Safaris in Kruger National Park

Experience the thrill of the wild in Kruger National Park, South Africa’s premier safari destination, where each day reveals the natural beauty of the African bush.

Kruger National Park

Greater Kruger is the size of a small country and consists of the Kruger National Park and various private game reserves that surround it. There are no fences so wildlife can roam freely throughout.

Southern areas are the most popular due to easier access and excellent wildlife viewing options. Further north is less busy and is home to a large elephant population.

Sabi Sands Game Reserve

Sabi Sands Game Reserve, nestled on the southwestern border of Kruger National Park, is a wildlife haven renowned for its intimate encounters with Africa’s iconic species. Famous for its luxurious lodges, such as Arathusa and Elephant Plains Lodge that offer unrivalled game viewing, Sabi Sands is an exclusive Kruger safari experience.

With its  luxurious tented camps, such as MCH Camp and Garonga, Makalali invites guests to discover the untamed beauty of the African bush in a pristine setting.

Timbavati Game Reserve

Timbavati Game Reserve is a wilderness sanctuary offering untamed landscapes and abundant wildlife. Renowned for its unique white lions, Timbavati offers a wonderful safari experience with intimate accommodation, like Bateleur Safari Lodge which, overlooks a riverbed and seasonal waterhole, attracting nyala, warthog, bushbuck, elephant and  buffalo.

Klaserie Nature Reserve

Klaserie invites adventurers to explore its vast wilderness. Unspoiled and teeming with wildlife, Klaserie offers an authentic Kruger safari experience, where tented camps, such as nThambo, seamlessly blend luxury with nature, promising unforgettable encounters with Africa’s iconic animals.
