The Kruger National Park is a fantastic all-year destination, and depending on when you visit, your experience will be unique.
The dry winter months (May-October) are great for game viewing as animals tend to converge around water sources, making finding them easier. The bush is also much thinner, helping you spot that elusive leopard!
The summer months (November –April) are much warmer and can be wet at times, but most of the animals give birth during this period so it is your best bet if you are looking for cute baby animal photos. The bush is also very verdant and the birdlife exceptional.
The Greater Kruger Region is South Africa’s largest dedicated wildlife preserve and whether you are after a luxury or budget experience, every need is catered for. In addition to the famous Kruger National Park, the area also has fantastic private reserves including Sabi Sand, Timbavati and Thornybush, all which add something unique and special to the safari experience.
The main reason to come to Kruger is obviously the animal and birdlife and therefore game drives, be they with a ranger or not, are the best way to get out into the bush to experience this magical part of the world. Take a checklist and try to spot as many animals as possible – and remember to keep a sharp eye out for the Big 5!
