Africa Safari: Kruger National Park Safaris

Our Kruger National Park safari options mainly traverse the southernmost regions of the park and you will visit rest camps such as Berg-En-Dal, Lower Sabie, Pretoriuskop, Skukuza, Satara, Olifants and Letaba. We also offer visitors the opportunity to stay at Kwa-Madwala Private Game Reserve and other smaller private game lodges surrounding the Kruger National Park.

The Kruger National Park is surrounded by many private game reserves such as Balule, Timbavati, Thornybush, Kapama, Manyeleti, Sabi Sands and Mala Mala which have unfenced borders with the greater Kruger Park. By having the unfenced borders it allows for a free flow of animals through the private reserves. These private reserves have a number of luxury lodges within them ranging from good 3-star to exclusive luxury 5-star and we can assist in making bookings at many of these for you.

No other sanctuary in Africa can match the Kruger Park in the sheer number and variety of its life forms: the savannah plains of the Kruger Park, the forest and its rivers are home to:
  • Nearly 150 kinds of mammal, including the ‘Big Five’ (lion, elephant, rhino, leopard and buffalo)
  • More than 500 bird species
  • 112 reptile types (50 of them are snakes of one sort or another)
  • 49 different kinds of fish
  • 34 species of amphibian
  • An uncountable number of insects
  • 500 types of trees; as well as a vast array of shrubs, grasses and bulbous plants
Add to this a passionate staff, several lovely accommodation venues and incredible scenery and you will be rest assured that your safari will be an unforgettable experience.

The Kruger National Park is the same size as Wales and larger than the state of Hawaii, but plans are well under way to make the Kruger Park even bigger, extending its boundaries into neighbouring Zimbabwe and Mozambique in order to create a giant, 35, 000 sq kilometre wildlife conservation area to be known as the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park.

The lowvelds' climate in the Kruger Park is subtropical, with hints of the tropical in its northern parts. The summer rains are often heavy with plenty of thunder and lightning. Winters are mild and bone-dry. This means that during the summer, one can expect the bush to be lush, thick and beautifully green. The result is strong, healthy animals, but the tall grass can make it a bit harder to spot them. Due to the lack of rain during winter months, the bush thins out and the animals tend to congregate around the waterholes resulting in some excellent game viewing, although the terrain is not all that pleasing to the eye.

As far as African safaris go, the best wildlife experiences are often enjoyed at the hand of a guide. By opting for a guided excursion, you ensure that you have the vast knowledge and enthusiasm of a passionate THETA-registered tour guide at your disposal. Their unparalleled experience and love of the wild will enhance your park experience far beyond what you ever dreamed could be possible.

At Journey into Africa, we have compiled a comprehensive list of Africa safaris in the Kruger National Park, which are designed to accommodate a variety of budgets and requirements. Allow us to host your African safari and see why people come back time and time again.

What our guests have to say...

Journey Into Africa did a great job of answering our preliminary questions and provided quotes for 3 or 4 tour options. Our guide Christiaan was without a doubt very skilled and knowledgeable and made sure our tour ran very smoothly. He went over and above the call of duty. Thank you for making our World Cup and South Africa visit so very special.
