Kruger's Private Concession Safaris
Whilst all of the other private Kruger reserves are situated on the western border of the National Park, inside the government sector of Kruger National Park there are several 'privatized concessions' of land.
These tracts of land have been effectively privatized for use by luxury safari lodge operators, and are managed in a similar way to the private reserves on the western boundary of the park, such as Sabi Sand Game Reserve and Timbavati Game Reserve.
The advantage of a private Kruger Concession lodge is that you are situated within the hallowed safari wilderness of Kruger National Park, yet have all of the benefits of a private safari lodge. Most guests visiting the government owned National Park are restricted to traversing on tar roads in their own vehicles in the crowds. However in a concession area you will enjoy day and night game drives in open vehicles with private guides, bush walks (at certain lodges) and superior quality of accommodation. As there are so few lodges in the private concessions, you also receive a great level of exclusivity in some of the finest accommodation available.
