7 day trip, good guide, good accomodations, good travel partner. Saw 4 of the big 5.
We did a 2day trip through a special gamereserve. There where the most beautifull encounters with wildlife.

Beautiful Scenery and Relaxing Safari Experience
Overall rating

I spent about three days driving through Kruger National Park on a tour bus as part of a University class trip. I loved that each night we stayed at another one of the campgrounds and we stayed in various types of camping cabin conditions from a nice cabin with a loft to permanent tents to little round huts with just beds.

The wildlife was not always abundant, but I liked the experience of looking for the wildlife and the excitement of seeing it. From the tour bus we saw a several of the Big Five during our trip including elephants, wild buffalo, and lions. I was among the few that decided to take an early morning safari on our last morning and we got to see our only rhino. Best of all we got to see a leopard in a tree right off the road, so we ended up seeing all of the Big Five during our trip. While it can be hard to see all of the Big Five in Kruger, the trip was great even before we lucked out and saw all of the Big Five on our last morning.

The scenery is beautiful and somewhat varied as you drive through the different parts of Kruger National Park.

I enjoyed that we took it slow getting to the campgrounds by mid afternoon and having the evening to relax. There was often still wildlife spotting opportunities at the campground including one that overlooked a large clearing. I enjoy identifying different bird species every morning while most were still sleeping using the little wildlife guidebook I picked up at the first gift shop we stopped at in Kruger. Most of the campgrounds had nice pools to swim in and cool off.

When I visited Kruger it was rather dry... and therefore brown and dusty...

Can be good for big cats. Accommodation middling (in some camps it's disappointingly 'basic'). Apart from some minor quibbles, however, it's especially fascinating to drive around if you start early - say 4.30am - 5.00am.

Here we saw all the big five except leopard. Our accommodation was in Mopane, up in the northern drier half of the park so the scenery wasn't the greatest, however these plenty of action with the wildlife. Like buffalo fighting on the road, elephants trumpeting and flapping ears at us, zebra stallions fighting and masses of birds. Also crocs and hyppos. While spotlighting at night we saw wild cats (not the big variety), hyenas and a very rare owl.

OK, I was a tourist but in Krüger I felt like a tourist, a longer stay, which I could no way afford, far to pricey!! may have changed my view but I doubt it.
