Kruger And Surrounds holidays

Kruger is South Africa’s safari heart and each of its private concessions offers a little extra to enjoy this awe-inspiring landscape. Watch vast herds as they congregate around a waterhole, packs of South African wild dog, each with a unique coat, and the prides of lions, resting in the shade as the cubs play fight in the long grass. The Kruger is a wilderness just waiting to be explored.

Kruger And Surrounds holiday highlights

Located in the northeast of South Africa within the provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga, Kruger National Park is bordered by the Limpopo and Crocodile Rivers and the Lebombo Mountains. It is one of the largest national parks in the world and can be accessed via nine gates. It is home not only to the Big Five, but also more species of large mammal than any other African game reserve. It also has a number of endangered African wild dog packs within its boundaries as well as approximately 500 species of birds. While Kruger National Park is an icon that feature’s on most people’s bucket lists, its popularity often results in a large number of visitors, making the camps here large and often crowded. That's why we don't feature anything in the park itself, but instead head for the quieter plains of the surrounding game reserves.

Private reserves

If you’re after dedicated game drives that allow you to follow the game and provide a more intimate experience, a stay at one of the surrounding private game reserves is a must. While some are separate with boundary fences, there are some reserves that have no fences so wildlife are free to roam between Kruger and the reserves, such as Lion Sands Game Reserve in Sabi Sand and Thornybush Private Game Reserve.

Getting around

There are two main airports close to Kruger and surrounds. There are flights between Kruger Mpumalanga and Johannesburg, Durban, Cape Town and Livingstone. The other airport is Hoedspruit, which has flights to and from Cape Town and Johannesburg. From these two airports, most camps are roughly an hour to two hours’ drive away. Many lodges also have private air strips.

What to do

Enjoy morning and evening game drives with expert safari guides seeking out the Big 5 and Little 5. In many of the private concessions, you can enjoy additional activities including guided walks, night drives, captivating sundowner drinks, bush dinners and even sleeping in a treehouse beneath the stars.

One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin. He lay on his armour-like back, and if he lifted his head a little he could see his brown belly, slightly domed and divided by arches into stiff sections. The bedding was hardly able to cover it and seemed ready to slide off any moment. His many legs, pitifully thin compared with the size of the rest of him, waved about helplessly as he looked. “What’s happened to me? ” he thought. It wasn’t a dream. His room, a proper human room although a little too small, lay peacefully between its four familiar walls. A collection of textile samples lay spread out on the table – Samsa was a travelling salesman – and above it there hung a picture that he had recently cut out of an illustrated magazine and housed in a nice, gilded frame. It showed a lady fitted out with a fur hat and fur boa who sat upright, raising a heavy fur muff that covered the whole of her lower arm towards the viewer. Gregor then turned to look out the window at the dull weather. Drops of rain could be heard hitting the pane, which made him feel quite sad. “How about if I sleep a little bit longer and forget all this nonsense”, he thought, but that was something he was unable to do because he was used to sleeping on his right, and in his present state couldn’t get into that position. However hard he threw himself onto his right, he always rolled back to where he was. He must have tried it a hundred times, shut his eyes so that he wouldn’t have to look at the floundering legs, and only stopped when he began to feel a mild, dull pain there that he had never felt before. “Oh, God”, he thought, “what a strenuous career it is that I’ve chosen!
