Why Travel to Kruger Park? by

The Kruger is one of Africa's largest and most famous game parks, with a high density of wildlife, including large numbers of the iconic Big 5, lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and the critically endangered black and white rhino. 

Kruger National Park vs Greater Kruger National Park

We are often asked what is the difference between the two:

The Greater Kruger National Park (GKNP, 180 000 hectares) and the Kruger National Park (KNP) are one, huge, unfenced game reserve. This allows the free movement of game across a combined 2 million hectares of wild bush. 

So what's the difference?

The GKNP is made up of over twenty, privately-owned game reserves. This means that numbers of people allowed, and accommodation offered, is limited, thus providing a more exclusve - and more real - African safari. There is free movement of animals between the KNP and GKNP, as it is unfenced.

Parks in the Greater Kruger National Park include

  • Timbavati
  • Klaserie
  • Thornybush
  • Balule
  • Sabi Sand

Highlights of the Greater Kruger National Park

  • Limited numbers of people are allowed in the area, providing a far less crowded safari experience and giving the visitor the feel of true Africa, unspoilt by too many cars and people
  • With the borders between the Kruger National Park and the GKNP being unfenced, there is free movement of all game, allowing sightings of a huge variety of animals
  • GKNP is next door to the Kruger Park: daytrips into the park are easy, giving you the best of both worlds
  • Walking safaris, game-viewing in safari vehicles and night drives are offered with knowledgeable guides
  • Accommodation in the GKNP is more exclusive, with smaller camps, great service and more luxurious amenities

About Kruger Park Safaris

A wide range of Kruger Park Budget Safari options is available. Below we have broken down the tour types into a rough outline of what's possible for todays Kruger budget traveller.


Kruger Park Camping Safaris

Camping Safaris are ideal for any traveller who likes sleeping under the stars and enjoys active participation in their safari experience.

For the majority of Kruger camping safaris you will be accommodated in spacious walk-in two man dome tents. These are specifically designed to suit the Kruger Park climate and bush environment with mosquito nets and good ventilation.

Some Kruger camping safaris will require you to bring your own sleeping bag, occasionally help with meal preparation or assist with setting up your tent. Ask your African Budget Safaris travel consultant for details.


Kruger Park Overland Camping Safaris

A Kruger overland safari shares the accommodation characteristics of the camping safaris above, with transportation taken care of by Overland truck. A Kruger overland safari is a more team-orientated experience.

If you enjoy travelling in a youthful group and are ready to help out with meals, tents and so forth, as well as forge new friendships whilst on the road, this is the type of Kruger Park safari for you.


Kruger Park Luxury Tented Safaris

If camping out under the night sky sounds romantic but you'd rather not rough it, a luxury tented safari may be the ticket for your trip to the Kruger National Park. These are usually based in one of the Kruger's private game reserves. Tents are usually semi-permanent structures erected on a platform raised above the ground. This affords better game viewing and also helps not to disturb the surrounding bush and animal activity.


Kruger Park Exclusive Lodge Safaris

The Kruger is dotted with private concessions and reserves, each with their own game rangers and lodges. These offer a more intimate and hospitality-focused experience for the traveller in search of something apart from the often large and occasionally busy rest camps.


Kruger Park Fly-in Safaris

The transfer from Johannesburg to the Kruger National Park by road can take anything from six to eight hours. If you would prefer to zip across that gap in one hour and dive straight into the game viewing experience, a Kruger Park Fly-in Safari is the one to go for.


Game Viewing Drives on Kruger Park Safaris

No matter what type of accommodation or safari package you choose, all Kruger Park Safaris are centred around game viewing in this Big Five territory teeming with African wildlife. A typical day on safari in Kruger and the private game reserves in the area starts with an early morning game drive. Early mornings are when many of the wild animals are at their most active so this is an excellent time for sighting wildlife and also for avoiding the midday heat.

Game drives in Kruger Park are generally conducted in open 4x4 safari vehicles although if visitors prefer closed vehicles can be arranged. The afternoon game drives in Kruger Park typically last between three and four hours sometimes running into the evening. The game viewing drives on our Kruger Safaris are conducted by trained and professional safari guides who are knowledgeable about the habitats and wildlife found in this vast game park.


Bush Walks in Kruger Park

Many of the Kruger Safaris, especially the longer packages, include morning bush walks with an armed safari guide. These exhilarating bush walks give you the chance to encounter the flora and fauna up close and appreciate the smaller inhabitants of Kruger Park. On bush walks you also get to track animal movements and identify wildlife activity with your experienced guide. Kruger is home to numerous predators which is why the safari guides are armed to ensure your safety. The bush walks are usually optional, but are highly recommended as an excellent way to get a real feel for the African bush and its fascinating wildlife.
