Safari? Kruger National Park in South Africa
Kruger National Park is one of the largest game reserves in Africa. It covers an area of 19,633 square kilometres in the provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga in northeastern South Africa. It is also known to be the most exciting African safari destination!!
Yup, been there, done that!!!! It is as fun as they say it is.
How does it work?
First of all, look online for the best package for you. Depending on how many you are, whether a big group of a small group, you could always find the best package that matches what you’re looking for. If you seek adventure and at your own personal risk, you could always rent a car, camp yourself there and get lost in the jungle. I don’t think its too dangerous ’cause I’ve seen a lot of people who had done it.
In our case, we were 12 people, looked for Safari that had guides who guided us throughout our whole stay. Now, if you’re looking to do it yourself I do not have enough information on the matter. However, this is what we did..
Step 1. Booked round trip to and back from Johannesburg.
Step 2. Searched private vacation packages. The package we found included:
A) Pickup at Johannesburg airport, 5 hours drive to the park
B) Transportation back to Johannesburg Airport.
C) Food and all meals were included.
D) Safari rides which they call “Gaming” with guides.
Step 3. Packed, don’t forget your anti-insects spray especially if you’re allergic to insects. Take your camera everything is worth taking a picture of, and finally they advised to take light colored clothing not to attract insects (“Dark colours do attract the biters.”) and also to avoid attracting them, do not wear any perfume.
Step 4. ENJOY.
PS. Never tease or corner wild animals, this may cause an unpredictable response and a potentially dangerous reaction. We’ve been followed by an elephant.. and by followed i mean it started running after us. True story :p
.. Feel free to ask should you have any questions or looking for further details xx
Hey there, I’m going to SA soon and looking for some advise, what was your exact itinerary? (how many days have u spent at each place and what was your method of transportation in-between places?). Also, is it worth spending sometime at Johannesburg?
Hi Aleen, my itinerary was Johannesburg, Kruger Park, Capetown.
A car/bus from Joberg to Safari, then a flight from JoBerg to Capetown.
