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.
