Kruger National Park

Kruger National Park

Drive the stunning Panorama Route, with its mountain vistas, plunging waterfalls and Blyde River Canyon views to Kruger National park, where you’ll head off in search of the Big Five. Gaze across the wild African bush and keep a look out for elephant, lion, buffalo, leopard and rhino in one of Africa’s oldest and most diverse national parks. You’ll be in an open vehicle, allowing for better views and cooler temperatures when the sun’s at its highest. But it’s not all about the animals – look out for the strange looking baobab trees and the intriguing sausage tree, so-called because it looks like sausages hang from its branches.
