Considering how any times I have been to South Africa with my family I think that you would find it hard to believe that I have never been to a national park, unless you count seeing crocodiles and elephants on the way to my grandmothers house. However I do plan on going to Kruger National park within the next few years as it is one of the top places to visit on my bucket list!
Kruger National Park is one of Africa’s largest and one of the worlds most famous and greatest game reserves ever! If you haven’t heard of it, you’ve been living under a rock for your entire life! Its high density of wild animals includes all of Africa’s iconic safari species – elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, rhino, buffalo, giraffe, hippo and zebra. It’s truly an amazing place to visit and an experience that you will carry with you for the rest of your life.
The good thing about the park is that it is open all year round. Depending on your preference and schedule you can visit the park at any time. However June to September is the best time for Wildlife viewing as although it is winter this is when the park is at it’s driest and animals meet at waterholes. From January to March it is very hot and quiet and seeing as schools are open accommodation is easy to find. In April and May it is rutting-season and you can see animals such as the impala, wildebeest and other species go head to head.
