A visit to Kruger National Park is a perfect chance to experience the beauty of South Africa, the diversity of its landscape and the excitement of spotting Africa's Big Five in one breathtaking place. Three days is enough time to explore this vast game reserve and the surrounding area overland, on foot, with a guide or even on your own.

Day One: Rise and Shine
Set an early alarm and head out on a sunrise game drive. Warm up with hot tea and biscuits on the chilly ride to Kruger's gates. Watch the park wake up during a three-hour drive through the bush. After a hot shower and a bit of lunch, head to nearby Sabi Sands Game Reserve for an afternoon game drive. Guides in this park can go “off road”, giving travelers the thrill of getting up close with wildlife—including all of Africa’s Big Five.  

Day Two: Foot It
Spend the day wandering wilderness trails of Kruger with expert armed guides. Wind through the bush on Nyalaland Trail and follow the Madzaringwe Stream before arriving at the Lanne Gorge. Spend some time reveling in the breathtaking views as you search for some of the rare birds that dot this mountain path. Finally, explore some of the recently discovered fossils on the way back to camp.

Day Three: Conservation
After spotting animals in the wild, learn about efforts to protect and preserve them at the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Center. Take the afternoon and tour this facility that releases captive-bred cheetahs into the wild and nurses orphaned and injured animals back to health. Round out the day with a final late-night game drive for a chance to catch Kruger’s nocturnal creatures hunting in the bush.
