The Kruger Park area encompasses part of two South African provinces, Mpumalanga and Limpopo. To the south is the tiny independent kingdom of Swaziland. It’s an area of mountains, panoramic passes, valleys, rivers, waterfalls and forests.
This is Big Game country, the setting for dozens of sanctuaries teeming with wildlife and birds. Kruger National Park is world-renowned, as are several of the private reserves on its western boundary. There are also wildlife reserves in Swaziland, a country of spectacular mountain scenery.
Many of our clients fly in and out of the Sabi Sand. You can fly direct from Johannesburg; or from Cape Town to Nelspruit airport, at the southern end of Kruger Park, where you connect with a light aircraft flight. Two, or preferably three nights is a good length of time to stay at a private lodge. This is also a super area for a self-drive holiday. You can tour the Blyde River Canyon area and drive to any of the private lodges (though you won’t use the car again until you leave).
