Kruger Park Bush Walk

Get an unprecedented view of the wild, from the perspective of the wild animals who call Kruger Park home. Small groups of guests are guided through dew-laden grass and wildflowers by armed Trail Guides as the sun lights the morning along the horizon. As birds welcome the new day with song, you will be mesmerised by the fresh, unspoiled beauty of the bush.

This experience is a must for every nature-lover who will appreciate that it’s about so much more than just seeing the BIG 5 (and that is obviously bucket-list worthy!). It’s also about discovering other animals, birds, insects, reptiles and plant and tree species. It’s about following the spoors of wild animals who walked ahead of you and learning about everything from the intricacies of dung to the adaptation of all things wild for survival.

Please Note: The walk is not suitable for children under the age of 12, or people who have health issues that may preclude them from walking for several hours.

Sunset Drive in Kruger National Park

Sunset drives are a wonderful opportunity to have the best of both worlds – see the birds and animals who are active during the day, as well as the nocturnal birds and animals. The sunset drive is facilitated by SANParks on an open safari vehicle with an experienced guide.

As the daylight fades across the savannah, and the pastel shadows morph the landscape into a soft glow, there is peace across the bush. But the peace is soon replaced by excitement as nocturnal animals silently travel along their starlit hunting trails.  From scrub hares to nightjars and genets to leopards, the bush comes alive with a new cast, and whatever you see, you’re in for a beautiful show.

Rates: 70 EUR ; 1050 ZAR ; 80 USD/person *Subject to conversion rate at time of reservation.

Duration: 3 Hours (excludes travel time to and from the lodge).

Departure Time: Leave Royal Kruger Lodge at 15h30.

Return: Approx. 20h00.

Dress: Comfortable casual wear and a warm jacket. Don’t forget your camera and binoculars.

Night Drive in Kruger National Park

Have you ever imagined what Kruger Park looks like in the dark of night? The SANParks Night Drive offers you a whole new perspective of Kruger, as you explore the playground of the BIG 5 when it’s dressed in nothing but shadows and moonlight.

Every night, the wild performance varies, and you’ll be entertained by beautiful sights and sounds as the experienced guides help you to have a deeper understanding of the ways of the wild.
