User Reviews – South Africa
65+ years of age | Experience level: 2-5 safaris
There are many parks in South Africa. Some boast of the big five, some are quiet and have lovely scenery. So you have much opportunity to chose what you want.
In 2010 we spent 16 days insides parks and now, in 2012, even 19 days.
If we stay healthy this won't be the last time.
Sometimes you must be patient or lucky. As we travelled from north to south in Kruger last april (14 days) we saw our first lonely lion only after 7 days! The next day we saw some 12 lions in front of our car!

Kruger park doesn't have the same bush ibe as e.g. camping in Moremi or Chobe in Botswana because it is so easy to self drive. But it does have a lot of great wildlife (which can also be a challenge to see because of the thick scrub. I really loved combining the safari element with other wildlife activities such as diving (Mozambique), birding (e.g. penguins at Betty's bay and pelagic seabirds), whale watching (hermanus), sightseeing (Blyde river and Cape town) and shark diving around the cape.

Great variety of wildlife, but we are extremely worried about the high rate of poaching at the moment which really spoils the whole experience
The only reason for not making higher ratings is that this Reserve is on a smaller scale than the ones I have seen on TV.

Whales, sharks, Ostriches, Baboons, Dazzies, lions, tigers, crazy spikey trees. everthing in south Africa is just over sized (and slightly dangerous , in a good way)....
Because the country is the cultivated Africa, it is not always easy to get really drowned into the bush atmosphere. Civilisation is often just a little to close

Nice and rather safe country (except of big cities), nice people.
Kruger park is also good voor birding.
