Kruger National Park
tips and insights

Visiting a
private reserve

The Kruger park guards will not let you enter a private reserve unless you have pre-booked accommodation reservations with it.


If luxury is beyond your budget, there are many alternatives, from no-frill camping sites to comfortable lodge within Kruger National Park

Park size

Kruger National Park is large. It measures 350 kilometers (220 miles) long and 60 kilometers (40 miles) wide.


Like most African safari areas, Kruger is in a malaria-risk area. Take anti-malaria pills. This is particularly critical during the wet season (summer).
