"Waking Up Early and Safari Drives" facts Tip by MattTB

facts, Kruger National Park: 8 reviews and 7 photos

Favorite thing: Firstly wake up early! The park gates open at 6 am at the camps and you want to be one of the first out as many good sightings can be found at dawn.

Secondly, if you want to see as many animals as possible, you need to spend as much time as possible out on a safari drive. Luckily thanks to my guide, 'the bearded heron' I was not restriced to one drive a day, I could spend all day on a drive if I wished. I did this and as a result saw the 'big five' and many other great animals!! I think my first day was full of normal sitings.. ie Zebra, Impala.. they are everywhere! Then at about noon on the second day I got my first big cat siting and everything got better from there!!

Fondest memory: The wildness, the open space full of amazing animals!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
