  • The Kruger is a large nature reserve under government protection, which is not the case for all reserves. Of course, the area is such (20,000 km2) that we have not been able to explore everything. Because it's about exploring. Animals are waiting for you. They live in their natural environment and sometimes you have to look for long moments to have the chance to see them. We have not had the chance to see lions and leopards but antelopes, zebras, hippos, crocs, buffaloes, rhinos, monkeys, elephants, etc. etc. A word of advice: unless you're initiated, don't go on your first safari alone. Take a safari with one of the many providers that offer it. You will have the explanations of the rangers and especially their savvy eyes to see what we do not necessarily see. If possible, allow several days if you like nature and animals. This is not a zoo!

  • My favourite Kruger Park entry point! The roads are great, Malelane has all the supplies you nerd to stock up for your Kruger adventure. Gate staff are always welcoming and helpful.
  • Terrible experience on the 9th of Feb around 3.30pm. On exit we had alcohol in the vehicle. Our choices were, pay the bribe to the 2 guards on duty , call the ranger and we get a fine , but they did tell us , this could take hours depending on where the ranger was . Throw out all the alcohol before exit . Wonder why they let us in without checking what was in the cooler. Anyway these guys will be encouraging people to litter the park, as people with throw out their evidence before getting to the gate !. After a long day in the park, nobody wants to wait indefinitely at a gate for a ranger. Please be aware of this if u are a day visitor to the park . They hold onto your driver's license while negotiating the bribe and telling u the rules of driving in SA, wish they knew the rules of being decent reputable guards.
