Kruger National Park was established in 1898 to protect the wildlife of South Africa and it is located about a 6 hour drive from Johannesburg. Kruger is home to an impressive number of species and you will have a huge chance to see the Big 5, which are lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo. Just keep in mind that you might not see or only get a fleeting glance of the ever-elusive leopard.

It is the largest game reserve in South Africa, approximately the same size as Israel.

If this is your first time on safari, Kruger National Park is a great place to start, due to the high density of wildlife and the well-managed infrastructure. All the camps are fenced, so you need not be afraid of any unsuspected encounters with predators when you walk around the campsite.

Spend the evenings under the African stars next to a crackling fire and listen to the sounds of the bush. Experience the thrill of hearing a lion roar in the distance or listen for the characteristic call of a hyena.

After an early wake up, a day full of new impressions and tired eyes from constantly scanning the bush to find animals, you will sleep like a baby when darkness falls.

 

Best months to visit: May - June - July - August - September
