PLACES TO GO IN Kruger National Park & Adjoining Reserves

For a more authentic wildlife experience, the private game reserves, where visitor numbers are limited, and the less visited Northern section of the park may be preferable. There are also some private concessions within the park itself which create another interesting possibility. Call our friendly consultants to discuss what’s possible for you.



WHEN IS THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO GO?

The Kruger region can be visited at any time but the best time to visit Kruger is in the dry months from May to October when water is scarce, the bush thinner and grass shorter making the wildlife easier to see and locate. Kruger can get heavy rain and is quite hot between November and February.
