With mountains, bush plains and expansive tropical forests, the African wilderness is all packed into the large area of the Kruger National Park. Hundreds of animals make this naturally abundant place their home. A tour of the park is an opportunity to go back in time, to a place where all living things roam wild and free.

Established in 1926, Kruger is Africa’s most famous park. But with so much space, you’ll feel like it’s just you and the animals! Choose between a private, curated group tour and a classic safari. Both are fantastic!

Best time to go

Kruger National Park is a great all-year-round destination. Summer, spring and autumn are all great times to go, with minimal rainfall and hot, pleasant days. Winter is Kruger’s dry season, making it even better for those who don’t want any chance of rain. This is during the April to September period.

Environmental safety on Kruger Safari Tours

Kruger Safaris are carefully set up to impact minimally on the surrounding wildlife. Vehicles drive slowly and are always under the control of a licensed, professional guide with a full understanding of animal behaviors. This way, both the animals and you are safe and happy.

Your guide will go over some basic rules before you start your tour. These include not making very loud noises or trying to excite or scare the animals, and keeping your personal belongings and rubbish in the vehicle. These ensure the safety and wellbeing of everyone involved.

3-Day Kruger Safari from Johannesburg

Take a 3-day journey through the magnificent Kruger National Park on the search for the Big 5. Open vehicle safari’s are the order of the day, and heading back to a luxury hotel to fall asleep to the sound of the bush is how the days will end.

Day 1 starts with you departing from Johannesburg to Kruger International Airport, and heading to the park. Once you are there, you will be able to take an afternoon safari, before making your way to your hotel for dinner and your overnight stay.

Day 2 starts with breakfast and then a full-day game safari. Your very knowledgeable guide will take you around the park, helping to find all the big game, birds and flora found throughout the park. You will then stop to buy lunch, before doing the afternoon safari, and then making your way back to the hotel for dinner and a good night’s rest.

Day 3 begins with breakfast and maybe an early morning safari or some relaxation time. You will then be transported back to Johannesburg or Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport.

What we liked: 3 whole days of fun, and you don’t have to worry about getting there.

    Wonderful experience…only regret was with our 3day/2 night package we arrived at the treehouse area after dark and only had 1 hour in the morning to see the the sight. We expected 2 nights I. The treehouses so would have had time to see the aremin the light.

    Excellent hotel (right next to Kruger Gate entrance to park) and terrific tour guide Andrew! 3 days of high-quality safari: we saw the big five all in the same day.
