The Kruger National Park is one of South Africa’s most iconic and popular tourist attractions, with millions of tourists visiting each year. For many who visit the Kruger National Park, it will be their first time and can often cause a sense of fear and intimidation as many are not familiar with the surroundings. Luckily there are many tour operators that take visitors and tourists through this Gem of South Africa.
One of the best tour operators is Kurt Safari Co. and with more than 20 years in the business, Kurt Safari Co. provides astounding service and quality as all their guides are well educated and have years of wildlife experience.
Going on a Guided tour has many benefits and is a very popular choice with many who visit the Park for the first time.
The Kruger National Park is a very large place and it is very easy to feel overwhelmed about where to go. This is where Guided tours make life much easier. Tourists and visitors are taken through the Kruger National Park in specialized safari vehicles that optimize viewing experience.
Tourists and visitors are given an up close and specialized safari experience as there is a guide that is assigned to the group that focusses on their interests. Guides have greater knowledge of the Kruger Park and know the best times and locations to view animals that someone going on a self-drive safari would likely not know.
On a guided safari, visitors and tourists don’t have to worry about focusing on driving while travelling the Kruger as they can focus on game viewing while their guide does all the driving. This allows tourists to get that perfect shot when driving, not having to worry to get everything ready.
Visitors are also educated while on guided game drives. As the tour progresses, the guide will provide interesting and useful information about a variety of things from animals to plant life, whatever they encounter. These educated tours also tend to be rather memorable and are a fun experience to have while enjoying the beauty of the Kruger.
The vehicles used for a guided tour are specially designed with comfort and vision in mind. Unlike many private vehicles which are rather small and compact and have many obstructions, the safari vehicles are larger, and the tourists can enjoy the Kruger Park from higher seats. There are Minimal windows and supports on these vehicles, providing the best and most unobstructed view possible, regardless of where you sit.
Guided Safaris allow for larger groups of people to enjoy the Kruger National Park together and are quite popular among tourists and large groups travelling together. With Private guided tours, family members and travelling groups can travel together and create some great memories.
For those taking part in a multiple day Kruger National Park Safari, the guides will travel to a new location each day, allowing visitors to experience more of the Kruger park and encountering more amazing animals. Because of the Kruger Park’s large size and distances between rest camps can be quite long, travel range may differ depending on where you decide to stay.
