Why You Should Book a Private Game Drive in the Kruger Park
One of the most sought-after safari destinations in Africa is the Kruger National Park. It contains a wide array of African wildlife in their natural habitat, including the famous Big 5. Other attractions include the natural setting and the safari lodges in the area. Some of these lodges are situated on private concessions in and around the reserve. Visitors who want to have a truly unique experience choose to book a private game drive in the Kruger Park, rather than doing a self-drive safari.
The Kruger Park is state-owned, which means that the accommodation and park rules are standardised. Game viewing is restricted to the reliable network of routes and roads throughout the park, and strict rules and procedures have to be followed by everyone who chooses to self-drive.
Because the concessions in and around the reserve are privately owned, they are not bound by the state restrictions and some of the game viewing regulations. Those who want to have a truly unique experience simply have to book a private game drive in the Kruger Park. These game drives are usually conducted by experienced guides and trackers who know the reserve very well, and have in-depth knowledge of the animals in the area and where they are likely to be located. Trackers and guides from the various concessions are also often in radio contact and inform each other of good sightings, which vastly increases the chances of visitors being able to view rarely seen animals.
Another reason to book a private game drive is that these concessions tend to have an open-gate agreement with each other and the Kruger Park, which means that there is more territory to explore, as private game drives are allowed in areas where self-drive visitors are not allowed to enter. This makes the entire experience more exclusive and enjoyable.
