Game Drives in the Kruger

Luxury Game Lodges and Exciting Game Drives in the Kruger National Park

It is no secret that the Kruger National Park is one of the most sought-after wildlife attractions in the world. People from across the globe come to this park to encounter the best of what Africa has to offer: luxury lodges, game drives and hikes, superb cuisine, stunning natural settings and, of course, the extraordinary African sunsets. Game drives are one of the main attractions because these give people the opportunity to travel out into the bush in vehicles that are specifically adapted to provide maximum visibility of the surroundings.

Going on a game drive rather than doing a self-drive is also better because they are conducted by guides and trackers who are very knowledgeable about the fauna and flora in the area. They provide interesting facts and information to anybody who is curious about African wildlife. The trackers who conduct game drives are usually informed about the whereabouts of animals, and are often in radio contact with other game drivers. This means that when there is an interesting sighting, they let each other know the locations of these sightings. People who choose to self-drive tend to miss out on many opportunities to see or encounter wildlife. Often, these animals are well camouflaged in tall grass, and even if they are relatively close by, the untrained eye is unlikely to spot them.

One of the best things to do when you are a fan of high-quality game drives is to book into one of the luxury lodges within the Kruger National Park. These lodges usually offer game drives as a standard part of the accommodation package, and they employ the best guides and trackers to conduct these game drives. This provides many opportunities to encounter the animals you want to see, such as the Big Five!

One of the most popular lodges in the Kruger National Park is Lukimbi Safari Lodge. Set on a private concession within the park, our privately owned lodge provides visitors with the ultimate in luxury. Here you will find plush suites with private balconies, outstanding cuisine, complete privacy, peace and quiet, and the opportunity to go on regular game drives to encounter animals you would love to see up close!
