Dear Aussies: Why You, Too, Should Travel to Kruger National Park

May 27, 2023

You live for the holidays, ay? And now that they’re fast coming up, you’re thinking, what's the next big thing when it comes to holiday destinations? Well, mate, Aussies are flocking to South Africa’s Big 5 mecca for a safari break, and you don't want to miss out on the fun! Here’s why you, too, should travel to Kruger National Park

Kruger National Park beckons you for a slow-paced holiday 

Kruger’s a Fair Dinkum Safari Experience

So, you’ve got those leave days banked, and you’re ready for a well-deserved break. Good onya! You deserve it. And there’s nowhere better on Earth to kick back and have a good rest than sunny South Africa’s safari haven, Kruger National Park. Time seems to slow down when you’re on safari. With long days and plenty of time to spend as you please. 

We defo recommend you stay at the private game reserves in the Greater Kruger National Park. These are basically little exclusive pockets that still have access to all the wildlife (unfenced) but where you get the VIP treatment. 

This means there are no day visitors, the number of game drive vehicles out at a time is limited, your guide can drive off-road to get a close-up of the wildlife, and you can stay out after dark for a night safari. Oh, and not to mention exciting activities like walking safaris!

Why Travel to Kruger National Park?

Just picture a leisurely day of safari activities, lounging by the pool, and sipping on an ice-cold tinny, ending the day with sharing stories around the bush telly and staring at the glittering night sky. 

You’ll have heaps of fun in Kruger. Here’s why it’s a favourite holiday destination.

It’s a Year-Round Destination

Worried your holiday won’t match up with the best time to go on safari? Don’t worry! The good news is that Kruger is really a year-round destination and each season brings its own highlights.

Incredible Wildlife Sightings

Kruger has one of the highest wildlife densities in Africa. Of course, there’s the famous Big 5 you can’t wait to see in real life! But there are so many more fascinating species to gawk at…but that’s enough to fill a whole other blog! 

Great for Families

Travelling with your relos? It can be tricky to find a destination that ticks all the boxes so everyone’s having a good time and not getting into each other’s hair! The great news is that Kruger is perfect for families. The little ankle biters can be whisked off on an eventful day learning more about the bush with age-appropriate activities while you and the missus can get some quality time alone.

Easy to Get to (via Johannesburg)

Take it easy, mate. You’re on holiday. No need to rush around in the airport to make connecting flights and juggle different transfers. You’d be surprised how easy it is to travel to Kruger. Simply get a flight to Johannesburg International Airport! 

Plus, there are daily flights from the airport to the private lodges around Kruger. We can organise a transfer flight that takes you straight to the airstrips outside your luxury lodge! So the fun can begin immediately, and you can skip any 4x4 bumpy rides.
