Kruger National Park


... is located in the Northeast of South Africa.

It is the largest and best known reserve in Southern Africa, an absolutely enormous tract of land which runs for 350km along the borders of Mozambique and Zimbabwe. It is a fabulous wilderness, with intense wildlife in many areas and an enormous range of accommodation facilities from simple bush camps to extremely chic high-end lodges. Almost all of the best lodges are in private reserves, where the quality of the safari experience is much higher than that inside the main park. Some of these lodges are amongst the lowest cost in Africa, so the area is particularly popular with more budget conscious safari travellers.

The main potential downsides are that Kruger is a very busy place, with over a million visitors each year. The safari experience inside the main park is shockingly poor, with self-drive sedan vehicles convoying along sealed main roads between enormous institutional rest-camps. The weather conditions Nov/Mar can also be rather adverse.
