Kruger National Park Luxury Holidays


Choose the legendary Kruger National Park region for a luxury safari adventure of a lifetime. The National Park and the surrounding private game reserves combine to form the Greater Kruger Park, renowned for wildlife, nature experiences and luxury vacation options. There are no limits to your game experience here just as there are no fences restricting the movement of game between the Kruger National Park and the adjacent reserves. 

You, of course, want to get up close to Africa’s Big Five, the lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant and you will in this region as there is an abundance of these animals to be spotted roaming wild through the bush and gathering at the waterholes at sunset and sunrise to drink their fill.

Choose from luxury safari accommodation options in this area all offering a bespoke experience to discerning guests. Rise with the African sun and head into the bush on morning game drives, you will spot many animals up and about in the cooler part of the day. These early morning bush excursions normally end with a picnic in the wild or a scrumptious breakfast back at your luxury lodge.

As the day heats up, follow the lead of the animals in the park, by finding a shady spot around the pool or on the deck and relax into the tranquillity of the African bush. This is also a great time to indulge in luxury spa treatments or retreat to your room with a good book. Nearing the end of the afternoon, take another trip on one of the many well laid out roads to remote waterholes to find lions, hippos and buck just waiting for the day to end.

All of the luxury lodges in the Greater Kruger Park will spoil you with fine dining cuisine, great wines and superlative service promising that your African safari will go down as an all time favourite vacation memory. The combination of wildness and luxury ensure that this prime safari destination is a favoured destination for honeymooners and those looking to create romantic moments; it is also a great family destination offering the opportunity to get back to nature and learn more about the magnificent animal kingdom on display here.

We recommend that you extend your stay be exploring the other attractions of the beautiful Mpumalanga province. Head through mountain passes, through lush valleys, over broad rivers and into forests in your quest for authentic African experiences. The Panorama Route, through the rugged mountain range of the northern Drakensberg and down onto the open plains of the Lowveld, is a great way of seeing the region. Stop off in the charming historic towns of Pilgrim’s Rest and Sabie before heading to the Mac Mac Falls for a swim in crystal-clear rock pools. Discover the 33km long Blyde River Canyon in the Blyderivierspoort Nature Reserve, this ancient gorge is filled with bizarre rock formations shaped by erosive forces over millions of years.

The Big Five experience, luxury accommodation, scenic wonders and African adventure all add up to an irresistible invitation to the Greater Kruger Park region of South Africa, contact Southern Africa Travel today.

The Kruger National Park is best known for:

The Big Five
The first sighting of one of Africa’s mighty predators will stay with you forever. The lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard all strut their stuff in the Greater Kruger Park as do hundreds of species of birds, reptiles and amphibians. You will be awestruck by these beautiful creatures of the wild.

The Panorama Route
Take the Panorama Route to view the dramatic landscapes of Mpumalanga, not only does this route wind its way through the heritage towns of the region and take you through breathtaking passes, close to exquisite waterfalls and unusual rock formations in the Blyde River Canyon, it also offers some of the best outdoor adventures in this part of the world.

Off the Beaten Track:

Take to the air in a Hot Air Balloon
View the majestic animals of the Greater Kruger Park from the air in a luxury hot air balloon trip. Float silently over the bush beneath for a different perspective on the region before gently landing for a picnic in the bush.

Head underground
Venture into the Sudwala Caves, the oldest known caves in the world, in the Drakensberg escarpment. The dolomite rocks prove that a warm shallow in-land sea once covered this area and fossils of the first types of oxygen producing plants on earth were discovered here.

Track wildlife on foot
Head into the Kruger National Park on foot for closer contact with the wilderness and the game. You will be accompanied by an experienced and armed game ranger for your safety but this experience will top all others. Look out for Bushman paintings, lion prides, birds, black and white rhino and other small game that are often overlooked when on a game drive.
