The Kruger Area —a region encompassing Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga, and Limpopo—is known the world over as one of the greatest regions for wildlife. With magnificent scenery rich in ancient history, diverse game, and gold rush legends, there are few regions in the world that can match the extraordinary beauty of the lowveld and the majesty of her mountains.

This is the setting for dozens of wildlife sanctuaries and private game reserves such as the Sabi Sand, Manyeleti, the Timbavati, Thornybush, and Kapama, and each offers wildlife lovers the opportunity to observe game in their own quiet, hidden corners within Kruger. Game drives promise an abundance of exotic game, from zebra, giraffe, and elephants, to herds of up to 500 buffalo and mother lions playing with their cubs at night. The bush here is rich and traversing through its depths brings with it the smell of crisp air mixed with dust and wildlife. It’s an experience that stays with you forever.

Adding to the safari experience, Kruger’s exquisite and elegant safari lodges are legendary, attracting visitors who seek the ultimate indulgences, invigorating spas and wellness centers, fabulous cuisine from award-winning chefs, and the best of South African game guides and famous Shangaan trackers. Many are accessible by light aircraft charters, which run regularly throughout the area, or by easy road transfer that allow guests to see more of the region by land. Each lodge has been carefully selected and experienced by our Ker & Downey travel experts and some come with the opportunity to arrive via private jet, the ultimate in traveling in luxury.

Whether you seek small, intimate tented camps for a traditional and genuine African experience, or a luxury lodge that is the playground of celebrities and affluent travelers, Ker & Downey’s travel experts can create a dream itinerary designed just for you.
