How to Choose a Kruger National Park Wildlife Safari Tour

How to Choose a Kruger National Park Wildlife Safari Tour

The Kruger National Park is South Africa’s largest game reserve. With more than 7,500 square miles (19,400 square kilometers) of bush and savannah, the park is home to Africa’s Big Five: lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo. Here are some tips for finding your dream safari.

For the Bucket-Lister

Increase your chances of spotting the Big Five on a full-day tour and enjoy two game drives in one day. You might also see hyena, giraffe, wildebeest, and zebra, as well as hippos and crocodiles along the riverbanks. Most tours include entrance fees and pickup from hotels in Nelspruit, White River, or Hazyview; some tours also include lunch in the park.

For the Time-Crunched Visitor

You don’t need to spend a full day exploring the park; game drives typically last around three hours and offer incredible wildlife-watching opportunities at any time of the day. Opting for an early-morning tour leaves the rest of the day to spend as you please, while afternoon tours are ideal for late risers. Hotel pickup and drop-off help you maximize your time.

For the After-Hours Explorer

Wildlife is often at its most active around sunset, when temperatures drop and the animals head out to hunt or visit the watering holes. An evening safari offers a greater chance of sightings, and continuing your tour after dark affords a rare chance to observe nocturnal animals.

For the Adventurous Traveler

An African safari is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and opting for a multi-day tour lets you travel farther and savor the experience. Explore areas of the park such as Blyde River Canyon, the Drakensberg Mountains, and Sabi Sands; spend the night at a luxury safari lodge; and enjoy a traditional braai (South African-style barbecue).
