Accommodation in the Kruger Park
There are truly so many options for locals and tourists alike when looking for accommodation in the Kruger Park. Your perfect option would depend mainly on the area of the park where you would like to be based, or you could book your accommodation at various camps if you want to explore a large area of the Kruger Park. It’s difficult to say where exactly the best place to stay in the Kruger Park is because it is so large and has so many different kinds of plant life in different areas, each attracting different species of animals and, in turn, different predators as well. Some predators are territorial, so it helps if you book a safari with experienced guides who know the Kruger Park well.
If you’re having trouble deciding on where to stay, contact Kurt Safari Co and one of our friendly consultants will assist you in booking the perfect accommodation in the Kruger Park or at one of the many great lodges in the surrounding area, depending on your preferences.
Good to know regarding the Fauna & Flora in Kruger National Park:
The plant life in the Kruger National Park is characterized by mixtures of Savannah, thornveld, and even woodland Eco-zones. Many large African mammals like Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, White Rhino, Hippopotamus & Giraffe are present, but that’s only a small percentage of the wildlife in the Kruger National Park.
It is the largest national park in South Africa and home to an impressive number of species. There are about 147 kinds of mammals, 336 different kinds of trees, 49 species of fish, 34 different amphibians, 114 kinds of reptiles, and 507 bird species, not to mention all the insects.
The world-famous Kruger National Park gives people all over the world an unforgettable wildlife experience, some might even say it’s the best in Africa. There is also world-class accommodation in the Kruger Park and surrounding areas, adding to its universal popularity.
It was established in 1898 with the sole purpose to protect the wildlife of South Africa. It is a beautiful and vibrant national park, nearly 2 million hectares in size. SANParks (South African National Parks) is unparalleled in the diversity of wildlife and an absolute world leader in progressive environmental management techniques and policies.
Travelling and accommodation in the Kruger Park:
The recommended way to travel to the Kruger National Park is to fly into Skukuza airport from Johannesburg or Cape Town. Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA) is another option as it is situated almost equal distances from White River and Nelspruit; both towns are near the Kruger Park. Flights are more expensive to KMIA than flying directly to Skukuza.
Contact Kurt Safari Co to plan your ideal holiday in Mpumalanga.
