The Kruger National Park

Arguably the best wildlife destination in Africa.

An Iconic Year Round Safari Destination

The iconic Kruger National park is on of the best wildlife destinations in Africa.

It is home to the famous big five, as well as an abundance of other game.
The kruger park is a year round destination and no time is a bad time to visit.

In winter(May to September) The bush thins out and water becomes scarce, therefore the animals become more concentrated closer to the waterholes making them easier to see.

In summer (October to April) we get hot rainy days that bring the dry bush land to life, with stunning emerald green landscapes.

This brings out the grazers and as a result the predators as well.

The bushveld is also alive with birds, and babies are in abundance at this time of the year.

We at Explore Kruger Safaris make it our mission to help you experience the bushveld and all its animals to the best of our abilities.
