Kruger National Park Tours and Travel Guide
Many who visit Kruger National Park describe it as a “sublime wildlife experience”. The seventh biggest game reserve in Africa, it ranks with the best in Africa and is the flagship of South Africa’s national parks.
Its atmosphere is so unique that it allows those who enter its vastness to immerse themselves in the unpredictability and endless wilderness that is the true quality of Africa. The park has more species of large mammals than any other African game reserve (147 species).
For over 100 years, this giant of the safari world has been enthralling people young and old. I only wish I was around in 1923 when the first tourists were allowed into Kruger… Imagine seeing that wilderness for the first time?! Pity there were no selfies back then.

Kruger National Park is on the north-eastern boundary of South Africa. It shares a border with Mozambique and Zimbabwe. An easy five-hour drive from Johannesburg where the majority of international flights land, it’s easy to get to the southern part of Kruger, the best and most famous game-viewing area. Flying to the various airports surrounding the park is your best bet to get into the action immediately. Daily flights between Johannesburg and Cape Town travel between:
- Nelspruit/Kruger International Airport (southern Kruger)
- Skukuza Airport (southern Kruger)
- Hoedspruit/Eastgate Airport (central Kruger)
- Hendrik Van Eck Airport (northern Kruger)
