The size of Kruger is huge, we asked our guide how long would it take to tour the park in total. The answer- THREE WEEKS!!!!

There are so many game reserves to visit with such a wide variety of game viewing and birding. We camp mostly so I can't comment of other accommodation or food.

South Africa is one of the most biologically diverse areas in the world. It has fantastic opportunities for people interested in all types of wildlife viewing.

Lots of animals & birds to sight in their natural habitat. The bush has a certain unique beauty about it but the drought had dried up a lot of creek beds & vegetation. It's exciting to witness wild animals in the wild - almost surreal at times.

It was the only safari I've ever been on, so I don't have anything to compare it to. However, for a first time, it was wonderful.

Very good views of a number of mammals, especially leopards, elephants and white rhino but fewer bird species than expected. This could have been due to the very dry months prior to our visit with rains only beginning a day or two before our arrival. During the course of our stay the bush started to turn green so I can imagine that the scenic beauty will be much better in the weeks and months to come.

Parks are relatively small and widely separated, few really "wide open spaces"; even the Kruger feels confined due to roads.

The national park is fairly far out of the way from most major cities in South Africa, but the scenic beauty is worth the extra travel time.
Birding is worthwhile especially if you are a birder and enjoy identifying all the small birds that occur in the grasslands.

The only negative thing it's sometimes there are too many people watching the same animal and it could be stressing for him.
