Bush walks in Kruger

A guided bush walk in the Kruger is a great way to experience nature up close. One gets to learn more about the finer elements of the bush not normally seen from a vehicle; from trees and flowers, insects and spiders to tracks and sign, and much more, not to mention the excitement of viewing animals on foot in their natural environment. There are various walks to choose from. A must do!

  • Morning walk
  • Sunset walk
  • Full day walk

Guided game drives in Kruger

If abundant sightings of game is what you’re after, guided game drives in an open game viewer is the way to go. A knowledgeable Kruger Park Guide will interpret the bush for you and what’s more, he/she has access to no-entry roads not normally travelled by the general public (as well as being up to date with daily sightings in the area!). The game drive times are planned around sunrise and sunset, peak activity time for animals. Great for animal enthusiasts!

  • A morning drive
  • A night safari
  • A full day drive

Mountain bike Trails in Kruger

Riding one of the Mountain Bike Trails is a great way to see the Kruger. An activity for the more fit and adventurous, its an enviable physical achievement with a 13km, 20km and 30km route to choose from. Although the routes are technically undemanding, one has to be relatively fit to enjoy the trails to their fullest. Bikes and helmets are provided by the Park. We love this!

Self-drive game viewing in Kruger

This is a great way to really experience the Kruger Park - pack your own snacks or order a picnic basket from The Hat & Creek Restaurant to enjoy at one of the rest camps or picnic sites. Explore the Kruger Park in your own company and at your leisure. Take along your reference books and binoculars and learn more about the birds and animals in the area. Ideal for families!
