Luxury safaris in The Kruger

Africa's Most Established & Prestigious National Park

Founded in 1898 by President Paul Kruger, this National Park remains one of the oldest and largest wildlife reserves in the world.

However it’s not just the Kruger’s size or age that has really helped distinguish itself as one of Africa’s premier and consummate National Parks, but its ground-breaking conservation philosophy and practice that has led the way for other wildlife sanctuaries not just in Africa.

And it’s no wonder when you think of the Kruger’s sixteen different habitats, 517 species of bird, and more varieties of mammals, including the Big Five, than any other reserve. So it’s often said, you won’t get a better safari anywhere else.

Lying in the north-eastern region of South Africa and at a size of about four million hectares, the main Kruger National Park is open to all. However, we use only lodges in Private Concessions and Reserves bordering the park such as the Timbavati, Thornybush, and Sabi Sands, so that you can enjoy an exclusive, real safari experience and have the best possible game viewing.

These private reserves make up the Greater Kruger Park (the wildlife is the same throughout) and possess, what is often agreed, as the finest safari lodges and luxury hospitality on the continent.

What to do
  • Game drives and safaris

When to go

April to September are the drier, winter months when game is easier to spot, though the summer months bring lush vegetation and longer days.
