The Kruger National Park is all about the EXPERIENCE and that is what makes it one of Africa’s finest tourist destinations. No matter what type of Kruger Park safari you choose, they are all centered around game viewing, whether you are up before sunrise or tracking nocturnal animals with searchlights, game drives in the African bush are an exhilarating experience. There is always an air of anticipation as you head out into the wild in a 4×4 safari vehicle, no fences or man-made structures, the bush is wild and breathtakingly beautiful, there are wide open plains with zebra, wildebeest and impala, water holes teeming with birdlife, herds of buffalo and elephants.
You might get close to a nervous giraffe getting down to drink water or see a rhino chase a lion, or young hyena cubs emerge from their den, you never quite know what you are about to discover, and no two days are ever the same.
Kruger National Park Safaris
The major difference between the private reserves and the Kruger National Park is that off-road driving is forbidden in the Kruger Park, but there are 2302 km of tarred and gravel roads available for game driving, the other rule pertaining to game viewing vehicles is that only closed vehicles are permitted in the Kruger Park but many tour companies have custom built game viewers with a canvas roof and open sides, which are great for photography. The private reserves offer open vehicle game viewers and there is usually a tracker that sits on the front left side of the Land Rover to read spoor, these vehicles are also in radio contact with each other which greatly increases your chances of finding the animals that you most want to see and the vehicles may leave the roads to follow animals into the bush which provide wonderful close up sightings.
