Why the Best Kruger Park Accommodation Isn’t in the Kruger Park

If you’re planning an unforgettable safari adventure, you might wonder why some of the best Kruger Park safaris feature accommodation in Hazyview, just outside the park’s borders, and not within the park itself. 

While the allure of Kruger Park is pretty undeniable, the choice to stay in Hazyview comes down to it being the perfect blend of comfort and proximity. The accommodation in Hazyview that Kurt Safari uses provides a tranquil retreat after exhilarating days spent in the heart of the wilderness and it is a mere 10 to 15 minute drive from the park, making those early morning game drives, which offer the best wildlife sightings, possible.

Why we choose Hazyview as the Base for our Safaris

Nestled between the Drakensberg Mountains and the Kruger National Park, Hazyview is a small town surrounded by lush landscapes and rich cultural experiences, and it is near both the Panorama Route and the Kruger making it an ideal base for your safari adventure.

There are many great reasons why Kruger Park safari companies like ours prefer to use lodges and hotels outside of the park, and here are just a few of them.

  • Proximity to Kruger

Hazyview provides a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in authentic African culture. While in the area you can mingle with local communities, tuck into traditional cuisine, and, if only for a short while, enjoy the vibrant spirit of the region.
