Going on safari to Kruger National Park and Mpumalanga in South Africa

Kruger National Park promises an incredible wildlife and natural experience.

Here's what you can expect during your safari:

Wildlife Encounters:

Kruger National Park is one of Africa's premier wildlife reserves, known for its diverse and abundant animal population. You can expect to see the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhinoceros) along with a wide variety of other mammals, birds, and reptiles.

Game Drives:

Your safari will likely include multiple game drives. These are typically early morning and late afternoon to maximize your chances of spotting wildlife when they are most active. Knowledgeable guides will take you through the park, explaining the behaviour and biology of the animals you encounter.

Scenic Landscapes:

The Kruger region is not just about wildlife; it also offers stunning landscapes. You'll see vast savannahs, riverine forests, and rolling hills, providing excellent photographic opportunities.


Kruger is a birdwatcher's paradise with over 500 bird species, including colourful kingfishers, eagles, vultures, and more. Keep an eye out for rare and beautiful species.

Cultural Experiences:

In addition to wildlife, you may have the chance to learn about the local culture and traditions of the indigenous people in the region. Some tours include visits to local villages or cultural centres.


You'll have various accommodation options, ranging from rustic campsites to luxurious lodges. Many lodges offer a comfortable and intimate safari experience with excellent facilities and meals.

Night Drives:

Some safaris offer night drives, providing a unique opportunity to spot nocturnal animals like leopards, hyenas, and bushbabies. These guided drives use spotlights to illuminate wildlife without disturbing them.

Bush Walks:

Depending on your safari package, you may have the opportunity to go on guided bush walks. These walks offer a close-up view of the smaller flora and fauna and provide a different perspective on the ecosystem.

Sunsets and Stargazing:

The African skies are renowned for their breathtaking sunsets and starry nights. Many safari lodges offer opportunities for sundowners and stargazing sessions.

Conservation Education:

Guides often provide insights into the conservation efforts in the park, including the challenges facing wildlife and the park's role in preserving biodiversity.

Local Cuisine:

You'll have the chance to savour delicious South African cuisine, which often includes game meats like impala or kudu. Try traditional dishes like boerewors (sausages) and bobotie (a spiced meat dish).


While safari days can be intense, you'll also have downtime to relax, swim in pools, or simply enjoy the natural surroundings at your accommodation.

Remember to pack appropriate clothing for varying weather conditions, including lightweight clothing for hot days, warm clothing for chilly evenings, and comfortable shoes for walking. Don't forget your binoculars and a good camera to capture the incredible wildlife and landscapes you'll encounter during your safari in Kruger National Park and Mpumalanga.
