With close to 5 million acres of untouched wilderness, Kruger national park creates one of the most diverse and outstanding wildernesses where nature speaks for itself. This park, established in the 1890s, was the first African conservation area that was initially started to control hunting.

Today, Kruger National park is South Africa’s most exciting park and one of the most coveted destinations in Africa. The park is accessible by both road and Air from Johannesburg, South Africa’s commercial capital. There are at least 2 daily scheduled flights from O.R Tambo airport, Johannesburg, to each of the 3 airports in the Greater Kruger region.

For a more affordable overland safari, it will take you approximately 6 hrs to drive to the southern part of Kruger from Johannesburg. The park boosts a range of flora varieties, approximately 570 avifauna species, over 140 large animal species, and several enthralling natural scenes.

Kruger is home to all the big five. Besides Kruger national parks, the greater Kruger boosts a host of private reserves that share unfenced borders leading to an additional 444000 acres of wilderness where wildlife can freely wander about without restrictions. These private parks offer a whole different bush experience.

Why visit Kruger national park

  •   Diverse flora views. Unlike the famous Masai Mara and Serengeti, which are open savannah plains, in Kruger you will marvel at the incredibly rich flora, often denser woodlands and bushlands, mainly encompassing mopaneveld vegetation. Here some of the most popular nature trails in the park presents an opportunity to encounter over 2000 plant species.
  • Diverse bird scenes. There are over 570 avifauna species in the entire greater Kruger region. Some are endemic to this wilderness and others migrate from Europe and the middle east. Some common bird varieties include southern ground hornbill, Fork-tailed drongo and martial eagle
  • Dramatic landscape. Kruger national park has an alluring and diverse landscape. The numerous kruger kopjes creates some of the most photogenic sites of Africa. The park is also a wealth of natural scenes ranging from river valleys to mountains. All creating unique and very diverse adaptations for different fauna and avifauna species.
  • Quintessential game scenes. The greater Kruger region boosts an endless list of fauna species.
  • Family friendliness. When compared to other premium destinations like Masai Mara and Serengeti, Kruger offers more family-friendly lodge accommodations. In particular, Kruger offers a wider range of accommodations with a favorable child policy for children (11 years and below) when compared to the East Africa two parks.

Game Viewing During a Kruger Safari

The incredibly diverse and vast vegetation leads to a universe of bush experiences abounding with fauna of different kinds. Here you will find some of Africa’s popular, endangered and near-endangered animal species coming in very impressive numbers. First, Kruger has some of Africa’s most enthralling hunting scenes with all Africa’s big cats found in this wilderness. Here, even the cagier and less spotted leopard thrives mainly in the riverine woodlands along the Sabie river and when lucky, you will stumble upon one hanging on a tree. The lions are, however, the most common of the big cats, mainly living near riverine forests from where they stalk their victims. Unlike the leopards, it’s easier to spot lions as they come to the open field and they live in colonies mostly composing female members. Cheetahs are more common in the Lebombo hills characterized by numerous rocky outcrops and spots of acacia thorn bushes in the savannah plains. The central part of Kruger public park is the best location for sighting predation actions due to the extensive grassland tracts that are thriving grounds for zebras and impalas who attract lions and opportunistic scavengers like spotted hyenas. Sabi sand is on the other end the best private reserve for big cat safari considering the park’s high lion density. Importantly, private reserves allow night game drives which are prime hours for watching hunting scenes. Kruger national park is also South Africa’s leading destination for elephant tracking. These giants of the savannah mostly live in families that can go to over 20 members, but it’s not unusual to find a lone elephant. They mostly feed on mopane leaves and are widespread across all the regions of the park. Other animals include greater kudu, waterbuck, nyala, vervet monkey, southern giraffe, black rhino, white rhino, blue wildebeest, African wildcat and sable antelope. You will require a minimum of two days to visit one region of the park- Southern, Central and Northern. However, with each of the regions boosting a unique array of flora and fauna, we recommend you take 5 days to exhaustively transverse all corners of the park. The southern part of the park is the most visited section mainly due to its highly developed infrastructure and proximity to Johannesburg

Which is better for game viewing public reserve vs private reserves

The greater Kruger boosts several private reserves, among them Sabi Sand, Balule, Timbavati and Manyeleti reserves. The reserve shares a fenceless border with the main Kruger park, allowing free movement of wildlife between the wildernesses. You, therefore, have equal opportunities to sight big safari animals whichever way you choose. The difference mainly rests on the safari experience and budgeting. With the public park, you will have wider budget accommodation options including a backpack camping option where you carry your tent. For a private reserve, you will have to take luxury accommodation. However, the private reserves gives a slightly better value for money going by how these parks operate. First, private reserves only allow in guests booked in one of their lodges while in the public park you can check in from outside. By choosing a private reserve, you will therefore have better interaction with the wilderness considering you are at a position to visit both. Again, private reserves limit visitors who visit, giving you bush exclusivity, which is the epitome of an African safari. Notably, Kruger park annoyingly crowds during South Africa’s school holidays ( December and January), especially in the southern Kruger region. For general game experience, private reserves offer a wider engagement with the wilderness. For instance, private parks allow off-roading to sight scenes happening far from the park’s main roads. In the main park, you are supposed to stick to the main road where considering the park’s dense thickets, you may have a visibility problem when sighting an action far inside the wilderness. Again, lodges within private reserves offer night game drives a provision not available in the public park. Night game drives, especially along the riverbanks, allow travelers to sight the big cats and other nocturnal animals in their most active moments.

Wilderness trails

Kruger national park offers a better walking safari experience when compared to other African premium destinations. Most of the walking trails start and end in a rest camp and take you through a one-on-one engagement with nature for 3 days. Kruger trails give a mind-blowing bush experience with dramatic changeovers in landscapes and vegetation along the track bringing to sight more fauna and flora species. Importantly, Kruger has 7 nature trails starting from Satara, Pretoriuskop, Letaba, Punda Maria and Berg-en-Dal rest camps. Most of the trails start on Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning and continue to Wednesday morning.

Where to stay in Kruger national park?

Whether you want to rough it and experience the wilderness at a budget price or you desire a heartwarming luxury comfort of a safari lodge, Greater Kruger serves the needs of every traveler. When choosing accommodation, the very first consideration is the budget plan. For a basic rest camp accommodation, you can budget as low as 135 USD. Importantly, some of these rest camps have family cottages. Again, a rest camp will not always mean canvas accommodation. Some facilities are like small resorts that will give you more comfort than you bargained for. For luxury lodge accommodation, you will pay from 300 USD up to over 1000 USD for a double room a night. The other consideration is your personal desire. Whether you want a self-catering facility or full-board accommodation, Kruger has it all. In case you are seeking to have a serene ambiance, which is the mark of an authentic African wilderness; choose accommodation located towards the remote northern part of the public reserve. This region has relatively low visitor uptake throughout the year.  But it is a stay in the private reserve or a private concession within the park that gives an off-beaten bush experience that creates an everlasting emblem in your mind. A stay here will give you unrestricted freedom to off-road drive, sundown in the wilderness, and go for night game drives. Just like the Kruger northern section, these facilities offer an evocative serene stay in an African Bush.

When to visit Kruger national park

Kruger is an all-year-round safari destination. However, the dry season between September and October is the best for game viewing. Over this period, the bushvelds are less dense, hence easier for game sighting when driving along the park’s main roads. Again, over the dry seasons, most watering holes dry up and grazing lands thin out. This leads to wildlife congregating near the few remaining water points and floodplains, which is favorable for game tracking. For bird lovers, January to April is the best time for a Kruger safari. During this period there is a wide variety of migratory birds, especially insect eaters who have migrated from Europe running away from the harsh winter condition

Located west of the Great Rift Valley, Mara is a natural extension of the Serengeti plains in the neighboring Tanzania. The Mara River, the reserve’s backbone traverses north to south. This course is the natural barrier crossed each year by large migratory heard of wildebeest and zebra which march across the two parks in search of pasture, crossing en route, the crocodile infested Mara River. Coupled with ever watchful predatory cats in the midst, the annual migration is a risky affair and fraught with peril. Morning and evening game drives through the Marareserve gives you a chance of spotting a diverse array of wildlife including elephants, giraffe, black rhino, cheetah, gazelle, buffalo, hippo, various other herbivores and bird species.

Samburu National Reserve is located on the banks of the Ewaso Ng’iro river in Kenya; on the other side of the river is the Buffalo Springs National Reserve in Northern Kenya. It is 165 km² in size and 350 kilometers from Nairobi and ranges in altitude from 800 to 1230m above sea level.

The presence, however, of the river – and its shady trees – attracts plenty of wildlife. Giraffe, buffalo, waterbuck and zebra (including the endangered Grevy’s zebra) from the surrounding savannah plains trek to the water.Lion, leopard and cheetah are also quite easy to spot, thanks in part to the lack of grass cover. Samburu is also home to large herds of elephants, and the reserve is well known for providing the opportunity to see wildlife that only lives in the dry north of Kenya.

Be on the look out for gerenuks – these odd, yet distinguished looking, gazelle have long necks, and stand on their hind legs to feed.
For the birders, around 365 species have been recorded and the river area is particularly rewarding. Across the river is the Buffalo Springs National Reserve. A bridge connects the two, and they are often grouped together by tour companies. Nearby is the swampy wilderness of the Shaba National Reserve.

There is a good selection of safari lodges and luxury tented camps in the Samburu Region. Samburu Intrepids and Samburu Lodge are just two of them.

The Samburu National Reserve was one of the two areas in which conservationists George Adamson and Joy Adamson raised Elsa the Lioness made famous in the best selling book and award winning movie Born Free.

Mount Kenya is Africa’s second highest mountain at 5,199m (17,058 feet) and the highest of all Kenya Mountains. Mount Kenya is roughly circular, about 60km across at the 200mm contour, where the steep font hills rise out of the gentler slopes of the centered highlands.At the centre of the massif, the main peaks rise sharply from around 4,500m to the main summit of Batian 5,199m, Nelion 5,188m and point Lenana 4,985m. Other major summits on the mountain include Point Piggott 4,957m, Point Dutton 4,885 and Point John 4,883m. Of the three main peaks (Batian, Lenana and Nelion), only point Lenana can be reached by trekkers and the other two being only for technical climbers.

Mount Kenya is the second highest peak in Africa and stands somewhat unjustly in the shadow of it’s taller neighbour Kilimanjaro, which lies some 320km away in the south and is visible on a clear day. Kili may see much more traffic – due to the possibility of summitting via several non-technical trekking routes and due to the sometimes dubious honour of being one of the Seven Summits – but Mount Kenya offers a wealth of excellent and diverse climbing possibilities on rock, snow and ice.
The rock on Mount Kenya can be of variable quality but is at it’s best high on the mountain where the syenite rock is similar to granite – rough, hard and well endowed with features.
Apart from the superb climbing potential on Mount Kenya, its tarns and alpine meadows; exotic, equatorial, high-altitude vegetation; sunbirds, hyrax and soaring eagles make the walk around the peaks one of the most beautiful expeditions in the East African mountains.
After the cultivated farmlands on the lower slopes the trails pass through the rain forest, rich in trees of many species but noticeably camphors, then onto a bamboo zone growing to heights of more than 12m or more up through open moor land before reaching the moonscape of higher slopes. The forests are rich in wildlife including elephant, buffalo and monkeys with even the moor lands offering a long list of mammals including the rock hyrax, the nearest living relative of the elephant.
Mt. Kenya is an ancient volcanic mountain much older than Mt. Kilimanjaro. It’s believed to have once reached well above 600m. What is left today is volcanic plug which erosion has fashioned into the complex jagged outline of the central peaks.
Getting to Mount Kenya | Go to Mount KenyaMount Kenya is approximately 200km north of Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, and is comfortably accessible by road using a variety of transport options – buses, mini buses, taxi cab or a car hire will get you close to the mountain on the tarred roads to the nearest town: Naromoru town for Naro Moru route, Nanyuki town for Sirimon route and Chogoria town for Chogoria route. Mt Kenya Hiking,Mount Kenya Climbing, Mount Kenya Trekking, Climbing Africa Mountains, Climbing Mt Kenya, Walking on Mount Kenya, Mount Kenya Trekking Route, Naro Moru Route, Nanyuki, Sirimon Route on Mount Kenya, Shiptons Camp,
The last stretch from the nearest town to the various trailheads (typically +/- 25km) will be on dirt roads and these can be in poor condition (especially in wet weather) and require a 4WD, or an approach on foot.

When to Trek Mount Kenya

Although, Mount Kenya can be climbed all year round, the highest rainfall occurs between late March and the middle of May, and slightly less between late October and mid December. Maximum rainfall occurs in the forest belt and on the south-east side of the mountain where it reaches 2500mm. per year at 3000m. Rain and, higher up, snow can however be encountered at any time of year – even in the driest periods (January and February). Normally the drier seasons are associated with clear, dry weather which can last for many days on end. The best weather is generally in the mornings, and convectional rainfall, if any, tends to come in the mid-afternoon.
Temperatures vary considerably with height and with time of day. At 3000m. frosts can be encountered at night while day temperatures range from 5 to 15°C. Night time temperatures on the summit are well below freezing. The south-facing side of Mount Kenya receives more sunshine in the December to March period. During this time rock climbs are “in-condition” and snow and ice climbs gradually deteriorate. In the June to October period the north-facing rock climbs and south-facing ice climbs are best.
It’s safest to climb Mt. Kenya during the dry seasons: January – February and August to September off the most reliably fine weather. The main routes are likely to be more crowded at this time of the year. If you favor complete solitude over the sunny skies, try going slightly off the peak season. It’s best to avoid the two rainy seasons from mid March until June and from late October to the end of December.

Mount Kenya VegetationMount Kenya is home to some fascinating high-altitude alpine vegetation including giant groundsels and lobelias.
In the lower-altitude forest zone trekkers may come across some rather large and uncompromising African wildlife such as elephants and buffalo – fortunately these are mostly active only at night. Lions, leopard, rock hyrax, various antelope species and a wide range of other creatures large and small occur in the park.
Mount Kenya Forest Vegetation And Coverage In Percentage:
Bamboo – 10%
Bamboo and Forest Mix – 23%
Forest – 32%
Bushy Forest – 11%
Grassland – 8.5%
Plantation – 9%
Other – 6.5%
Mount Kenya climbing Routes/ItinerariesThere are three main routes, which penetrate the forest and the moorland. The routes are Naromoru route, Sirimon route and Chogoria route and each of which has something different to offer.  The Trek Mount Kenya Climbing Expeditions has offers for the below hiking routes. It is possible to combine hiking Mt. Kenya with Kenya safaris.
Climb Mount Kenya Naromoru route – The fastest route to point Lenana but not as scenic as the other two. It is often overcrowded with many climbers since it’s the most popular route compared to Chogoria route and Sirimon route trek Mount Kenya.
Mount Kenya Climbing Chogoria route – The most scenic and interesting of the three main routes on the mountain. The route passes the enchanting Hall Tarns and looks down sheer cliffs into the spectacular Gorges Valley and onto the beautiful Lake Michaelson.
Climbing Mount Kenya Sirimon route – The least used of the three main routes, but features the most gradual ascent profile and best acclimatisation options and above all the most interesting since its on the drier side on the mountain. The route passes through impressive Yellowwood forests in the lower reaches and features abundant wildlife and beautiful alpine scenery higher up.
There are other four climb Mt. Kenya routes up Point Lenana but are least known and used. These are: Burguret Route, Timau Route, Meru Route and Kamweti Route
Note: The normal pattern of weather on Mount Kenya is for clear mornings with mist closing in from 10:00am although this can clear by evening. Therefore, early morning climb Mt Kenya starts are the order of the day with a 2am start for the final ascent to point Lenana, if you want to catch the sunrise.  Go to Mount Kenya now and experience the majestic sunrise over Mt. Kenya. Sirimon route Mount Kenya is one of the best routes to use to hike to Lenana Peak.
