The Kruger National Park is one of South Africa’s favourite travel destinations. Featuring dramatic savannah and forest scenery, the “Huge Five” animals, and a wealth of wildlife, the Kruger Park offers a unique safari experience under the African sun. A Kruger Park safari is an unforgettable experience for young and ancient, and gives visitors the opportunity to appreciate some of nature’s greatest wonders. It is no surprise that the Kruger National Park is a world-well-known wildlife destination, and ranked as one of Africa’s top safari destinations.

Mpumalanga is the northernmost province of South Africa, and a leading destination for safari travel. It is within the borders of this province that the Kruger Park is found. The park stretches across a massive area nearly two-million hectares in diameter. The region also houses the Sabi Sands game reserve and the Timbavati reserve. Whilst these are both private game reserves, the Kruger Park is a national reserve with some private parks within its borders.

The Kruger Park was established in 1898 as a sanctuary for protecting wildlife from extinction due to hunting. Today, the park is home to thousands of species, including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and trees.

Mpumalaga safari travel can be loved at many luxurious game lodges in and around the Kruger National Park. The reserve was initially made for self-catering safari travel. But, modern safari lodges have made opulent settings in which guests can delight in the best South African safari experiences in luxury.

The Huge Five

This well-known phrase refers to five animals found in Africa, and which are synonymous with authentic safari travel. They are the lion, rhino, elephant, leopard and buffalo. These animals are part of the ‘Huge Five’ because they were the animals that were most hard to hunt on foot, and they have been well-known since the earliest safaris in history. Whilst people no longer hunt these creatures, the fascination with these animals remains. The Huge Five are a must-see for anyone taking an Mpumalanga safari tour or Kruger Park safari.

Luxury Mpumalanga safari accommodation

5-Star accommodation available at the Kruger Park, and other Mpumalanga safari lodges, is the very definition of luxury. Much of the decor aims to recreate the mixture of colonial and African influences during the fantastic safari hunting excursions of the 1800s. Cuisine and facilities are top-class, and luxury amenities enable guests to unwind in serene settings away from the stresses of city life.

Delight in a relaxing bubble bath amid the untamed wilderness of the African savannah, as the setting sun lays delicate shadows across the landscape. Rejuvenate with various spa treatments on offer at selected game lodges. Unwind with refreshing sundowners and an evening game drive, before dining under the stars at a traditional “boma braai”, an African-style barbeque featuring traditional cuisine. Sample delicacies such as kudu casserole and marinated springbok steaks.

Game-viewing activities at the Kruger Park and other top Mpumalanga game reserves

Game lodges offer guests a range of activities in the Kruger National Park and other Mpumalanga game parks. Without a doubt, the number one activity among guests is morning and evening game drives. Open-topped 4×4 vehicles take guests off-road into the bush, as accompanying rangers track the location of the game to find the Huge Five and other exotic wildlife.

Guided bush walks and game-spotting from a “hide” (a type of game-viewing bunker) are also extremely well loved activities during Mpumalanga safari travel. These experiences, too, are led by a ranger, and are brilliant opportunities for viewing smaller game. The habitats of the larger animals should always be respected, and thus are not visited during bush walks.

Your luxury Kruger Park safari awaits

A visit to a luxury game lodge in Mpumulanga is an experience of a lifetime. It is no wonder that tourists from around the world flock to the Kruger National Park and other private reserves in South Africa:
