Read our Frequently Asked Questions

The Kruger National Park is the best known game reserve in Africa and is one of Africa’s top attractions. Covering an area the size of a small country, if you’re going to see it all, you’ll need to hire a car.

There are many sights to see from the different stations around the park which includes 14 different ecozones. The number of species and animals is enormous and you’ll need to spend a good number of days here to enjoy it to the full. Overnight you can stay in a range of accommodation from luxury lodges to tents.
