We bought a day pass for 2 adults and registered our vehicle at the Malelane Entrance Gate (which is less than an hours' drive from Nelspruit) which costs a total of R600. The whole process was well organized and didn’t take long at all. You get a book, a map and some do’s and don’ts and you’re on your way.... More

This was a trip I was looking forward for so long and it was so amazing, our country really has it all and not many countries can compete for what we have. I loved every minute of this trip and looking forward seeing it again soon

This is fascinating place. The variety of the wild life is second to none. From personal experience the best way to visit is to self drive. Driving in the park is easy but take note of the speed limits and be aware of the distances. If you are an international traveller and intending to drive in every day for more... More

we spent 6 nights in the park. Two nights Berg-en-dal and that was very badly organised, had two extra beds in the lounge and cluttered up Two night Satara this was OK One night in Letaba and this is as far as we are concerned the best camp of all overlooking the river. Parts of the park was very dry... More

Extremely interesting. We saw such a wide variety of wild life. It was absolutely stunning. The shops in the park are extremely reasonable with their prices.

We saw the area around Numbi gate in the southern part of the park! An area that had got a lot of rain just before we got there so the amount of green everywhere was amazing! We also got to see all of the big five and all of them in different types of scenery since there is no need... More

If you have the time spend at least 10 days in the park and "self Drive", as well as going on sunset game drives. The amount of wildlife that we saw was amazing and on many of our viewings we were totally alone. The rest camps that we stayed at were all fairly good and a lot have restaurants overlooking...

We stayed at Skukusa a well developed camp with comfortable bungalows with aircon, restaurants and shops. The style is very much mid range good value but impersonal, compare it with a Travel Lodge, everything you need to do your own thing. The game viewing was excellent, it was very hot 45c and dry so all the animals were close to... More

San Parks Works very well. You can go with your car, sleep in the lodges and see de beautiful park. Sometimes de lodge have inner trails or interesting things to do or see.You can see de park perfectly with a two wheels drive car. If you have a 4x4 better, you can choose more trails.

A few hours gap on a wine business trip gave a few of us the opportunity to visit this national treasure. The drought seems to be receding and normality returning. Great
