We spent a week at Kruger Park staying in various camps. We loved it when we visited 12 years ago but it seemed even better this time. We saw the big five. We did several early morning drives through the camps as well as an after dark drive. The very best big five viewing was during sunrise drives. We saw... More

Extremely comfortable and ambiance was amazing, surrounding bush is special, very close to river and bird life was abundant.

Kruger national park is an extremely exciting, great for all people, your best going in July time as it's winter months, the grass is low... a few days is good to travel around Kruger. The hotel's are very good also, some can be African tradition, others like all hotels, food is cheap, beverage is cheap. But Kruger you travel in... More

We stayed at Rustique B&B in Graskop three nights, primarily having come to see the Blyde river canyon. But the owner Lucinda gave us a tip that we could easily do the Kruger park in a day since one of the closest gates to the park was just some 40 min drive away. We drove past Hazyview and entered the... More

During our 6 week trip through South Africa, Botwana, Namibia and back to Cape Town, Kruger National Park was our favourite place and we stayed at 3 different campsites for one night each. We were travelling through Kruger during the dry season in October and entered the park halfway up at Phalaborwa and travelled to the top, leaving at Pafuri.... More

As a 52-year-old nature lover who has traveled around, I rate Kruger as one of the best things I have ever done. My partner and I are at 6 days and counting, driving from the south boundary to the north. If you are only interested in seeing dense populations of wildlife, stay to the south, but if you are a...

We were lucky. One of our party has relations with a lodge in nearby Marloth Park and were able to take us on tour for the two days we spent in the park. Phot and camcorder opportunities abounded and we saw 4 out of the 5 'biggies', the leopard eluding our cameras although the driver spotted one fleetingly. We saw... More

We did the whole day safari and the night safari as well. We got to see four of the Big Five with the exception of the Leopard. We saw Lions, Elephants, Rhinos and Wildebeest. We also got to see many other animals such as hippos, wild hares, birds, buffalos, kudus, etc. The park is full of Impala everywhere. They are... More

We bought a day pass for 2 adults and registered our vehicle at the Malelane Entrance Gate (which is less than an hours' drive from Nelspruit) which costs a total of R600. The whole process was well organized and didn’t take long at all. You get a book, a map and some do’s and don’ts and you’re on your way.... More

This was a trip I was looking forward for so long and it was so amazing, our country really has it all and not many countries can compete for what we have. I loved every minute of this trip and looking forward seeing it again soon
