66 The Best Safari Experience
The magnificent Kruger Lowveld region prides itself on being the Outdoor Capital of South Africa, with more than 100 different activities, all within 100 km.
A high number of visitors flock to the Kruger Lowveld, especially to visit the iconic Kruger National Park and the surrounding private game reserves.
Very few places on Earth can beat the unspoiled, natural beauty, expansive vistas, and diversity of the Kruger National Park. Covering an area of close to 20,000 km², and extending 360 km from north to south, the park is the flagship of the national parks in South Africa, and is considered one of the largest and most diverse wildlife reserves on the African continent.
With an extensive and excellent road network, most visitors can explore the park on their own easily and safely.
For the not so adventurous, as well as safari novices, guided tours on open safari vehicles are available. They are also available for visitors staying outside the park. For the more outdoorsy types, wilderness trails, backpack trails, and a guided 4×4 trail along the entire eastern boundary of the park are available.
The private game lodges in the Kruger Lowveld region are world-class. They are situated primarily within the worldrenowned private game reserves along the western boundary of the Kruger National Park, with some inside the Kruger National Park itself. While many of them are award-winners in the five-star luxury category, these lodges offer a variety of accommodation options to suit whatever guests are looking for in a safari holiday.
A visit to one of these private game lodges in the Sabi Sand, Timbavati, Thornybush, Klaserie, or Manyeleti reserves, or within the Kruger National Park, is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It cannot be compared to most other private safari experiences in the country – the game viewing is completely authentic as the reserves are vast and unfenced; guides and trackers are extremely skilled and knowledgeable. Add to this the extraordinary hospitality, and you have a recipe for meaningful memories that will stay with you forever.
Safari and bush lodge getaways are not only about exploring nature and coming face-to-face with the wildlife of Africa, they are also about sitting back, putting your feet up, enjoying fantastic food and service, and taking the time to unwind from the stresses and worries of everyday life.
