Kruger National Park Day Tours, Attractions & Excursions

Planning a trip to Kruger National Park? Here, your love for the African wildlife will reach new heights. Known as ‘the heart of the Lowveld’ it is also home to the Big 5, baobabs and marula trees, with endless miles of open fields, natural ponds and vast rivers. The Kruger Park alludes to a soothing and untouched atmosphere which provides visitors an authentic experience of the African wilderness.

Kruger-Park-Lion

The Kruger National Park, South Africa lies across the eastern regions of the provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga. Covering an area of roughly 20,000 square kilometres, it is one of the largest game reserves in the African continent. Inside the park, the vast variety of interconnected roads makes it extremely accessible and also offers an abundance of accommodation – both budget and luxurious!

Things To Do In Kruger National Park

The best way to explore the Kruger Park is behind your own steering wheel – there is no better feeling than being one of the first to arrive at the Kruger gate before sunrise, with high hopes of seeing a leopard jumping out of a tree to hunt for breakfast!

The park also offers various restaurants to grab lunch, gift shops to shop for souvenirs, as well as a handful of picnic sites and waterhole look-outs. What better way to enjoy the crisp and fresh bushveldt air and beautiful scenery. Just outside the Kruger National Park also awaits a few adventurous activities you can try out:

  • Go swing a few golf balls at Kruger Park Lodge in Hazyview. The golf course has a real ‘bushveld atmosphere’ with beautiful water features. Don’t be surprised if you bump into a few hippos or impalas roaming free!
  • Visit the Masorini Village Museum situated at the Phalaborwa Gate to get a glimpse of the hunter-gathering way of life during the Stone Age.
  • Get your adrenaline fix at the ‘Big Swing’ in Graskop, a picturesque small town of Mpumalanga, and swing across the third largest gorge in the world!

Kruger National Park Tours

The Kruger National Park offers visitors a variety of guided tours, for a classic safari experience. Kruger park tours include morning trips, afternoon drives, night rides or a full day adventure with a variety of vehicles and packages to choose from.

Kruger-Safari

The Kruger Safari Tours can be done in a large group at very affordable prices. Or, if you feel like splashing out, there are also private and exclusive tours that include food and drinks at higher rates. The Kruger National Park Full-Day Game drive is very popular among daily visitors. On the other hand,  luxury safaris are for more sophisticated guests who enjoy luxurious accommodation, while a well thought out Kruger Package Tour can provide an excellent all-round experience.
