I had always wanted to visit Kruger National Park…you know one for the bucket list…and, after choosing to stay at Royal Kruger Lodge I couldn’t be happier with my safari experience!
Vic’s friendly service via email whilst we were initially planning the trip from AUS saw that we had all the information we needed prior to arriving. Upon arrival we were greeted by Sean, who was an excellent host and ensured that we had everything we needed from the moment we stepped onto the property, to the moment we (sadly) departed.
With the gracious and accommodating staff, delicious meals, comfortable rooms (serviced daily) and relaxing atmosphere the lodge really felt like a home away from home for me.
Your days can be spent out on safari with the thrills of wildlife spotting (thanks to our expert guide Robert, who seriously has a fantastic eye for game spotting), off on a tour to Swaziland, on a nature walk around Marloth Park or just chilling at the lodge with a massage – the beauty of it is that you choose what suits you most! Nights can spent watching the sunset over the river whilst enjoying a few cold ones, or relaxing on the patio at the lodge sharing the days stories with fellow travellers.
The atmosphere at the lodge is amazing - giraffe, warthog and other wildlife (including my personal favourite - ‘Kevin’ the Kudo), wonder the RKL grounds nonchalantly, giving you an opportunity to see these beautiful animals up close (excellent for photos – don’t forget to charge your cameras!). You can also often here the lions roaring at night in the distance as you finish your meal or drinks – just magical!
I recommend RKL to all, what a perfect way to experience a South African safari adventure - I can’t wait to go back!
