Love and proud our Kruger National Park. Wish I could come more often and stay longer. With all rain it is even more beautiful.

We got a flight to the Nelspruit airport then we rent a car and drove until Mjejane reserve. We stayed there where we could see all the animals including lions. It's not a big reserve and you cannot drive by yourself there. Leaving mjejane for a day we drove in Malelane, that is 20 minutes from there. We could drive... More

We've been to the Kruger Park many times over the past 12 years, but never saw the public ablutions in such a poor state. All they way from Lower Sabie, Nkhulu picnic spot to Skukuza, the ablutions were absolutely disgusting and reeking of urine! Yet at every stop there's a lady 'cleaning' and giving you the hairy eye ball for... More

I traveled with four others from the U.S., and this was my first trip to Africa. I may never get back--and if I don't, Kruger National Park (among other amazing attractions) will stay with me the rest of my life. We saw the Big Five and so much more. You can't travel through the park and fail to be touched... More

I am from Wales and stayed here with my boyfriend from Johannesburg. Absolutely loved it!! We stayed in a chalet right on the river where all the rhinos etc could be seen. We drove ourselves around the park and managed to see everything. Would 100% return!

This was a trip of a lifetime. Could not ask for anything better when it comes to seeing animals in the wild. We were there for 3 days and it was raining most of the time. However, we were lucky to see 4 of the big 5 (thanks to our awesome guide from Nhongo safari). Unfortunately, Rhino poaching has become... More

Everyone who loves animals must go to this park. The scenery and all the wild animals are such an experience that you don't want to miss.

Impressive nature park with real possibility to see all of the big 5. Even the leopard!! Comfortable roads throughout the park while one would expect to have more 'natural' roads. But hey, it is not a real safari and safety first! Together with the wildlife, nice weather and a great guide, Worthwhile the trip.

A tremendous trip well organised with no pressure This was our first Safari so before we got there Andy had to answer loads of questions, as we thought of one we sent an email, Andy responded quickly to each email. We were picked up from johannesburg and taken on a scenic tour down towards the Kruger stopping at various points... More
