We went during winter and even then it was really hot. We did not really see a lot of animals except for some buck and elephants. You can see more animals in other reserves without having to drive far to see them.

Kruger is larger in size of a small country. all the big five animals live in the park plus many more other animals. It is part of a safari experience. You can stay in the park itself in specific locations. Unforgettable experience.

Safari is a must when visiting South Africa. There are many safari operators for you to choose based on your expectations, requirements and budget. Enjoy the park and ensure you stop by the souvenir shop.

It is one of the best places to see the wild life. Easy to travel, no need for a 4x4, camps are great and you get there anything you need. The density of wild life is amazing. The moment you step in, it doesn't takes long until see big 5, wild dogs, hyenas and more. Night drives are really good... More

Enjoyed our time in the park. Saw lions, elephants and many, many more. It was just a day's drive through for us, but lots to see. Enjoyed our meal in the restaurant as well. Area is well marked and well patrolled. We went through with our own guide as well.

Very nice access to the park and back. It is only 30 minutes away from the Malalane Gate straight on the N4.

We did one night safari (what an experience) and two full day safaris. We spotted all the Big Five and many many more. It was a dream to come to Kruger and I am glad I made it and loved every bit of it... What a place... simply Vow experience... Night game drive is a must....

Kruger lived up to all the Hype. I went on a 2 day Safari with Africa Spear and saw so many different animals. We were debating a Cape Town Safari, but glad we went here instead.

Thank Jesse F
