Kruger Park South
is located in the Kruger National Park
in the Northeast
region of South Africa
This southern sector of Kruger has some of the most diverse landscapes and the highest wildlife densities in the region. The area contains several decent lodge options, all set in large private concession areas away from the crowds.
However this area also soaks up the vast majority of the considerable vehicle traffic, which is a major negative. To put it into perspective, Kruger gets almost one million visitors each year, roughly ten times that of Serengeti
. So don't expect this to be some kind of untouched wilderness.
Most of this traffic takes the form of self-drive sedan cars, minibuses and coaches, cruising from one enormous rest-camp to the next along sealed main roads. It can be fun to do and it is cheap, but is not exactly a high quality safari experience.SeasonsAccommodation
