A trip to South Africa would not be complete without a visit to a Game Reserve and South Africa has many to offer.
Game drives generally take place around sunrise and sunset, when game is most active, so a fleece or sweatshirt is recommended - as is neutral coloured, cotton clothing and sunhat. Remember to take binoculars with you and twice as much film as you anticipate using! Anti-malarial precautions should be taken, so consult a doctor before leaving home.
KRUGER NATIONAL PARK
None is more renowned than the Kruger National Park, which boasts not only a highly developed infrastructure but also impeccable hospitality and a phenomenal concentration of game.
With most lodges and camps situated around water-holes, excellent game viewing is a distinct reality, and you may be lucky enough to view some, if not all, of the Big 5 (buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and rhino) during your stay and with no fences between each private reserve's boundaries, game wanders freely around the park. About the size of Wales, a stay of minimum 2 nights is recommended.
