Kruger Safari holidays provide the ultimate game viewing experience. Known as one of the largest game reserves in Africa, prepare to cast your eyes upon unparalleled beauty and awe-inspiring landscapes; from mountainous backdrops and open savannah to riverbanks, undulating hills, glades of Fever Trees and plenty of wildlife.
The Kruger is a wilderness just waiting to be explored, drive through the dusty savannah, admiring the riverine forest as you look for Africa’s big 5 - elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos and Cape buffalo – in their natural environment. See vast herds of impala and zebra as they congregate around a waterhole, venture past giraffes as they browse in the sun and prepare for every hair to stand on end as you watch a pride of lions, resting in the shade as their cubs play amongst the lofty outcrops. Every moment on a Kruger Safari holiday is filled with adventure, excitement and lots of unexpected surprises.

When it comes to a once in a lifetime safari experience Kruger Safari Holidays has it all and to top it off, why not enjoy it in style?

Best time to visit Kruger National Park
The Greater Kruger is a great place to visit all year round, however, the dry season between April and October is usually the best time for a safari. The later you visit in the dry season, the better your chances of seeing wildlife, the bush becomes drier and animals seek out water holes so viewing is easier.

“Birdwatchers will love the Roberts Birds app, a very handy tool to help you keep track of every bird you see and identify any new sightings.”
“Don’t forget to take a good pair of binoculars with you so you can get an even closer look at Kruger’s incredible wildlife. Roof prism binoculars are best as they are small, compact and let in plenty of light.”
“Taking a walking safari is one of the most exciting experiences – nothing will ever compare to the thrill of seeing the animals outside the safety of your safari vehicle.”
