Kruger Game Reserve

Holidays to Kruger Game Reserve

Holidays in the Kruger Game Reserve, one of the largest reserves in Africa covering an area of 18,989 square kilometres, can be spectacular. It is one of the most diverse national parks and is home to 517 species of birds, 147 species of mammals and 114 species of reptiles. It has nine main gates allowing access to different camps, and is a UNESCO designated area. The Kruger Game Reserve is renowned as one of the best in Africa and Kruger Game Reserve holidays offer unparalleled opportunities for wildlife spotting. The park is an ideal destination for big game spotting as it is home to the big five – elephants, lions, leopards, rhinoceros and buffalo. However, the park can offer more than just big game as it has a range of eco-systems giving it a rich diversity of fauna and flora.

The climate in Kruger is subtropical so Kruger Game Reserve holidays in the dry winter season are best for observing the wildlife. During this period the vegetation is sparse and it is easier to observe the animals as they congregate at the waterholes to drink. Late November and early December is the time when many animals are giving birth so the park is filled with their young. Summer in the park is rainy and although this means the plants are blooming and the park is lush, it does make it harder to spot the wildlife. Autumn is not a popular time of year for big game spotting, but for those who prefer bird spotting it is ideal.

The Kruger Game Reserve is one of the best in Africa due to the fact that it is home to more species of wildlife than any other reserve. It is also home to the endangered Painted Dogs, commonly known as African Wild Dogs, which roam across the park. The park is a self-drive national park, making it possible for tourists to explore the park at their own pace. There are many beautiful lodges and camps in the park at which tourists can stay. Kruger Game Reserve holidays can offer luxury private game lodges with superb cuisine, exceptional game viewing and world-class service.

Kruger Game Reserve holidays offer visitors a range of safaris with experienced trackers and guides. The Original Classic Safari is a four-day safari which includes a Big Five Kruger Safari with experienced guides and an opportunity to camp out under the stars to listen to the sounds of the nocturnal wildlife. The Kruger in Style Safari Package is a seven day safari with stays in specially selected premium and luxury 5-star lodges. Guests are served delicious African food and the accommodation includes a secluded pool and tented lounge. Open safari vehicles are used for the Big Five game drives, and there are also exciting guided walking safaris. The Canvas Dreams Safari Package is a three-day safari which includes bird watching and Big Five game drives, but also allows the guest to experience the luxury of a bygone era.
