Plan Carefully to Make the Most of Tours in the Kruger National Park
There is no denying that Kruger National Park tours are some of the most amazing things you can do when in South Africa, and probably Africa. As one of the largest game reserves on the continent – and the one that boasts the most species of large mammals – this is a must-visit destination for anyone who wants to have a proper African safari experience.
That said, there is a bit more to it than getting on a plane and simply showing up. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when planning tours to the Kruger National Park to make sure that you have the best time of your life:
Choose the Time of Year
With its mild weather, there isn’t a wrong time to book tours in the Kruger National Park. However, different times of the year will deliver different experiences. The summer months (around October to March) are hot and lush, as this is the rainy season. The landscape will be green and beautiful, but this might hinder your views.
Winter months (April to September) are drier and colder. The bush will be sparser, making it easier to spot wildlife as they congregate around the diminishing water holes.
Make sure that you take protection against the harsh African sun, as it can get hot, even during winter. A sunhat and sunglasses are a great idea. The winter nights and early mornings can be quite cold, so take something warm with you. Hiking boots are not necessary, but you definitely want comfortable shoes. And, remember to take a good camera to capture all the exciting action!
