We were very blessed to see many animals and had a wonderful time!
Know the Kruger well - lovely place. Been going since childhood, love the place.
Cleanliness of the Park.
Sightings are plentiful. The park is beautiful and well looked after.
We loved visiting the KNP. We’ll be back again soon.
The place is well kept and organised.
Seeing a zebra, unfortunately not all the big 5.
More info about Kruger National Park
The second largest game reserve, the Kruger National Park is south Africa’s flagship Game reserve. Originally the Kruger Park was the Sabi Game Reserve, and it was only in 1927 when the National Parks Act was declared that the Kruger National Park came into existence (by merging the Sabi Game Reserve with the Shingwedzi Game Reserve). In 1927 the first motorists drove through the park for a mere pound.
Today the park spreads across 2 of the country’s provinces (Limpopo and Mpumalanga) and spans an awesome 19,633 square kilometres (7,580 sq mi) . Just the drive from North to South of the park is 60 kilometres (220 mi), while east to west is only 5 kilometres (40 mi). It is also home to Africa’s Big Five, the birding Big Six, as well as thousands of indigenous fauna and flora. Day guests to the park can visit between 5 - 18:30 in the South African Summer...
