South Africa’s Kruger National Park is hardly a safari secret, but walking safaris in some of its hidden corners are. 

Kruger is one of the most visited parks in all of Africa, and it can get very crowded in-season, especially in the south. But don’t let this discourage you from visiting. It is an outstanding park, with excellent variety and numbers of wildlife. A great way to appreciate this is on one of Kruger’s multi-day wilderness walking trails, especially in the park’s central and northern sections.

You’ll have the wilderness and wildlife to yourself, and the trails offer a real chance to get to know the bush. Guides are very knowledgeable, and doing the trails is like taking a mini-course in bush tracking. The whole experience is fantastic and highly addictive – you won’t want it to end.
