Only a few hours' drive from Johannesburg, the Kruger National Park is one of South Africa's biggest travel draw cards: an enormous slice of raw wilderness bursting with wildlife - and the good news is that the park is perfect for family safari holidays.
The Kruger Park was created with visitors in mind and that's how it's run today. It's an easy self-drive destination and you can fly straight there from Johannesburg, Cape Town and even the Mozambican coast - once there you'll discover just why this Wales-sized reserve has earned itself such a global reputation.
A network of good roads and numerous lodges are scattered throughout the 22 000 square kilometres of the park and the diversity of wildlife is unmatched in the country: the Big 5 are all resident, the bird watching is sensational and the general game viewing is non-stop - you'll always see something on one of our Kruger Park Family Holidays!
It's made all the easier by the fact that many of the Kruger safari lodges have been designed for families to experience the incredible beauty and excitement of Africa together. We'd thoroughly recommend the lodges that are set in the various private reserves that adjoin the Kruger Park's western boundary - the game viewing is among the best in Africa and you'll enjoy exclusivity, genuine luxury and expert guiding.
Dedicated game drive vehicles, guided nature walks, child-minders and special activity programmes are just some of the things that are on offer at these lodges - tons of stuff to keep the kids safe, happy and busy while you get down to the serious business of enjoying one of our first-class Kruger Park family holidays.
