Kruger Central in South Africa

Walk on the wild side! One of the oldest, largest, and most diverse parks in Africa, Kruger National Park is one of Africa’s top safari destinations, rich with its lion prides, elephant herds and thousands of other animals, against shifting backdrops of savannah, forest, river and mountains.

Various private game reserves bordering or close to Kruger National Park offer excellent wildlife sightings and are ideal for those seeking exclusive, luxurious and diverse safari experiences as in addition to daily game drives, you can enjoy night game drives and exciting bush walks to discover the small wonders of nature. Our favorite among these private reserves include Kapama, Thornybush, Klaserie, Ngala and Timbavati which shares a long, unfenced border with Kruger and is home to the Big Five as well as a wide array of other game including cheetah and occasional wild dogs.
