If you are looking for the ultimate treat, you should arrange a trip to one of the luxury game lodges in South Africa. Some of the best game lodges in the country are situated in or around the Kruger National Park. Visiting the Kruger Park and staying at one of these lodges is a deeply pleasant experience that you will never forget!
About the Kruger National Park
As one of the best attractions in the world, the Kruger National Park is a place where you can encounter a great variety of African wildlife, including the Big Five. It is one of the biggest game parks on the continent and covers an area of almost twenty thousand square kilometres. It stretches across parts of Mpumalanga and Limpopo , and it has been protected by the government since its inception in 1898, in order to keep the natural fauna and flora completely unspoilt. The Kruger National Park is fenced off to keep out hunters, intruders, and poachers, and access can only be gained through one of the nine strictly guarded gates which provide access to the different camps in the reserve.
There are 21 rest camps in the Kruger National Park, and also two private lodge concessions which include around 15 of the most luxurious game lodges in South Africa. Private companies own these pieces of land along with the local communities, and the management of these game lodges is usually outsourced to private individuals or businesses. The 21 rest camps provide highly desirable accommodation options that suit different budgets, including camp sites, tented camps, bungalows, rondavels, and highly memorable game lodges. The rest camps all have restaurants and basic shopping facilities for the use of guests, and the camps are securely fenced off to ensure the safety of the people within.

Game lodges can be found all over the south of the continent, but the game lodges in South Africa are particularly luxurious and exciting to stay in.
