Absolutely! Some people are concerned about safety due to negative media reports, which may give potential visitors the wrong impression. By and large, South Africa is calm and peaceful and we continue to welcome millions of tourists a year to our beautiful country.

The Kruger National Park is huge (over 220 miles from North to South) and it is impossible to see it all in one trip. To the West of the Kruger Park are a number of large private game reserves that share an unfenced border with the Kruger Park. Together the whole reserve is called the Greater Kruger National Park and it spans more than 2.2 million hectares of pristine wilderness. For our Kruger Park safaris, we focus on the game-rich Southern half of the Kruger National Park, which has the richest diversity of habitats and animal life.

Please consult your doctor or pharmacist for further information on prophylaxis. In addition to taking anti-malaria medication we recommend the following precautionary measures: cover your arms, feet and legs during the early mornings and evenings by wearing long sleeve clothing, apply a good quality mosquito repellent and sleep under a mosquito net. Each tent is equipped with mosquito and insect repellent as well as mosquito nets around the beds and on the windows and doors. Do not let the risk of malaria stop you from enjoying your safari! Over a million visitors come to the Kruger National Park every year, and very few cases of malaria are reported.

Well, simply to experience something that no other continent can offer you, a chance to experience Wildlife animals and birds in their natural habitat interacting with other animals and birds. Apart from that a safari experience is essentially relaxing, a chance to get out of the city, come to the bush and relax, watch the sun set and rise and enjoy the endless stars in the night skies.

The Big 5 is actually a hunting term, used to describe Africa’s 5 most dangerous animals to hunt on foot in the bush. In the Kruger National Park, spotting all of the big 5 in one or two days is very possible but cannot be guaranteed. Due to the vastness of Kruger, it is impossible to predict in advance what animals you will find on your safari. This is part of the excitement and adventure of looking for wildlife in their natural environment. Also, in your quest to view the big 5, be sure not to miss out on the many other interesting animals, birds, plants, insects and reptiles to be found.
