Kruger Park Region Information
One of the Greatest Wildlife Attractions in the World!
Johannesburg is the centre of many wildlife and nature tourism activities. Of all these, however, the Kruger Park is widely recognised as one of the greatest wildlife attractions in the world, and, regardless of the length of your stay, you will leave with a new love for Africa and its remarkable wildlife. The Kruger Parks' relatively close proximity to Johannesburg makes the city an ideal starting point, and with the newly established Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport, getting there has never been easier. This makes Joburg the gateway city to Kruger, and this is why we cover it on My Destination Johannesburg.
There are dozens of accommodation options available in the reserve - you can find everything from rustic campsites to 5 star luxury lodges dotted throughout, each of which offers a unique experience. There are a number of activities available from each of the rest camps within the reserve, including guided walking trails, day drives, and the always-popular night drives. And - there are also plenty of One of the main draw-cards of the Kruger Park is that it’s still highly cost-effective. Whereas the exclusive private parks found in and around the area offer high-end safari experiences at a significant premium, the Kruger Park allows you to do things your own way. It’s largely self-catering, with a small selection of strategically placed restaurants when you don’t feel like cooking.
And perhaps most importantly, you’re free to experience the park at your own pace, rather than at that of a pre-organised safari.
To our knowledge, we are the only website in the world to provide Virtual Tours of every single camp and picnic site in the Kruger National Park. Our approach is to give you the opportunity to Look Before book; i.e. look at the multimedia and information on our site, and then move across to the Kruger Park website (see below) to finalize your trip.
South African National Parks have an excellent website full of all the information that you need in order to plan your trip. We don't believe in repeating that information here, so we simply give you all the links you should need.
