If you’re looking for an off-road, completely natural experience, Kruger isn’t the place. After you pay your entrance fee, the roads are paved, and — unless you’re with a tour — you drive yourself around the park. Even most of the tour companies stick to the paved roads. You can tell when there’s an animal sighting when you see a traffic jam of cars all vying for a view. There are some fantastic sights, though. In one day we saw four of the Big Five. I would recommend booking a night drive with one of Kruger’s own drivers. It’s an unforgettable experience.

This experience is not to be missed if you are in the country. You can start outside the park to make it more affordable and also do self drives (ZAR880 for 2 adults) but you should do at least one safari with a guide since they know all the best bits. A full day safari is good value but you see the big cats mostly early morning or after 3pm when they start moving around again. So either a sunrise or sunset game drive is good value. The park closes at 5:30pm in winter so if you are self s driving you need to be out by then. Mid day is great for elephants, giraffes, zebras. Surprisingly a lot can be spotted if driving slowly along the main roads. The dirt roads look like small loops but since they are unpaved, and the elephants footprints make large potholes, so you end up spending an hour to drive a 20km stretch.
Rest stops have some snacks n souvenirs, it’s better to pack some food while you drive around so that you won’t be hungry for long.
We saw the big 5 every day for 3 days, multiple times in a day so it can be done!

What a disappointment. Don’t think about going to Kruger. The animals appear to be virtually non existent. We only saw one of the big five and having to stay on the road means you can’t really see the animals at all; unless they decide to also walk on the road which is rare.

Sabi Sands however, is a different story but you have to stay in a lodge. Staying at “Idube” was wonderful. Great food, staff, accomodation and ANIMALS galore easily found by awesome tracker and driver.

The 3 days myself and my wife spent in Kruger was brilliant we had a wonderfull time our guide was really nice and from the minute he picked us up at nelspruit airport we felt at ease he was a lovely man and very knowledgeable.We saw all the big five and much more.We stayed at lower Sabie rest camp .The bungalow we stayed in was perfect.The trip was organised by Sue Garson at safaris for Africa We have done various day trips, and a 9 day trip to Namibia a few years ago with Safaris for Africa.I would highly recommend this company.

Tamboti camp needs some maintenance. No hot water in the kitchen. Poor drainage in the showers. Tents need maintenance and some need to be closed off until maintained and revamped.
