Lying in the heart of the Lowveld is a wildlife sanctuary like no other, its atmosphere so unique that it allows those who enter its vastness to immerse themselves in the unpredictability and endless wilderness that is the true quality of Africa. The Kruger is a self-drive destination, although there are guided tour operators, with an excellent infrastructure that includes picnic sites, rest camps, waterholes and hides. The largest game reserve in South Africa, the Kruger National Park.
Game drives are what the Kruger National Park is all about. If you're on safari then the highlight to any day is venturing out on the back of an off-road vehicle, binoculars clutched in one hand whilst the other hangs on for all you're worth to the constantly rolling vehicle as it makes its way through the bush in hot pursuit of the latest pride of lions, sighted feeding on a kill just over the rise
Bush walks can last up to four hours and stops are made to allow replenishment and a chance to take in the beauty of an area. Nothing can possibly beat the heart stopping excitement of tracking rhino, elephant and lion on foot through the heat of the bush. But it's also one of the most incredible ways to learn about the fragility of the ecosystems of the Kruger and to see the smaller and exciting, animals and insects of the park.
