Now don’t get us wrong, surprises are good too (they keep things interesting), so we won’t reveal every detail of your Kruger safari, only the details that will help you prepare for the awesomeness that is to come.
You’ll be packed and prepared for your Kruger camping safari in no time!…but first, a little background on the spectacular, culturally-rich destination that is South Africa.

Tip: While we always encourage our guests to pack a hat and sunglasses for their Kruger safari, if you happen to forget them (nobody’s perfect, right?), the curio shop has got you covered.
On our camping safaris in the Kruger, ablutions are shared. It’s open for use to all of SANParks’ camping guests and is serviced by SANParks. A major plus is that the building where the showers and toilets are located, is just across the road from our campsite.
Now that we’ve gotten all the technical details out of the way, let’s get to the really fun stuff – the actual Kruger safari!

Tip: Have you ever heard that saying by Eleanor Roosevelt that goes, ‘Life is what you make it.’ Well, it’s the same on a Kruger safari. So if there’s one thing you absolutely must do, it’s to expect to have an awesome time. Bring that positive attitude and sense of adventure, and you’re sure to make this a camping safari in the Kruger that you’ll never forget.
Tip: While wildlife sightings are never certain on a Kruger safari, and we can’t guarantee that we’ll find what you’re looking for, if there’s a particular animal that you would like to try and find, it never hurts to let your guide know.

Tip: Appreciate the little things on your Kruger safari. Whether it be to stop and truly admire that rich, multi-coloured sunset or a point in time where you just sit outside your tent and listen to the call of the Kingfisher or the African fish eagle – it’s usually those moments that make your trip all the more worthwhile.
