joy of spending 2 days at the Kruger Park on a student tour in March. We had such a great experience, with a student safari company called Kurt's Safari. Our guide was amazing, and helped us see all of the big 5, as well as dozens of other animals and plants. Be prepared for an early morning... More

I came from Cape Town to Kruger Park, Nelspruit Airport. My pick-up driver from Jock Safari Lodge was waiting for me. The drive from Nelspruit to the Jock Safari Lodge should take about 1,5 hours, but now they have road works going on. We had to wait 1 hour at a road stop, so the whole journey took 2,5 hours....

We stayed at protea kruger gate which is located a stones throw from one of the many entrances to kruger. We drove the 4-5 hours from Johannesburg since flying was SO expensive. Protea hotel was a great value because it was closest possible hotel, clean and comfortable and included dinner and breakfast. You can book safaris from the hotel or... More

We are a family of 5 and stayed at Berg en dal Rest Camp for three nights. It was as we expected "glorified camping". The apartment/house was clean, full on kitchen (cook on electric hotplates and no oven), 2 bedrooms with 2 extra beds in the living room and outside patio with table/chairs and BBQ pit. There was no TV/phone/internet... More

We did a whole days game drive and it was amazing. The ranger was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and was able to direct us to some of the best views of the animals. Managed to see the big 5 and also some amazing scenery! Also opted to do bush walking, we walked for a few hours through the bush... More

Stayed at Lion Sands Tinga Lodge. Thought we were in heaven. Two game drives a day. Or you can get a massage and a mani-pedi in your own lodge! Clean, large (and I mean LARGE) lodge (room - sort of, but bigger). Number One!

Just returned from the Kruger with my partner and great friends, we all agreed it was a holiday of a lifetime. We were humbled by the experience and privilege of seeing all the wildlife in the park which included the big 5, all other animals and beautiful birds. We used Bearded Heron as our safari specialist and Neil, our guide,... More
