Safari is a must when visiting South Africa. There are many safari operators for you to choose based on your expectations, requirements and budget. Enjoy the park and ensure you stop by the souvenir shop.

Kruger lived up to all the Hype. I went on a 2 day Safari with Africa Spear and saw so many different animals. We were debating a Cape Town Safari, but glad we went here instead.
