The Kruger park is the true Kruger treasure. Try the detour roads and give yourself time to wander and take your time.

The Kruger National park is huge and contains an amazing variety of wildlife. We saw lions with a kill, hyenas stalking them, and absolutely loads of elephants; a group of about 30 walking along a dried up river bed. No rain at Kruger for years!...More

We flew in to Nelspruit airport and rented a car from there. Our first stop after entering from Numbi Gate was Pretoriuskop. The rondavel (bungalow) was simple but adequate with it's own kitchen, bathroom and braai. Utensils were provided. We drove down to Crocodile Bridge...More
