For example, you’ve decided that you have to see the Kruger National Park at least once in your life … which is awesome! But you also don’t know the Park very well and you want to see as many wildlife sightings as possible. Since it’s your first time here, going on safari with a tour operator is probably a good option.
Why, you ask? Well, tour operators here employ FGASA-accredited guides who know the Park inside out, and, as such, know what to look for in order to increase your chances of seeing wildlife. Plus, you’ll get to sit back and keep a lookout for animals while your guide does all the driving!
3. Pair Up
We’re pretty sure you know this but Per Person Sharing rates are always more reasonable than Per Person Single rates. So when planning your safari to the Kruger National Park, why not ask your special someone, your sister, brother or your bestie to join you? It’ll help when travelling on a budget and you’ll have someone there with you to share in all those epic moments!

Alright! So you’ve created your budget, done your research and found a safari company that you’d like to travel with – and it’s Kruger Wildlife Safaris! (Awesome choice, by the way.)
You’ve enquired with them and booked a date for your safari… so what’s next? Well, your budgeting isn’t done yet. There’s still a lot you can do in the months leading up to your Budget Kruger Safari, to ensure that you spend a minimal amount of cash on unnecessary things and more on those stunning souvenirs that you’re going to bring back home for you and your friends and family!
It always helps to remind yourself why you’re doing this and what you have to look forward to when you’re on that Kruger safari (we’re going to help you do that later on in this blog post, so keep reading).
