Your leave is set, and now all you have to do is find the right Kruger Park accommodation, perfect for you and your family. Firstly, what are you looking for? Are you looking for a luxury accommodation lodge or have you decided that you would like to book into a small self-catering camp site? Well the good news is that you will certainly not be short of options.
The Kruger National Park is and has always been extremely popular. Did you know that over one million local and international tourists visit, and book into Kruger Park accommodation each year? This is one of the most visited and loved tourist safari destinations in the world.
Situated in the North-East part of South Africa, in the provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga, the Kruger National Park is the oldest established and best maintained wildlife park in Africa, boasting the highest variety of wildlife. There are over 147 mammal species, which include the “Big 5” (buffalo, leopard, lion, rhino, and elephant). Unlike any other safari destination in the world, people travel across oceans just to experience the authenticity of coming almost meters away from some of the most dangerous predators in the world. The park is over 2 million hectares in size. So, as you can well imagine, accommodation in the Kruger Park is everywhere to be found, which makes choosing the right type quite overwhelming.
