Kruger National Park & Sabi Sands Safaris

Isabel, Ra and Louise Fitzgerald are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • The Kruger National Park is home to 147 mammal species compared to just 65 in the UK
  • The array of game is particularly wonderful for first time safari-goers

More on Luxury Safaris in Kruger National Park & Sabi Sands...

Together with neighbouring parks in Mozambique and Zimbabwe, the Kruger Nature Reserve and private reserves form part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, with a combined area the size of Portugal.

All of the 'big five' - lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino - are present, as well as dozens of species of plains game and several hundred different bird species.

Original Travel has visited and recommend several of the finest luxury lodges in South Africa, offering the usual safari activities coupled with outstanding accommodation, gourmet cuisine and five-star facilities such as spas.

Quite simply there are a few better places in Africa to enjoy the safari experience in style than on a luxury safari in South Africa.

Original Highlight

The game viewing here is second to none, with expert guiding to match. What might really blow your mind, though, is the sheer luxury of some of the lodges here.

A note on price

South Africa’s USP is the sheer variety of experiences it offers (from food and drink to diving to safari), which makes it tricky to provide guide prices. A combination of Cape Town and the Winelands could cost around £2,000 per person, while upgrading to the best hotels and combining that with a luxury safari could add a few thousand to the bill.
