The Kruger National Park is the epitome of the African safari experience. Its high population of wildlife and incredible wildlife diversity is unparalleled elsewhere in the country. The terrain is all-encompassing – from the bushveld in the south peppered with granite hills, the mountains rising from the savannah floor in the east, to the tropical forest that cuts across the north. What better way to experience the African wilderness, than by spending a night in one of the park’s Rest Camps?
Ramble along in your safari vehicle, keeping your eyes peeled for a sign of Africa’s big cats, or tackle the stark wilderness on foot, weaving through the grassland in search of game. All of the country’s most iconic species – elephant, rhino, buffalo, giraffe, lion, cheetah, leopard, and hippo – are present, along with 140 other mammals, and over 500 different species of bird. Hidden hides bring you closer to the wildlife than ever before, as do the seemingly endless eco-trails.
Located within the park, the rest camps are witness to an endless procession of animals that move through and past the camps. They gather at the rivers to quench their thirst, or mark dusk by setting off on a hunt. Venture on day and night drive to watch the park’s animals stir from their dens and roam the plains.
