Get the Most Out of Your Kruger Park Safari
A Kruger Park safari is an incredible adventure – it is one of those holidays of which the memories will stay with you for life. As with most impressive and life-changing experiences, it takes a bit of research and planning to make sure that you get the absolute most out of it. This is certainly the type of opportunity that you want to get the most out of.
Here are a few tips to help you plan a Kruger Park safari that eclipses all other holidays:
Choose the Best Time to Visit
With mild weather all-year-round, you can plan your Kruger Park safari whenever it suits you. The summer months (October to March) are their wet season, and the landscape is lush and green. The winter months (April to September) are cooler and drier. Less vegetation means it is easier to spot the wildlife roaming the area. Towards the end of winter, as water becomes scarce, the animals also tend to hang around the water holes, making them easier to find.
There is no reason to splurge on expensive hiking gear. You do, however, want to be comfortable on your Kruger Park safari. Make sure you have comfortable shoes, light cotton clothing in neutral colours, a hat and sunscreen for protection against the sun, and some long-sleeve shirts and trousers for the cooler evenings. You would also want sunglasses, a good camera, and an extra battery pack and/or charger.
Have Your Transfers Sorted
While the roads are in good condition, you still have to travel a couple of hours between Johannesburg and the reserve. You could rent a car, but it is much more convenient to simply book a professional transfer that will take you straight to your destination. Kruger Park Shuttle offers daily, luxury business-class road shuttle services between O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg and the reserve, allowing you to relax in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle on your journey there. You can also use their services to book private fly-in charters and chauffeur-driven transfers.
Stay a While
The Kruger National Park is huge and there are a lot of incredible sights to see. Also remember that you might be tired after a long journey to get there. So, if you are booking a safari, consider staying at least a couple of days – a minimum of three or four nights is recommended.
Plan Your Itinerary
As mentioned, there is a lot to see – from the famous Big Five, to hundreds of species of birds and breathtaking landscapes, such as God’s Window and the Blyde River Canyon, as well as sanctuaries, such as the Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre or the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre. Kruger Park Shuttle offers a range of multi-day safari packages that will allow you to experience a variety of incredible activities and sight-seeing opportunities in a relaxed atmosphere. You simply sit back and enjoy.
