Kruger Holidays

The Kruger is arguably one of the finest game parks in the world with plentiful accommodation to suit all pockets, gourmet bush cuisine and exciting, adrenalin-pumping wildlife experiences. Your chances of seeing the Big Five - lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo - are high.

The Kruger Park offers some of the best game viewing in Africa with no fewer than 147 mammals and over 500 species of birds waiting for you. Most Kruger game lodges offer two game drives per day. These are usually offered early in the morning (before breakfast) and late afternoon, although exact times vary according to season. Game drives are always in open top four-wheel drive vehicles, with usually just six guests per vehicle, and are carried out by an experienced knowledgeable ranger. Some lodges also include bush walks or walking safaris.

Most Kruger lodges offer three meals a day and many have African 'bomas' (a traditional outdoor dining experience). Some lodges do not accept children and those that do may insist you pay extra for a private game drive if your children are under 7. Most lodges have no fences, so wildlife can be found inside the lodges' grounds. All lodges insist you are escorted by a member of staff after dark.

Travel information

There are no non-stop flights to Kruger National Park from the UK. The nearest gateway is Johannesburg from where most people take an hour’s flight to either Nelspruit (Mpumalanga) for the southern properties or Hoedspruit for the northern part of the park. Skukuza airport also offers excellent access to Kruger, particularly the Sabi Sands region

Best time to go

Kruger has a sub-tropical climate and is a year round destination as each season brings its own highlights. Game viewing can be at its best during the dry winter months (May-September), however the wet summer season (October-April) brings full waterholes, lush bushveld, lots of newborn wildlife and also heralds the arrival of migrant birds.

Travelling with children

Parents travelling with children into or out of South Africa may be asked to show the child’s unabridged full birth certificate, and where only one parent is accompanying, parental or legal consent for the child to travel (eg an affidavit from the other parent, a court order or – if applicable – a death certificate). You should travel with these documents in case you’re asked to provide them. There are other requirements for children travelling unaccompanied or with adults who are not their parents. For more information, contact the South African High Commission www.southafricahouseuk.com or the South African Department of Home Affairs www.dha.gov.za.
