Safaris in South Africa

KwaZulu Natal offers visitors a more subtropical feel with wildlife reserves along the coast.

Kruger National Park

The largest and best known wildlife reserve in South Africa is a large swathe of land running for 350km along the borders of Mozambique and Zimbabwe.

With over a million visitors a year, Kruger can seem extremely busy at times; offering a somewhat poor safari experience for the many self-drive tourists making their way along the sealed roads, from one large rest camp to another.

What to see where while driving around Kruger National Park.

For a better quality of wildlife safari in South Africa, check-out the lesser visited Kruger Private Reserves to the west.

Adventurous self-drivers can also escape the crowds on the back road loops of Kruger Park Central.

Kruger Park South may have a larger density of wildlife, but there's plenty of human life here too.

Kruger Park North may be low on visitors but it's for a reason; it tends to be less reliable for wildlife viewing.

Kruger National Park:
Truly the flagship of the South African national parks, Kruger is home to an impressive number of species.

Madikwe Game Reserve:
The Big 5 is represented in the park and you are likely to spot a lion, leopard, elephant, rhino or buffalo during your stay. The park offers a number of luxurious lodges as well as community lodges in a malaria-free zone.

Mpumalanga Tourism:
Mpumalanga lies in the east of South Africa, north of KwaZulu-Natal; bordering Swaziland and Mozambique.
