Best Kruger Lodges & Camps

The best way to experience the magic of the Kruger is to stay in one of the many safari lodges located within the park’s internal private concessions or in the private reserves that hug the Kruger’s western, unfenced border. Distinguished by excellent service and fine cuisine, our selection of private Kruger Park lodges and camps are the gold standard in Kruger National Park accommodation. Many have been the accommodation of choice for celebrities and royalty, and several lodges rank among the finest in Africa.

But these lodges don’t just offer luxurious accommodation. Besides superb general game viewing, visitors are virtually guaranteed sightings of the Big 5 and enjoy safari activities not normally permitted in the park itself such as night drives, guided nature walks and off-road driving.

Accommodation in Kruger also includes affordable tented camps, self-catering rest camps, family-friendly lodges and even rustic bush camps that focus on guided walking safaris. But if you’re looking for the ultimate in luxury, then one of our exclusive Kruger safari villas, hidden deep in the heart of the Big 5 country, will give you the wildlife experience of a lifetime.
