Kruger National Park 365
Arguably one of Africa’s most popular safari experiences – whose legacy spans over a century and nearly two million hectares – the Kruger National Park is also the largest protected wilderness area in South Africa. A huge variety of game, bird and plant species, easy accessibility via air and road, broad range of accommodation options across various reserves, and spectacular diversity of terrain make it one of the most iconic and sought-after travel destinations on the continent.
The subtropical climate is appealing all year round with each season offering an upside – depending on what your safari priorities are. In summer (November to March) temperatures can climb above 38°C, and come with high humidity and the occasional evening thundershower. For game viewing, winter (May to August) is good, as the vegetation is sparser and days are still warm, and so is spring, which promises bird enthusiasts the return of migrant flocks.
One of the best attributes of the Kruger National Park is the sheer variety it offers visitors by way of accommodation. From ultra-luxury private lodges and reserves to affordable friendly-family camps, there is something for every budget and taste. Likewise, options for transport vary from self-drive to shuttle hire, charter planes or scheduled flights. Accordingly, you can tailor your trip to your exact specifications.
