We offer tailored and hand-picked Kruger safaris to a select number of private game reserves in the greater Kruger National park. Above all, these reserves are private concessions and offer guests a memorable safari experience in prime big 5 game viewing areas. And while exclusivity is key, our selection of Kruger safaris offers something for everyone. From the price-conscious to budget-busting experiences. I have spent a lot of time getting to know the Kruger first hand. For this reason, I can give you expert advice on making the right choice.

There are now daily direct flights between Kruger and Cape Town. For this reason, it is easy to combine these two iconic South African holiday destinations. View this Kruger safaris itinerary here to see just how easy it is. Flights are also offered directly to Victoria Falls and Vilanculos in Mozambique. Hence, making it easier to take a longer holiday and discover more highlights in Southern Africa.

Why Kruger?

Staying in Kruger National Park offers a distinctive and immersive safari experience. As well as enriched by its expansive landscapes bustling with diverse wildlife. Moreover, the park’s well-developed infrastructure presents a plethora of accommodation choices. Whether humble campsites or opulent lodges, it  accommodates diverse preferences and financial constraints. Furthermore, navigating Kruger’s extensive road network facilitates self-drive escapades. Due to this, visitors have the liberty to encounter emblematic species such as elephants, lions, and rhinos at their preferred tempo.

However, the distinction between the national park and private concessions lies in the safari experience they offer. While Kruger’s regulations require staying on designated roads, private concessions typically grant off-road driving privileges. In effect, guides can track wildlife off the beaten path, increasing the chances of intimate encounters with elusive predators and other animals. Additionally, private concessions often provide exclusive game drives with knowledgeable guides, enhancing the overall safari experience through insights into the area’s ecology and wildlife behavior. All in all, the choice between Kruger and private concessions hinges on your preference for exploration style and wildlife encounters.

How many nights?

We recommend a minimum of 2 nights for your Kruger safari, although 3 – 4 nights are ideal. This allows you ample time to enjoy the daily game drives. Given that, you also get some relaxation and a possible pamper session in during your stay. In addition, it also gives more time to see all the animals as they are free roaming and can cover vast areas.

Further more, we have included a small selection of our favourite Kruger safaris for you to browse below. However we appreciate how overwhelming it can be to select the perfect safari lodge for you, and do encourage you to give us a call on 0207 112 0019 (UK) or email us for some unbiased advice.
