2020 has been a crazy year for everyone, many businesses have experienced losses, the economy has taken a dive and tourism was greatly impacted. As the months passed through the Lockdown, things slowly stated to get back to normal and this benefited the animals of the Kruger as they were able to gain some time to recuperate. The animals started to travel to highly visited areas making the animal encounters much more diverse. The Kruger National Park has finally been opened to the public once more and with the International Borders opened again, now has never been a better time to visit the Kruger.
After a long time being confined to the city or town, being exposed to the same views everyday gets tiring and can be stressful. Now that the Kruger National Park is opened and things are getting back to normal, you can finally go for a weekend getaway, forgetting about the stresses of your busy and stressful lives, taking in the fresh wild air and getting back in touch with nature.
Locals and also anyone in South Africa can rejoice as the Kruger National Park has implemented lower rates for any and all South African citizens to increase business and also to focus on attracting visitors much closer to home. Lower rates means that now has never been a better time to visit the Kruger National Park and this means group / family visits are now cheaper and a great option to escape the repetitiveness of everyday life and make some wonderful memories.
The Kruger National Park, as mentioned before, has gotten some much deserved TLC on both the human and animal side of things. The closing period has provided ample time for Park staff to renovate, improve and maintain the many rest camps, vehicles and roads found in the Park, providing visitors with an improved experience. The animals also received some time to settle down during the many months of silence and lack of visitors, allowing them to populate otherwise popular tourist locations as well as to repopulate in peace. This all culminates in a truly enhanced game viewing experience with more animal encounters as well as unexpected encounters of animals you wouldn’t expect to find in certain areas.
As 2020 draws closer to an end, the holiday season comes ever closer. October, November and December are part of the rainy season which means cooler weather for travelling through the Kruger, making your safari experience just that little bit more comfortable. Self Drive Safari experiences as well as Guided Kruger Park Safaris are much more popular and common, pair this with the cheaper entry and conservation fees and you have an amazing and truly memorable Kruger National Park experience that can be shared with family and friends, especially now that the holiday season is creeping closer and closer.
Kurt Safari Co offers truly amazing Guided Kruger National Park Safari options as well as great accommodation for those in the Kruger Park for more than a day.
