What a national treasure we have in this park. We found the roads very well- maintained and the stop-off facilities excellent. The entrance process early in the morning is tedious, and online booking only helps you at the first gate (at Crocodile bridge). Even so,...More

A family trip, 2 families, 4 kids, a car: plenty of animals, near sights of big 5, families of elephants, zebras, giraffes, lazy lions. Safe for a self drive and fully immersive experience.

The Kruger Park as a national heritage, is still one of the best places to visit with a family. Wake every day, to encounter different sightings with its natural beauty. A must do for every family.

Fall towards end of winter because the grass is not there that much and all animals will be looking for the smallest green grass available
